    Smiling! thanks Diane. Look forward to seeing yours. Course I still have 8 more snowflakes to do lol.
    Here's what I have so far. I want to make some more hearts, then play with the fabrics to see which ones I want duplicates of.

    I love how you made your hearts with other than red fabrics! Gives me ideas for some of the other blocks! :D
    Oh yours look lovely. and thanks .. I am still finding I left out a row of white on the snowflake so will take the boarder off and add that and then will be able to sq it off to 4 1/2"


    I look fwd to hearing how it goes with you and the snowflakes!
    goodnight it's bedtime for me.. daylight savings time kills you!

    I loved your BOM. That is truly gorgeous fabric. I will have to save my Euros in case I come across something similar there. We'll have to live on ketchup soup for the next month so I can have Euros for fabric! :)

    Off to research quilt shops in Paris!

    RoseofSharon, good luck. I'm looking forward to seeing your results.
    JanieW,
    I would love to go, but can't this year...so I expect you to take pictures and post a few. You must visit Montmarte. It is the oldest part of Paris, the Basilique du Sacre-Coeur is beautiful; however, my favorite is on the backside of Sacre-Coeur...St. Pierre de Montmarte , it's the oldest church in Paris and in that neighborhood are some of the oldest restaurants in Paris, you'll also find Salvadore Dali's place & museum. When I went to Paris I too did not go on a 'tour', but I researched and bought a couple of guides. AAA Spiral Guides are good and I recommend National Geographic Traveler Paris guide.
    Ah there's so much to do and see in Paris! One trip is never enough! Do take the water boat tour of the Seine at night, you can catch the boats by the Eiffel tower. And be sure to visit the gardens, they're all magnificent!
    I'm getting long winded!
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna

    I can attest that there is nothing more beautiful than April in Paris! My favorite church is Ste. Chappelle. It has the most beautiful stained glass. It is incredible!!

    If you get a chance, take one of the tour buses through Loire Chateaus. It is beautiful that time of year. And Chantilly is also beautiful. But best of all, share a kiss at the top of the Eiffel Tower at midnight! The best view in the world!

    Oooh, I'm revisiting all those wonderful memories!!

    :-P

    Bill,
    I'm not sure we will get there, but if we do I will surely mention your name.

    gai gai, all that you mention is on the list except midnight at the Eiffel tower so I'll pencil that in! We have a day tour of the Loire Valley and threee chateaux all booked. Also planning a daytime cruise on the Seine as well as a nighttime one. We only have 12 days so there's lots to cram in.

    Mary Anna, your advice has been noted as well. Great suggestions which we will take.

    roseofSharon,
    good for you. Your work is great! I hope to see the rest of those snowflakes soon. You can only do so much Susie Homemaker stuff you know. :)

    Hey Everyone,
    Ok, so where's everyone's pictures? Anybody get anything done yet? I haven't even started February yet, but hopefully will do so this week.
    Kind Regards,
    MaryAnna
    PS. Yes, my picture has changed as my Birman cats were adopted by a sweet family. I'm a bird watcher as well and the Carolina Wren is our State bird.

    Hey Neoma,
    Yes, I agree that continuing the strip inbetween would look much better; a sense of continuity.
    Kind Regards,

    We have a (pesky) Carolina Wren in our back yard. I cannot believe that such a tiny bird can make such a loud noise - and especially early in the morning. :thumbdown:

    I finished my hearts last night, will post pictures tomorrow. Of course I haven't done the snowflakes yet, but bought a piece of fabric last night to make them with. :)

    OK, after the initial fiasco, I've drafted out a paper-piecing pattern for the snowflakes, and made a trial one. It worked great. I'll make a couple of real ones and post a pic, but then I need to work on my IRR center for a while.

    I sent an email to Claudia to inquire about the strip as there were no instructions. The answer was to add shamrocks directly to the hearts with no strip.

    We can do it which ever way we like, but I wonder then if we will have to take that into account when we get directions for adding the borders when it's all finished.

    It's not big deal either way, just a matter of preference and remembering to adjust the borders.

    I've been printing the patterns, but so far haven't made the first stitch. Keep those beautiful photos coming. They are so inspiring!

    It great that we are all having such a wonderful time..
    With regards to adding the rows..I love the idea of the small strip in between....but for me it will be a preference..in case some don't like that.....but now I hope that I have enough of the backgroup fabric to be able to finish... :-)

    Bill if you bought metres instead of yards, you should be ok. Those strips are pretty narrow and you only have nine more rows to go! :)

    Janie,
    I decided to try to do this quilt entirely from my stash..and I just a 2 yard piece for the backing..and now I figure if I'm adding extra rows...I am hoping I have enough - unless of course the calculations also include some of the backing for a border..in which case I can always do a different border...and that will save me :-)......
    I can't wait til next week to get the April directions!!!!!!
    When The May instructions come out I'll be away on vacation..won't get to those til the middle of May - what will I do :-)

    Oh Bill , I know how you're feeling. I will be at my Grandkids when April comes out. I'll be able to see it, but I won't be able to sew!! Then I will be in Paris when May comes out. Poor me. Ha ha.

    We'll survive , but it's the curiosity of what the rows will be for the next couple of months that will kill me.
