I will tell you like I have told Marlene and Kris.   Quit overthinking these blocks.  Any "sampler" style block is perfect.  Churn dash, friendship star, log cabin, Ohio star, square in a square....just anything.  It doesn't have to be a difficult block or anything.  Just need the beachy colors so that everything blends.

It is a peanut butter made by the Peanut Butter Co out of NY.

Last weekend my kids (and families) were home and my oldest daughter brought a new treat.  Premium chocolate and a jar of peanut butter.  break off a piece of chocolate and drag it thought the peanut butter.  No more than a mouthfull at a time.  OMG.  SO good.

Really, I could have made a ton of quilts by the time I spend shopping, thinking, auditioning, and trying sample blocks so VA Beach. Nana is So right. I drove myself and her crazy! Whatever you make we will all love it. Trust me we will.

Just go for it. You can do it.

Don't forget to bring your panels that we got to sew together when we're not sitting at the Master Quilters feet and learning from them.

Can't wait to meet you and your Mom.

Hugs

Marlene

Darlene:
I better find someone to stand over me with a whip and make me put my nose to the sewing machine.Already the quilt police have been here and I am not allowed to make anymore quilt tops until I do some binding.Is it normal to have more than 15 quilts that need binding? I HATE binding .Why can't people just love them without binding lol.

Darlene,

we are in the same boat. I really hate doing bindings. I have MQ 5 quilted and awaiting binding. It will be a long wait.

I haven't come up with a pattern for the retreat blocks so it looks like I need some "motivation" as well.

I found a new snack sensation.  It is a peanut butter made by the Peanut Butter Co out of NY.  It is a peanut butter blended with white chocolate.  Creamy smooth and really yummy.

Nana,

this sounds so good. If only...

Hi everyone,

Thought I would share a couple of pics of oranges from my dwarf orange tree. These are a hoot. They're the biggest oranges we've gotten from the trees. I measured them- Almost 5 inches in height and 14 inches in circumference. Wow those are some oranges. They're navels. Yes, they're really oranges. : )  I put a small rock next to the oranges so you could see them in comparison.  Enjoy! Marlene
