    I suppose yes it could of been worse. Maybe that's why we havent been back in so long.. Im worried the next time it will be worse. LOL Dublb DH is a serious Dallas Cowboy Fan and yes he hates Jerry Jones! Last season I don't know how many times I thought he was going to cry as he watched Dallas play some REALLY bad games. Oh well, lol its a good thing there is an off season.

    Working on the DP9 again today. I feel like a woman on a mission with this quilt top. I am so in love with the mixture of fabrics I pulled from my stash. It's like the evolution of a masterpiece I don't want to let go of. My fingers are itching to get back to sewing this morning so I will say ttyl.

    Have a Great Day all.. And Safe Travels to our Ladies in the RV's
    Have an awesome day!

    Jenniky ... yes, some fabrics just grab hold of you, and you just can't let go of it! Another seam, another block ... just got to keep at it to see how it looks! Have a FUN day in the great chilly a/c!

    Oh wow, ladies, your doing awesome work. Some purty quilts here. I think I'll mosey back to the begining and drool a little more at all the inspiration. I hope it's ok to post a couple teeny R*W*B quilts. The twister is handmade by me and the star is handmade by Kaseycatz for the July 2012 DQ swap.

    Great quilts and made during the right time, too.

    Planning to start another one? We seem to do multiples here. I'll be starting another one in a month or two, when life slows down a bit.

    Speaking of U S patriotism, you may want to consider joining us at Quilts for Rosie - Weekly Paper Pieced Sampler Quilt Along beginning September 3, 2012.


    We will be using Quilts for Rosie - Paper Piecing Patterns from the '40s published by Kansas City Star Books. The 1940's Paper Pieced Sampler Quilt consisting of 20 paper pieced blocks that can be made in 4" or 10" blocks.

    You will need to purchase the book to be able to participate. The book retails for approximately $25.95 and is available online at Amazon.com, HomespunHearth.com, EBAY, Joann.com and Quiltfabricstore.com. No patterns or tutorials will be provided and no sign up is required.

    I'm sure you'll be seeing posts from this group here! Happy Quilting...

    Judith1005 ... a couple of cute mini's ... Here's hoping you did stroll thru the earlier pages, and now have lots of inspiration for a new patriotic project!

    PatriciaFaye ... thanks for the extra invitation. I believe that some of us from this thread have already found Rosie (and yes, I haven't decided for sure yet!). Perhaps you would join us here and do a new patriotic project with us!

    Jenniky ... Very Niiiiiice!! And you forgot to tell us about the yellows. Beautiful colour combos. I can see why you couldn't stop working on it. What colour of sashing are you going to use? front? back?


    DublB ... I don't do FB, but the way Jenniky has set it up, I was able to get in.

    Everybody - I'm so sorry about the confusion. I was able ta git in on this link. What I was sayin' was that I can't just go ta FB. I will only be able ta follow any further if Jenniky is able ta continue ta give us links. Again I'm sorry about the confusion. When I reread my post I realized that it sounds like I'm complainin'. I was late for an appmnt & shouldn't have even been on the board so I rushed my response. No complaints here.
    Jenniky - I'm especially contrite w/you. Please don't take what I said as a complaint. I'd love it if Patricia would allow ya ta post your thread about QAYG.

    DublB ... As I said, I don't do FB, but gave it a try and discovered that I was able to get in there. So I wanted you to know too, that it was set up so that we could go there.

    JenniKy...I love your colors. I'll be interested to see how you manage the sashing, etc. All I've read always said to leave 1/2 inch or so for seams and to be able to remove one layer of batting so the seam isn't so bulky. Waiting for your slick tricks

    GardnerGal, Here's a great link for QAYG that Krystyna posted in the July 2012 doll quilt swap. https://www.baysidequilting.com/stor...idCategory=284 This video makes QAYG very simple. I'm using a method that I found on the quilt board a little bit ago.http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...lt-t60764.html http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...ng-t36303.html But, I really wish I'd gone with the bayside quilting method. Next time.

    Having problems trying to post this picture so will have to post it sideways! I made this for my son who is a 2nd Lt in the US Army stationed at Ft Hood, TX. So proud of him. He is my hero.

    How nice that you were able to do this quilt for your son ... and I'm sure he appreciates having "home" a little closer to him at times. Hope that you will now create a new patriotic "something" along with us here on this thread. Maybe something for you this time ??.... perhaps leftovers from his for a special connection when you can't be with him?

    Hello Ladies

    Taking a few rest days to from all the traveling these past two days. We are suppose to hear Monday if we get the house in Lafayette Tuesday I am picking up the Patriotic Mystery Quilt from the LAQ. Then I will work on the binding and can show off my finished quilt.. I purchased the book Quilts for Rosie and Im thinking of joining the quilt along when it begins still on the fence though until I see the patterns. Have a wonderful day and safe travels for those on the road.
    Have an awesome day!
