And maybe here's the 3rd block? The first time I cropped the image before reducing the size, I don't know if that is why I sometimes cannot get a pic to post?

Thanks Raggiemom---first time on this! Just finished having our house sided --moving stuff for the new windows
for next month. Very stressful--have 2 baby/kid quilts to finish--hoping to get to that on MOnday. Trying hard to
get back into sewing/quilting.

There is something so sweet, charming and even elegant about a quilt made in blues and white, I just love that combination so much. Your quilt is going to be stunning!

When I post pictures, I always crop first, then reduce the size before I post, so that shouldn't be the reason why you can't post pictures. My only suggestion is make sure it says on the window that it's been uploaded and you see it listed before you close the window. When they changed up the boards, I had a similar issue but discovered I was rushing through it too fast.

fktsewing, welcome. I’m glad you’re joining us.

I’m glad no more spiders were found!

Dang—107 is hot!

Today was a good day. Picked up my stuff at shop and visited with friend for a bit. I finished one hangin sleeve and started a second one. I did pull out the heat n bond lite to hopefully inspire me to start tracing appliqué shapes tomorrow. A friend of mine offered to let me buy her Janome 9400, upgraded to 9450 for $1500. I’m kind of tempted!

Got the fan on and Joni Mitchell playing...so nice to be sewing and listening to her. I'm about half way done with my elf pillow top. He's really kind of a cute Santa. That's OK. I like him. It's still pretty smokey in, "Big Town," but it's not as bad here, closer to the coast. It too dang hot to cook, so I bought some prepared salads for dinner. No cooking for me tonight. Yeah!!!!

I managed to get a bit of sewing done today. First I worked on the hand quilting of hubby’s quilt. Getting closer to finishing that. I also finished my Sept. Cotton Cuts mystery clue 2 and some leader/ender blocks.

Busy making quilts for sister who donated her kidney to her sister! Amazing, huh? Pattern may be called Crossroads. I forget and I've made it several times. Fast, easy and best of all scrap friendly. Finished one top yesterday and busy cutting scraps for second quilt. One sister already home but other sister who received kidney will be in a little longer. Found this pic on Pintrest.

Love your Number # 2 block, Quilting Vagabond. I know it is the fabric that drew me in but the variation of a simple traditional block adds new twist.

Everyone's blocks and quilts are gorgeous. Ginger--I love your string quilt. That is a great way to use up scraps and finish with a beautiful quilt. I didn't even get to sew yesterday but hopefully I can get into the sewing room and sew some

So, here's my Santa Elf, so far. He still needs a good pressing and squaring up. He's a little wobbly looking because hes laid out on my bed. He will also get some borders all around. I'm almost out of background fabric, so I had to take in the seams where the arrows are to be able to use what fabric I had left.
