Eileen:
I've got another busy week coming up so if I don't pop in again before next weekend, I hope everyone has a great week

Darn, Eileen, I missed you.  I was going to ask if you are going to the Iowa retreat next September.  If so, I'll bring along some fabric to try my first stack-n-whack, and you can advise me on the cutting.  Yours looks terrific!

Dh is laying down, exhausted after a long day at work & not enough sleep last night & the dogs are with him so I snuck on!! Gee, darn - can't vacuum while he's napping! LOL

I hope to make it out to Iowa - DH & I are doing our vacation plans for next year & hope to work that in. His Dad is from Iowa (Cedar Rapids) & we like the state - very pretty - so I am pretty sure we'll be there. I just have to figure out what he can do while I sew!

I'd be happy to try to help you with a Stack N Whack.  Do you have one of Bethany Reynolds' books? She's the creator.  There are patterns like mine requiring 6 repeats of fabric & some requiring 8. There may be a couple where you can use 4 or 5 - it's best to get a hold of one of her books & see which pattern you like.  You'll want spray starch, too - using it makes the fabric stiff & the bias on the triangles easier to sew.  They;re time-consuming but so fun :-)

Prairie dog, I kept getting error messages when I was trying to post with a quote in it & while some worked, the problem got worse til I finally gave up & just posted comments without quoting the original post. Does this make sense or is my head in the sand? No, wait - is your head in the sand? Is there sand in my keyboard? Never mind - Monday night humor ain't my strong suit!  Maybe my computer has some "splainin' to do ;-> (Ricky's always good for a quote!)

Eileen,

I thought someone from QCA told you to stop quoting without footnotes or something.  It was probably your sand issue.

How beautiful!  My grandma taught me that block, foundation pieced on a piece of gingham with a hand needle when i was just a little girl.  (On gingham to keep my stitches straight and even.)

I can't say I have worked on a quilt today, but at 3 am when I couldn't sleep I got up and finished sewing some cool lined and zippered little tiny bags for a Christmas gift!

Here are the completed blocks, in two photos:

Eileen.... Haven't you blown us away with your stack and whacks before.  It is truely amazing that all of these different blocks come from that one fabric.  I am going to have to get a book to learn how to do this.

Nana, Thanks I was afarid that some of the fabric wouldn't work ,I tried to stay as close to civil war fabric  as I could without buying any . I was really worried the light blue would not work out ,but I think its gonna be okay ,.When its all made there is a neat pattern to the blocks which does not show up on the picture yet ,Ididn't aline them to make it..Hopefully by this weekend I'll be able to post a better photo of the pattern...Barbara

It always amazes me how many patterns you can get with log cabin blocks.  They are so versatile.  I don't understand why I haven't made any of these......

I really do plan on doing some of these.  It is just one of those things that I always have so many projects going that I just haven't gotten to these....LOL>.   I also like the ones that make a curved log cabin appearance.
