    [quote=Elizabeth A.]Well don't forget our start date isn't until July 15th, so nobody should feel behind! :D



    I started early because I wanted to be sure to get all of them done. Never know how tied up I am going to be playing Nancy Nurse with both my DH and mother's health issues. I am a procrastinator when I get interupted, it is always hard for me to restart. But I am on a roll now. LOL. Besides it is addictive once I make a block, I want to make another. I am not used to piecing by machine, usually do everything by hand so this is a real challenge for me and I am going to have to buy a new seam ripper soon. LOL I do a lot of nine patchs for our guild's communtiy quilts but the half squares and flying geese are challenging.

    I'm looking forward to paper piece but I can't remember if our group has any or not. If not, maybe next time.

    Oh yes DA Mayer it is our group (#2), it's the called Hunter's star and let me see... It's for Dreamxer.

    I'm glad you like the block. I had a bit of trouble with the matching colors, but that orange and yellow made it work perfectly (just yellow or just orange wasn't making it with the purple of the dino)

    Barbsbus I understand completely. I like to wrap one thing up before beginning another. I didn't used to do it that way and nothing got done, one project at a time works better for me! :D

    A few more finished. I am still waiting on fabric I ordered for Cordeila's Bambury Cross Block.

    Annie's Choice for Sandpat--I used 9 prints instead of 8--had a little accident w/ my rotary cutter on the baby blue fabric.

    Quiltwoman, thank you, thank you! That block is wonderful, I love it. I have a problem doing scrappy myself (too control oriented or as my DH calls it just plain Anal :oops: )...This quilt is gonna be great! All the blocks you've done are fabulous!

    My DH is getting along much much better. He got his staples out yesterday..all 80 of them. Yuck! ANyway, that made him feel better and I got to go to the quilt store since we were in the city. That made ME feel better..so see..it all worked out good :D

    Tomatoes are coming in now and fresh bi-color corn just now started. Yummy! I have to make pickles tomorrow..so still no sewing :cry:

    Quilt woman your block are beautiful!!! You do a wonderful job!! You should be proud of yourself.

    Sandpat I am glad your husband is doing better. Home made pickles sounds so good! As a kid my Mom used to make bread and butter pickles!

    Loretta--the scrappy star is Annie's choice from quilterscache. The other star is pieced star from quilterscache.

    Sandpat--I must have had 10 different tries at this block. Scrappy IS hard to me. Glad you like it. So glad your dh is doing well.
    How do you make your pickles? I have 2 kitchen countertops FULL of cucumbers and more coming.

    Thanks beachlady and Dazzle. It has been fun. I have put off working on my ugly stinker and now, it's time to get it done and OUTTA HERE...

    Me too Bebe.
    Thanks for the help on the "stinker". I'm in the process of "mulling it over".
    I have had fun. THANKS again for organizing it all.

    Oh, no! I was afraid someone would have to buy fabric.

    I like that yellow you used in that last block :wink:

    Your pinwheels are PERFECT!

    You made them both different too.

    I can't wait to work on a couple of those blocks this weekend. Since so many folks are running a little ahead of schedule, I'll catch up.

    Oh, I go the really hard way.. :lol: I buy the package in the grocery called Bread & Butter pickles. You just add vinegar and sugar and cut up your cucs. . jar them, then water bath processing. I haven't made any in years. We don't eat that many...I thought I would make some to give as gifts. I hate for anyone visiting our house to leave empty handed.

    Somewhere around here I have my Grandmother's recipe for freezer pickles and I'd take those pickles over fat quarters any day! But only if they were those pickles!

    Thank you, I really liked that gold color, infact I paid extra to have it just for that block, and it's been great to work with it. I think I used it in someone elses block too. but I'm not remembering.... OH! GooseCreek for Deb! Truly a good combination as picked by maribella, I'm so glad I clarified with her on which colors where.

    I need some help. This is the No Name Block #2 for Marianne. It turned out to be 12 1/2 inches, but I lost some of the points. I think I messed up when i sewed on the blocks in the corners of the green squares. The blocks kept coming out too small, so I redid them making adjustments. Can someone give me some tips on how to do this part?

    Don't worry Marianne. I intend to redo this block. :) If you don't like that color green, let me know, and I'll try another shade.

    Eliz. that block you made turned out beautiful!!!
    Puzwhiz maybe cut blocks 1/8 in bigger than needed and then cut down so you will not loose your points!!!

    Okay, Bebe gave me a tip. After drawing the diagonal line on the 2 1/2 in. block, sew onto the corner of the 4 1/2 in. block, but sew on the inside of the line, not on the line. It worked!! Yea!! Here is the test sample I did. Now I feel better about the block and I can redo it. Thanks, Bebe. You da bomb!!
