I did! I am working of a few of row A. I live so close to the beach and traffic gets backed up. I am not going anywhere. Happy Sewing Y'all!

Thank you. It is one of my favorite reds. I have used it before in other quilts. Leans toward blue rather than orange.

I love the big tennis tournaments and have been to Wimbledon on many occasions x
I will be looking forward to our next group of blocks but I will be at a quilt retreat next weekend. I have already cut and bagged 7 blocks and maybe 10 of the sashing blocks. That will be enough to do along with my other projects.

It has been nearly 19 months since our last retreat and only 12 are attending when we usually have 35 - 40.Looking forward to some serious sewing and lots of time with quilting gal pals. Most of my projects are actually already in the car. Yes, I am excited!!

Good morning all - I can't believe we are already in June and time for some new blocks - where did that month go !!!
Here are the next months blocks.

Week 13

June 5th.

F3 Massachusetts

F7 Mrs Bryans Choice

Week 14

June 12th

H1 Prickly Poppy

H10 Scotch Square

Week 15

June 19th

J5 Virginia Star

J6 Wagon Tracks

Week 16

June 26th

B2 Bridal Wreath

B7 Confluence


I opted out of J5 and B2 at the moment and substituted two blocks from the Loyal Union Sampler. I am no good at applique and J5 looked very complicated - I might have a go at the one later !!

Here are my eight blocks.

Nice looking blocks, Dotty! I agree with you about the applique. 6" blocks are hard to do. However, I hope to try some fusible applique for a change. I'm not good at it, but it seems a good solution for that tiny block.

Good Morning Y'all! Thanks Dotty for the next blocks. Love how this set is the same yet different. I am skipping the applique blocks also. One inch leaves are a bit too tiny for me. I have actually decided to recalculate how many blocks I need. I figure if I make 77 blocks. I can do a setting 7 blocks x 11 down. With 2" inner border and 6" outer border, I'll end up with a 56 x 80 quilt. A large twin. I am going to make almost all the blocks and throw extras as a vertical strip on the back or even a pillow sham. At least that's the plan for now. Happy Sewing everyone!

I am at my quilt retreat and just remembered that today HJ new bock day! I have already made J6 Wagon Wheels, and said no to B2 and J5. I only need about 20 more color blocks for my version of the quilt, but I may make a few more for another project.

I got on a rant this past week and finished all of the Pennsylvania Blocks for the version on page 91 that I am doing. A nice easy block when the group comes on G7. I can still say that after constructing 48 of them.

Hi, Dotty! Thank you for the new set of blocks, yours are beautiful! I'm almost through month 2 blocks, hoping to pick up some speed as I get more used to the FPP.

Thank you all - nice to hear from you ! Here in the UK we keep thinking things are getting better re the Covid, but sadly our numbers seem to be increasing again - thank goodness for our hobbies !!!

Let us know how you get on with the applique Mkotch ?

Toverly - the plans for your quilt sound great.

WMUTeach - Hope you are having a great time at your retreat - must be lovely ! The layout on page 91 is very nice - look forward to seeing it when you finish it !!'

Beth - My substitutes from The Loyal Union quilt for this months blocks are - G3 Maryland on page 58 for J5 and I9 Spotsylvania Court House on page 80 for B2. Previously, back in March - I substituted G4 - Oregon Trail with J9 Union Hall on page 86.

Joe'smom - yes FPP does need some getting used to - you will I am sure !!

Hope you all have a good weekend xx
