    Once again I need opinions! This is the "Grateful Dead" quilt so far for my neice. I am putting a 6" white border around it then more "colors" on the outside. She wants "SUNSHINE DAYDREAM" written on the quilt. Do you think it would look better up and down on the tie dyed center piece, one word on each side....on the top and bottom of the tye dyed center piece or on the top and bottom of the white border Im putting on it? Ill have to hand embrodery it because my machine doesnt do that fancy stuff! Decisions decisions....Wont she be shocked Im actually doing a "Grateful Dead" quilt for her! LOL

    How about if you put it around the skull, like sunshine on the left hand side facing out between the skull outline and the black outside circle, then daydreams on the other side. I think it would make it appear as though that was what the "skull" was thinking. Neat looking, my harley riding fanatic son would love it!!

    Ok, not completed yet, but wanted to show you what I am experimenting with. Poor Fraew, she may not like it and I can always make her a nine patch easily if she wants and I keep this.

    I realized one thing, don't sew it together late at night, or to early in the morning, you can get mixed up pretty easily. I think there is some other fabrics that I can make this block work for. I would love to perfect it and make a scrap quilt with this block. Lord knows I have lots of scraps that would work.

    That is a STUNNING block!!! No way at this point (with little fingers) would I take on such a delicate project. Fraew...if you don't want it, I would be happy to take that "ugly" thing off your hands, if it is too much for you to stand. QMomma, you are doing a fantastic job.

    Grateful Dead quilt...I like the idea of it inside the circle around the skull, however if that won't work, I'd do the sides in the colored area. Looks amazing and you got that together QUICK!!!

    TheMamaHauser -- CONGRATS!!! Happy dance, happy dance. I am doing a happy dance for you!!! (Don't ask Elisabrat to do that for you, she'll end up shuffling instead of dancing and we don't want her to fall, she is WAY too precious for that) I know you will be happy to have that part behind you!

    Jaba...thats a really neat idea!! I found some inch tall BRIGHT Alphabet buttons and was thinking I might be able to sew them in the skull....but not sure they would show up too well...I also bought some stencils but they will be too big to fit into the skull...Ill come up with something but I LOVE the idea you had. Thanks!!

    Hi Diamond Divas! I have to get caught up this weekend with my thank yous, as I thought a few days in ICU would be a lark this week. Home just in time for Hurricane Sandy, though. So please be patient with me. Elizabrat, I will be happy to contribute to your project. Mosher92, your block from me was sent out 9/7. Can you check again, I will gladly make another for you. Thank you Pink Lotus, Yosametisa, Nexxus21 for your beautiful blocks. I know I am missing someone, will check my lists tomorrow. Now to sleep in my own bed...
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    Well, I'm embarrased to admit how long it took me to take pics, figure out how to upload on computer and then try and retry and retry again to upload into an album on the board! Then I had to figure out how to resize the pics so it will upload. I am wore out!!! I'm going to go get something to eat and rest my eyes and then get to making some blocks. I now have 2 albums, one received and one sent.

    moonrise, the first one I made is a tad too small so I made a second but will send both cause I think you can the short one work.

    oh there are so many beautiful blocks being posted surely no one will mind if I say blatently.. Fraew thank you for making a quilt for me out of your beautiful blocks. I am sooo excited and it is very generous of you to do something like that for me. Wow I first thought, honesty that I was not going to like black/white or black/white quilts but as I have made several blocks now and seen all that everyone is coming up with they seriously grew on me. I can see why now and that is a cool thing. Learning something new each and every day here in quilters heaven.

    I can't wait til mine are all in so I can whip them together. I am one happy camper. oh Twinrivers you stayed in icu because you like the popcicles and jello you cant fool me. I am so sorry you were sick and pray that your on the mend now. Stop that that is my room and I will not share. So stay well.

    The tablerunners look like a great group are already signing up. That will be a challenging fun project I think. I am addicted to these swaps not sure if that is good or bad but I really like it and think I am chosing not to quit at this time. whoa is me (grin). In too deep never coming out of this one I am afraid (double grin)

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

    I agree Elisabrat.....I am addicted to the swaps. I realize that this swap is not ending until Jan. 1 but I am still getting nervous about my blocks. LOL. I sent out 20 of my Kabukha dolls and only have half back. It is going to be so adorable when It is done as it is working up to look great now. The other material I sent out was to add to some of the quilts that I have that I am working on. LOL. UFO's are piling up. Well back to finishing up NOV. DQ. Yep I am a little early but I need it done before flying down under. I will be a lurker all of the month of NOV.
    But any of you can join me........the coffee is superb there and the yummies are great. We can meet for morning tea or afternoon tea. I love saying that.

    OH I forgot to mention. I am reallly loving all the black and white, black, white and red, blue and white, black and turquoise ones. Maybe I will have to do a two color quilt or three next time. They are all turning out beautiful. Maybe you all could send them to me? Thank you in advance.

    How about a pic of that beautiful quilt "brat", we need to see Fraew's handiwork. How nice of her to do that for you. Don't let her know, but I've always thought she was a keeper for sure. You're one of my favs Fraew, you are truly one of the kindest, big hearted people I have had the pleasure of getting to know, only through the board, but that's plenty for me to know what you are like in person.

    Jaba you are soooooo sweet, but Brat's pulling your leg! We have been teasing each other about stealing the other's beautiful quilt blocks...so she decided (on her own) that I would just make one for her and she wouldn't have to steal.

    Still hope I'm a keeper though.
