Sounds good to me, Bearfoot! It's kind of crazy that it's the 6th and we still don't have a winner yet.

OK girls, I just ran the pattern off and ONE WAY OR ANOTHER I am going to get upstairs this weekend and get my fabrics for this. I can't stand it anymore. If someone doesn't get it done Bratt is going to have a heart attack and we don't want that!!!!!

I'm so excited! I just found 11 Merry Bee blocks, some of which are from this challenge! I was wondering about the significance of this one I had found last week already cut out ready to start w/ instructions attached! (I think I'll save it for a first time project for me during a holiday, spring or summer break.) Now I've found the rest already done that obviously go together. And now I know about the Quilt Along Challenge'08 so I have names for several of the blocks...not all of them. With the unfinished block there would be 12! I guess that's what is needed for a quilt. (Obviously, I don't know anything about this...wanted to learn from Mom...I was always too busy...) They are all black with jewel toned batiks (sp). Simply beautiful!

The Quilt Along is a "no stress" thing. A new block is announced each month and everyone makes up one in their choice of fabrics. Then we post pictures and see what different quilts look like using all the same blocks but different fabrics. The way the quilt is set is usually interesting too.
There will be 16 blocks (17 really...explaination in a minute :) ). There is a block for each month and 4 bonus blocks.
September's block has been announced
You can find the list of the blocks here

If you have questions...or you want someone to make up the 12 blocks you have of your Mom's...or if you want to continue her legacy and need help...just let us know! I know I would be willing to help and I am sure other's would consider it an honor too! Hug

Explaination: There was a paper-pieced block and a pieced block announced for one month. It was an either/or thing...but you could do both IF you wanted to...

And you can do different blocks if you don't like one that is choosen.....like I said..."No Stress"!

They weren't eligible...they have both already picked a MONTHLY block and now they have both picked a BONUS block.

Well, I REALLY liked A Gaggle of Pinwheels, but I just didn't feel like cutting out all those zillions of triangles or putting it all together with the way my allergies have been lately!
