    Twinrivers: the garlic I had wondered what I would have done: two ways: one with red/green stripes little Italy and another would be red roses.. the Italian Rose theme.. my children are Italian and then Italian and then toss in a little.. Italian so we had a whole lot of garlic and flag stuff through the years. Still do and.. my baby girl is on her last year at U of Oregon.. majoring in.. Italian (wonder where that came from? phew right there out of the blue too) and last but not least she finished culinary school and wants to open an.. ITALIAN bakery. We used to drive by the garlic factory going to Yosemite every year (its in Gilroy that factory) and the kids would say NOW roll down the windows all would be going ahhhhhhh then quick! roll them up! they thought it would keep the smell in longer lol.. yeah we do garlic.

    ok now I am hungry all from reading a post on fabric. Warped puppy, oh wait where is quilter momma and her puppy? I just finished a block with grapes so maybe wine is in order.. I am pouring come on over! ok who am I kidding i cant drink.. ok green grapes fresh chilled from the cooler! come on over! jelly and toast! grape jelly! get up everyone whooo whoooo whoooooo who

    Hummmm, that was my question also. I always ask because in Boom 6 I sent the wrong note with a very pretty mauve print, the note said I was going to add Turquoise and Orange to it!!!! Guarantee I would never mix those colors, but some asked and I got the misunderstanding fixed, some didn't and I had some blocks that by them selves looked ok but no way would it work in a quilt. So now I always ask! I am going to send a pm just in case she doesn't get on board often enough to read all our chit chat.

    Linda, so where is your Daughter opening this Italian restaurant? I think I would like to move where ever it is! Yummy, I love Italian cooking, can't eat most of it but I still love it!

    I am in my sewing room working away, my husband is in bed watching some kind of tough guy movie, I can hear him in there laughing, LOL, I guess that is why I am in here sewing~ But I have to admit he did watch Beaches with me the other day, well until he fell asleep!

    speaking of getting hungry, the fabric that was died Pink and Brown, man that made me thing of Neapolitan Ice cream, I must have gone down stairs and looked in the freezer about 5 times, nope no Ice Cream~

    OK I am back to quilting, I think Bruce Willis just got the bad guys!

    Blocks

    Seven blocks done sofar. Keep on sending those F8s. I have some time next week and after that I don't know when I'll get to it. Hope to hear from TwinRiverFarms soon. I was going to do her block and ironed the fabric but am scared to proceed as mine did not have a note. I hope to figure out how to post the blocks like some of you are doing with a link in the signature line. All my F8 went out and now I am already getting anxious about getting my first blocks back.

    Annaquilts: I pm'd her and asked as i was stumped. My reply was to just go for it.. I went with river rock fabric and another with grapes as mine was a plum purple with the black tiny design (maybe it was dark purple on purple dunno now that you say yours is red/red). seven blocks so far darned it your one block ahead of me. sigh kick it up a notch.

    Marybeth she wants to open it in Oregon. I tell her come back to the bay area and charge more her home town of Los Altos is very upscale so its the right clientel the kind that can afford to still eat out. She is going to study abroad culinary in Italy. she wants to go for cooking taught in Italian for Italian vs for Americans. My little biscotti she is one sweet tough cookie.. think she will do great. Dinner at Cafe Adamo to the one with the most.. you fill in the block surely its the right answer. Me, loose marbles. the one with the most loose marbles. TADA! And we can all squeeze into Alexanders limos to get there.. maybe the hummer who wants to go in the hummer? wait til I tell him. I had my roommate in the hospital all set with me to escape out the window and call the limo to come get us.. we kept expounding onthe helicopters looking for two escapies, in designer gowns, our rears flappin in the wind, running as fast as two can with walkers and barefeet only to be found at the Fish Market chowing down on fresh garlic bread and clam chowder hounded by news teams.. you can tell we had both spent way too much time in our beds there.. my son laughed and said he would send his girlfriend in to push our rears from behind so we could SQUEEZE out the window... while he donned his cap and gloves to greet us. YOU THINK I AM GOOFY HERE you should have seen me stuck in a hospital bed for moons.. plum nuts that what it was. oh and we had a conga line going in our room too got all the nurses to join in, put a club closes at 9 on the door and well.. sometimes life is so unfunny you have to learn how to smile inspite of it. Lesson of the day: dont get stuck for any period of time with me in a small room with no other means of entertainment. It cant be good for your sanity.

    ok 2:30 sleep sleep where are you? night AGAIN.

    Ok dahlings, I am here to clear up the questions.Hubby insisted I clean house this morning, as the dog fur was all over the cats. I guarantee that I have learned my lesson and will ALWAYS put notes in from now on (hey, a first timer mistake). There are actually 3 different fabrics floating about from me, as I didn't have enough of any one to make 37 f8-s. and they will not all be put in the same quilt. Lady bugs on black just won't mingle well with purples, and red leaves were just too pretty, so they cried out to be included in the swapping. So just have fun, put any stash fabric that plays nicely with whatever color you got. Clear as mud?
    Elizabrat, I understand the garlic fetish. I keep a 32 oz jar of minced garlic in the front of the fridge, and a spoonful goes into just about everything I cook. I think what I came up with for the block will work well (DH suggested meatball fabric. I bet there is some out there somewhere...).

