    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..
    Wildyard, you are so creative! I just love your blocks...they're so cute! And yes, anything but those pesky small pieces will be wonderful! ;-)
    Kind Regards,

    I just love how creative you all are and how you change the patterns to fit your own choices. Different takes that I would never think of. I tend to read the pattern and do as I'm told.

    Oh Boy! I just looked at the October row, Looks like I am in for another fun time :) But as I always say, never say never,, maybe a few other choice words,,, but never "never"!

    I truly hope to get caught up before the New Year! Happy piecing everyone! Be it Paper or Piecing.

    Huggles,

    I have been printing out the patterns to do. I found this thread and got inspired! So I started Januarys this last week. HOLY MOLY!!! I don't think I have ever sewn so many little pieces. But I am going to persevere.

    January is the absolute worst of all the blocks, so once you get it done, it's a piece of cake until October's block. You can do it.

    Oh Ligia, I love your apples. What a cute idea. You are all caught up. I am behind again, but I've been having so much fun with my other projects, I couldn't tear myself away. I'll catch up again soon!! I like your October row too, the candy corn is really cute!

    Oh good! Glad January's is the only one! I am trying to branch out more and do more complex blocks.

    Hi everyone! I too have had a bug and behind in my rows. I just love your rows Ligia! Wildyard you are a charm and your rows are always great! And MaryAnna, you too have great rows! I do hope to get caught up sometime soon. I am taking a hand quilting class and the doll quilt swap and this! Keeping up is hard at the moment! But I promise to finish this project BECAUSE it is a Grrrrrrrreat Mystery Quilt! :) Sorry to hear you have been sickened with food poisoning Bill, I hope you are feeling better soon.

    Wow! The quilts are coming along. I'm a drop-out. Those pieces were just too small for me, but I'm loving seeing you guys hard at work.

    I am aching to get back to this one. Life and other projects have gotten in the way. I may have to take a "sick" day from work to get the last few months done. I was doing very good until Sept hit and the apples didn't get done ...and now Oct is almost over and it is not done either.... I was hoping to keep up with this month by month.... row by row....concept. I will see this one through to the end...

    Yes, sometimes life does get into the way! LOL! roseofSharon, and all....don't worry, we'll all get them done. This is not a race, so whenever is just fine.
    Bill, I hope you're feeling better by now. I've been busy on other projects and yes, my life has 'gotten in the way' of this quilting project!
    i have hopes of knocking Oct out over the weekend. I know I'm not alone as I haven't seen many posting any pictures of their October rows either. come on guys, let's get to it before the Holidays are upon us!
    Blessings to all,
    MaryAnna

    It is fun to see the progress being made. I have completed only 3 of the rows at this point, and may not be able to complete the top before the end of the year, but I am collecting the patterns to use as I get a chance.

    Such cute results are being posted! I enjoy seeing the creativity.

    Oh my what a fantastic quilt!! I had not seen this thread since the first of the year as I had to lay off for a bit and get control of this silly RA that thought it would stop me.
    Slowed me down for a bit but I'm back to stitching and typing.
    Are the patterns still available? I'm going to buy printer ink today and if it is I'll print off the patterns and give it a go. Looks like an excellent stash buster...lol.. who am I kidding.. looks like a great reason to buy more fabric...rofl..

    Is anyone having a problem with the rows not being the same length? I cut everything the way it said and a few of the rows are a little shorter?

    I think that's why the background setting pieces are all a little different at the ends of each row. Just adjust to make sure it comes out the same.
    Because I am enlarging all of my blocks and rows, mine are really cattywompus so I am not sewing the rows together till the last thing.

    Yes, none are the same...so you'll have to make some adjustments along the way.
