    I am so honored that you would want to make a quilt for me. I didn't expect anyone to make more than one. I would love to swap with you. I am so excited to get to get to know you.

    If someone is making Tam...Moo a quilt using reproductions, I have a small piece of reproduction turquoise flower print I'm done with and could pass on.

    Wow, I love this group.
    Okay, looks like QuilterMomma is going for the world record-- and doing so supports her getting another UFO done.
    Tam...Moo, you have a new partner. AND QuilterMomma: see if the fabric FoxFlower is offering is something you could use, if you need any more fabric.

    Wow. I LOVE YOU ALL! ;-)

    Okay Quiltermomma and Tam...Moo. Here is a pic of the fabric I have. It is 18.5 x 20.5. I thought you both might like to see it. Quiltermomma, I'll mail it to you IF you want to use it. If not, that's fine, I'll just retain it in my stash.

    Fox flower that is so kind of you...I do love the fabric but I am so happy just to leave all the decisions to quilter momma since she is doing all of the work and I know I will love whatever she creates. I am still so appreciative and impressed with her generosity.

    I am just about to sandwich my quilt ready for quilting and gosh am I glad the top is done, I have never 'unpicked' so much in all my years of quilting but apart from a tinsy winsy mistake it looks pretty good. Let's hope I can quilt it good enough to make Vanogay love it to bits

    Omg. Vanogay is going to be a lucky girl. I just perused lynnie's quilts on webshots (see her signature for the link) and they are stunning! Lynnie, you are prolific!!!!

    Quilted, binded and packed ...
    I'll be in the US in a few days now and decided to mail it to my partner - Kristin , Rhode Island - from there; easier and faster. Up to now its totally a surprise to her - unless she comes to check what is going on here because I'm attaching a pic of it so that all of you know what I came up with :
    Jinny Beyer's "Outback" 60x60 pattern - tried to use just Brazilian fabrics as I could not find a good "olive hue",
    used JB's fabric. Also the blue central block fabrics are also not brazilian. I asked for a light quilting to a friend who also used some blue shimmery thread. I like how it ended up.

    Thank you jillaine. The quilt pictures on webshots are only half of my quilts, I had been very lazy and haven't updated the webshots page for ages. Most of my latest ones are in albums on here but there are quite a lot (in between) that I really need to take photos of and add to my albums - before I sell them or give them away

    Ligia, that is gorgeous! The quilting does look great too. I love that shimmery thread.

    That is awesome ligia, I love the colors in that quilt. JB fabrics are always stunning in a quilt. I just finished a Bargello with her fabrics in it, will post photos tomorrow on the UFO challenge page. I am about to hit my 10 for the month. Just have to get those bindings done and we know how I adore that part, ugh. (scrinched up face at bindings). I am on a quest now to get the 30s quilts done this month so I can send them off by May. Now to get my swap blocks done this week so I am able to make more quilts as I finish up the old. God is good.

    Logia,
    Your quilt is fabulous! Love the contrast and the way the colors play together. Your partner will be very happy to receive such a beautiful piece.

    Best,

    My best is the least I can do.

    Worked a lot on my partner's quilt this weekend. I was one of those in the 5-10% "piece of pie" up there and getting a bit anxious that I might not complete it on time.

    I'm alternating 10" sunbonnet sue blocks (on point) with 10" pieced blocks. I have eight more pieced blocks to go, then have to figure out and make the border.

    So I think I can safely say I've moved into the 25% "piece of pie" now.

    I'm heading home today (been gone 3 weeks without my sewing machine
    ). I can't wait to get back to my projects! and finally get going on my partner's swap quilt---getting a late start as I thought my partner had dropped out--but YEAH she didn't. I was also finishing some UFO's (you can see 3 completed UFO's on my blog!).
    I have the fabrics picked out and I've narrowed down the pattern to a couple-so I will decide on the pattern in the new few days (in between cleaning and unpacking the motorhome, tidying the house for a meeting Tuesday night and doing the endless laundry from our trip!!) and then I will get to the cutting and sewing.

    Hello fellow quilters. I had three heart attacks, and double bypass surgery, and I lived to tell about!!!!!! Praise be to the Lord!!! They are letting me go home tomorrow and while I'm looking forward to that very much, I am feeling more than a little vulnerable to be over 4 hours from the cardiac team. My many thanks to each of you who sent prayers up on my behalf. May the good Lord bless you.

    Yes indeed Rose, Praise be to the Lord Almighty. So glad you are getting to come home. You take care of yourself. Hope someone will be with you until you are ready to be up and moving about.

    Good news! I have found some backing fabric for the 30s quilts I am working on for my two other partners. It is so adorable. I just love it so that should be good. It is also a 30s fabric. It was on sale at the LQS and with my discount, was able to save quite a bit. So glad I teach as well.

    Hey Jillnjo, my husband still keeps taking my quilt at night. Oh yeah, it is in his sleep of course. I does fit over the top of my bed which makes it even more special. I get to look at it everyday.

    Well, it is lunch time here and I better get to making my class samples for my summer classes. Happy quilting till we visit next time.

    QuilterMomma! I'm glad your quilt is keeping you warm, at least your hubby warm! I have mine draped over an antique bench in my front room..

    That is what you said you were going to do with it. This way you get to look at it everyday and just enjoy the freshness of the fabrics. The rose fabric will let your mind just remember how awesome a fresh rose smells. See you can smell the flowers everyday. Thanks for the kudos girl. Now I better get my hinie in gear and get those other two completed. At least they are started and on the road to being done. Next week will be finishing all the cutting for the appliques. I am learning on the log cabin that it is better to cut your length then sew instead of doing it where you just sew your block onto the strip. The cutting seems to keep my block straighter and more square. What are you thoughts? You did such a nice job on ny log cabin blocks, what is your preference?

    I have the quilt top pieced and ready to put together. Will take it to the LQS and quilt it using the LA for the first time. I am so excited. Hope to have it all done and in the mail by the first part of May.

    Quilter, well, I have never cut my strips to size before sewing. I've always used long strips of cut 2" wide scraps and just pick one up as I go. It hasn't been a problem, I just carefully cut the end of the strip off as it lays right sides together, cutting along the end of the previous strip(after they are sewn together), then I always square up my block-and it's done!

    Quilt top done; backing selected and cut (not yet pieced). A bit more "augmenting" to do to the sunbonnet sues. Hope to get to the FMQ this weekend (on my vintage 1976 "Signature" from Montgomery Wards).

    Ligia, I am Kristin's aunt and called her and told her not to look. But I know she will love it . I told her it is gorgeous!!!!
    The one she is making you is very very pretty. My partner wuv2quilt has medical issues right now. But I have been working on her Baltimore Albumn quilt to give her even though she might not finish mine in time. I just love all my quilting sisters here on this board.
