    Well I sure hope you like it, I'm having the quilter pick design as she's so good at it. I'm with you can't wait to see my quilt, I know it will be amazing for sure. I appreciate all your time & effort your putting into it.

I am really enjoying making this for you, it's been fun using fabric and patterns that I normally wouldn't choose. Have a Great weekend!

    sounds like everyone is nearly done with their quilt tops. I have another 18 blocks to reverse sew and correct before i can put top together. however, it is not moving fast as i have been busy on other projects which also have been slowing losing my interest. I find myself wallowing in the "blahs"--no energy, no ambition, totally no get up and go. Can Spring hurry up and bring an end to these dreary overcast days so I can get back to my normal self?

    oh can I jump on that slow boat? I am thinking today I will be all but done with my blocks. I found I was short one pair of five" blocks. GREAT. Lucky for me Jaba is sending me something that is almost identical to fill in. Phew. I will have that top sewn together this week. Talk about exciting! Like Marybeth this is one I wouldnt mind owning myself. My DH is in love with it. I have never really worked with a lot of batik type fabrics before. I am loving the play on color and the variety of colors within one fabric. oh so fun.

    Miscalculated amount of one fabric, now realize I have a snafu in the current design. Nothing carved in stone yet, working on a detour around that pesky little problem.

    I just reread a few posts. I have a dumb question: Are you quilting your quilt to give or are you having it done by a professional? I was going to quit it myself but if everyone is having fancy quilting done I can have it quilted also. I do not want my partner to feel short changed now the worry has set it. I have every block but one done. All the subcomponents finished just need the corner squares and I am putting it all together. Yahooo!!!! please everyone can you give me an answer on your quilting here?

    It is strange how it is working out for my partner and me. I had thought about doing machine quilting and my partner said that she hoped I didn't mind cuz she wants to make her first attempt at fmq. I think it is awesome that we both had that idea. I have access to a LA machine, but I want to do it on my Janome 11000. Hope that helps you out a little bit.

    As the excited recipient, I hope you will do the quilting yourself. I relied heavily on SITD to quilt your quilt, but it suits the pattern and I hope you will feel the hugs and good thoughts that went into the effort at quilting it for you. So worry not, fair Linda, and have fun putting my quilt together! All the hints sound wonderful, and tell your DH to back off! Hugs, Miriam
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    Being the recipient last year of both, I truly enjoy the fact that each put their thought into how the quilt should be done. Since twinrivers loves that personal touch, go for it.

    I must be the slowest on this swap this year. I am still working on the fabrics. I have a bunch laid out and a plan, but have not gotten any further yet. be sure to be reporting into Jillaine.

    got those 8 corrected blocks appliqued--half done with corrections. couple more days of getting past the blahs and I might actually get this quilt on the frame. Especially since i finally finished quilting that birthday gift--just need to do the binding and that one will be off in the mail. I have sort of determined how I am going to quilt this one so I am ahead of the game there--just as soon as i finish the rest of the corrections, i can get them appliqued and get the blocks sewn together with the setting triangles. Hopefully the quilting will go faster than the actual sewing has.

    How is everybody doing? I have been absent for a while. I've got distracted and started quilting a twin size quilt that I put together on a mystery super bowl get together with the quilt guild. Today though, I finished fusing the last 4 applique blocks that conclude my center. I only have to blanket stitch them and that will get the center completed. This weekend we have our annual quilt show so not a lot of quilting for me.
    Elisabrat, you were asking if we are quilting or sending it out to be quilted. I will be quilting it myself. I don't do elaborated work but continue to try.
    My goal is to finish the center this month and work on the boarders.

    I have never "quilted" a quilt top. My mother has a LA so I just send them to her and she does them up. I am thinking I will try my hand at the LA at her house....ekkkk

    Melinda! you will not believe what has been going on, My Daughter moved to Tacoma, I tried calling you the day I helped her move but my cell phone was acting up. But I want to get together with you and /or your Mom, I have some work that needs to get done. Falling behind on everything with all this stuff going on with my Mom. Her health is doing a lot better, but now we are planning her 80th birthday party. I will be going to Tucoma next week, we really need to get together! Since I am "neighbors" with your mom and you with my daughter! how fun is that! I will call you when I am in town, we really gotta meet! LOL


    And yes it is almost 5:00 am and no I have not been to bed yet! I gotta get this little project finished! I hate falling behind!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    It just occurred to me as well, Tacoma is only a 4.5hour drive from my house. We usually stay at my MIL who lives in Tacoma or my DH Sister who lives in Puyllup. Small country after all. I am hoping to be going over to Bothel shortly for back surgery, would be great to be able to visit with you as well.

    Hi Elisabrat- I am doing the quilting myself.

    Brat, I was planning on sending my quilt out to be LA'd. A very good friend of mine does my quilting and I help her out by doing the binding (I know - most of you are doing the 'ugh') on her customer's quilts. It's not that the quilting is free, it's less than elsewhere. My partner and I haven't talked about how to do the quilting, so I really don't know if she's doing hers by hand or not. If she wants hers by hand, I would, but it would not be finished in time to make this year or next year's deadline!!!

    You are so sweet Linny, I just finished a mystery quilt from the 1st, you could have that one and then I could say I am about done. LOL The teaser would be in the 2013 UFO Sister Thread. I believe them to be your colors.

    Hello everyone! Yes, I'm still alive. Just "fell off the board" for awhile. It's the middle of the month; I've heard from a few of you this month, but please let me know how you're doing. And if you haven't been in touch with your partner, please do so today! As a reminder, here's how to report (along with a suggested schedule to use as a check). TwinRiversFarm wins the "prize" (if there was one) for first to complete her quilt. But she's just going to have to be patient... ;-)

    Week 6 (Feb 26): 25% - fabric cut and piecing in progress
    Week 13 (April 16): 50% - nearing completion of the top; about to sandwich
    Week 19 (May 28): 75% - sandwiched and about to quilt
    Week 26 (July 1): 100% - complete and ready to be shipped

    -- Jillaine

    Wanted to show everyone a special something my partner sent me for my birthday. It's a Asian panel and I have used one like it in a quilt, but this may end up being a pillow, who knows. Thanks again, Jane

    thanks everyone for your answers. I will quilt it myself. gulp.

    And the panel is so pretty Vanogay. What a lovely suprise. I have all my blocks finished now to assemble. maybe tomorrow.. I can't back it til next month but would be so lovely to get that finished and ready to quilt. I am NOT rushing that one. I don't mind the binding either. I do the hand stitching in clinic and it takes a few hours out of the morning. makes it go faster which is a good thing.
