    You do not need to put a little of you into it if you do not want to, I thought you already had by the wonderful colors you have chosen. I already have the backing which should be along the same theme as the top so will be very nice. I think you are going to like it jillnjo. I am excited to get sewing on it, but have to do some more finishing for the end of the month UFO challenges, then in February, you are on the top of the list along with Whigrose. They are out at my desk just waiting and saying work on me please.

    Hi everyone!
    I just posted over on the Vintage Machines forum about my new-to-me 1920 Singer 66-1 machine and a couple of photos. It's titled Meet Charlee, 1920... go take a peek.

    Um, yes, QuilterMomma, it DOES mean your quilt progress was put on hold for a few days. But, but, no really, I will, promise :-)

    best,
    d
    My best is the least I can do.

    Just checking in here (in case some of you aren't reading the Group page -- http://www.quiltingboard.com/groups/...1-2012-g8.html).

    I've received a couple of messages over the last week or so about participants having difficulty connecting with their partner.

    If anyone is having trouble with anything related to the swap, please give me a holler.

    The main body of the one I'm making is done. Next step: borders. How is everybody else doing?

    I have finished the 'bargello' part of mine, now to decide on a border to go with it. Have a couple in mind, need to work out whether I have enough fabric. Haven't even thought about a backing yet.

    Have finished the rows in mine, need to sew them together. Took a picture to post as a spoiler, but decided it gave too much away and didn't post. Have been working on a show challenge piece that is all hand quilting. That has stopped most all other sewing right now. It is about 3/4 done. Have to be home for a contractor today, so will get some of that done.

    I started my very first Sunbonnet Sue last night. Going to have fun using up my stash for this. And I just hope that won't be too obvious between my first SBS square and my last how much I improved my applique skills.

    Sues are a lot of fun! I'm sure they'll be great.

    Me and my partner are connected and I have it cut out and started peicing together. Still a ways to go. Then to find someone to quilt it for me...never done this part before, being new to quilting and all. Just hope my partner likes it when its done.

    We are all hoping our partners like our efforts. If my partner doesn't like the one I'm making, I'd be thrilled to keep it. You know that means she's going to love it too..... I should probably plan one for me too!

    Still working on the Dresden plates for my partners quilt.....I've been a little slow....Found out last week that I've got a few more ruptured disks in my neck....I'll be having another surgery on March 1st. It should be a crime to fall apart at 45 .

    Don't worry Carolyn, I WILL have your quilt finished BEFORE the mailing date Beckie

    Beckie, I am sorry you are dealing with some neck problems and take care until you are like new!!

    I am needing to purchase a little fabric for the border on my backing and then I'm ready to sandwich the quilt and start FMQing.

    Hi FF, I have a ways to go on my partners quilt too. The one your making is gorgeous and if she doesn't like it you can send it to me and I will make you one too. But we both know that's not going to be the case. Nice try huh??
