    I am getting my fabric ready today as I have an unplanned afternoon off - not feeling the best so decided to come home early from work.
    I am sending everyone a different color and asking that they only use that color or fabrics that read the color they received, as many or as few fabric as they choose can be included.
    I am going to put this small quilt together with the QAG method, my first attempt.
    I have three quilts waiting for the binding and hope to get at least all of the binding sewn on the front so I an start the hand sewing.

    Mona, I'm asking so I understand what you want exactly: Are you asking for different shades of the same color we receive to be used in the block we make for you?

    Fun, Mona I have fabric set aside to do this exact same thing. I loved how Traveling Grandma’s turned out when she sent out a similar request

    Mona G, that sounds fun. I look forward to seeing your fabric. Today I’m QAYG with wide sashings. The blocks are quilted so I’m on the short between-the-blocks sashings. I’ve done a couple of quilts this way and each time it gets easier with better results. I hope you’ll like the process. I love it because it opens up the option to quilt a piece I would normally send to the LA.

    I'm looking forward to working on the blocks - I've been in a bit of a piecing "rut" for a while. Though I have gotten almost caught up on quilting my tops, and I'm having fun with the embroidery machine.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    After 2 days of straightening and cleaning the sewing room, it was very inviting this morning. Now just need to sew on the last round by hand this evening. I included a small piece of this blue in my packets but if you only need 2 colors the main fabric and white is fine. While I was waiting on my envelopes to mail my fabric, I got a text from my sister saying she had moved. So I thought this quilt should be for her, and blue is her color. I might do another of this with the focus fabric around the edge. The blue and the white seem more prominent in this one.

    wow that pic looks large, I need to check my settings.

    Really, don't worry about the pic being big. Those of us who may not have the best vision love them this size.

    GramE, the block is lovely and gives a hint of how beautiful the quilt will be. Your sister will be lucky to receive it.

    I am ready to start. I spent the weekend making Cars outfits for my grandsons and giving a White Dress Master I picked up last week a face lift.

    What adorable grandboys, Hav4! Since the arrival of these two, maybe you should consider upgrading your user name to Hav6boys...

    Hav4boys, the machine makeover looks great but I like those smiles even better! Those grands just hold your heart in their hands, don't they? I have a 5 yr. old grand who would love the car outfit.

    Since I already had these cut out, I sewed them this afternoon. I think I'm really going to like this quilt.

    Two more-the black sky is my fabric for this group. I'm asking for just one bright tone-on-tone be added to it.

    I see you made your star block. The pink looks like wood grain almost. Your quilt will most definitely be colorful.
