    Teresa really nice summer sun! Love the sky background!

    On the August theme ... it's optional! And I would think tone on tone counts. How's this for an idea ... when I post the sign up I'm going to ask those who do not want to do a solids only to say as much and I will pair you with someone with similar tastes. OK? OK!

    On paper piecing ... I love, love, love it. There are so many free paper piecing patterns online that you can try using regular old printing paper. Here are a couple of links:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/links-r...s-t179270.html
    and
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/links-r...s-t179271.html

    I was already to start my June quilt and then ... uh oh ... another idea. I was watching an episode of Fons and Porter on fabric weaving ... so back to the drawing board.

    this month was really fun! i'm glad i stretched my fingers and tried something new! and the good news is dh won't find any sign of the dyeing in the kitchen. wasn't as messy as i had feared! yay!!
    i bit the bullet and bought some rwb. it's for another swap, but there will be plenty left to do july! then on to solids. i love the themes, it gives me a focus. otherwise it gets too crowded in my brain with ideas and 'what ifs'. maybe i'll crack open youtube and try pp.( i could tell because the points were so precise and the parts of the block weren't normal configurations ( as in piecing with squares would be). it's on my list of stuff to learn! such a long, long list! it's so fun to see what others do and realise i can get there, one step at a time. thanks for pushing my limits!!

    Ms Cupid, Very pretty. Great minds think alike. I paper pieced this month too. I like your bright sun!! Beautiful points.

    My partner is Birdlady. She received her DQ yesterday and her computer is in the shop. So, I'm going to post a picture for her for now.

    Rosemary, I'm not "excited" about PP either, but it's ez and convenient for BOM and DQ's. I would NEVER do a whole quilt via PPing!

    Lookie what I received in the post today, my gorgeous little quilt from Ronda (rwquilts) and I just love it - so much detail and the crazy little blocks in the border - wow they are so small. I also got a lovely needlecase, a pretty piece of blue batik fabric and a nice card. I am feeling pretty special right now Thank you for being such a lovely June swap partner

    Ronda, I posted your DQ to you right after I got yours so it's on its way and hopefully should be to you late next week (or sooner).

    Rosemary, my brother's left handed too, so I kinda know what you're going thru. My parents once bought him a guitar for Christmas but forgot he was left handed so they didn't get it restrung so he never got to play it.

    Oh, my, such wonderful eye candy!! These quilts are beautiful this month. I got Abonda's DQ done over the weekend, but will have to mail it tomorrow. MIL had back surgery 2 wks ago and I have been staying with her overnight, just in case she needs me, she is nervous about being alone, and I don't blame her! Anyway, we got up this morning and she had no power in the kitchen. Then my son called and needed daddy to come look at his truck. Well, I needed to get to work and we are down to one vehicle, so I jumped on my scooter. I didn't have room to bring all the stuff I planned on mailing today, so it will have to wait until tomorrow. I have had soooooo much fun with the swaps! This one is really great for me, I am trying new stuff and loving it. Oh, Abonda, I took your quilt up to show the MIL and she loved it. I left it hanging on her sofa to look at for a while. I made it clear that it would eventually go home with me, but since I am rarely home lately, she might as well enjoy it for a while. She like the one I made, too. That is always nice. Can't wait to see if you like it. Soon.

    Judith, I just love your little quilt! Lucky Birdlady. It's so cheerful.

    Ronda, what can I say? You absolutely knock the ball out of the park every single time. What a fabulous quilt!

    Barbara, love the tumblers. Such a fresh and homey look. Love it.

    I have to get to work on mine. Still sitting and pondering. At this rate I'm going to ponder myself clear into July!

    I am so impressed! You all really raise the bar!
    Judith you picked perfect fabrics and i love how you turned this block into a kite quilt!
    Ronda - those are lucky little birds living in a crazy log cabin bird house!
    Barbara - how perfect to use those fabrics in a tumbler quilt! It looks like they were made for it!

    Onalee you have been having a crazily packed couple of weeks - it's amazing that you got your quilt finished! Hope your MIL recovers well and fast!

    I am a handsewing chicken, especially so when it comes to applique. Just tried my first machine applique though. I admire anyone who hand sews and can do so neatly.
    But no.... I wasn't referring to Paper Piecing... I was exercising my juvenile sense of humor. (Don't they have a more embarrassed looking smiley face than this?)

    Thank you, Carron!! Yep, finally got a # ~ it's 10,805 and hope it sells! lol. Heavy competition! Probably in Sept. it'll be listed for sale as they are pretty far behind right now.

    Great job, Mscupid! Love the summer sun and excellent PP! WTG!!
