    Squishie in the mail. On to August doll quilt.

    I have decided after looking at all the fabric choices and gorgeous completed blocks, that I will need to make at least 2 sets, and maybe 3. I definitely am not going very far since I broke my ankle in 3 places last week and am still recovering from surgery. Have to stay off the foot for 12 weeks; no walking, driving, or even being very comfortable for 3 months. Ugh!

    Hope I can drive my sewing machine with my left foot since that one is still working properly. Will have to get Islandwiz (aka Auntie) to drive me back to the quilt shop for a few more fabric choices. Promise to post the pictures once I remember where I stashed the fabric I already purchased and washed.

    Deb; I reread the instructions and you are saying that in each set, all 4 blocks of one pattern must be out of all the same fabrics? I have gobs of civil war pieces that would make 2 or 3 blocks, but probably not 4. I love to use up fabrics I have, but am willing to buy. Approx. how much fabric would you buy of the 2 colors needed in 4 blocks? Am getting ready to start on my blocks for this swap. Will decide how many sets as I go along!

    I prefer that all 4 blocks be the same.....but if you can get three, I guess that will be okay...as long as it is as close as to the other 3 as you can get them.

    Here are my Star of Virginia blocks. I should have the Shoofly blocks done in about 30 minutes... and then I'm taking a break before I start the others. They're still in time-out for another 2 weeks.

    One of the SoV blocks wasn't my brightest moment - not one but two TWO!! directional prints in that one. Geeze Louise. That added about 6 extra hours to the project, I swear.

    My three fabrics

    Here are the first 3 fabrics I purchased and began cutting out today. Decided to start with the hardest, the Double T block. Then if I decide on another set, then back to the quilt shop for me.

    I have tried to upload a picture of my fabric but the system keeps telling me the upload failed. I even cropped the picture a bit to make it smaller. Any suggestions?

    Kristin, if you hit reply, (as if you were going to reply), then "go advanced" and click on "manage attachments", you will get a list showing the maximum file sizes. Compare the allowed size for your file type to the size of your image file; it is likely still too big.

    I just joined and have never used CW prints or at least I didn't know I was using them. I will post a picture of fabric the beginning of the week. Should be fun.

    What fun would it be if all of your projects were DONE!!!!????? It keeps us mentally active to have multi-tasking projects......Marcielee just joined......they are NOT hard to do despite the grumblings about the Double T. But we do have a shortcut to making them that is posted on the thread. We all help each other....and you will just love the blocks you get back.

    Like most people, I love piecing blocks.
    I'll never get the UFO done, I'm so easily distracted, add me to the list, sending you a PM.

    Angry

    Ladies, I hit a huge speed bump last night, spent way too much time on a block....couldn't figure out what was wrong. Gee, it finally hit me that I had cut some squares 3-1/2 instead of 3-7/8. buggers. It was a miserable time. I know NOT to do this when I am tired...but......

    Deb, i have been there to. Guess we should quit when we get tired but we never learn do we. I'm just checking in. All I have to do are my double t's. i should finish them this week. It has been fun working with my civil war fabrics again. I might have to make one t block different,running low on the same fabric,but you can send that one back to me.
