    Hey there Lisa, just touching bases. I receive my rows and hopefully start them today. Hope you all are well and sewing away!

    OK I feel stupid asking but hopefully I will learn something here today. As I was looking at Kelly's block I realized I didn't quite understand the directions. I don't know if I can say this right but on the sheet that was sent with the rows it shows a dotted line. Is that implying a sew line or a cut line. I know last time I tried to do triangles or geese I worked with triangles and I had a hard time. The blogger block palooza is confusing me! Any suggestions from you ladies would be great. I just know there has to be an easy way! Help!

    I have to admit I did not follow the instructions. I looked at the blocks she had made and just made my own. I did the flying geese with a Quilt in the Day flying geese ruler. The HST I did by the draw a line through the center sew on each side, cut on the line and then square up.

    If you need more help, I'd say to PM Kelly. She probably knows how the instructions were written.

    I had to go look that up. On that sheet, when you see the dotted lines it indicates sew. I used paper foundations for the flying geese and then for the center square, I drew that exact line on the back of the fabric, sewed it, trimmed & pressed open. I used the same method as Lisa for the HST's. If you need a foundation for the flying geese, PM me your email address and I will send you something that is print-able.

    I finally got the right mix of purples for the DIVA quilt and started working on it tonight. I took a preview picture of the first block and then another picture of the purples I'm going to be using. In that first picture, I haven't entirely gotten the block together yet (just in case you're wondering about that). Hopefully I will have the entire row together by tomorrow night, Monday at the latest.

    I can't seem to get the pictures to upload so I just added a page to my website - click the link (or copy/paste into your URL).

    I love the fabric in the second picture on the right that looks like purple, blue and white feathers. Can't wait to see the row.

    I found it at Joann's. It's supposed to be kind of like the design you see in an oil slick on the road? It's pretty cool looking.

    I've been thinking the same thing. I'd love to see some pictures before our next mailing deadline. Any row scheduled to come my way can come any time. I'm caught up on all my projects right now.

    That is #1 on my calendar for tomorrow. I'm hoping I can get it in the mail Friday, latest on Saturday. The end of the semester came rolling in like a tornado and I was caught a bit unawares.

    Excellent, Kelly! I have NOTHING in progress on my machine right now. I'll just hold up until it gets here and off I'll go. I'm looking forward to working on it.

    The Diva quilt has arrived at my house. I'm off to search for fabric and our quilt store is moving so everything is 50% off. Is this my lucky day or what?

    I've got the fabric for the Diva quilt today. After reading Roda's notes about her granddaughter, I've decided on a diva cowgirl boot for one of the blocks. In my head, it looks pretty cool. Everyone cross your fingers that it translates from brain to fabric. Of course, if it doesn't I still have plenty of time to think up another plan.

    I'm almost done with the Diva quilt row. It's looking pretty good to me. Let's just hope Hailie agrees! I'll post pictures in a day or two.

    Excellent! It sounds like we are on track. I need one more thing to finish Hailie's quilt and then I will post a picture.

    The Diva quilt got ahead of the game. That's the only reason it's finished.

    The diva quilt is ready to go home! The buttons I used for dots in her name are just pinned for now. I hope everyone, but mostly Hailie, likes it. This quilt was really fun to work on. Thanks for letting me be a part of it!

    Since it is way ahead of schedule, I think I will keep it until after my quilt club meeting on June 4 so I will have something good for show and tell.
