Got mine today in the mail and ooh, Ladies!  ya'll outdid yourselves.  really blown away by all the beautiful blocks, I love the eagle, especially and American and all of them!!  can't wait to get this in a quilt.  Sarah's Choice is coming down off the design wall but won't be able to sew them till I get back from Denver.  

leave Sat morning to see our son and family.  please sent prayers my way as I have been having tightness in my chest and some heart palpitations, difficulty breathing at times (like going up stairs) dr said lungs needed a breathing treatment today plus he prescribed an inhaler.  Never have had this problem before so hopeful the thin Colorado air doesn't aggravate my condition.  sure don't want to be going to ER on vacation.

Debbie take care of yourself and have a fun, safe trip.

Flo- I'm happy to hear your son and his family will be there.

 I've got my blocks up on the design wall and moved them around several times.  Honestly, there's no "bad" layout with these beauties!  I have added a few orphan blocks from other projects so it's bigger.  I need to figure out my sashing (oh no, a trip to the LQS?!?!? LOL)  Once I choose it, I'll be good to go.  I hope to start putting it together on Monday and have it completed by July 4th.  

Have a great weekend!

Piece, Love, Quilt

Well after working all day at my store, I came home and ran like a chicken without a head, but the guest room is clean and ready.  They will be here this evening between 8 pm and midnight.  I can't wait to hug him or smack him...maybe both.

Hi Candis,

I have put more of my blocks with the ones I received in the swap and have a quilt top made for my grandson's 10th birthday, which is tomorrow.  I will post pictures as soon as I get it finished. Might not be tomorrow but I can show him the top if it is not finished. God Bless. Darlene in Indiana

 

God Bless

Forgot to say, I didn't have enough of any fabric for sashing so it will not have sashing as my LQS is a good drive from home and I just didn't have the time to go. So it will just be the blocks sewn together. He will love it any how. He is into patriotic stuff and Eagles.

 

God Bless

It's all about what you like. I'm putting sashings cause I want to make two square quilts, small ones for both my young Grandkids!  By the way I loved your embroidered Eagles, they were a big hit, I am going to add some stars to the muslin,..   I think they are so special, I want to showcase them!   Everyone did great! I can't wait to see your Top.  I'm sure he will love it!!
