    Good day at the mailbox today ...

    2 F8's received
    Phannie1
    SavannahRandon

    And a grown up block from TravelingGramma! I love how she used 4 different browns from the fabric with just a hint of red. Thanks Gramma!! I stretched one corner too much when I taped it to the wall - it's square

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Made me a practice block from my ladybugs...not saying this is what y'all will get but wanted to try it out in case I did want to use it...I've got a couple f8's that would work really good for this.

    update

    Working on the baby quilt for customer so I didn't make any blocks today but received a F8 from savannarandons and received 1 back from the diamond group. I did fabric in that one of fruits and vege's because I am making placemats and table runner for my kitchen and probably daughter in laws. Have got to show this block, hubby and I both laughed....he asked what's for dinner and I kept thinking of a 1 "pot" dish. You'll see why. It's from twinriverfarms.Name:  DSCF0785.JPG

    I love tumbling blocks and garlic and yippeee I get a block. So I have 3 blocks in envelopes ready to go but I gotta wait for more money for postage. Tee hee. By the time I get some I should have a few more blocks to send with them. And hopefully have this baby quilt on the frame. I had to clean my sewing room explosion because I couldn't think anymore to make more blocks. but now I have ideas for the rest. Some are going to be applique.. ooo another new thing for me those might take me 4 months hahahha.. we'll see. Have to get more ink. Printer won't print in just black cause my magenta is empty... arghhh

    Dad is always amazed at the variety of blocks. Even with the same pattern he likes how different fabric switches it all up. He is really all better after his stroke in May but we told him he doesn't have to go back to his house if he doesn't want to...he seems to like being here and "helping me" and spoiling our cats. When the f8's came in and I was shopping my stash he was right in there with me offering his suggestions.

    That's nice. I really enjoy hearing about men in this craft. It makes me happy inside.

    moonwork, that block is a cube in a corner right? I lost that pattern any way you might have a spare? I love that it. I still have lady bugs left over so when I finish the rest of yours I will make another one.. something a bit more challenging.

    see you later gaters if the internet is still here. busy weekend with campers so they might use it up til midnite then I sneak in and get a few in before its gone again .. I had no clue the internet had bits and bites and you can buy x amount of them thought it was like open ended. But we use our bits and bites up here on busy times and well that leaves me without .. you guys! I will pray those downloading movie guys are staying home but it seems everyone and their brother/mother/cousin/neighbor came up with them last night. Big old parade of ugly cars coming into my park lol.. ok its their park but they shouldnt all come here at one time. Big dance tonight etc.. oh joy then the fun really begins. Security calls/door knocking all hours of the night. phone, get the gate (rather not go away) then the mass exodus on Monday which oh darn see you next season! phew. tomorrow is kids festival/craft faire kids dance... one big happy time. Happy campers everyone! I like the kids ramble here, they remind me of being young too, they laugh they scream with joy, this is all good memories for them. Too bad they have to bring the grown ups with them each time lol

    Elisabrat...It's from Marci Bakers's "It's not your Grandmothers Tumbling Block" book. She has a video on youtube also that shows how to do it using strips rather than "y" seams. Much easier that way but still a challenge.

    Hello all
    I am sorry I am quiet. My IH is acting up since I fell and my eyes are leaking fluid now . Anyways enough of that.
    I have to say I love all the blocks so far and Lisa I have always loved the three d type blocks, they give such depth to a quilt.
    Linda-do you own a campground? Hubby and I would love to own/operate one someday in the Catskills.
    Travelinggramma your note said Americana which to me is burgundy, navy and cream but you wrote red white & blue. Which colors do you prefer to have?
    I have not mailed any completed blocks home yet as I have been home taking some down time. I now have completed blocks for Jacquie, savannahrandsons & Charlotte to add to the going home pile. I hope you all like your blocks as much as I liked working on them.
    Ctmhjenn is in the swap she just has not decided on a fabric yet. Bear with her there is plenty of time .
    Hugs
    April

    I'm slowing down.. hehe.. rarg... Had to stop and square up my baby quilt and get it ready for my mom to quilt for me. She's speedy and baby is about to pop out soon so have to get it done. Next one a friend is offering to long arm for me in repayment for nice things I've done for her.. So maybe the 3rd one I'll actually have to figure out how to quilt myself haha. I did finish Moonwork's last night though. I received fabric yesterday from Phannie1 and Savannahrandons, gotta figure out what in the heck to do with those.

    I lost my letter from Immemother about what she wanted done with her block. I think the kitten stole it. She likes to eat paper. *scowl* I remember reading that SOMEONE had planned to do their quilt On-Point, but can't remember who that was? Anyone? I msg'ed Imme to see if she could tell me again what she wanted with her fabric

    April - cream or white - I have received both. I no doubt will use them to make lap quilts for the VA. I then will put white on one, and cream on the other!

    Was thinking today quiltermomma, the way the post office has been, when your daughter finishes that quilt for the Cody, Wy show, you should really just deliver it to make sure it gets here.
    Thank you so much ladies, I love these blocksName:  DSCF0787.JPG

    I was thinking the exact same thing, and thinking I'm going to fall short of the same goal. I've been staring at Jaba's fabric all day trying to pick a block that will show off the large print.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
