    TE=mjpEncinitas;8316529]Help! Well this was supposed to be a surprise but I sometimes make Janice a block with all the fabrics from the Boom. I got ready to do it and I realized I had only very small scraps left from Jaba's fabric. Does anyone have two 2 1/2 " squares of Jaba's fabric left that they would be willing to mail to me ASAP? PM me if you do. I've got it all cut out and ready to go.

    I'm going to use some frog fabric I had for Kass's fabric.

    Happily our beam had about an even number of lights and darks. I'm going to make the same block I made for Libster.

    Thanks,

    This block is from my book Around the Block by Judy Hopkins. After I sent out my Boom fabric I found this 12 Days of Christmas pattern fabric fat quarter in the back of a quilt shop. I LOVED it and had to figure a way to get all 12 rows in! This pattern worked perfectly.

    Also from the Around the Block book - an Ohio Star to show off the scenic Christmas picture.

    This Holly block is from SewFreshQuilts owner Lorna McMahon and was part of her Have A Jolly Little Christmas Quilt Along
    Attachment 618693

    This block was designed by Slice of Pi Quilts' Laura Piland and is aptly named Santa's Belt

    Moda Bake Shop featured this block designed by Sharla Krenzel of Thistle Thicket Studio and is named Oh 'Lil Christmas Tree.

    And this Wreath Block was part of InspiredbyFabric Silent Night Block Sampler. I love this fabric with the gold toned pine cones.

    Hubby update: He is doing well. His home therapy visits are done and he starts outpatient therapy on Thursday. Doctor said he could start walking with just a cane, instead of a walker, as soon as he felt comfortable with it.

    Janice, I have over half my blocks done and my goal is to finish piecing them by the end of October.

    My first block is for Annt59:

    Great blocks Bibliostone, I especially like the one for Annt59, the green is perfect.

    I may now be pushing the end date and be the last one done. I had one cut and the pattern for the next chosen, and since I so seldom make blocks it takes me forever to choose one. Now my sewing machine quit working had to go in for service, grrr. The business that repaired machines retired in March, and the local man who did them died in May. My mom offered to let me use hers, but I found it needed servicing too. I did find someone relatively close and told him mine was a rush, fingers crossed.
    As I sit glowering at the empty space I think of how fortunate I am. A woman I know had complications from surgery so is out of work for 5 months instead of 2, has no disability pay so is borrowing money for rent, letting me buy groceries (my son is staying with them while we are homeless) and their car was just totaled.

    Quick reminder that all blocks are due in my hands on Thursday, November 14. There is never a push to get them done early. Please take all the time you need to finish so long as they arrive on schedule. My plan is to ship within a week of the last package arriving. Anyone who is having trouble should contact me long before we’re down to the wire so we can discuss the situation. If you have questions or problems, please get in touch by email or pm. Thanks!

    oh wow! So much misfortune. I hope you get your machine back soon but mostly I hope your friend recovers from her medical and financial injuries.

    Which books do you already have? There are three around the block books, and many websites with free patterns for 12.5” blocks. I download the ones I like and keep them in a folder on my desktop. Then they are ready to go when I need to make blocks.

    I don’t recommend the second Around the Block book unless you like using templates. Otherwise I love the other two
