    Here is my practice block for Kelly's quilt. The flying geese really came out much better than I expected. What's up with all the horror stories I've heard about them? Is this beginner's luck?

    I purchased a cd called Triangulations 3.0 a year or two ago. It lets you print out HST, QST, and FG paper templates - you sew through the paper onto the fabric, trim, and tear the paper off. If I have to do anything smaller than 3.5" FG, I use the templates because I have a problem with distortion when I iron.

    I might can send you a copy of the FG paper pattern if you want?

    Kelly, I never once thought about paper piecing them! Duh! I did an entire quilt of paper pieced HST, but didn't think about it for flying geese. Some days I can be an idiot. If the next practice block isn't as pointy as I like, I'll just draft them and off we'll go! Thanks for the plan.

    Happy Thanksging to you all. Pat I had my husband mail out my bock for me on Monday, I am not sure how he sent it. Please let me know when you get it. I think he said you should get it on Wedsday but its hard to say at this time of year. Have a wonderful day everyone. All of your rows look awesome. I did get one picture of mine but I don't know how to get it posted. I will ask Bill to help me today while I am sitting with mom.

    Roda it looks like you have your blocks done and your row looks great! I don't know if you sent your row or not but just to let you know I have not received it yet but maybe you are waiting for the first to send it out and that is fine with me.

    I bought some real fabric for Kelly's row yesterday. My plan is to work on it at night when I can't work on my double wedding ring quilt. The double wedding ring is being quilted with invisible thread and once it gets dark that is impossible for me.

    When you all get something going, please post pictures. I love pictures!

    Here is my a part of my row for Kelly's quilt. If I get far enough away to show the whole row, the colors look weird. It's not as perfect as I'd like, but nothing ever is, is it?

    Thanks, Kelly. I kind of love the colors, too. I may have to think up another project with them.

    OK, ladies. We've made it to the first of the year. How are the rows going? If anyone has anything to show, it would be great to get some pictures up here.

    I'm ready to mail at any time. I was planning to hold of until mid month just so no one is rushed, but if Roda is read let me know.

    Kelly, you can feel free to ship me what you are working on whenever you are finished with it.

    I just got back from the store buying a few more FQs. With any luck (and I've got buckets) I should be ready to mail by Monday. Worst case, it will be out by the end of next week (cause school starts back up a week from Monday)!

    Pat_sews, here is a little preview of the fabric I'm using for your row.

    It's about 2 degrees outside and so I have found a way to rig my own line for drying. Because it's inside, you guys get to see my "office" which is a gigantic mess right now!

    I don't think your office looks bad at all. The piles are all small enough you can see what is under them. That's good enough for me!

    Wow, Roda, I love it! It is exactly what I had in mind. Thanks so much for your hard work. I'll get Kelly's rows in the mail to you ASAP.

    Later.....

    I just printed the mailing label and put the row in the mail to Roda. I'm really starting to love that Click and Ship deal!

    You will do fine on my quilt when your turn comes, Kelly. Pick a traditional block (or several) and go for it. Everything looks good in black and white.

    I wanted to use the same block but I did make a simple change on the two end blocks. Maybe you will see it, maybe you will not

    Kelly, your row blends beautifully with what Pat sent you. I see the change in the outside blocks and think it goes well, too. Looks like I need to be thinking fall colors for when it visits me next.

    Wowie ladies all of your blocks look awesome I have no idea how I am going to add to them, I have never done a Dresden plate and it all looks so complicated. I finished my row on Roda's quilt. I will try to snap a picture this morning and post it. The "Diva" theme was hard for me but fun. I am pleased with the colors and may do a blach, white and lavender for myself someday! I really appreciated using colors and prints that I probably would not have before round robin! Thanks for the opportunity!
