    I am hoping I get mine done by end of May. DH will be out of town and a three day weekend then, will be great focus time. Been so busy with yard work and garden that I haven't done any sewing hardly at all.

    Jane, let me know when you're ready to mail. I think I have a box, but will go check that out and I'll be ready when you are. I'm really excited to see what is coming!!! And I hope you like the way yours came out. That's always the 'other side of the coin'.

    I swear to you that I am going to learn this camera-thingy so I can post a picture ! I have started auditioning empty boxes to mail your quilt in, and I will miss having it on my wall (sniff), but my NEW quilt will look awesome there ( YEAH!). Do we have to wait for the thumbs up from Jilliane to mail them? Ooooh, so exciting!
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I printed off Jane's address today so I can get the box ready. My sister is coming this weekend for the Quilts of Valor meeting and she really wants to see the finished product. After that, I'll have it boxed and ready to go as soon as we get the green light....

    Am I a hoarder or what! I just found a Thank You card from one of my partners last year, NancyJo. I still have the beautiful family photo she sent along. What a treat.

    Ok I learned a lesson on this quilt: when mixing batiks and cottons one has to be very careful of the stretch especially on the binding. Mine waffled a bit? What I did wrong: I had a long strip of fabric I sewed on as binding and cut when I hit the end. Instead of doing what I should have which is cutting a strip of fabric the length I needed and fitting it on as I sewed. This would have prevented that bit of waffle. (wave?). sigh lessons learned. still love that quilt. it will look smashing on your wall or even better yet on your lap!

    I am piecing the back so it is not plane. My goal is to sandwich it tomorrow and then I'll start the quilting in my home machine. Looking forward to it. I really want to start that phase already so I don't have to rush myself to meet the deadline. I am worried now that my partner hasn't been on the board no has answered PM or emails but I love the quilt and enjoyed the process, wish I had more interaction with my partner.

    Hey Nexxus!

    I am quilting mine so it is taking me a while. I have also had to go out of town for work a few weeks and am leaving again today, but I think I can get it done by the end of May. (Fingers crossed).
    Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day next weekend.

    Well I have the binding sewen on now to hand stitch it down. Dose anyone else press the binding after sewing on? I find if I press it down it stitches so much faster.

    Asking for Prayers for the people of Moore, OK. My oldest daughter teaches in Oklahoma City at a school about 10 blocks from the destruction, kids and parents both were very scared. My other daughter is in Tulsa, they are keeping that city on alert also.

    i second your prayer call. I am so sad for those affected by this disaster. I hope everyone is thankful for what we all have. a roof? our belongings which matter so much.. our lives are not touched. But for those who are now forced to start over, who lost it all, who were frightened like there is no tomorrow.. I hope you give your heartfelt best wishes for them. If you can help them do it. If you cant send a thought of hope. They sure need it now.

    2 years ago a tornado hit our town and took out many homes and hit the elementary school directly. Thank God (and we did!) it was a sunday afternoon and the school was empty, and although 3 people died, we were unbelievably lucky. Now it has really hit home just how blessed we were. I know our town will be sending all we can to help.
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I like, blue yeah!!! wondering what the rest looks like. Getting excited. Hey did we set a date to be ready to mail. I know you have things coming up here real soon. I am still assembling the blocks, but have decided on the border and have enough for the binding. Wont take me long to quilt since I have the longarm out in the garage to get r done with. Feeling better as long as I don't lift to heavy and no more digging holes, muscles don't want me working them that hard yet. yes, I won and the 22 plants of tomatoes are in the ground. Victorious! All gardening is finally done till the rain stops then will do some weeds, but they are not real excited to come up thankfully. Let me know my deadline date please!
