    The quilting is really nice..she did a good job. I'm hoping the simple design of the quilt will be something you like. I love the fabric and know you will too.

    I am going to love it! Yours is getting done. I have a couple more blocks to do. Do you want a blue border or a brown border?

    Well I can't wait to get mine back from the quilters. Than all I need to do is the binding. This is such an awesome swap.

    Oh I tried to send mine to the quilters.. sigh her back is out of commission so its just good old me on the quilting job. I am still waiting for batting maybe on the 1st ok for sure on the 1st I will buy it sale or not. all good.its the shipping that gets me especially if its not on sale then you know the next week for sure it goes on sale free shipping and well hells bells is all I can say to that. I love the top the backing is pretty too.. sure hope you like a lot of green twinrivers because well I see lots of green.My Dh says its the blue that stands out.. my friend here says she loves the pop color that stands out which we both disagree on which is the color that pops so I guess your getting your wish everyone loves something else and if the pop is seen differently by others well its ALMOST like a quilt with movement lol only its the tricky eye movement on color vs block motion.. almost but no cigars. sigh.

    You have fun. I will decide then maybe both. Will have to see how big it is getting. I am in bed recovering from surgery. Not able to get up and move yet which is frustrating. I thought I would be able to do sewing and such right away. Nope apparently there was more done than I thought.

    Well, don't have to tell you I'm sure, but rest and sleep are so restorative.......we can always quilt. I'm sure you will heal nicely. Till then, prayers that you do.

It sure isnt here in the sierra's in CA. it was in the low 20's this morning and we 'toasted' up nicely to a balmy 48 with wind. yuckeroo. I still had my front door open all day. something about fresh air.. lots of clothing is what that something is layers and layers

    The sun came out yesterday and today. I went to work today. Dragging but a bit, but making it thru. The boss brought me in flowers, a Chai Tea, and gave me a bonus. Said I was much needed here at the office. Was I so surprised. I felt gracious enough they let me out of here to get the surgery done, but to bless me so. Now we can go to family in a better vehicle that may work better for my back. Thinking that sleeping in a full size bed with my husband is so not going to happen. I may go out to my mom's. If that be the case, will take the dog with us instead of board him some place.

    i did not get any sewing done on Linny's quilt, oh darn. But I did put them up on the design wall so I can look at them and see how they play together and I may have to rip one block and make a different one than what I have on there. Not sure I like the colors of the scraps in that block to play with the others. Seems I am being consistent on the color of red that goes in the center of the blocks. This one has a red purple and just not looking quite right. Will see when I finish the others. Well, back to work, my break is over.

    WOW have I missed a lot lately!! Quiltermomma glad you are doing better. I posted an updated photograph in the gallery of Mindless' quilt. I am currently sandwiching and pinning the should have it all set to quilt up this weekend with the next big storm!
    I just have to say that I have to greatly appreciate the friends I have made on this board. I have myself been going through a rather rough spot in life. And Mindless sent me this wonderful surprise in the mail! I cried, but it was a good cry, because it was a nice spot of light in the dark days. I hope everyone else is good and staying warm with all this crazy weather happening lately.

    Sewing machine is fixed and ready for pickup in the morning (1 hr. away). 2 weeks of being in the shop, I'm ready to sew again. Glad to hear everyone is moving along with their quilts, can't believe it's the middle of April already. Have a great weekend everyone!

    So glad your machine is fixed, I had to stop sewing for about a week, my hand was killing me. It was on the top and I couldn't even pick up my coffee cup. Guess I was doing to much paper piecing. Still waiting to hear from my quilter, but she has 7 of my quilts to do.

    Update...finally got parts in for my 301, DH got it fixed and I was on my way to SID. Then our internet goes down for 5 days, talking about withdraws. Computer also messed up, so had to look for another one, and then transfer everything over to the new one....stress, stress!

    Last 2 days, been sewing and ripping out..think I will take a break and DH and I are going fishing...surely there will be no stress in fishing, I don't even care if I don't catch any, just sit and relax in the boat.

    Sorry, friends, but I had to let off steam, feel so much better. Thanks

    Sorry you are having trouble with your hand. I hope resting it will take care of it. I am down to adding your borders and it is looking so cute. My quilter is excited to see it also and says she will drop it in whenever I get it to her. Rest that hand and yourself and have a great weekend.

    Thanks so much. I need to rest it up as hubby is having a nuk stress test Monday and they said it could take up to 4 hrs, so gonna bring some hand embroidery work and hope I can work on it. We still have lots of time. I can't wait to see what my quilter does to your quilt. You have a super weekend as well.

    Just got back from a short trip to Alabama for a week......QuilterMomma, you've got lots of time. Right now is a good time to maybe "think" about what you'll do next. I know I've said it before......rest and relax as much as you can...it does pay dividends.

    Well Twinrivers dont hate me but I am having your quilt quilted. I just have too much trouble getting things into my machine a regular brother and making them come out straight. I get truly unhappy about bunching or crooked. especially crooked. I do know I put lots of time and thought into the top however and think it will shine nicely in your little study/sewingroom and the cats will love it I will do the binding part as well apparently its not every exciting to do (lol). I am not grand but not the worst out there so I am excited to finish and mail. all depends on the health of my quilter wishing her well quick regardless if she can quilt it. just being well is a lovely lovely thing that i understand completely. Do one, the other parts will come too.

    Never fear, EB, I will love and cherish my quilt because it came from you, and I hope you will like yours, too. Don't forget to use your galloping horse when you inspect it, or just let the cats do the critique for you. Take care of yourself each day please, and I hope all our QB friends and/or loved ones do the same.
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    Trying to Linny, just got back from Montana for four days. I am the bad sheep by my new SIL because I would not let her work my girls like a white slave. Yes, I am frustrated. Love my brother but there is a line of having to do to much and then travel for 16 hours and me with back surgery on top of it all. Good think I live 8 hours away and don't get back there to much.
    So much for venting. I am feeling a bit better, at least getting off meds today and hoping can work well without them. I have a few to many irons in the fire now that I look at my work area wondering which one do I get out of the way first. Or better yet, which one do I want to work on first. LOL
