    Well after a 3 hour class....and still counting....and a super long phone visit...I'm finally back to my class project....so far I've got 2 of the 4 melon units together, how is everyone else doing? I had to haul my "junk" out to the family room to be close to the computer....so just couldn't resist a photo of the mess as well...guess I'lll have to clean up & re-mess again next Sunday.

    Oooohhhhh, that bottom picture makes me wish I could come play in your sewing room! What is it about us quilters? We simply much run our fingers over any yummy fabric we see! :lol:

    Your two melons are beautiful. You're making me regret I was unable to make the class.

    I haven't sewn my melon pieces to the strips yet, but I thought I would post the layout. I got a little frustrated due to my lack of prep before class.

    My daughter asked me to sew these around a pillow case for her. That sounds like a good plan to me!

    those are some tasty melons. yummmm yummm!!! :P

    i can feel your "pain" thimblebug. until about a month ago, my computer and sewing setup were at opposite ends of the house. i had neither a proper bedroom nor a proper dining room. it's all in the dining room now. looks awful, but i just can't bear (bare?) the thought of dividing it up again. i'm not sure who would cry more - the computer, the sewing machine, or me. :lol:

    I love the melon colors--and that is the cutest snowman!! :D Okay--what happens to these yummy melons once they're together? Appliquéd to a back? I love the picture of you working away--seems you've not a care in the world except for quilting!

    That sounds like the perfect set-up Patrice. Right now my computer is in my bedroom (on the 2-floor) and my quilt room is in the basement. Trying to work between the two can be frustrating and very bad for the knees. Worse, when we had our little -34F weather, the pipe to my quilt room bathroom froze and I couldn't use the toilet. :shock: When we move and/or buy a house, I want one that is only one level and I want my computer with my quilt stuff!

    the solution is obvious, tiffany. stop feeding your family so you can buy yourself a whole new computer setup for your sewing room. :wink:

    Thats exactly what I did Patrice. Bought a laptop for me, so I can use it anywhere and no one else(which is only my hubby)!!! It was the perfect thing to do, but I actually needed my own computer for my business too.

    You stopped feeding your family? :shock:

    LOL! I think a laptop would be the perfect solution. The problem is that I can't keep myself from buying fabric long enough to save up the money to buy one. :lol:

    I'm just doing the one block right now, have bound it & backed it with Valentine's fabric. I put insulbrite in as batting so it can be used on the table as a hot pad.
