WOW, MaggieNae, your quilt is gorgeous!  Your cousin is a lucky person to be getting it and I'm sure it will be cherished.

Yes, I worked on quilt blocks today - very frustrating...

My Janome does not like my R/A polyester thread but it is the spool I had - so the satin stitching on each of my house blocks is taking a little over an hour...

I have changed needles 3 times now... changed and rechanged the tensions ... used 1 then 2 now 3 pieces of applique paper behind the piece to try and get the top thread from making bird's nests on the back and from breaking every minute... I have done all the things I can think of except get out the Pfaff and see if it would do better... DH is not home and lifting that machine would have been detrimental to my back today... so the blocks look really pretty on the front side - the retreat members just need to not look at the backside... I have tried though... I could have quit and found a really simple block to just piece - but NO - dummy here - has 5 windows a door and the roof with chimney to satin stitch... never have had this much trouble before though - maybe I need to try freezing the thread...lol

They do look pretty on the front side... good thing they are going in a quilt...lol

What a great quilt, Pam!  I love that we can zoom in on the pictures here and get a close up look at the stitching.

gini:

 there is a magazine Quilting Arts, that gives great lessons each magazine on different art techniques.

start with something simple and jump right in.

Donna, Quilting Arts has a bunch of free resources on their web site!

MaggieNae this is a very interesting quilt.  I just can't wait to see it done!  It already looks quite big.  So are you going to quilt it yourself? From what I get you designed the quilt based on the picture on the connecting threads catalog.  Wow, great job!

Donna, I too would love to try an artistic quilt, but I am really nervous about starting.  I need to read more on it.  I would love to take a class or meet with someone with some experience.

Thea, I have to say you are determined to complete them all.  Some days ...or nights in your case, you just need to walk away from the block.  I hope tomorrow your machine will behave and be more cooperative. Quilty hugs to you.

Today's project.... I decided that I needed a new table runner and place mats...  I have only made about 6 sets.  So I took out my favorite pattern the "Spicy Spiral Table runner".  Found some beautiful fabric out of my collection that I bought a few months ago for this purpose.  The place mats are my own design based on the flow of the spiral table runner.  I think the fabric is beautiful.

The runner:

and the place mats of my own design:

And now it is time to get ready for bed since I have to be up at 4 am and at Cracker Barrel at 5 to cook for 10 hours.  Probably no quilting tomorrow.
