got all 12 blocks sewn last nite but I was only able to get 12.25" on almost all of them, even with scant 1/4" seam.  hope it will be okay! 

anyways, they are done, now I need to make 15 more Red Hearts and finish first border on RR2 plus cut out for MQ8.  Two weeks from today is my surgery so hope to have everything done before it happens.

You've been such a quiet group. How's everyone coming on their blocks? I'm still working on mine. I've started sewing but I am doing it in stages. May not be a smart move but I thought I would give it a try.

I finished my first set and have some of the second set cut but not sewn.

Right now I'm busy with all the beautiful HST's that arrived this week.  Just about ready to figure out placement of the 135 pinwheel blocks with the plain ones for Happy Go Lucky.  I have used one of everyone's sets of four.

I have mine cut out and have been squaring up the units. I will be making mine in groups of 4 so I can work them into my schedule. I do love the block now that I have started  again. Yep messed up the HST color combos. Oh well I will have a few extras to add to my quilt.

There  was a reason I put the late dates on this swap!  ah Hah!  This year is my guild's show.  we do one every other year.  I am just finishing what needs to be ready on Tuesday Nite!  I just need to make a label for my tuffet and put the hanging sleeve on the back of my quilt.  I also had a tough week last week followed by Yom Kippur.  I knew I would need this timing!

I have started cutting out my first set and will be working this week on them.  I really need a retreat to get everything caught up.

I have been working on my set.  I am almost finished with my Eight point star variation. I will have it finished either tomorrow or by Wed.  Then I will start on my second set which is the Ohio Star.  

How is everyone doing?

Very pretty Valerie. The light blue makes the star points really stand out. I have 4 finished and the rest ready to sew in rows. I hope to be done this weekend.

Lovely Valerie!  With getting my machine back tonight, I'll be able to get caught up on my blocks so that they will be ready to shop once Juid gets home!

I have almost all of it cut out. One block is not all together but is on the design wall!

I now have eleven done and as soon as I finish ripping out a seam (sewed it to the wrong side ) I'll be done.  Now on to the red heart swap.
