Thea you are one busy lady! Last week I quilted a baba/lap quilt for my great niece to be born. The binding is on. Now I need to wash and dry before I take a picture. I have four days to bind two big queen sized quilts. Then we are on our way to New Brunswick to visit family, stopping in Sudbury, Ottawa, Quebec, and Amqui. Next three weeks will be very busy. So I need to get the cat off my legs and get to work!

Debbie,

That's a neat quilt. Don't think I've ever seen that pattern before. I like the way the borders are pieced.

Angele - compared to all you are doing I am a very lazy lady!  I did start to do some more quilting on my diamond quilt.  I am amazed - I was sitting there and started perspiring... it isn't hot in my room at all but guess it is more physical then I realized so when that happened it was a sign I need to stop - As I am doing the rows diagonally each row is shorter then the row before so I just have 3 more rows to go and this 1/2 of one side will be done - then I go back to the long rows in the middle again that take a whole bobbin to themselves.  I was looking at my thread and may have to order some more thread - I will see how much I have left when I get this side direction done - I don't think I have another spool of this thread...never ran through a whole spool of thread quilting a quilt before.  But if I think I do - pumpkinvinecorner will be getting another order from me.  I need to pick up a few other colors too - a friend saw my latest quilted purse the blue and gray one and asked me to make her one - she wants greens - that is my least favorite color so had to order some fabrics and will have to order some more thread for it - I don't have but a little bit of the dark green spool left - it will probably be enough to do the purse but not for any more of my MR quilts.  

Resting for a while - do not want to push it today... 3rd load of wash in and still have the kitchen floor to do - it didn't get done last Friday so although it doesn't look bad I know it needs to be done... I am hoping that I continue to have energy today.  At least the pain is about 1/10 of yesterday... and I am awake!!!

God Bless the dear soul that "discovered" chain piecing!!!  If I know who she or he was and if they were still among us, I think I would travel hundreds of miles just to plant a big fat one on their cheek! :)   With over 144 blocks, with 15 seams per block, chain piecing is saving my sanity!  LOL!!

Kris, that is just beautiful! I love all the color. I followed your blocks as you posted them to the LUS forum and now I got to see them all together. Fabulous job, as always.

Debbie-do:

If I could do this over I'd use only 12 blocks and make the border much wider or at least replace the cornerstones with border fabric but it is what it is.  For a moment I seriously thought about ripping it down and doing just that but I snapped out of it pretty quickly!

Looks good Debbie.
