MNnancy:

Judy T-Bellingham:
I surely do hope their marriage lasts long enough for them to enjoy the quilts.
Now that doesn't sound very optimistic.  What makes you think it might not last?  ...

Nancy, I hope the marriage lasts but these days....... And, I'm a realist, this will be his third . Add his step kids into the mix, especially an 8 year old with some mommy issues and it can be difficult. But, if anyone can do it, my step daughter can. The little boy just loves the lap quilt I made for my step-D several years ago so I know he will like one of his own. I'm enjoying this project very much. The boy will get his no matter what. But, if, for some reason, the marriage doesn't happen in June, I'll keep the one I'm making for the groom.

Wendy :

Judy T-Bellingham:
I love EQ7 .......

this is a beautiful design Judy. I had a feeling when I talked to you at retreat that you would get hooked.

Yup, that's exactly what happened.  

Thanks everyone. I finished paper piecing one of the star blocks. I am very pleased with the way it's going together, even though I had to frog it twice. This will be a fairly quick quilt to put together.

By the way, Wendy, did you finish that wonderful quilt you were making for the Joann's contest? I was in awe of the complexity and how easily you seemed to be able to put it together.

ok so my time line was a little off.  I figured last week I would have my pinwheels at least half done, wrong.  I have one more triangle to sew on, (well 92 pieces) then all four quarters will be complete then I can finally put my squares together.  this quilt of valor is going to take longer than I hoped.  But boy will it look good :)

Chicago singer.   Welcome to the group.    What's the worst that can happen?     You get to go fabric shopping again.   What patterns have you chosen?  To combine?

Annie, are you joining us in the appliqué group? This spring.  We will be starting another appliqué quilt, not a Baltimore, but it is similar and will be very pretty.

Thanks Barbara for both threads. Actually all's I'm going to do is add a large border. That way I can still follow the pattern, which is for a novice like me. Yep, I definately feel like I bit off more than I can chew, but I think it'll work. The actuall pattern is for a twin bed, so I'll leave it that way but put the border around it with a little bit of the pattern at the corners. What do you think? Don't worry I'l definately be asking questions and I'll probably post a picture of what it's supposed to look like when I'm done. This way maybe you can add some suggestions for the border 'cause you'll know what it looks like. That is, if you wouldn't mind.

Thanx!

Chicago, that's a lot of border.   You might think about doubling the pattern

Although Amish quilts were big patterns with lots of borders,  check out some books on Amish quilts

Gini, good point! I'm going to post a picture of what it's supposed to look like when done, later today. Then you'll might be able to make suggestions for the border I plan to add to make it bigger. If you don't mind, of course.

Thanx!

OK, I'm in!  This Spring gives me some time to wrap up a few loose ends - haha I even made myself laugh out loud on that one. 

Can't wait!

That hesitancy is normal for a first time.  Just take a deep breathe , relax and jump in.  Once you get this first quilt under your belt you won't be hesitant again.   Just have fun and enjoy the process.  Don't be upset with yourself if there are some mistakes,  The only person that will ever see any mistakes is you.   Have fun and good luck.
