    That sounds pretty! I need loads of practice before my feathers will look good, if ever...

    My feathers aren't perfect either but I still like them because it was a design I always liked and was very unsure I could do them because I thought they were too hard. I was so happy that I was able do it that I want to try again.

    That sounds beautiful, QueenB! I love the look of quilted feathers. I did them once on a border. They turned out okay and I want to try them again, too. I look forward to seeing yours!

    QueenB can’t wait to see your feathers.

    Sewbiz your leaves flow so nicely on your quilt I bet your feathers would also.

    Hello there, Sooners. Now that the blocks for Later have shipped, Iím going to take a few days off and then start working on a plan for the Joanelizbay blocks I received from you. A couple people expressed interest in helping to make a quilt so Iíll be in touch with them and keep you all abreast of the plan, when there is one. Thanks!

    Hiya, I am getting my sooner blocks delivered with my laters and look forward to admiring them this weekend.

    QBJ, I also like quilting my own quilts. Look forward to seeing yours completed.

    I have one larger one and I am trying to decide if I want to quilt it or have one of the many women I know with long arms quilt it. Hmmm.

    Yesterday, I went to a sewing party at a friend’s house and made a retreat bag. Once i get photos, I will post but probably not until next week.

    Janice, could you put this one in the album too... also a Sooners quilt? Somehow it got overlooked.

    I have 14 blocks made by the group and 3 unused F8s that can probably be used to make 4-5 more blocks if Iím careful. Does anyone have any suggestions for a quilt or perhaps two small lap quilts? Suggestions welcome!

    Joan's blocks came out pretty... I make lap quilts with 9 blocks plus sashing and borders about 2.5 to 3" wide.

    I think I am going to sign off on this thread now so wanted to remind Janice to please post my two finished quilts (above) to the Completed Boom Quilts gallery. Thanks to Janice and everyone for a great swap!

    I think 2 small lap quilts with 2.5 " green sashing in between each block and around the outside with a 4" tan or cream border.

    Joan's blocks do look nice altogether like. I second the two small lap quilts.

    Ladies, I feel so bad that I have not done anything yet with all the beautiful blocks you made me! I love them and really want to start, but I'm just so exhausted nowadays! Sometimes crying tired. I know it's the end of pregnancy exhaustion and it will pass, but in the meantime, I have just had to slow waaaay down. I'm so hoping Baby comes as soon as full term (3 weeks aways) is official! The tornado thunderstorm the other day nearly put me into preterm labor, but I was able to sleep it off, so false labor.

    NZQ, rest up and try not to fret. All will be well.

    Oops, just saw my typo. I have 15 completed blocks as you can see from the pic. If I go with two small quilts with nine blocks each, I’ll need only three more. I’ll see how I feel about the blocks when I actually start work on them in 2 weeks. A couple are off-sized so they’ll need to be adjusted regardless of quilt size and style. That’s the starting place.

    Janice, Those blocks will look nice as lap quilts such soft colors.

    NZquilter, I too hope the baby comes soon. I hope you and all in the path are safe during the storms.

    Here are two quick finishes in time for Memorial Day. I cut the edges off the table runner but you get the idea.

    Janice on my adventure out shopping today I found 2 more yards of Joanelizbay's fabric if you need more. It needs to be washed.
