    WHEW!!!! Today I decided to get up to date on the 2 months that I didn't have done - and I have to say - August and September went together really well.....

    Here's a photo of the Quilt Top with AUGUST'S HOT SIDEWALK!!!!

    And, here I have added SEPTEMBER'S APPLES.......I did change a little something on the apple - I didn't like the backgroud square on the bottom of the apple..so I just extened the red stripe.....

    Now what will October be....could it be a Fall Leaf...that's what I'm thinking....but then again, it may be a pumpkin or something Halloween.........

    Sorry that I have been so behind in my rows......but I was determined today to catch up - and VOILA!!!!!

    Glad that we are all having so much fun wiht this one - and of course, anyone that wants to join in - you can join in anytime......it will be easy to catch up......

    Hurray Bill! You're caught up and looking great! Great job so far...I really like your apples, your design is better than the original instructions, although I must say I have a love of applique for apples! but yours turned out just lovely!
    Glad you're caught up again!
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    HI MaryAnna....
    Great to catch up with you - yes, I perhaps should have done applique - it was in my mind..and then I opted for the origianl pattern..but the little background square in the base of the apple wasn't sitting with me so I just made the red strip longer...I prefer it like that - glad you think so as well :-)
    It is good to be caught up - I am cleaning though patterns, papers....having a good productive day.....
    Now, waiting for October's instructions...I am looking forward to having the next 3 months of rows so that I can start to see how I will finish this one off.....I think it is going to be a wonderful sampler quilt......I will be adding different rows or whatever because I am planning on this one being at least a throw or single size..perhaps even a double.......will have fun with it after the center panel is complete.......
    It has been a lot of fun so far :-)
    Hoep you are having a great weekend...
    Back to the sorting and organizing..... :-)

    Hugggggs Bill, I think you need to count again. I'm pretty sure there were at least 800 pieces in that January row alone!! LOL. Great job, your rows are looking wonderful.

    Wildyard...you are right..perhaps it is 1843 to date :-)....I think that that January row really had a toll on all of us....I look at it this way - everything project I've done since then has been a breeze.. :-)
    Hugs back at ya.;..so great to be back on track...I was even worrying myself :-)...Life just happens sometimes....
    But Quilting will eventually overcome!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

    Bill, I am glad to see you did the original pattern. I am thinking that is what I will do. No one else seemed to be pleased with it but I like yours. The month is getting away from me. Guess I better get busy. I have been side tracked with some Christmas projects I couldn't wait to start. I plan to devote some time this week to this project. (Maybe if I say that out loud it will really happen)

    Bill, your rows are great, your apples are neato and I am sure more involved than my apple row! You must post the changes you made to that pattern. Your August row is HOT too!

    Heh Sharon.... :-)...Got a great kick out of that....
    For my Apples, instead of having that little square at the bottom - I just made the red strip longer ...it was so easy....there was a bit left over - I just trimmed it off...... :-)
    SO, October's row is upon us...or soon will be......

    What!!! I just looked at the pattern. Not again! A challenge to say the least. But I will give it a shot before I throw in the towel.

    Yes, the only thing we are allowed to throw here is tantrums when the peices don't fit right. This is where the new word learning comes in. Now we get to apply all the new things (words, etc) we learned in January just to be sure we don't forget them. Aren't we lucky??? Smiles and hugggs!!

    I was feeling creative so wanted to try my hand at a candy corn block. My DD guessed what it was but my grandbrats guessed witches hats and candy corn. LOL.... what do you all think? I might alternate these with the choloclate kiss block. Or I might yet make the original candy blocks... hmmmmm. Choices, choices..