    Moonrise - I received your block yesterday and it is gorgeous! Thank you so much!
    Yesterday: received f8's from NanaKathy55, QuilterMomma, goldendog55 and CharlotteMarie.
    Sat. mailed grownup blocks to TheMamaHauser, Roseysue, Elizabrat and ljdugas31
    Monday will mail out blocks to Nexxus831, missgigglewings, Chewboo and Fraew
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    Garlic question: We are just starting out on the whole "grow you own" thing. This year we did corn, lettuce, and tried cantaloupes (the shoots never even made it because we got 5" of snow Memorial Day weekend).

    So we've been talking about garlic, zuchinni, potatoes, corn, and various herbs next year. But the garlic... that's where our confusion really begins.

    Do you plant it whenever? Or does it have a season? We were thinking some kind of mobile planter so that it can come in when it starts snowing in 2 months. Can anyone provide suggestions or hints?

    And also... what on earth to do with the pepper fabric!? I'm having a garden-minded morning today.

    Oh elisabrat....you have the spirit of a mischievious child. I love it. Every time I go over to the senior center to chit chat with the quilt ladies.....a bingo game is going on. I so want to run in that room and yell BINGO. But my quilting ladies restrain me. LOL. I would have joined you escaping.

    urgodschild, lol you and think alike and why the heck not yell bingo just to make them look and smile. I used to do that wave, you know the parade vana white wave? when they rolled me down for this or that test. the people in the hall just to do it too when I went by and it was hysterical to see the looks on their faces like what the.. I said hey I was going on my float (bed) in a designer gown traveling with my entourage (runner guy who pushed you around) why not wave and when I came back to my room I would yell out.. LUCY IM HOME I think those poor young men couldnt wait to dump and run when it came to my turn. I got almost 90 percent of the runners to sing karioke to me lol as we went in elevators etc. One would even hit up people with flowers and ask them if they could have one for me which well they gave me. great way to snag flowers lol (talk about making ME embarassed sheesh) but ok since your handing them out grin. me mischievious? uh.. ok. I own that one.

    bell peppers would be a bit tougher.. you could stuff them with flowers? or another veggie? have a critter sneaking a peak over the top Kelly.. um peppers in a bowl? basket? I think they are for table runners/matts so I would skip super light colors so that way if stuff gets spilled on them.. you know? just my two bits which is worth the price you paid for it. I am not getting rich here. still think roses would be good with garlic. oh now I am hungry again. Jaba thank you so much for making us all fat. Next time send out turnups. No one craves those.

    BUT! If you like salsa (I'm a Tostitos kind of girl), you can make turnip chips in the microwave. Way more healthy than actual tortilla chips. Add a bit of salt and they taste like really crappy generic chips.

    Garlic:

    When is the best time to plant garlic in the home garden? The answer is, "it depends".
    In the USA and Europe, garlic can be planted either in the early spring or late fall / early winter.

    Spring Planting
    Poor weather conditions often mean that spring planted garlic produces smaller bulbs. In addition the seed garlic must be chilled before planting in order to cause it to break out of its dormancy. That said, spring garlic planting can produce good results in the warmer Southern areas where it is often planted in late February or March. It also removes any possibility of the plant being damaged by the winter cold.

    Autumn / Fall Planting
    In more Northerly areas it more common to plant garlic towards the end of the year. In Europe there is a tradition of planting garlic on the shortest day of the year, however this is probably more for symbolic reasons than horticultural ones.

    The usual advice to gardeners is to plant fall garlic soon after the first major frost of the year, usually between mid-October and late November depending on your local climate. Garlic is generally winter hardy, however can be damaged if the temperatures are very cold and the snow cover thin. If this is the case, cover the garlic with straw to protect it.

    If all is well then the shoots of fall planted garlic should emerge from the ground in early spring. If not then you still have the opportunity to plant a spring crop.

    Received yesterday I think, just went to post office chewboo, joanelizbay. I missed alot of postings but am getting the idea my garlic fabric has become quite a topic....who da' thunk it???? Everyone left this morning, so quiet in this house I can hardly stand it, but got the house redusted, vacummed, and now am going through all the laundry. Ended up with 12 extra people, house seemed pretty small. It was really great having them all here and getting to see our great grand daughters. Oh my I am getting old, no wonder I'm exhausted. Clothes ready to fold, but will start sewing on all of your F8's tomorrow. Didn't read everything so if someone posted that they forgot to add a note or something I should know about their fabric, please repeat it or send me a PM. Gotta' get going and play catch up now, holly molly they'll all be back for Thanksgiving....that's going to be 1 big big bird.

    I've figured it out! No more consultations required (for now).

    Also, QuilterMomma, your block will be going out in the mail tomorrow. There's a picture from the link in my signature line.

    Thank you everyone. I am fairly new to quilting so I get extremely self conscious. With saying that you don't have to be nice I like honesty.
