    Well, let's try this again. Sorry for the confusion. These blocks are for Suzisue, Irish Mom and Cheesehead.

    What an amazing quilt Janice, such a lovely quilt. What a nice gift! I'm sure you will cherish it forever!

    I've got a couple of contributions today. I didn't make them all today, rather decided to post in clusters which saves computer time which means more sew time!!

Itís in a corner so I can only cut from one spot. Itís inconvenient but has been workable for 20 years. An upgrade is very welcome anyway. What is your cutting surface? My table will be abt 60x 25 and I cannot find a large enough Olfa mat to cover it. Would you use two smaller mats or is there another product that would work? Any ideas welcome.

    Libster, your pkg arrived today. Thank you! Iím out of town and will return Monday. My house sitter has tour pkg in her hands. Thanks!
    i use the largest fiskers mat they make. It is a 24 x 36. I bought an library table at an auction and the mat fits perfect.

    MJP, sorry to hear about your mom. Glad she is in a better place for her current needs.

    Annt59, great blocks. I love the tree block.

    No sewing for me this weekend. After three people quit, I got called into work both Friday and Saturday. I have both Monday and Tuesday evening off, hopefully I can get my creative juices flowing.
    Happy Sewing, Lisa E.

    I don't know who made the hunter's star, but if you want to "save" your block for another project what I have done w/ blocks that come out just a tad to small, since you can't add a tiny border to the edge is to add a wider border to the edge and make it a "dissapearing" block. Add the seam allowances (4 of them) plus the total amount you need to add the the small block make this your border size, sew it on, cut the block into 3rds both ways, take your 9 squares rearrange into something that looks cool sew your new 9 patch.

    Nice block Annt, I especially like the tree great fabric choices really make it pop.

    Marija, I just finished your block. To me the fabric and colors you chose seemed very modern / contemporary, so I got out my paper, pencil and rulers and drew out my version of modern / contemporary. It is a different form of "stack and whack" then I usually do. I used the back side of my fabric for this one, the blue in the picture shows slightly brighter then it actually is, it is lighter then your fabric but still has the "moody" tone yours does. I sweated out this one for the amount of fabric in the f8, I had measured and thought I had enough w/ some to spare, but somewhere along the line I must have miss added b/c I didn't have any to spare but was able to get just enough. Hope you like it.

    Hello Boomers! Just popped in to peek at all of your beautiful blocks and admire Janice's quilt - it sure is lovely and clearly made with much love. I'm hopeful it will forever convey our caring sentiment.

    Zozee - I must be your boom spirit buddy as I was the one who made the last block on the 2nd row Quite the coincidence that we had the same idea.

    So, so many amazing blocks this boom - it's delightful to come in and take a peek at your beautiful work!

    I tried to edit this but was to late, that seam allowance is for both sides of fabric so 1/2 inch for a total of 2 inches

    Good afternoon Boomers!

    Nice to log in and see all the amazing blocks! Kass, your paper piecing is amazing!

    Janice, I repurposed a large heavy table I found at the good will. I put locking wheels on it to elevate it and give me the option to move it when I need to get on all sides. It was heavy enough I was able to put hooks on the underside to hang my rulers on.

    I mailed both groups today so your blocks are on the way to Janice ladies. Sent tracking number Janice. Beautiful blocks! vikkim your table looks perfect, love the way you have your rulers. I can't quite do that without ruining a really good pool table but I do have them hanging on the wall.

    Great blocks, Vicki that block you made for MJP is outstanding.

    I got one more done today for Cheese, these low volume, pastel blocks are the most challenging for me, hope you like it.

    VikkiM, totally love the block for MJP. Your color placement is wonderful.The others are beautifully done as well.

    As for your re-purposed table, it's exactly what I'd like to do but I'd probably have to go a bit smaller. I've ditched the other idea in favor of much more what you've done. I can probably find a somewhat smaller table, ask DH to put locking heavy duty casters on it and cover it partially with a cutting mat. I love how you have what amounts to multiple stations for the various aspects of quilting. Love it. Thanks so much for sharing the pic!

    edited to add: After 20 years of quilting, this past weekend i finally hung up my rules on the wall. One tiny nail for each one. Each has it's own place. And it took me 20 years to be comfortable with putting a dozen or so infinitesimal holes in a wall. Good grief!

    Nice to log in and see all the amazing blocks! Kass, your paper piecing is amazing!

    Gorgeous blocks Kass! I have trouble with cheeseheads and Marijas fabric. Anne it was great to see your blocks too.
    Yours will help inspire me with those fabrics. I have trouble with two color blocks and low contrast combinations.

    I get to quilt today. Vikkim yours was done before I left. I just have to square it off.
