Dara Beth -- love your colour choices, especially the double star.  I would never had thought of putting bright green with pink, but wow!  does it just go together so well and jump out at you.  Really wonderful.

Thank you Ladies (Marie, Bonita, Belfrybat, Kris, & Max)!   I'm finally beginning to like my quilt.  I still think that there are many more that I like better, but it is growing on me.  :-)   I think the sashing will bring it together.  It is hard to believe that there are only a couple of more months to go and then we start putting it together. 

I really want to get back to my paper piecing projects (compass blocks & Harry Potter).  The poor things are really feeling neglected.  I have, however, managed to get a couple more of our cross stitch quilts completed.  Wooo Hoooo!! Here they are:

Those are lovely.  Did you use counted cross stitch in the blocks?

Dara Beth:

 

 

Dara Beth - your blocks are very stunning - I love the unusual fabrics that you have chosen to put together - very scrappy and they go together well...

Yes, I am using all the same fabric line - just different colors - bought 3 yards of each of these fabrics a few years ago and I am trying hard to reduce my stash so they will be used in this quilt and what is left will be sewn together in squares for the backing...

Thanks Belfrybat!  I did two of the blocks. The rest were done by other ladies that I work with.  Our group makes baby quilts for people having new babies in our office. We have around 85 people of all ages and a lot of them are in their 20's. There have been lots of babies lately.  The green one we gave to the mother-to-be this afternoon.  The other one will be presented next week.  The green one was actually the first one we have managed to get done before the baby arrived.   WoooHoooo!!  Quite often with the guys, we don't here about it until the due date is very near.  We've managed to clear some of our back log.  We have only 3 baby quilts left to do.  We have our fingers crossed that there aren't any more babies for a while. We are also working on 2 retirement quilts.  Those are reserved for members of our cross stitch quilt group.

Thanks Thea.  I've been trying to use up some of my scraps and keep to the pink background with miscellaneous greens with just a bit of yellow here and there.

Lots of quilty get well hugs, hug, hug, hug heading your way!

Thanks, Dara!  Healing thoughts are always appreciated!

Dara Beth:
The EPP was a surprise to me.  I expected to hate it and found instead that I really enjoyed it.

I found the same thing.  It's still not my favorite way to piece, as I am an "instant results" type of girl, but it is really nice to have as a project during chemo treatments and family get togethers and such.  I like to keep my hands busy while visiting, especially since I can't be in the sun these days and a lot of the family is into outdoor games.  There's still always someone for me to visit with, though, and it's nice to get some one-on-one time with these relatives.

I may not make the deadline for my August blocks.  Ben's side of the immediate family is coming over on Tuesday for Ben's birthday so I plan on using most of my time I can stay awake cleaning.  I'll be really happy once it's done, though.  And the cleaning includes my studio, which really needs it.  It will be nice to work in it once it's tidied up a bit.  I do so love my little studio/office!  And I know it's possible to have it clean, as I have the proof below.  (I do have about 3 or 4 more tubs of quilting fabric now, though, so organizing and getting that put away has been interesting!)  You have to admit that only tub of quilting fabric under the cutting table looked *very* lonely.  Now I have 2 rolling carts, and part of my shelving cleaned out for fabric storage.  I may still have to purge some other items so I have more room for fabric stashing.  These pics are from a few years ago and I now have a *lot* more stuff that needs to fit in this room.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I still love all of the blocks I am seeing - keep them coming, they are all so beautiful!

ok. well I haven't a clue where my mind went....  LaLa Land I guess. :-)    Here is the text that was supposed to go with the 'reply' above....  Sheeeessse!  

Claudette, you've got a great studio!  Lots of space but I know what you mean about always trying to get more 'stuff' into the same space.  It is what I do all the time with my sewing room.  I love what you did with your wall space, especially the pegboard.  I've been wanting to put some up in my room too.  Just haven't gotten it done yet.  I've got a little over 2 feet of perpendicular wall space right next to a doorway that would be great for the pegboard.  I'm thinking that it would be a good place to hang my stencils, rulers, etc. as they would not jut out into the walkway.  Now to get it done... ;o) 

I've been trying to clean up my room by finishing off a few projects.  I've gotten 2 baby quilts, and a bed runner finished, but I've still got to get the binding on my mystery quilt 6. I've also got a table topper for my DD to quilt and bind, not to mention my other BOM paper-piecing project, my Harry Potter Project of Doom and my 'Scrap Happy' quilt.  So many things I want to do and not enough time....  Working sure does get in the way of my fun, but it pays the bills. Ha Ha Ha.

I'm so glad that you are getting out and able to visit with the relatives.  I'm sure they appreciate having someone to just sit and talk with. 

Don't work too hard on the cleaning.  Quilty Hugs!!!
