    oh thank you so much there is this tiny dot on the finger scrap of Abbys fabric.. it looks red to me. phew. oh so glad I asked.

    fabric I have yet to receive:
    nancia
    tam moo
    1000 projects
    areinn
    daisy
    linda58
    marcialee

    if you have sent me some and I dont have it PM and let me know what it looked like and I will do a double check. off to sew on abbys moms have a great day everyone and once again thank you for answering that question. Still want to know what the heck a grown up block is... adults? is a block for children a kids block? you got me. I never thought of blocks other than as blocks.. stumped guys. I mean some of these fabrics ie frogs.. is going in a kings size quilt unless that is one big little kid I think its an adults quilt.. so its not based on the fabrics. Who made up this term anyways? please post a list of all new terms and meanings ok? I am slower than molasses some times. Curiosity may have killed the cat but it ain't going to get me.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Linda, a grown up block is a F8 that grew up... into a block~ in other words it is just a block heading home after arriving as a piece of fabric! I don't know who coined the phrase but, it took me a little while to figure out what it meant also. I am so glad you got a new machine, I imagine it is really fun to learn all of it's secrets... Do you name your machines? Mine are all named! At first hubby didn't get it but now he understand which one I am talking about, but honestly I name everything, I don't know how it got started, I think when my Mom used to name her cars!

    I have taken some time off from sewing also, I was not up to par and my sewing showed it! Today I am finishing some Aprons, meeting with one of my clients who I mend for... I hate mending but it helps finance my way to Seattle!
    I am going next month for a week! Did I tell you I am going to babysit my Granddaughter for a week while my daughter takes a class with my sister... Some kind of patient care class! I am just so darn excited to be watching the little darling... that was a great idea you had!

    off to run, good thing i love the view up here it would get boring real fast. Very nice blocks going home.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I did but had the same problem. I did the best I could do. It seems I hit most that run out of fabric and then send me smoething that is supposed to go with the fabric that they ran out. This is hard quilters. I am sweating it and hope my blocks go with your main fabric. I really tried hard. Hopefully I post pictures soon and then you can see what I came up with.

    Thanks for the information. I am sending the penquins off to goldendog. Ihave finished making anna quilts, missgigglewings, moonrise, goldendog55, and ok darla. Will send off tomorrow. I have not received from the following:

    1000projects
    arein
    daisey
    Lv2sew2011
    marcialee
    mosher92
    Nancia
    sustraley
    Tam...moo
    pinklotus
    Extra ones
    lovingisabella
    quilting mommy

    there is still tomorrow to see what the postman brings me. BUT I leave for New England on Wed. So I will take the squares with me that I have and will mail them out to you all from New Hampshire. So any squares that come into my home while I am gone I will have to wait until I return on the 27th. Now I have my son who has been good about keeping me posted on what comes in although he sometimes he goofs up on that but... hey he tries. The sad part is I will have to wait until I return to see my grown up blocks but then on the other side of the coin...it will be fun coming home to all those squishies to open. I will still be able to get on my computer once in a while in NH so I will try to keep up with all of you.
    Dreaming of New England while being stuck in So. Calif.(the asphalt jungle of the world.) But hey the Happiest Place on Earth is here.

    Fraew your fabric is adorable. I hope you like the pattern I choose. It is an old CW pattern but I thought it would look very modern with your fabric without loosing all the of the bigger print.

    I got a beautiful block from Roseysue:

    Name:  2012-09-03_18-21-29_13.jpg
Views: 106
Size:  1.02 MB

    Apparently, my neighbors have been receiving my mail all week and just came in from out of town to see a stack of mail they didn't really want... but I did!

    @Nancia, your F8 was in that pile.

    I am hanging my head in shame here, I am about to post a very lovely block from... I lost that piece of paper. I suck. Could you please stand up (post please) here and let everyone know who you are so you can get the true credit you deserve. I love the block, heck I love them all.. like I said before one piece of fabric and so many interpretations.. so cool. Sending out some blocks tomorrow, I believe Jaba your ruby block is coming home a couple days after your berry block and Nexxus tada! did it, truly challenging as I dont care to work with solids yet I think it might hit the mark.. lots of pics received and sent for both diamonds and rubys in my folder if you want to peek.

    this is Meowee doing her famous sea otter pose. I am about to pop off to bed and with luck can play sleeping otter too. night ya all!
    ps Marybeth I am green with envy over this also. I want to see my granddaughter sheesh. I take back that idea. Babysit who ever heard of such a thing.. plan that nap when you get home. You will need it for sure.

    ok you got me I peaked. Annaquilts you do amazing work and I have to ask.. do you sleep too? your FAST. I work with scraps also, mostly donated fabrics. I rarely get to shop for them and sometimes I look at those scraps and think when will I EVER use that... well.. I use THAT often lol. Some of my donated pieces are as big as a yard most 1/4 or smaller (like 6 inches). I cant bring myself to throw them away and when I applique they work great. Like the Henrietta squirrel one I did those tiny pieces, great scarves and pumpkins and acorn houses.. no waste with fabric. Of course I am sure we all have this problem.. I can use that for something later.. and the scrap box gets bigger and.. well its people like Annaquilts who prove scraps can have a purpose and a beautiful one at that. Morning fellow diamonds. Another lovely day in paradise here. Oh wait its going to be 90 again. Joy of all joys.

    Thank you for your kind words. I love the scrappy look. I started buying them from other quilters. Sometimes I don't sleep and sometimes I am sleeping when I should be quilting. I am a compuslsive quilter. School is back, starting today, so I am sure my quilting will slow down.
