Hi!

 

doing fine- picked the block- just looking for the right blue. Mom's in town for Easter and my 4 year old son is over the moon to have her here to play. :). Happy Easter everyone!

Have the grand daughter until tomorrow evening- were having a blast!  After she goes home tomorrow I will be filling eggs for the hunts on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday we're going to my mother in laws.  Monday  I will start my blocks and they will be done Tuesday or Wednesday. Candis I'll PM you when they are in the mail.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!    TTFN

Having so much fun making my blocks.  I have 6 done.  Two years ago I hosted a patriotic fat quarter swap and got some beautiful fabric.  I have enough left over that I think I'm going to get all of my blocks for this swap out of that left over stash!

Amazingly I've managed to get some work done on mine too!   Doubt I'll be able to get back at them until Monday, but once I can sit down with no distractions I'll be able to get them finished up quickly. 

That's great that you can shop your stash Phyllis!   I went and bought some fabric and then found quite a bit of R,W,B fabrics a couple days later.  No biggie, I know I have fabric for borders and backings already :D

Well, I gotta get the last minute Easter stuff taken care of so all I have to do Saturday evening and Sunday morning is make baked beans and baked mac and cheese. 

Everyone have a great weekend.

Wooo Hooo~ I managed to get all my blocks put together tonight!!  Monday and Tuesday I'll put the finishing touches on and hopefully get them out to Candis by the end of the week.   Heading to shower and then bed- the Easter egg hunt is tomorrow.   Candis I'll let you know when the blocks are on the way to you. Good night.

Wow Erin!! So impressed with you!! Getting blocks done while Cupcake is there, and preparing for Easter!   Bravo Girl!   I actually got all mine cut out, I'm in the process of chain piecing them! I really love the pattern, I will be using it for different colors of blocks. But it makes an awesome patriotic block.   Hope that everyone else who hasn't checked in will take a few seconds to say and how your doing, I'm headin to Georgetown Ca tomorrow, going to go to Melissa's Grand Opening of Her New Quilt Shop! I am so excited for her! She is living my dream!  I will take pics, can't wait to meet her in person and see her shop!

Checking in-  I started embroidering the blocks today but had to run to town to pick up meds, pay some bills and pick up some groceries. They should be finished tomorrow!! :)  I'll PM and let you know when in the mail.

I made my 16 blocks, embroidered 2 and found a design I liked better and then ordered a variegated red, white, blue thread; it should be here soon.  Today I made two more blocks and I am on hold until patriotic thread arrives. The blocks will get to you Candis way before May 15.
