    Anastasia sweetpea you are young but not NEW GRAND BABY YOUNG so well, so long been good to know you funny how it can take a top priority. That said they do take nine months to come so why do we take so long making those blankets? I already talked to my kids and said I was making a few pastel, a few bright ones when their finally ready to have children they can simply shop grandma's closet for new baby gear. Same with wedding stuff. I want to make a civil war fabric quilt for my son when he gets married, my daughter another romantic patriotic quilt for when she gets married and well praying the oldest doesnt get married again so guess I should make one so it ensures he doesnt.. you know darned well if I dont make it I will need it. murphys law and all that. so hurry up boom swap 9 lol please use civil war fabric lol or if its like beach houses well I can do those in civil war too. ..or if its like Christmas well interesting civil war trees! (no need for ornaments on those trees).. ok hurry up.. oh heck better finish this one first. night ya all. company is making me one pooped out camper. Still sewing I dont care come visit me while I iron this or cut that.

    He'd love to come and if he was limber enough to go into an envelope he probably would try it.

    Glad you liked the block when you peeked.

    So... I've been thinking.. all the leftover fabrics I got from everyone's fat8ths and my own that I sent out, I'm going to pair with black and make like a stained glass quilt.. course this is in theory... I will probably lose all my scraps in my bins o' scraps, forget what was used, etc and use my glorious black on other things.. but.. it's in there in my brain.. so maybe.

    Just put them in their own little baggie for safe keeping. Go get 'em now before you forget what you've been sewing on, I just say that 'cause that's what would happen to me. Mine are still in the basket in the envelopes they came in so are all separate and I think I have all the last boom in a baggies with name on each one. That sounds stupid, what the h--- am I saving them like that for? It's easy 'cause that's the way they were, don't want to make it to difficult on myself you know. Now if I knew how to do stained glass, I'd have a pretty good start. Where's a tute Anastasia??

    Hehe pretty vibrant blocks you got there April. Love the card trick. That's a good idea Jaba. I have no idea how I plan to do the stained glass. Just a small black strip between everything and I will have to play around with arrangement because they will be different sizes. I will have to find my smallest scrap and determine what divisible number will work and then try to cut the others within that guideline. I am still deciding if I want to do a stained glass with just the strips, or if I want to do like a shadowbox type quilt with a black background and grey shadow or something. what i'll probably do is lay my pieces on top of the black fabric and decide if they need a little somethin somethin else to make them pop and if so then probably do the shadowbox instead.

    I love those quilt inspectors. I have got my little American Idol guy back. He likes to sit in his own chair and watch Simon with me. He seems to know it's the same guy on Factor as he used to watch with me. I'll try to get a picture of him doing that. Anyway, I'm here to update my rubies list. Today I mailed finished blocks to Buddy's Mom, Jacquie, nygal, Immemother and that's all for rubies.

    Anastasia, you're asking me to hard of a question. I don't know, I just cut out a kitty from the fabric, ironed some interfacing on the back, put it in the middle of the block, set my machine for a really close zigzag, and sewed arouund the edges. Whatever that's called that's what I did I can't even figure out the embroidery on my machine , but sure wish I could. I'd be doing that, well probably not kitties, I like them, I'm just allergic to them unless I take some drugs first

    Machine applique jaba haha and that works for the answer. I totally forget to say I got my pretty block from Moonwork but my phone is being ornary about emailing myself the pic at the moment so I can post later or you can peruse it on her forum post she's keeping. All this math homework.. I'm losing my mind and it's slowly being replaced by useless information.

    HELLO anybody home? I just got the internet back yippee lots of posts to catch up on. I seriously want that cat fabric and think that I can make a kitty block for the shelter without sending that lost fabric back.. shoot its not in the box.. darned it. You shoulda known not to send me the CAT one.. oh no you send me CAT fabric.. she who used to have a kitten rescue gets fabric with cats in a basket and is supposed to send it back? NOOOOOOOO!!! thats not fair!! ok. fine. be a brat get your silly fabric with adorable cats back. in a block. fine. sigh..

    Anastasia stained glass is oh so pretty to look at. IN a quilt however think even really good black fabric fades a bit in washing vs a wall hanging minimal washing an if its not in direct sun.. limited fading too. I think one of th easier ways to do stained glass would be to crazy it. color black color black.. and frame it with black and it could be stained glass. I have had a pattern before but its darned hard and well not for me. Also I just bought some fabric to use as stained glass windows lol already colored such with little 1/4 pinkie colored ovals surounded by black. Be great as a church window in a block. You are one whirlwind of ideas Erin. Wowsa.

    well its the witching hour.. see you tomorrow if I have the net again. maybe at midnite if I am lucky.

    Funny.. I've drafted like 3 blocks tonight and still have not settled on a block that I want to do for immemother. *sigh* I don't know why.. nothing is just quite speaking to me yet. Nothing saying PICK ME PICK ME.. bleh.. Picked fabrics out for CharlotteMarie's, and fixed my piece sizing for Savannah's. And got 2/3 of my math homework done and a paper written.. Haven't turned the tv on once today.. yay for accomplishments. My house looks like a disaster but eh.

    Anastasia I have a solution to the disaster problem. Don't look silly goose I wont look either. If no one really looks is it truly a disaster and what ever you do DONT SHOW JABA. she will not do well with that. OR get cleaning (oh so much fun) have a fabric party everyone brings fabric dumps it on your table and then takes turns picking out which ones they want.. and we have margaritas, have a pinata (filled with fat quarters) and then they go flying all over the room, women leaping on your furniture to get them, and chips doing airial numbers and the sweet sound of crunching in your carpet.. now that my sweet girl would be a small disaster. Especially since I cant climb on furniture anymore and would miss out on the best piece of fabric from your pinanta. So see? you have nothing to stress..

    I am stuck on a block for the other group. Pretty little almost calico but no instructions to use only whats in the fabric, not use the colors in the fabric and use say black or white only.. argh. and the kids are sleeping til probably eternity in the sewing room and I cant go get another piece envelope to work on. OH DEAR, now that is a problem. I guess I will be forced to go look at everyone elses albums and see what they made. oh dear such a hard job.. eye candy all of it. You should go to the diamonds albums Rubiets as there are so many wonderful blocks to see.. it will tease you into doing a big swap next time and no twiddling of thumbs waiting for this to end and another to start. And if that happens sign up to do TWO HUGE SWAPS. Next time someone will throw in a jar of salsa or tomatos as incentive for you to join (hint hinto).

    Hey now, I won't look if there's FQ's and margarita's, that's the best of 2 world's. By the end of the night be sure you show me where the nearest pillow is or just throw it on the floor and you'll probably find me in the same spot next morning..Works for me. If the tomatoes are coming from here I guess I better start canning them instead of freezing. The postal service would really come unglued with tomato juice all over everything and you'd have to wash my F8's before you could even sew on them, or I guess just dry em' out and each piece would be tye dyed. Now that's a novel idea?? Might have to try that.

    If anyone sends me anything, please note that my zip code is wrong. It should be 36567. When April said check the address, I did not notice it was wrong. It's amazing that I have still gotten everything as far as I know. That will teach me!
