Oh Judy, Your HP quilt is wonderful!  REally like the bookshelf effect.  I had thought about doing something like that but I am a long way from that juncture.  I  am still fiddling with  HP's glasses.  My floor looks like a snowstorm  has gone through.  I'm hoping to get that block finished tonight and maybe several others done this weekend and then I will caught up.  With this project at least.

Thanks Pat.  I have all 30 blocks done and sewn together and the bookcase done. I put Harry's broom leaning against the side of the bookshelf. Now I'm working on the other side with a second scabbers crawling up the side. Well, hopefully he will be crawling up the side. I'm having a terrible time with the modifications I had to do. He may be like the crooked little man who walked a crooked mile with a crooked cat and a little crooked dog. Only this is a mouse. LOL.

With all the tearing of hair I may end up BALD by the time I have it right. George walked in my room and said "Why is the air blue?"

Poor Judy! 

I hope Scabbers #2 starts to behave himself and stops giving you so much trouble.  I can hardly wait to see the finished quilt! It's going to be wonderful!

Judy,

I'm confident you'll get it all worked out in the end. Looking forward to it.

Scabbers #2 is done and in place running up the side of the bookcase. I made him TWICE. The second time I called it good and sewed him into the border. Used a decor stitch for the tail. Stood back and cussed up a storm. I had messed up him body and the tail looks like, well you know. 

I have to decide if I want to have a third go at this rotten little mouse or just leave him as he is. 

Tomorrow I will take it into the quilt shop to find backing. I was going to use the dark star fabric but decided against it.  Thursday I go out to my son's sign company to use his huge layout table and layer it.  The quilting itself will wait. I'm terrified of that step.

Barbara, I only have the first 3 blocks done and I'm not even sure I'll have time to work on them for several more weeks. By then my DS will be out of school so we'll have fun working on them then.

Barbara,

there's still a few of us who haven't gotten more than three or four blocks done. We'll bring up the rear together.

I'll wait for you!    I got waylaid working on a different project that is taking up all my sewing table space (and then some!) I've had to lay my PoD stack on the bookshelf out of the way until I finish this quilt. Then back to Harry! Maybe by tomorrow evening...I'm down to the binding.

Judy,

Are you still chasing rats?  Poor ole Scabbers is going to be worn out!   Were you able to find a different backing material at the LQS?

I think I found the material I'm going to use for the bookcase. I liked it in the store, but didn't have any of the blocks with me.  Pinned it up on the design board and I'm thinking it will be good.  There are still so many blocks to go, I took it down and put it away for now. DH  was saying it looked kinda plain, so I explained it wouldn't look like it does now when I'm finished.  Sure hope I didn't lie to him!!

On to the next block!

I'm allowing Scabbers to rest where he is. I have one on the book block and another going up the side of the bookcase. I'm not happy with that one but he's there to stay. I did find fabric for the backing. It's 109" wide so it will be just one piece. I kind of wanted to do a pieced backing but because of all the seams in the top I decided against that. It's going to be a bear to quilt as it is.

I may re-do the border to try to make it lay flatter. Plus I want to check everything carefully before sandwiching it. I've already found two places where I didn't take a big enough seam and the fabric has frayed out. I want to get all those things fixed.

This is the fabric for the backing.
