Really can't figure out why she made templates and paper piecing patterns for most of them.

Judy, I thought the same thing.  In my mind it made it harder and took more time.  I do not have EQ so I paper pieced the long way.  So it is all good!

 

After reading the first Elm Creek book I think I understand now why she uses so many templates when simple rotary cutting would work. That's how Sylvia made her quilts. All hand pieced using templates.

Hi Frances. I have 70 blocks cutout, bagged and ready to take to the Oregon retreat to work on. I got bored cutting so made up 10 of the blocks.

Oh, wait, you're referring to the book! Well, I've already uploaded the blocks I've made so will leave the pictures in place.

I loved the book. A very pleasant and easy read, yet with just enough of a mystery to keep me turning the pages. I've downloaded the next one, Round Robin, but haven't started reading it yet. There are so many in this series, it will cost me as much to read them as to make a quilt. I'm going to check with my library and see if they are available for download.

Pretty blocks Judy.

I have many of the Elm Creek Books (hard cover and paperback) but I've only read the first three.

Judy,

Your blocks are beautiful, such wonderful work.

I have all the books but a lot of the first ones i brought second hand so i didnt spend a fortune, I like the ones set at Elm creek and i love the one set in Hawaii, im not so keen on Mrs Lincolns dressmaker (still have to finish that one) and normally i finish her books in two days, however this could be because its harder for me to get my head round everything in the civil war, that was not covered when i was at school.

lots of love

Francesxx

I see this group has resurrected.   Maybe it will give me incentive to get mine quilted.

Hi Gini, 

Would you please email me pics of your quilts. I would love to see them. I am new to this virtual quilting thing. I am enjoying these virtual groups though.

Thanks so much.

Jennie,

if you look in "Media" you'll see photos of tops and quilts in progress. I included a link but you can get to it from the group's home page.

Hi Kris,

Yes, I know I've already seen them. Thanks for the response.  I was just interested in seeing other quilts since I've joined several of the different groups.  You all seem to know each other personally.  Those of us new joiners would like to fit into these groups and not feel like outcasts.
