EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Melody, you go girl. Long as we get a peek at the finished product. You can always catch up later. It is taking me two months to get one month block done.
Melody, thanks for the update, can't wait to see it .barbara
I love the blocks in the Borderland Butternut and Blue book. But, if I had one issue it would be that she doesn't give square up dimensions. Most patterns do give dimensions of each section of a block. I guess she figures we should be sewing correct seams and not have issues with weird sizes?
Not a complaint, more a comment as I'm really enjoying this project.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Judy, could just be my sewing seam allowences but the two I have finished so far have been about 14-1/4 ". If they say the finished size of the block is 14" then I guess you square them to 14" I thought they said the finished size of the block. Kinda have been taking quilting holiday right now. But, I will be back at it Tues. I hope. I know I won't feel like it tomorrow after Church. Unless I could do this colonoscopy prep and put my sewing machine on a TV table in front of the toilet. Hmmmm....how to get to the ironing board.? ; 0

You need to square them to 14-1/2". 14" finished means after you've joined all the 14-1/2" blocks together. I seem to always be about 1/4" short no matter what I do.
I will have to check this out JUdy as I have not squared mine up yet. So far really haven't had to . but I 'm gald yo mentioned this . Thanks
Sukochi and Barbara, I have not forgotton about your blocks. The last couple of months have been rough months and I just haven't gone into the sewing room. We had to put my husbands dog to sleep today as he was so sick he could not even stand up. The vet could not give us any real answers or hope that he would survive and we could not watch him suffer anymore. This is just one month and two days after my dog died. My goal ist to get back into the sewing room this week. i am sorry that it is taking me so long to get these block to you but they are coming.
Oh, Margaret, this is just heart breaking. When we lose our furry family members it just cuts our heart. I am so sorry. Don't worry about this. Your healing from this pain is more important. Thanks for telling me.
Margaret, that is so sad , I'm good ,you just get to it when you can, Life happens . and I know it will be done ..
