How are you setting your blocks? Are you doing the train cars? Cant wait to see it....I did pet my Hobo stash yesterday if that counts for anything....not feeling too bad about not getting back to these *yet"....Because I am creating...which I was not doing for quite awhile.

I spent yesterday digging holes, trying to find the blockage in the septic line. Only one in a whole basket of domestic disasters which must the dealt with using brain and brawn,. I seem to be the only one functioning with both and the common good in mind. (Can you tell, living with brother and husband, TWO opinionated men.)

Anyway, I pledge to get back to work on the HOBO quilt while waiting for the final blocks to arrive from the group project. Wish me luck. Very Happy

Thats a great idea....too much work to do the entire quilt as train cars.
I petted the basket of fabrics yesterday....must first finish two poppy quilts.
Finished binding on first one last night...will start on second one this afternoon...depending how I feel after dental appointment. Maybe by next monday I can get back to this.

Oh yes, the Hobo quilt...... well, mine is still in pieces and in a basket to still be sewn. Maybe this spring/summer I'll get back to it. AFTER I get MY Log Cabin quilt finished.

I'm a and want to get myself one finished for a change......

Went today and did get the rest of the fabric to do 6 more blocks to complete the 36 I needed. Heading down now to cut the strips.

Memaw ... no no no I don't own a quilt shop I was just in charge on that particular Thursday evening and my topic was on scrappies.... I don't think I would like to own one you have to keep so busy with classes , quilds, meetings orders etc that you really don't the time to sew...
