    A picture of all my beautiful grown-up blocks together.

    Here is one of all of them and then individual pictures.
    Sorry the pictures are not that good as DH helped me and took them with his cell phone. Also I did not iron them yet.

    I think it is just a bad sewing weekend for me! I had to rip out the 2nd block I made for moonrise twice!!! I haven't had this much trouble in a long time. Needless to say, I don't have much fabric left to send back. And my #2 swapper on the block next is .....oh my....yosamitesa's 'Cat in the Hat', going to think about that one for awhile! going to get me a cup of tea and think about that muffin and strawberry jam

    This is adorable and so quick! I made one in no time. I was thinking we could send them directly to her, and if we put a get well wish and signature on the block it doubles as a card! If later she wants help assembling them we can work it out, I'm sure.
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I think it's a great idea and let me tell you I admire this woman. She works full time, has a young child and has severe health issues plus helps run swaps. She doesn't whine about it she smiles and helps us all with our groups. I have health issues myself, have young kids at home and whine constantly about this or that. I am going to take a little time to reflect on how wonderful April is. Thank you April.

    the counter if still full of all those beautiful jars of jam.. only one taker my hubby.. sigh. he loves strawberry jam and I fear there might not be much left if he gets at it. eats it with a spoon good thing I make low sugar still a ton of sugar in it sigh..

    got one block for anastasia in rubys done and Aprils heart block. another set to cut tonight.. gonna go take a short nap however so I dont mess up the measurements. I am grand at seeing cut 4.5 and cutting a nice long 4.25 strip for no apparent reason like I check it twice before I cut do the finger, block on block two across the cutting tool and I see I have it right only to see.. oh noyou didnt. how to not end up with enough fabric and rethinking your pattern .. so slow is good. that scant quarter inch sorry it sucks. it should be 1/4 inch and thats it, blocks then be 12 inches period and well thats my opinion. I am now using kellys technique of cutting up 1/4 if you have a block onto of a block sewn together then cut into two units.. you can trim down you can not however trim them up.. it is working. ALSO blue tape showing the quarter inch line going from just infront of needle to down the front of machine, painters tape works wonders. Then I eye it closely so its exactly a toothpick size away from that line as itmoves into and under the needle and tada almost no trimming at all.. why machines dont have that line if everything needs a stupid scant 1/4 inch why isnt it on the machine already? new design is what they need lol my new low end brother.. is way easier now to get that line than my old old singer. dont know why but its true. holds the fabric moves easier and its easier to gage and move with the fabric. all else fails nexxus pencil mark that just under quarter inch mark on the back (ok use a quilters pencil) and then sew on that line only til your eye is trained to get it. just my humble opinion.. I am just now getting it most of the time and freely admit that was my nemisis and still is.

    Ever have one of those sewing decades? That's how I get UFOs!!!

    I received marcialee's F8 today. Sorry...putting that beauty in my stash and replacing it with something else. Did my F8 make its way to you?

    And...I received this beauty from Chewboo:

    BTW - Loving this swap!
    Fraew, yes I received your F8th. I believed I listed it with others prior to getting it, but if I forgot I apologize. Glad you liked my fabric. I think it will be a beautiful wedding quilt.

    hey everyone, wishing you a grand day once again. should be beautiful its nice and cool this morning 50 which is a pleasant way to start the day.. ready for fall to show up. I love the fall. If you had a business card and some ofyou do by the way, or a calling card what would you put for your picture on it? I would have fall pumpkins and leaves. I love the fall. btw where does one get those things? I need printed labels for the next swap and wonder so many of you have them and well it sure does look easier than hand writing it all.

    better get quilting. company tonight for dinner (joy) and then the kids are coming tomorrow for a few days and my house does NOT look like Jabas (hers is perfect I swear) and well busy busy busy and its my good day. Maybe I will hide and they cant find me? hand out dark glasses and lose the light bulbs.. they wont notice that I havent vacuumed.. shoot not enough glasses.. well its 6:30 I had better get sewing before I have to get to real stuff. boring. I like the sewing way better.

