    Oh QuiltE I think that Prairie Points would look great w/your PC quilt. Some in blue, some in yellow & some in maroon. Wow, that would just set it off.
    Now that I got my card back I'll pull out the stuff I was playin' with last fall w/the square in a square, & take picts. After my Great Nephew's B-day party.

    MUV, I was wondering if your 1952 quilt is for me, since that is the year I graduated from high school. I would love it.

    I did a thread with picts of my Square in square method. Actually someone else came up w/it, I just don't remember where I saw it done. I think it was in a magazine. My memory is gittin' worse by the day.
    Here's the thread.

    QuiltE, you twisted my arm on this! I've got a potholder designed with some fabric that was sent to me (was there a method to your madness QuiltE (lol).

    Jenniky, I am also doing the Quilters Club of America Mystery Quilt. Last years turned out spectacular, not so sure about this one????? I like the idea that they use a jelly roll as the main "ingredient". Makes it so simple.

I'm anticipating a very leisurely process which I hope I like. It may take me several years if I get it completed.
    Gardnergal, I would love to know about your applique book with the Bird of Paradise Quilt in it. I did a Bird of Paradise
    block several years ago, which was a pattern from the Applique Society, but I've never done anything with it yet.

    I will look for you on the "Are you Ready for MQ6" blog... Would love to see your colors. Are you using their jellyroll or a different collection???
    Have an awesome day!

    1998 ufo

    I posted this on another thread, but thought I would share here too. I started this in 1998. I just finished it with an older machine and I am waiting for my Janome to be fixed so I can finish quilting it.

    I already had a Benartex Aubrey Rose jellyroll, and found one of the fabrics in stock at Missouri Star Quilt Co. to use for the border. I got the 4 patches turned into 8 patches yesterday. We are going out with our camping group tomorrow and won't get home until Thursday, so will not get the 16 patches done by next Friday. I'll get caught up the next week, I hope!

    Hopefully the RV Park will have free WIFI. If so, I can keep caught up on what is happening. If not, I'll be reading for hours when I get home.

    Skowron5 - Can't wait to see your quilt finished, you are so very nearly there!

    Progress report... bought the backing for the quilt on Friday, a pretty briar rose pattern, very vintage looking, and finished making the top for the wall hanging this evening...

    It still needs the border, quilting and binding... once I know I haven't wrecked it!

    Here is a link to the book I bought. There isn't a lot of detailed technique in the book but the patterns are complete and don't need resizing. The blocks are 14 inches for the body of the quilt and the borders are 8 inches. Beautiful pictures. No quilting patterns either. This is going to be a long time process for me but it's a beautiful pattern and individual blocks can easily be used for a wall hanging or even chair pads.

    Wow. Don't go on the computer for a couple of days and look what happens.

    Jenniky - looks GREAT! Well done.

    dublb - I have bookmarked the square in a square thread. Thanks. I should be able to work on it in about a week. Was awake at just after midnight on Sunday morning so got up and got my mystery block all sandwiched and ready to quilt. When that is done. Canada D'Eh gets my full attention.

    JeanieG - glad you joined us and looking forward to seeing some potholders.

    skowron5 - so glad you are planning to finish your patriotic UFO with us. It looks wonderful. What is the significance of the sailboats? Tell us a story.

    Muv - wow, what progress. Didn't you originally say you were planning to be finished in October? Well done. Hope we provided some inspiration and sooo looking forward to seeing the finished project, or even the almost finished project.

    Way to go everyone. Keep up the great work.

    This was a pattern in a magazine. I assume the sailboats are because that is how the pilgrims got to America. We also live near the bay of Green Bay and love to watch the sailboats.

    Here is an update on my Patriotic Mystery Quilt. Clue #4 was to use the four patches from step one to make twenty-four 16-patch blocks. I hate to rush the week ...but is it FRIDAY yet.. LOL... Can't wait to see what's next.
