I'll catch up later on the posts.  Have been under the weather this week, so haven't been doing much.  But I have finished the flimsy for the MSQC Iron Quilter challenge.  Am thinking about changing out the HST in the corners and putting in a four patch so they'd run completely around the quilt.  My aim is to have this baby finished by next weekend so I can upload the pic to their site.   Any thoughts on the corners?

I think if you put one small square in the center of your corner HSTs, it would more closely echo your bigger blocks.  Maybe you could enlarge that corner block to intrude right into the inner border.

Brigit-Carol, what a beautiful quilt. I'm really not sure about a four patch in the corners. I agree with Nancy that a plain block may be better.

Very pretty Brigit-Carol. Good luck in the contest. I didn't want to make a quilt but I did want the charm packs for the nice discount. I'm sure I'll do something with them at some time.

Birgitta- carol.  There is nothing wrong with corners the way they are now, and done is good.   Putting that dark blue as the outside corner might look more borderish, but I wouldn't take it out to change it.

I got one of my Christmas gifts quilted today along with sewing the binding on.  Now just have to tack it down.  I also finish sewing a scrappy quilt rows together.  I am now planning the borders and binding.  I did try to get another quilt ready for my long arm machine but found my batting is not wide enough so I am going to have to stop by the store tomorrow and buy a king size backing.  It was a great day of quilting.

Gini...spell check!?!... Take all the fun out of life?  

I had a good weekend.  We'll... Except for the sleepover at the hospital.. At 2 in the morning..  Had my gall bladder wake up and made its presence known. Yea!!  Could have done without that but better living with morphine. Going to Mexico next week and my DH is on pins and needles waiting for another attack. Good place for him.

Vivian, 

I had issues with my gallbladder the other day when I ate onion rings. I have found ( and I am not giving medical advice) for myself using soya lecithin takes are of the issue. You know your situation best, I am only passing on what I found helpful.

I am avoiding fried foods, meat ( except for white fish) dairy, butter, margarine and all salad dressings. I am going to Mexico next week and I don't have time to be sick.  I can have surgery  another time.  I will NOT give up wine ... Yet.

Yep, Vivian, exactly what I did years ago. Ended up in the hospital in Reno with a severe Gall Bladder attack. (childbirth was worse but not by much). They pumped me full of pain meds and put me on a plane home. We had plans to go river rafting a couple weeks later and I wasn't going to miss that. So I went on a pretty bland diet and had the surgery later. Worked fine. But let me tell you, my hubby was a nervous wreck on that rafting trip.

The thing that set off my last gall bladder attack, when they finally figured it out, was 2 potato chips.  Just two.  That was the worst episode.  I did not have surgery then for a couple weeks, but managed to control my diet well enough to last until then without another episode.