    Elisabrat if you'd see my sewing room this morning after yesterday's marathon you wouldn't say it's perfect. I have so many little v's all over that floor, it looks like I had different carpet laid in there. Oh well, still have 2 to do today and I'll see what the mail brings. I know you all probably think "oh my ___" but my Bronco's won the season opener last night and I'm on cloud nine. Can't help it, love football!!! and what could be better than 31 to 19 against the steelers. 1 down and upteen more games to go though, but so far so good. Any muffins and jam left,tell that hubby of yours to leave 1 jar for me!
    Marcialee, I afraid your block is going to take a very long time getting back home to you. I look at that beautiful fabric and just want to squeeze it to death ,my lord it's beautiful!! What line is it please, where do I find it? I want a quilt from it now, not tomorrow, more like yesterday. Guess I better go get ready for the day and make some more mess. Oh Elisabrat forgot to tell you, I'll try to get there early enough to help you with din din but if not be sure to set another place or stuff me in a corner and just hand me a plate. I won't be any trouble, I'm thoroughly capable of filling it all by myself Just make sure it's not a little chair as my broad rear end might have a hard time teetering on it.

    girlscouts1- I will send you another F8, as it was mailed out to you on 8/27 and is obviously on vacation somewhere in the postal system.
    The only f8's I have not received are from Lv2sew2011, marcialee, daisey and 1000projects.
    I have mailed out all other grownup blocks, so let me know if you have not received one.

    Well Girlscouts, that depends on if you want square or rectangle. What is it for? How big is it now? Going on a full size bed or did you want it a lap quilt. If lap I would do the 6 x 4 if bed, 5 x 5. that is me.

    Jaba, since you are a Denver fan and I am a Steeler fan, good thing we did not meet up yesterday. I was so disappointed.

    Now as for the fair, I am happy to say that I took seven 1sts, and four 2nds. I was in tears when I saw one of my quilts hanging up when we walked in. I am thrilled. This fair is much larger than the Wheatland County fair and I did not anticipate getting as many first places as I did. No Best of Show or Best of Class, but I am happy just the same. My DH commented on the one that took Best of Show and snubbed his nose at it. It was pretty and if they felt it should win then so be it I told him. My RR took First and my daughter just had to brag immediately. Not going to bore you with a bunch of photos of them. They are in the UFO Thread, churn dash, rr, an embroidery quilt, machine embroidered wall hanging, a rwb dq, hot pads, a teddy bear out of daughter's baby blanket took second, my quilted coat 2nd, a Christmas vest I made, Tree of Life quilt, and the Stars around the Garden quilt. The stars quilt had competition of the same quilt and they hung them beside one another. They were the same but yet different because i changed out colors on the blocks and assembled and quilted different. They even hung mine next to another hand embroidery quilt that was a BOM also. Wonder why they did that.

    My DH gave the boy permission to date our daughter. No, I am not real thrilled with it, but what ya going to do. I have not slept but a few hours for the last six nights now and I am about ready to crash. I did not get any sewing done, hurt my back, nasty sleep, and daughter is now thrilled. Boy, was that good or bad?

    When at fair we attended the grandstand concert where there was three bands. For $2.50 apiece, x 5 (12.50) I gave a ticket away, and the daughters and I went to the concert and just two of the bands was 3 hours worth of performances and there was one more to come and I had to go home it was already 8:00pm. They were wonderful performers. Apparently local bands, one rock the other boogie blues. What a treat for such a great rate. The girls and I got reprimanded twice. Yep, i got a warning I would have to leave because I wanted to send the music video to dh so he could hear a little bit and we stood up to clap and dance to the musci. Since when can't you stand at a concert. Someone will have to explain that to me. My daughters and me are now the Rebel Dancers. We danced in our seats and still made loud noise. So much that the singer signed our CD for us.

    Well, if all goes well this week, I may get to work on your blocks everyone. I got no sewing done but going to try and knock out a few of them each day.

    Have a great evening.
    Life is short, live it while you still can. QuilterMomma

    update

    The names on the previous thread from last night were sent in the mail today and the last 2 I had here went out to marcialee and daisy. I had to get marcialee and daisy out of here because I just kept drooling all over their fabric. It's beautiful ladies, I hope your quilts are amazing!! Posted if you want to peek and I still would like to know what your fabric line is. Got beautiful blocks today in the mail from anastasia and girlscouts1, thank you both so much.

    girlscouts1, I'm binding my Boom quilt now and will count my blocks and let you know what size it is. Will post later this evening with pic so you can see how I set them, window frame type and maybe that will help you decide.

    i rec'd a grown up today from moonrise. i haven't had a chance to really look at it as i had just picked up plants from the home depot and was all dirty. my patio is going to look great! a little dwarf fir tree, pansies and mums! they will bloom thru the fall, rest in the winter and then bloom again in the spring! i'm tempted to plant millions!! i still have roses, daisies and encore azaleas for collor. the rest is changing shades of green. the sugar maple should turn soon! i love fall!!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.
