It's been awhile since any postings and found that Thread #11 was closed.

How's everyone doing?

I finally picked mine up again.
- All blocks done! Big Grin
- Only two seams to do on the row sashings
- The two side borders to put on

Feels good. Didn't make the Dec 11 goal, but way further then I thought I would be at this point.

OMG! I see it's been 2 years since I did any work on these blocks. Looks like I'll have to drag it out and get cracking on it again. I do plan to finish it.......eventually!

I'm not sure what those numbers mean. I know I have more than 9 done, but don't think I have 47 finished. Guess I'll have to do a recount once I have it out.

I didn't know the other thread was closed. Thanks for starting a new one Elaine!

Congrats on finishing! I'm looking forward to pictures of your quilt! On my side there's not that much progress, I'm working on too many projects now. So it looks like I'm only doing the BOW for a while but that's ok with me.

YAHOO!!! top is done!!! pressed and waiting for a friend to help me sandwich it. We're going to have a sandwiching day using large tables at the chu*ch in a week or so.

Will try to move furniture around soon to get a picture of it. My bed is too small to spread it out - so it will have to be the living room floor.

here she is!!! Sometime int he next couple weeks I'll get it sandwiched and start the hand quilting - so won't be posting anything on the quilt probably for a year.

Will keep looking for progress on your quilts.

Anael, your blocks are lovely.

Elaine!!! It is gorgeous!

I did a wall hanging; perhaps I will go back and try for the entire quilt. Smile I really did enjoy making all the different blocks.

Okay, Elaine, I forgot to ask the important question. How long did it take you to make this quilt top? I've never in my life even tried to hand sew a block, much less one with -- what? -- a 140 blocks or so? I bow to your genius!!!!!!

I did a few blocks in Dec 2009, the rest were done of the last 2 years. Worked on it off and on over the winter months, took some camping to work on, a lot of blocks and the sashing were done last year while sitting at the doctors office or in the hospital with my DH. So it has special meaning for me.

Elaine, would you please post pics of your quilting in progress? Please??? I would love to see what you're doing and how you're doing it!

I just counted my blocks, I have 93 now ! ! ! I didn't realize I had this many!

Congrats on 93 done! More than half way there.

We'll see on the quilting. I'm not a hand quilter and haven't decided exactly what I'm going to do other then the sid around all sashing - um each block ? - sid or echo. ? um..

Edited - think I'll probably pick one piece of each block and do echo inside that part of the design with coordinating color. Although some blocks the pieces are so small, don't know if that will work. Going to be a long process.

Elaine, I am at a loss for the right adjective for your quilt, so I'll just say ditto to all the other remarks.

Thanks ladies Big Grin

@stillsuzzz: thanks for asking but no, I don't need any more. I have some and I don't want to make the quilt with a lot of horses!

Many quilts? I hope so but only one Sylvia! Dear Jane will take a while, I made about 60 blocks so far.
