I've been working on PP-2007 today and finished 3 blocks. It's so relaxing! 

I'm new by the way, this is my first post.

Have you ever started a quilt pattern and ask yourself "What was I thinking?"

i am working on one that has a block with Santa with bag and presents. There must be over 50 little pieces I have to cut out! 

When you have something like this would it be better do just sew this by hand and cut as I go or on sewing machine?

Hi If you're looking for natural, then what you want is Milky Spore in your yard to kill Japanese beetle grubs. It's a spore that kills the grubs and inert to everything else.  One treatment lasts 25 years. Follow the directions to spread it and the spores take about 2 years to spread into all your soil. I put milky spore on my yard 5 yrs ago and I have no more problems with the grubs destroying my lawn. 

You can buy milky spore at any garden supply or box store. It's expensive but it lasts more than 2 decades.

only all of the time.

is this an applique pattern?   how is the quilt  going to be used. is it a wall hanging or bed quilt?   will it be washed a lot?    hand or machine applique will hold up the best,  but if it is a wall hanging, you can get by with fusibles or raw edge applique.   it all depends on use.   personally i do everything turning under the  edges of the applique pieces, but  if they are a bunch of really fiddly small pieces, you may want to choose another method.

Hi Gini, It sounds like a appliqué project doesn't it? It is a Christmas Star Quilt from P3 Designs. After cutting all of these pieces out I will have a feel of what a appliqué project will be like. Look at this cutting page. I will be bent over for hours!

That is what I did for the reindeer block I started yesterday. Went from A to R and I thought that was a lot until I got to the next block. I need to get some of those dots that you use for garage sales. I don't think I have enough straight pins for all of these. hee hee

oh, no, dots fall off.  can you imagine if you got them all labled and it got humid and all your little dots fluttered off.

Didn't think of that!  If that had happened I would just pack it up and send it on its merry way, like to Idaho!!

I will finish it someday but maybe not this year, too many other things I need to do and this was just for fun or so I thought.
