    I love that Hunter's Star block for the other group. That looks really, really hard!

    I won't be sewing again until Friday. I only sew on the weekends. So, I'll see if I can't get my block to come out right. I'm really jealous all of you can sew your 12.5 inch blocks and I can't.

    I follow directions. I don't fudge on the directions. But, the site calls them to be 12 inch blocks. I think that's how they're supposed to come out. To get another half inch to them has to require fudging and I'm not that good at that yet.

    I measured all my quarter inches and they were perfect quarter inches and the block was a perfect 12 inch block.

    I'll try adding and extra eighth Friday and see if that does it.

    Cordelia,
    Maybe you are thinking something else about 12.5? What we mean is the block needs to measure 12.5 unfinished and when it is put into the quilt it will be 12 inches finished. Are yours measuring 12.5 unfinished?

    Hope this helps????
    I have tired calling you so we can talk this out but no answer. Give me a call tomorrow evening if this hint does not work. Do not get discouraged okay???

    I absolutely can't wait to start my blocks. I've started some planning but have been really busy the past couple weeks and have had some other projects that needed finishing first. I'm hoping to get started this week!

    By the way, every single block has turned out beautifully. Good job, ladies!

    Wish i could start already, no time yet. Son gets married in a month from tomorrow. So much to do so little time. Other son having a baby in 4 months, oh my, what's a mother, quilter to do. Can I get everything done by the deadlines??????????? I am hoping I will have time to enjoy making the challenge blocks, the nice thing is it is not a whole quilt.

    Dont mind sharing a bit. Alls the pink butterfly is, is a log cabin block with a nutrual color to make the main color stand out. In the pattern I saw the entire think was done in the log cabin style.

    Just checking in. I have not started my blocks yet. I have to admit I am already in vacation mode. I don't leave til the 17th.

    I will most likely will not get started til August. I already have some fabric set aside. And I made notes of everything I need. I am going to a big quilt show in CA. So I hope to pick up most of what I need while on vacation.

    Hi Bettlove,

    Yes I am finishing up with your center, I just have some more work on the corners.

    The quilt show is in Long Beach. I can't wait to get there. I wish I had more than a day there. I just might be able to sneak in another couple of hours on the last day of the show 8)

    Sorry I wasn't home, Bebe. I'm on the road all the time. That's why I only sew on the weekends.

    I'll try again and see how things go on Friday. I should be able to figure it out.

    Well Cordelia, I tried to order fabric for your Bambury Cross block. All I was able to get was the black Kona. Apparently, you and I have good taste. The gold/orange fabric I found was "unexpectedly out of stock due to overwhelming demand". I thought that was pretty funny :wink:

    I didn't want anybody to have to order fabric! And I'm not picky about the orange either. It can be yellow or orange or shade of both. A fat quarter from Joanne's at the most!

    I'm not picky about the black either. Just plain old black anyone's got in their stash. I don't care if the shades are all different at all.

    I love the bambury cross so much. It is my favorite, favorite block.

    I made this pillow for my lilac lap quilt. I usually make a bambury cross pillow and pillow cases with leftovers for all my lap quilts. It's a great way to use up scraps leftover from projects.

    Cordelia and mghrs, the fabric I ordered for your blocks came today from Quilt in a Day, so I guess I should start working on the challenge again. Have 3 in college's half done - getting lazy in the heat I guess.

    Love your bambury cross projects Cordelia.

    LOL It gets hotter than that sometimes Cordelia. Even into the 90's in the summer. Of course the water doesn't get very warm - but we brave it once in awhile.
