Anita, I'm so glad that you're going to use the pattern  Very Happy Lots of times I'll get a new pattern and it will sit and sit...

Of course, that's not the case with the magazine/pattern you sent to me, I jumped right in and started making those hundreds of HSTs right away!

Mom's visit kinda put a wrinkle in the sheets for my HST adventures, but now that she's gone I'm looking forward to getting back to it!

I love the fabrics you chose and I think it will be quite sweet when it's done. Please keep us updated on your progress!!  Smitten

I will, Tracy! I am so glad I could send you that pattern!

Marynel, I had seen that fabric advertised in a magazine years ago and fell in love with it. Later found it at the LQS. One of those I bought it cause I loved it, but had no plans for it. So glad I can use it now! I started working on the brick quilt yesterday but this is next!  anitas

Here's an update - I'd posted on my blog about this quilt yesterday and now that I'm rested (from a hitherto-unheard-of 5 a.m shift yesterday  Shocked I got to work on more blocks.

I was surprised to learn that I'd finished all of the 'whole' blocks, so today I did the partial blocks that continue the pattern into the first border.  What's left is a whole lot of pieced sashings; I'll print out the foundations for those from the website and maybe get a start on them tomorrow.

So far I'm using only scraps (I am absolutely amazed at how many I'm uncovering in my cleaning/organizing!); each block is from one fabric. I'll continue that with the pieced sashings - each one will be a different fabric. I'm pretty sure that I won't have much problem finding enough in my 'bin' to not have to duplicate any fabrics!





And, just to mix things up a bit, I'm not using a corn dog box!  I'm using one of the pizza boxes Roni brought to everyone at retreat.

Awww, thank  you  Smitten   My UFO (corn dog box) goal has been set aside for a bit, obviously... but since I've been doing the clean/organize of my sewing closet I keep uncovering more boxes. At last count I had NINETEEN boxes that all have stuff in them.   azn

Not usually - probably because it's summer and I'm eating more fresh stuff and unintentionally avoiding processed foods.  Though I admit last night I wouldn't have complained about a pizza from the pizza parlor, probably paired with an ice cold beer.  Except for the cost. Then I would have complained.  lol!

Yes, I am! I've said it before - I don't know how or why this has grabbed on to me so hard, but I'm just going with the flow for now!

pizza and beer, thats sounds good, tell me, what does a large pizza cost in the states now? There was one place in town doing them a couple of years ago and they started at $25 (for eg a hawiian) needless to say they didnt get our business

The 48 sashing strips are taking some tiiiiiiime. Oy. I'm using paper foundations and sticking with one fabric per strip.  I have lost track of how many I have finished, but I'm pretty sure I'm not at the halfway point yet.



I'm at home today, feeling a bit poorly - either something I caught from the hour and a half wait at the clinic  angry  or because yesterday I was at the quilt shop and there was a tiny fire upstairs (in the apartments above the shop) - it was put out quickly, but I took in a lot of smoke.  Either way, I got someone to cover my shift at work and I'm home, coughing and generally feeling ooky.

If I feel a bit better later on, you can be sure I'll take a whack at making a few more sashings!

Sure hope you feel better soon. Neither smoke nor germs sound good. Take care.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Yesterday was the Perfect Storm. And not in a good way.  Apparently it was a germ from the waiting room (someone tell me WHY I can't bill them for my lost wages because I had to call in sick to work??) plus the cough from the smoke, and HEY! why not start my monthly girl stuff, too??

I had a temp of over 100 all day, didn't feel like sewing or knitting or surfing or even playing a game on the puter... all I could do is stare straight ahead, basically.  We had cartoons on for MoonPie, so I think I watched about 6 hours of My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop (with a Scooby Doo finale, as I recall).  


Today I'm working at the quilt shop so at least I'm allowed to sit down. My back and ribs hurt from the coughing.

The good news is I lost 6 pounds. Pretty sure most of it was dehydration, but if 1 or 2 stay off I'll be fine with that.

Bummer Tracy. Sure hope you feel better soon. Did the smoke damage anything in the store or just your lungs.
