    Ok Everyone I got the four other blocks done. I will send these off to Evelyn so that she has all five. Please don't attach the blocks together just make them and then I will mix and match them up when they get home. Hope everyone is having a great week.

    Melinda those are just great. Wish I had thought of it.

    I do want to suggest that we each pin our set of blocks together with a note containing our name so that you know which ones came from whom.

    Hi everone I did wash my fabric but if you dont attach my row to the next row you dont have to wash your fabric. For the last row that sounds good to me. Melinda I made a practice block and I did good. It looks like yours. I just love your blocks Glad I dont have to wash fabric. I never wash my fabric first. I have to go to La. My brother has cancer in his kindy also. Dr wants to take out his kindy but the Dr is not a cancer Dr. need to convince him to see a cancer Dr. Will be back Monday Have a nice weekend

    So sorry to hear about your brother, Evelyn. My prayers are with you and your family as you begin this difficult journey.

    Oh prayers to your brother and his family. Don't worry about us we will be here when you get back. Also I will send out the other four blocks to you and glad you were able to make a block with ease. It really isn't a hard pattern. Dragonfly Nana your right pin all your blocks together so I know who made what. Next week I will start on the star blocks. Should be fun

    Evelyn, sorry to hear about your brother!

    I haven't gotten them put together into a row yet, but I wanted to post the blocks I completed for your row!

    Sure - I draw the dragonfly on applique paper (I made myself some templates a while ago) then choose a light colored fabric scrap from the ones I used in the quilt to adhere it to.

    When the quilting is mostly done I attach the applique to the back in a corner where I won't be quilting by using a half ladder stitch on my machine. Some people call the stitch by another name but I can't remember what right now.

    Then I finish quilting, bind it, and then I write on it with a pigma pen and press the dragonfly to set the ink before I wash it.
    Hope that helps.

    Yes - please choose one fabric that you used in the row for me, iron a wing to the back side of that fabric and then sign the front. I will trim them up when the come back and attach them all to a body that I make.
    I guess since we only have four members I will be the fourth wing and the date will go in the body.
    Thanks for asking.

    Paula, I am going to put Evelyn's row in the mail probably on Tuesday (I don't think we have mail tomorrow for President's Day). I'll let you know for sure once it's out!

    Ladies, I just PMs Kelly with an idea about our last row. This is the NEW plan:

    Since we all still have the 1st row we could each make one extra block for it and send it loose from the other rows.

    That way the owner would get back 4 complete rows and 3 loose blocks. They can make two more to finish the row putting them in any order they want to finish out the quilt.

    It would also save on having to ship another time.

    Absolutely ship ahead. I have three of your blocks cut out and will hopefully sew them today and then finish up the other two.

    LOVE this idea....and we all haven't shipped off yet so it's the perfect time to make that decision.

    Glad you agree Melinda. Kelly thought it made sense too. Now we just have to wait until Evelyn checks in after she returns from seeing her brother, but I don't think she will have a problem with it.

    Ok, I have Evelyn's row (and her +1) ready to go. I know our mailing dates are all changed, so Paula if you want it, I can send it now. If you don't, I can wait. To be honest, I probably won't mail it until after the Feb 1 paycheck.
