    I like this one, but with something else other than the cats... (I'm a dog person, myself...)

    I really like that one too then I had to really look WHAT CATS? lol finally I saw them. Ah these old eyes.. the upside I don't see wrinkles very well either even with the reader glasses on. You all look so very young to me!

    I have the fabrics but not the pattern. I am not so much into applique love the look but would love to learn needle turn. For now I will just ..create I guess. I was thinking something in an egg shape center then crazy quilting around it til its square.. but only easter fabrics.. or perhaps a faberge type egg I know applique but wouldnt that be oh so pretty? my bunnies are very cute.. perhaps peaking over a fence? then of course something traditional say four blocks reverse colors in each one..

    That pattern for the spring flowers is pretty, and the other ideas sound very interesting. I am waiting to see other fabric I might get for Christmas, because my daughter in law was asking things I like. Guess what I said????

    Junebillie one can never go wrong with fabric .. I will hope she took any hints you tossed out. fabric fabric fabric Junebillie what are you gearing for colorwise? mine are between pastel and medium tones so far. Not sure if I want to add a bit of bold splash to it such as turquoise or bright pink.. the grass is a true green so that is as deep as I think i want to go.. sure hope it will make someone smile. I love the colors and fabrics.

    QM that is mine isn't it????? It is so pretty.

    Elisabrat, your color thoughts sound great, and I don't know yet until I see after Christmas, lol.

    Rhonda, I have planned for awhile now to use at least one of yours. I can't wait. I am still searching for my little measuring thingy.

    We really have a list going. That is great!

    That little quilt would look GREAT on my sewing room wall. I think you could even send it early if you like! Very pretty with all your vintage fabrics.

    I still have a tiny bit of other stuff to finish before I can get on this. here is a question: would you rather prefer a small quilt with say four or six 'quilty blocks' or would you prefer say something like the flower quilt that was posted earlier with say an applique? what do you like to do? I have more fun I think with quilting blocks than applique because I am NOT good with applique. One day I want to learn to needle turn but not on your project.. quite yet!

    Needle turn is pretty, but I am like you not real good at it. I enjoy the fusible applique or the machine applique. I have gotten even to where I do the fusible then stitch it down with the longarm so i do not have to work so hard on ether and it looks real good because on the backside of the quilt it shows off all the applique pieces and then I can really quilt on te applique and no one is the wiser. Yep, killing two birds with one stone. Important note on that, must be sure to use a quality fusible. Also, doing it Whigrose's way of donut hole (cuttng out the centers before putting on fabric) really makes the appliques soft and they look so close to needle turn. Whigrose's work is so pretty.

    I did see that cut the center part out in a maybe fons and porter magazine in the last few months. I buy steam a seam? usually in the packages from Jo anns. Thanks for the post Quiltermomma I thought maybe I was the only one who had trouble with it.

    I wanted to mention if your interested check out the boom group Ruby there is a post one of the last ones of a block someone did using the fractured method. 169 pieces for one block. And it is terrific. I was just so amazed Iwanted to share that. go peak honest its a good thing!

    Question are we to post our pictures of finished items before they are received or are we to post tiny corners of what we are doing instead? like teases/ curiosity and all. what say you everyone? and did anyone go check out that fractured quilt in the boom yet? I am still amazed.

    I explored that fractured quilt .... if only I could do that! It looks difficult ..... for someone with more experience than me. I'm still working on my design ... teaser pictures to follow.

    WOW you started it? I pulled fabric. That wore me out so I am taking a break. uh like a one more week break as I have to finish a quilt I started. Mystery train, finished the back piecing today as I had not enough fabric to do the whole thing and now to pin it and machine quilt it. I have a brother csi6000 so its not a big machine. One row at a time. and smoooshing it into that small window is no easy task. I think gee I ironed this thing together before I got to the quilting only to smooooooooosh it into 1/10 the size it was ..was there thinking involved here? no choice. I dream of your long arm quilt machines. ok I only sorta do. I fantasize about sitting in a chair with a cup of hot tea watching you use that long arm machine on my quilt. I love making tops. I hate quilting. (horrid thing to admit)

    Pictures of your progress or teases or the whole quilt are great! However you want to do it is fine. We love pictures of any kind!!

    The designing is my first love and I get through the piecing to see the end result. But I don't much care for the quilting part! I can't do anything but STID so far. I did try a little bit of wide easy fmq on a couple of totes I did for my dgs. I have a lot to learn before I can say I can fmq LOL

    Rhonda, you are so talented that I would have thought you did fantastic quilting. I like your many designs although many are more than I can achieve at this point. I appreciate your sharing your designs.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    LOL if you look behind the pretty design you'll see I cheat! LOL The steps to make them are not complicated and any beginner can make them. It's just a matter of knowing the steps.

    The Boston Block - sew two pieces of fabric together. Trim one edge sew on a third piece to the bottom. Cut out hte center with a template and tada!! You have a Boston Block. Make as many you need in the colors you need and sew 6 rows of 6 blocks per row and you have a quilt block!!

    I have several shortcut blocks that are not hard todo just have a couple more steps or so.
    I also have a couple of other ways to cut this that doesn't have as much leftover fabric. I reuse any leftovers when I use this method so no waste.
