    These were so much fun to play with I just had to drop everything I should have been doing and get busy cutting sashing and cornerstones. Have them all stitched together in the strips of 4 squares with sashing and cornerstones. Now just need to sew the strips to each other. Think I may be a good girl and get back to doing my SID on Billye's birthday quilt since her b'day was last week!

    Jaba, Love your quilt. The grey is lots of fun. I'm wondering myself what color I should use to pull is all together.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I liked the grey too and the outside borders are the grey and kind of blue, when I ordered the batik they called it silver. It will stretch the width of the quilting table it's an extra long king for our CA king bed. I look at it and think "what was I thinking"..alot of fabric to quilt, but I do like it and used all 48 blocks.

    Jaba, I'm thinking of making a king. How big is your sashing? Also, how big was your border? Love the blue for the border.

    Thanks when you get ready to do this again you can put me down for 6 sets and 6 twists if you are going to do the twist again. I am going to start working on my blocks this weekend. Already have a bunch of patterns saved for this size block.

    Sashing is 2" and the border is 6". It's plenty long, am actually thinking of taking 1 row off but going to put it on the bed and see from there, hindsight you know. Have a cold and the sinus headache so just didn't feel like doing it today. When I get it laid out I'll try and remember to give you the size by width and length. Just remind me....

    Yes I do TamMoo, I have a long arm it's a HQ16. Don't have the computer stuff on it for all the fancy patterns but figure for another $10,000.00 I really don't need it either. Just free motion here but it works for me.

    going to start working on my blocks for the next exchange this weekend at my retreat. I have a whole stack of patterns that I printed off from Quilters Cache and a couple of other sites. Haven't put the ones from this swap together yet, haven't decided what I want to do with them yet.
