    Rhonda, I am ready to mail on Monday. I like to make something special for my partner based on their needs/interests. One time, what I had made in advance wasn't really relevant to the person's life so I made something else quick. Anyway, this can postpone shipping a bit. I don't know if personalizing gifts is slowing shipping down in any other cases (I did have something already made), but I thought I'd mention it. Maybe I just need to get more generic.

    More of my scrappy Sulky BOM

    I've got March's block pieced. I think I' m not going to do the hand embroidery until I have the blocks together. Anybody think that is not a wise decision? Never done anything like this before so I'm not sure.

    If it is going to be very big you might regret that because you'll have to bunch up or wrinkle the rest in order to embroider the blocks in the middle. On the other hand, if your embroidery is going to cross block seams you'd have to wait until those seems are together. That's my $.02 worth.

    Thanks Foxflower, maybe as I put the blocks together and do it in sections? I'm worried about distorting the blocks.

    These will all be going to our local hospital for Hospice. I would like to put a label on them but not with my name----any suggestions on what I can put on the label ?

    WOW !! I forgot to resize and they uploaded !!!!!!!!WooHoo !!!
    What is the finished size of the colored squares in the film at five quilt?

    That would certainly make it more managable. Are you planning to embroider in a hoop? If so, keep in mind that your hoop may close over the top of another block's applique and embroidery when they are sewn together in advance.

    I WON!!!! Quilting must be good for me. Was downstairs early this morning to cut some scraps for pincushions that I am making and the radio had a contest to win tickets for a concert. I was lucky #9 so we will be going to see Pam Tillis and Lori Morgan on Saturday night. My DH isn't really a country kind of guy, but he said he would go. I'm so excited!!!!!
