Thanks Givio, I was going to add a few more log-cabin-ey strips on the outside, to mimic the center, but I was pushing 6" and figured I would leave that up to IceBlossom. So without the log-cabin extra strips, it might just be mimic'ing SewBiz's strips. Either way, I was glad I found some of the green polka dot so not all of the birds were flying. Hugs!

Oh what fun is coming my way! I have a couple things in mind and maybe the fabric I bought will be used...

Just talked to my son, we are going ahead with the little family party for my grandson's 1st birthday at the other grandparents house today. The air quality is really bad, don't know if you've seen the satellite shots of the smoke coming up from California and joining up with the Oregon fires, plus our own local fires but it is beyond hazy today.

Not quite where you need headlights in the day, but it is definitely yellow outside, and across the street is getting fuzzy. I'm a bit tight in the chest but it's not so bad.

travelinggramma's top arrived safely - it's now hanging on my design wall waiting for inspiration to hit.

Dug out the quilt I started a while back and got the applique finished. I use the appliquick method and I think I'm starting to get the hang of it. It's sewn down with invisible thread.

I have the outer blocks complete, so now I can add them to the center and have a completed floppy.

Hello fellow quilters,
I just wanted to let you guys know that I have been following your progress and am simply flabbergasted, gobsmacked, and amazed at what you guys are doing. Your creativity, your skills, and your ideas have inspired me so much. I have learned so much from this group. I used to think that the borders were the most boring part of the quilt, an after thought, almost. Was I ever wrong!
Like I said, just watching you guys has taught me so much. When I have had time, I had gone back and read from the beginning of this project. I felt like I was watching a quilting ‘reality’ show, where everyone was so supportive and encouraging of each other. This environment has led to some of the most amazing works of arts and craftsmanship being done right before our eyes! Thanks so much. Congratulations on your accomplishments both individually and as a group.

Wow, thank you Grandma's Girl! What an encouraging note from you.

Anyone can start another RR at any time. Just get permission from PatriceJ (board supervisor) to post a solicitation post, asking for people who would like to do an RR. All you need is 6 people because a center and 5, 6" rounds is usually large enough. Even 5 people can work. If anyone wants to start one but doesn't know how a RR goes, I would be happy to fill you in. PM me and I will talk you through it. Seems like we have more than enough interest to start another group.

Grandma'sgirl, Welcome to the Board! You look sorta new here, just since March. :-) Thanks for joining in our thread and I'm glad you are enjoying it. If you want to just browse through the pictures of the growing quilts, you can see them in the album I'm making as we go along.
