    Understandable, Yvonne.

    Yes, Sherry, I'll let you know when it arrives. I'm very sorry about your quilt tops. I would be happy to do another round for you. I have plenty of strong opinions on this issue and will send them the right direction. Again, so sorry for both of you.

    It's a girl! On the 16th my daughter had her first child - a very very long labor - but being able to help her was wonderful. Have been busy since they have been home helping out and letting them sleep and making dinner!
    My mom will be here for a week so tomorrow I get to clean up all my sewing projects and machine - Amazing how far those fabric squares can travel all over our trailer!
    Yvonne - I so understand. I am very upset that the work you all did is sitting at someones house that it shouldn't be.
    But I will be ready to do any round if you change your mind.
    When mom leaves and I get time I will finish up on my top and post it here.
    blessings to you all

    Jane, will you post a picture after it's quilted? Would love to see it. You, too, Janet although I know it'll be a while because you've got your hands full now!

    I received this pm today and wanted to share this with anyone that is following our thread.
    " Annemixon was in the Boom 10 swap in 2 groups and as far as I know she accepted everyone's F8's and never sent back a finished block. I never received mine and she never responded to my pm. I think the sign up for this overlapped the end of the Boom 10 swap so no one new how unreliable she is. I should hope that now she will not be allowed to join any other swaps.. She netted quite a bit of nice material from everyone and if someone doesn't think they are going to fulfill an obligation in one swap I don't understand why you would join another!"

    I would hope that others will leave her negative feedback so she can't do this again.

    Stunning Quilts ladies, Ssnare it was so nice talking to you Saturday.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    Where is everybody and what are you all up to? Have been crocheting a lot lately. I find it fun and relaxing. I prefer thread crochet. It absolutely amazes me how you can take a simple teeny string and turn it into beautiful edgings, coasters, etc.

    we just got back from an overnight trip to NYC. Was busy - got to see two museums, eating, spent time with a niece, eating, people watching, eating, walking. I am now sitting here looking at dolphins. Realized that what I had put aside to use is not the colors that was wanted. took out all my stash (and in an RV they are really stashed) and starting to play.
    ssnare - do you want a square or rectangle? I could add an extra wide border on top and bottom if you want. Let me know.
    And Wonnie - I have so many pieces of material that will work with yours it will be a difficult decision to make!

    Just so happy to be able to work on both of yours

    Janet, what colors were you going to use for my top? I think I would like rectangle.

    The pattern I had with whales was more purple and orange. Didn't match. Plan on putting a narrow aqua and narrow sand to start imitating what you had done. then I will add a larger border having the top and bottom wider than sides. I have lotsa blues to work with.
    I think I can,,,,I think I can!!

    And Jane - patience!! It will take me some time

    Great to hear from everyone ! Can't believe it's going down to 38 degrees tonight! Not complaining...love summer but cool at night is just fine with me. Been trying to get a few tomato plants in the ground but still too chilly. Will be in 60's tomorrow. Over to my granddaughter's early in the morning to help her decorate cupcakes for her mother for a Habitat event in the evening.

    I had so much fun today!! I really enjoyed working on this top.
    Since I am new the area it is not always easy to find stores. The other day I went, with the written directions from website, to find the Joanns for just one more fabric to go with this. Alas the directions ended up taking me to Walmart and Michaels. UGH! Forgot my phone so couldn't even go online to find out where the quilt store or joanns was located. So I did go into Michaels and found two FQ of this cute blue fishy material. I added some waves to the bottom and top to make it rectangle. Then I thought of portholes/ aquarium viewing windows and made them around the edges. Pictures aren't so good as it has gotten windy, but you get the idea
    Sure hope you like it

    Got it today Janet. The quilts are even prettier when you see them in person. Love both your and Jane's borders. I envy your ability to do curves Janet. Hope I can find the right shades of blue and gold.

    Yvonne - I sure hope you like what I did, I had the imput of all the family members! I added another 6.5 " around. My corners got better so you will easily tell which one was the first vs the last!
    Will go out in mail tomorrow, I hope!
