    Deara

    Your URR Quilt is wonderful - I love it & so will your DH. Love your choice of the colours you've used too.

    I have the book by E Burns but to date haven't used it - however I am involved in the Pioneer Blocks BOM here on the board. You ought to take a look they are all so different.

    Thank you so much Brazen.
    I have spent countless hours working on these blocks.
    The time goes by so quickly when you enjoy what you are doing.
    I started out doing only the first four too.
    I was waiting for my LQS to get the Large Flying Geese ruler in.
    I had no experience doing any other blocks except Friendship Star and Nine-Patch.
    This has truly been a happy learning experience.

    Thank you Tisha,
    Fabric does speak to you if you listen.
    I have been peeking in on the Pioneer Blocks BOM thread.
    I promised myself and hubby I would not start too many projects at once.
    I still have my quilt in my avatar to finish.
    I have a Christmas wallhanging kit to do, another new concept I will be learning with that.
    I also love the Dear Jane thread. Been toying with buying the book and jumping into that too, but promises are promises.
    So many things I like and want to do.

    Beautiful !! I love your border and sashings. Wish I had thought of that when I made my top (which is now a UFO, unfortunately). Your piecing is perfect.

    You should feel blessed by the luv you will always get back from hubby.
    Maybe becasue it is of an older era fabrics, you should try hand quilting with over-all pattern of Baptist Fan, its half circles and would compliment all those beautiful blocks
    happy stitchen

    You did a wonderful job on your URR quilt! The colors are so complimentary of each other. The dresdan plate is beautiful and I reallly like the way you made the sashing and the borders. The backing is perfect for this as well. Beautiful!

    Your quilt is gorgeous. It is wonderful that both you and hubby created this fantastic treasure. You did a great job--and you even tackled the curves of the drunkard's path. Love hubby's fabric choices. Love the backing.

    I don't know if I am more impressed with your quilt, or the fact that your hubby went fabric shopping with you and looked at fabric, and picked some out! :wink:

    Beautiful quilt. I love your backing fabric. My DH would love that too. He is a huge history buff and the Civil War is one of his favorites!

    Quiltncrazy,
    I am a very blessed woman to have such a supportive hubby.
    He knows the names of all the blocks in this quilt top. :D

    There is a country route we like to travel that has a couple of barns with quilt blocks painted on them.
    He spied them before I did and told me the names of the blocks, before I could tell him. :shock:
    I smiled and he said, 'I pay attention when you show me something.' :lol:

    He also picked out the binding fabric.
    He has been such a positive driving force for me. :thumbup:

    He has blessed me with three sewing machines this summer. :lol: :D
    I have used one of them to do some of the piecing of this quilt top. :thumbup:
    I will post pics sometime later of each one, a Singer Treadle, a Singer Featherweight and a Singer Handcrank. :lol:

    Sandi
