    DH is still saying..."where oh where does ALL the fabric that you bring in here really go?? I never see any completed quilts..just lots and lots of blocks!!" LOL! He is right. I MUST finish up some quilts this year.
    I just looked at LBB and WOW! I've called Kathy an enabler before, but I think that it goes further than that - she is the "pusher-man"! Now I want to do LBB too! ARGH!

    Kathy, I am so glad you got the LBB - Elle has a copy, so do I and my friend Florence, and Debra too, so there are now a few of us. I am trying to talk Florence into getting broadband so she can join in here.

    Lynnie, I love your block too - you are the first to have a patterned 'ring' round this block, so another unique block.

    It will be a looooonnnnnngggggggggggg time before we start a cyber sew for LLB. This just came out of the blue & I'm so happy. HOWEVER, I will really have to practice as this one MUST be done by hand. I think I'll try freezer paper, but some of the stuffed work will be new for me.

    Maybe we can talk about it after AOTH is finished - afterall, we will be all juiced up for a challenge, won't we?

    This is true Patti, it is very expensive.

    Kathy the stuffed work is a breeze, its easy peasy.

    Patti it can be done by needleturn though I think it would be possible to do it by machine. However that is one I would definately enlarge, such tiddly pieces would drive me mad. I have already decided that I wouldn´t do all the blocks if I did make it but enlarge the ones I really liked and make my own design up.

    Here's my block 10 ! It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, but I had problems with the size of the reverse seam. One side got way too big and thus my seam is wonky.....
    Glad I have this extra time for practice, but since this one is for me, I'll keep it and see how I improve by the time I get to the end of it.

    Roxanne....lovely job! I think it looks great too. I did that with my Dear Jane. I didn't redo any blocks. The quilt really tells a story of how I improved. I'm thinking that this one will be the same way for me. Your block is wonderful...love the dots!

    Roxanne, it looks good to me too. I think if we look hard enough, there are always things we think we can improve.

    Have you noticed that even great artists are never happy with their work?
