Maggie,

I am just going to laugh it off and remember I am over 50, LOL

 

Quilt, have fun, spend less time worrying if it is perfect.

How lovely.. Christmas colors was a good idea.  Who can't use an extra quilt for the holidays.  Can't wait to see how it comes out!!!

I was counting my HST and realized I am 2 short on the fabric 2/background!  Guess I'll be cutting and sewing 2 more!

Maggie and Nana, thank you for your concern, I'll just have to live with some points not as sharp unless I find more fabric at a shop nearby where I bought it.  I hate to have to make more HST!

Brenda, I like that excuse, do you mind if I use it with my problem?  I'm over 75!  LOL

I have 13 blocks to do the final seam on and then I am ready for the next step. I should finish them after work today. Fortunately I am only doing a lap size with half the blocks or I'd be seriously behind! Looking forward to tomorrow morning.

Nana, more people than not seem to be saying they will fall behind.  Should we take a poll and ask everyone doing MQ 9 if they are ready for the 4th step tomorrow or would another week for step 3 be beneficial to most.?????

I am voting for another week to finish step 3 but I'd go along with the majority.

I agree with you, Pat!  I too am behind.  Can't seem to find the time necessary to get everything sewed, and now not feeling well!  Would be nice for Nana to give us more time, but I will also manage if we get the next step tomorrow!

I am behind, but mostly it's due to my machine being out of commission.  I'll get it back tonight and SHOULD be caught up by the end of the weekend.  But I'm with the others--I wouldn't mind one more week for this step.

Hooray Nana!!!  Sorry ladies, but I have been anxiously waiting to get the next step and started on it.  My calendar is filling up much to quickly and this weekend will be a good time for me to work on the blocks.

Perhaps at the end you can give us an extra week or two before the voting ;-)

I was away all last weekend and again this and work has  been long and stressful. I have most of the hst pressed but most still waiting to be trimmed before I can even think about sewing.  I don't mind the posting of the next step for those who are lucky enough to have sewing time, we will all catch up at the end.

I am definitely falling behind.  Would love to have another week to get these blocks done.  I have way too many irons in the fire!  Just finished quilting a quilt, so that's behind me.  I have these blocks to get done, plus blocks from 2 other quilt alongs!!
