    People are maybe wondering if I got them all done and I did, my parents sat here while I finished up the binding on this, My mom did a lot of work on it while I was finishing up other things. It is on it's way to BC now, and it will be washed etc and wrapped for Christmas, that is a huge job out of the way, not one but 4 quilts.

    The back has a fireman print on it.

    I don't have any grands, oldest is only 15, the one quilting is not my son, the little red head is a friends daughter. Nana has done some quilting but not near to the extent that I do it. she did a banner job helping me though, she taught me to sew long long ago and I got her into the embroidery work and the quilting.

    fabric for the back of the one quilt.

    Love it. I just love OBW. I can't believe how fast you and some of the others get quilts done.

    Wow! When you first posted the picture of the chili peppers fabric, I almost answered that I thought the print was too small and there weren't enough different colors in it. How could I be so wrong? That quilt is GORGEOUS!

    I really wanted to cut the chili peppers smaller but time wouldn't let me. using a print like that is great if you can cut what ever size that you want. I am going to be looking hard at LARGER prints for that if I ever do it again, I have two more prints here and yet again they are kind of smallish.

    One day I will start a thread maybe to talk about the obw, they are pretty popular with some people and others are scared of it. just not today.

    Kwhite, now why would you go and mail me something, it better not squirm when it gets here. :shock: I think I am kind of scared of what you would send me,

    For those that think that I am fast, after 15 years of sewing, the speed comes and a lot of it makes sense to me, who knows why, it just does, I won't argue with it, it works for me, I also don't work and on these I had help, I had some happy volunteers pressing to start with and then my mom did some of the sewing for me as well. she is the one that taught me to sew, and I got her into quilting more than she ever thought that she would go. She had alot of fun playing with blocks and such, it is a lot of fun when you can play with someone or a group of someones.

    Can you give me the sizes you cut to make the different size blocks? Is there a math formula for this? Not that I would be able to do it! lol

    Oh I bet it is fun with a group! I call hubby in to see how I have mine laid out and he says it looks fine. So I spend an hour on the floor re-arranging the blocks and call him again. And he says it looks fine. :(
