    Beatiful JoaneLizBay! Thank you for sharing the picture. Hand quilting would sure add to the quilt. I would have a hard time parting with it too. Maybe this one is for you.

    Wondering where you've been Fraew, or maybe it's been me. Busy around here but think I'm getting back in the groove. All those envelopes downstairs are staring at me but I am totally ready for bed tonight and know if I go sew it will be a big mistake. Tomorrow another day. Have a good night everyone, at 10 pm this ole' lady needs to go nite nite.

    You ladies might get a kick out of this request from my son (8 years old) today:

    "Mom, wouldn't it be cool if you could do the cowboy boot thing (he saw the block I made over the weekend) and make a quilt of everyone's faces? I think you need to make a block that has all of Alice (our dog) because she's smaller than humans so maybe you could make her fit life-size."

    Um... suuuuuuure. I'll get right on THAT idea.

    If I tried to make face-blocks, I'm pretty sure we'd all come out looking like Charlie Brown & Shrek had babies.

    I did not received any squishes today but sending a whole bunch home, going to post pic soon. I have a few I am setting on till I get to town to buy fabric, maybe this Saturday!!! The rest are headed home.

    Now on to cutting some "Candy" 2.5 squares. I have the hugest bag full of 2.5 squares I could almost make a Queen sized quilt... Not saying I would, but... I might!

    Have a great one ladies! I look for more squishes tomorrow!

    I love your quilt~ It is so cool!

Im thinking Im going to hand quilt it to make it more "beleiveable" but machine quilting would sure go faster! I only have 3 to hand quilt...ugh. I have several patterns from Windham with Civil War theme so Ill try to pick a good one for your block! The only bad part is I LOVE all the reproduction material I have and its hard to pick out a color!

    I received F8th from annaquilts and my block back from Moonrise. I had fun and made my block for Moonrise and then made my first block for Yosamitesa but made a major boo boo in my cutting so had to cut more so I ended up making two blocks for you. The second one is just under 12.5 inches so if you don't use it in your block I will not be heartbroken. I pulled fabrics for three more blocks tomorrow and will pick out the blocks tonight. This is so much fun.

OMGOSH. We put them in a Baggie to keep them SAFE and had to keep THAT hidden from the chickens... I'm the worst grandma ever because they've gone to visit the Alaska grandma(I'm the Texas Gma) and I found his Baggie of grasshopper legs and chucked it! Papa says he'll get him more grasshopper legs if he misses the old ones...

    Ok so I spent time shopping in my stash and figuring out patterns. The following ones have been fabric matched and patterns picked out. Tomorrow it will be cutting and sewing in this order:
    Goldendogg55
    Missgiggles x 2
    Fraew
    Anastasia
    Sapdoggie
    RoseySue.

    I am also doing them in order that I received the fabrics in. It is fun finding for new patterns that I have never tried before

    Thanks Anna! If you see any colors in that picture that you really like let me know and Ill use it in your block! I have quite a bit of it left over! Hope you find the panels if you want to use them. The Civil War has always been a fascination for me..wish I had the furniture and house to really show off the quilt!
    People may not remember what you looked like or what you said but they will always remember how you made them feel!

    This is the link to my albums for all Boom swaps.

    Scrappy is great! So if you have little snippest left then put them in. The theme is Patriotic Americana/ CW so darker "reds" or like reds/ cremes to browns and muted gold and dark blue/ blue greys. I see a lot of pretty fabrics in your beautiful quilt. So if you'd be willing to share some of the left overs to make my block I would love it. It would also remind me of your quilt and make it very special.

    No new envelopes, thank you thank you that box is sorta getting full of to do's! I love the general quilt wonder if panels like that might be avail from reproduction fabrics.com? also ebay has quilt labels for sale, some cute some not so much some highly expensive too.. usually get three to six labels all in all.

    Jaba what a good looking bunch you are, and they wouldnt eat your giant potato? WHAT? kids these days just dont appreciate the value of hard work and all that fish stuff.. maybe half the dose next year huh?

    I need to get four blocks done today or try hard to get four done. wish me oodles of luck. I might need it. Yesterday went very well at Stanford. Next month find out if I am going to get on that transplant list or not. I think there is a very high chance I will. I sure hope so. AND the dentist I saw yesterday is going to give me a new front tooth.. for free. And fix a couple more while she is at it. how incredibly nice is that? I am truly blessed so today is a lucky day. all days are lucky days. Its just how you look at it. Already had a baby deer waltz right by the kitchen window as I type.. six feet from me and that is a lucky day right there in my books. Everything else is a bonus.
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
