● ● ● Everyone should have had a chance to at least look at and pet their squares by now. What do you think? I've got two ideas in my head and not sure which one to go with yet. But, I do promise to finish this one and last years before the deadline.

I know Gonesewin is practically done already, but I would like to know how the rest of you are doing. Do you have a design picked yet? Have you started cutting? I'm still playing with the colors. Hoping that will help me figure out which one I want to use.


● Please post all new replies on this thread.

Progress?!
looked at blocks
played with them
sorted 3Xs
cut 1
put aside to finish a graduation and a wedding quilt that needs to been completed by 6/2 and 6/21.
Then the fun begins.


Sew, sew, and sew some more that's my motto!

I've played with mine and have 50% of my plan done, but have other sewing commitments (mug rug, row exchange, May BOM, etc.) first, and trying to finish fencing and sprinklers before summer hits.

I just got mine on Friday. I've looked. I have two ideas. No sense yet which way to go.

A new blade is a great start. Maybe I should try that!

I have to go to the main HGTV site to get here now and I can't always log in. I have a good idea of what I want to do but won't start till mid June when we get back from Yellowstone. Next two weeks are end of school madness, getting a swap done and Sunshine Quilter blocks.

I have sorted my squares many times, I do not have a plan yet. The last few weeks have been busy since I have decided to retire and my last day at work is May 30th. I should be able to get to it after that.

I have a plan and hope to execute it soon. I've been sick and traveling. Bad combination. But now I am ready to get back to sewing.

I have a pattern; I have sorted squares into units and they are ready to cut. I won't get back to them until July as we will be traveling for much of June.

● ● ● Been plugging away on my little quilt. I had hoped to share a bunch of peeks, but it seems there aren't as many here as I thought. Frown

Oh well, I will share what I have. Peek Number Two...

● ● ● How is everyone doing? It's going to be another week before I can get started. Forgot about the next wedding coming up next weekend. I'll be busy making another set of placemats. I'll probably start on the next set right away too, just to to get it out of the way. THEN I'll be able to play with this. {phew}

Today's peek - someone started cutting ...

I've gotten a little quilting done on mine but I've put it away for a little while to get some other projects finished.

I also don't remember that fabric. I like it. I must remember to look for it.

● ● ● The reason you don't remember it is because, it is probably one of her BONUS SQUARES, or it could be part of a FQ.

It's funny that you should comment on a specific fabric. I was thinking of a new peek idea just the other day. My thought was to see what each of you has done with a specific fabric. Are you game? Send me a peek by Friday of the fabric pictured below. I will post the peeks over the weekend and each peek will get a BONUS pair of BONUS SQUARES.

Nice to see peeks.

Like you're new peek idea Jean. Unfortunately, other then the first look, haven't seen my squares since. Don't even have a plan.

Hectic time of the year, so much going on. Haven't done any quilting in a month. sigh...

I have a plan, actually I an working on the second plan. First one was not working. Good thing I was trying it out on my own fabric first. Second plan is working and I have most of the fabric cut and started sewing. By the way so far I love retirement.

● ● ● Hello Ladies, we have some pretty exciting peeks for you this weekend. Big Grin There is still time to get your peeks in. Right now, I only have about 12 with the current fabric, thank you. So get sewing and send yours in. I'm extending the BONUS through Sunday.

Our first peek is actually two. I was going to make a joke about this one because we have an expert yo-yo maker in our mist, but there are two of you who are tackling these beauties. I wonder how similar their quilts will be.

Yoyo's are cool. My buds and I saw demos of them being done with yoyo makers on our quilt shop hop. Nice peeks!

Keep them coming, Jean!

Only way I can do that is if you send in more peeks. Wink

Now here is a cool one. I especially like that she didn't chop off the big black dot. I completely forgot about that technique.

That is a cool technique. I also like how she centered the red dots to curve-adds great movement to the circle
