    So sorry you and your DH are going through this. I have a handicapped DH and he has ups and downs with some serious health issues. So I can relate. I'll add you and your DH to my prayers!

    If you sign up and I know the situation I can make arrangements to substitute for you if you can't get it done. So if you want to sign up feel free to and then if you do have a hitch and can't follow through just let me know as soon as you can. No problem!

    maryliztod- your mug rug question stirred me to action. i started a thread in pictures, "some fun mug rugs", if you would like to see some differnt types of mug rugs. they were lots of fun to make and definitely out of the box!

    Mary it can be any size you want. I think an average would be about 3' x3' but it can be anything between a mugrug -6" x 8" to a lapsize or crib size quilt-4' x 5'

    I have had so many question sizes that I tried not to limit this too much. So the numbers are not an exact requirement

    I would love to do this and I would love to swap internationally (Ireland). I already have a 4 block piece started. So, this would fit perfectly for this swap. So sign me up.

    Thanks so much for your kind regards!! We are super excited, and I have to say I feel as if I am running around in circles!! I haven't started on my wall hanging yet, I just can't seem to quilt volunteering to do more wedding things..LOL.. But I seem to work best under pressure anyways...
    Take care,

    I will keep you and your spouses in my prayers, too...My dh has MS and Addison's disease, my Mom lives with us and she is a lung cancer survivor, and I have Lupus...I try and not be to whiney about it all, but I am only human and have my moments...then I tell myself that I am blessed to have people who love me, and I have wonderful people to love...and it could be worse, and yes, I do a lot of praying...which works for me...
    Take care all,

    Kif, have you heard of the book "Keep your mouth shut and wear beige" bt Kathleen Gilles Seidel. It is about the mother of the groom and it is a real funny book. My wonderful quilting buddy and total best friend gave it to me.

    My son is also getting married this year, maybe October but date not set yet! Don't they know that I have to know how much time I have to do Stuff! LOL, I am going to make them a double wedding ring quilt, and that alone will take me a really long time! I told my DIL to be she might see it by their golden Anniversary if she is lucky!

    I also opened my big mouth and said I would make her dress! But I really don't mind as she is such a sweetie and will not turn into a Bridezilla.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Am I suppose to use 4 different blocks in the wall hanging or can they all be the same?

    I think you can make it however you want to. An example might be the 4 different seasons or a flower where each block is the same, such as a petal of the flower, but together, they make the whole flower.

    You can do what ever you like with the quilt blocks. They don't even have to be the same size or same anything. The only real requirement is that you use 4 quilt blocks but they can be any style any size anything you want to use. You can add more quilt blocks if you like and you can add any kind of sashing or embellishments or anything you can think of to make it more creative. It's all up to you.

    Hi Marybeth,
    I haven't heard of that particular book, but had heard of the saying...as a matter of fact I told ds and dil to be when I was looking for my dress to wear that I had heard the mother of the groom is supposed to wear beige and be quiet...lol...my ds bless his "darling" heart replied, "Well at least you can do one of those mom.". Meaning I can't be quiet!! I replied, "Well, I don't look good in beige!"...We all had a big laugh!! I hear ya on getting everything done...I keep "volunteering" to do things, too...but like you, I know they both appreciate everything, and we are so thrilled about the wedding and all! I am finishing a version of this quilt for them..I am using beiges, browns, and blacks as the colors, and dil to be loves stars, so I am using star fabrics, too...I hope to post a pic when I have it finished, here is the link:

    Take care,

    I am going to go buy my fabric today for my wall hanging. I got me a part-time job as a sewer to make money to fund my quilting habit. All the money that I make will be used to buy fabric and so forth.

    Congrats Mary on your part time job! Post pictures of your fabric if you can! I haven't decided on mine yet.

    i know what i'm going to do! and for once this won't be an original design, and i will give full credit to the designer.
    i had a horrific revelation! my computer went down , and i made a flimsy and finished a jacket and did the dishes. who knew you could do all that in a day?? lololol. let's just hope and pray it doesn't happen again!! (shudder and quake)

    ohonda-- are we posting pics, or keeping things mysterious? is the finished product going to be a surprise saved for the 31st of october?
