    I've been a bit quiet lately - been keeping up, but had trouble with my hands, still not a definite diagnosis so typing/sewing painful, but alot easier now.
    This are the two blocks which will make my new quilt (queen). Blocks are ten & a half ins. square. I am rotary cutting it, and think you can see having trouble with the centre perimeter section on the union block. The lilac points are half of 2 & five-eighths sq. The cream triangle is quarter of 4 & three-quarter sq. & no matter how I try they dont line up with the rest of it all. Thought about cutting the cream same as the lilac points but think the centre seam would spoil the effect.
    Anyway I think it will go together okay, dont you?

    Katrine, may I ask are those French fabrics, they look so delicate. Love the colours very much. Hope your hands and wrists get better soon. I suffer with RSI and it is extremely painful. I have a little machine I bought called a Novasonic (Intrasonic Therapy- sound waves) it wonderful works from within the muscle and after just a few sessions with it my wrist is fine again. You can buy them on the Web. I loaned it to a friend and was so impress she bought one, she had back trouble. Many Physiotherapists use and recommend them

    Thank you everyone for comments - I am still busy chainpiecing all the triangles!
    Izy & Elle, my hands problem is bizarre - every 10 days or so, one or a couple of fingertips & fingers swell and are so painful, sometimes my palms as well so badly I cant close my hands. It then disappears. I have had all the allergy tests going, including Lymes disease, all negative. Blood tests all normal. Have seen a consultant rheumatologist for tests & he doesnt know what the problem is. I am taking anti inflammatory tablets daily which help.
    I am hoping it's a temporary thing, or my quilting days will be limited.
    This quilt is going to be my first big free motion job - I have only dared tackle up to lap size so far.
    No, Elle, not French fabric - it is from the Timeless Treasures "Fleur" collection, and I actually had this lot a couple of years back from Hancocks Paducah, USA. But I had to scour the web to get extra when I decided on pattern!

    Hi Katrine, I hope you get relief soon, it is so debilitating to have something wrong with your hands especially. Good luck with the tests.

    Will have to look at some timeless treasures.
