Wrenegade - Is it possible to do one in shabby chic fabrics?
... Sure. Whatever fabric appeals to you.
Anael7621 – won the Elm Creek Quilts Pin!
... CONGRATS! I stopped sending in pictures to that forum last year. Just got so far behind in sending them in.
Char and Pegsami - glad you're both still working on this project. It is a long one!
I got the pin, it's a beauty!
Finally made one block! I told myself not to start another project till I finished all Sylvia blocks!
Anael, nice colors in the block.
Mine is still sitting pinned waiting for cooler weather to start quilting it.
HELP! Can someone scan J4 (Maple Leaf) pp pattern and send to me. I lent a friend my book and she can't find it! I have a project that I want to make that leaf for. Appreciate it. Let me know and I'll pm you my email. THANKS.
If you're still needing this, I can help.
Thanks for the offer, but I worked around it.
Took a picture of my block, scanned, re-sized, printed and traced off a couple pp patterns to use. How's that for getting what you want when you want it .. not something I like taking time to do - but the job is done.
Good, sorry I didn't catch this earlier...if your book stays missing, I have a folder with the files saved already. Not positive they'll work perfectly for paper piecing, but should be good as any scan would be.
Wow! I'm blown away!! The blocks are knock down gorgeous!!
I like Chars suggestion of making up kits. Then you don't have everything spread out everywhere like I tend to do!
I'm planning on starting my blocks this winter. Probably machine. To hand piece is beyond me! I really don't know if I'm capable of making these complicted blocks, although I can needle turn applique and rather like it.
You ladies have really outdone yourselves. I had planned on making mine with reproduction prints. But after seeing all the beautiful colors-I like scrappy too!
It is nice to see this thread surface again. Some of those blocks are crazy, crazy to do. I look back and say, whew, did I do that? Some I also chose not to do. Mine is an abbreviated version as I was pretty selective about the blocks I did. Never the less, it was a challenge and I'm glad that I did what I did, and was equally glad to be done with it.
Elaine, I didn't see your post. I'm glad you managed to work around it. If you need anything else, just PM me.
It has been so long since I worked on this, I don't even know what I have done. Will have to check to see what I have done.
I finally made a block! Here it is.
That's beautiful, love the colors. How many do you have left - can't be many..
Thanks Elaine! I don't know how many I've left, I have to count them. Will do that later today, I would love to know myself too
Anael~ you make such GORGEOUS blocks!!!
Thank you Char
So fun to watch everyone's progress on this! I love the pictures beautiful work! I have the book and have a wonderful FQ selection for the blocks I just don't have the b/g...
I just found a sale on what I have been looking for...can someone please post the yardage for the B/G fabric? thank you in advance....

The book says 10 yards - including 2-1/2 yards for sashing and the inner border
I made two blocks today but I'm having problems with Paint so I have to post them in 2 separate posts!
and here;s the second block. It looks a bit weird but once in the quilt it will be ok!
I made two more today. Just counted, 20 to go. So the end is near
Here's the first
and the second
Anael, your blocks are very pretty. Your quilt is going to be beautiful. I have a quilt top I'm putting together and then I hope I can get back to some of these blocks. I think I'm a little over half finished and I have some cut and ready to sew.

Thank you Meme! I do have lots of other projects too and tempted to start new ones. But today I made the decision to finish the Sylvia blocks first before I can start a new project. I do have some of the more difficult blocks left and I found out I hate needle turn applique so I think I'm going to use fusable stuff and machine applique. It's a sampler, isn't it? So I can use several techniques
Anael, those are beautiful blocks.
Meme quilts, half done is pretty good. Don't forgot to post your blocks for our enjoyment.
This is the latest block. Even with foundation piecing it was hard to match all the seams, I didn't succeed But I'm ok with it.
Oh well this one needs a lot of adjusting but I'm ok with it.
Anael - wow - those blocks are beautiful. Can't wait to see this quilt top.
So you're down to 18 to go! Getting there.
Wow, very pretty blocks. You sure have been busy on these.
Today I made the Dresden Plate. I never did that block before and I was a bit scared but I think it turned out ok.
I'm hoping to finish my Sylvia blocks soon, I'm working on it
And the next one: Jack in the Pulpit. 14 to go
Some of them I don't like, some of them are applique which I don't like either!
And the next one. I could have done a better job on this one but I'm not doing it again. Once in the quilt no one will notice
This is Spinning Hourglass
just beautiful, Anael!!! You are definately on the home stretch.
Took the handpiecing class at COF, that should help me with mine....which is barely begun.
Thanks Karen! Good luck with your blocks, please show us what you've done! I love to see pictures
Your blocks are just beautiful. Waiting to see all those beautiful colors in the final quilt.
Thanks Elaine! I'm waiting too
Still don't know what colour sashing/borders!
Did I tell you my DDIL is pregnant again? Last Monday they found out they're going to have triplets!!!! So I'm busy
These are 2 sheets I made yesterday.
Adorable! You might want to post them separately from this thread so others will see them. Don't know how many look into this topic.
How's Sylvia doing? Still haven't picked up mine to start quilting. So many other items in the 'to do' line first.
Sylvia is doing fine, no blocks added though. I didn't have time to make some. I will try next week to work on the blocks!
Finally I made a block! Here it is.
Nice block!!! One of these days I will get back to working on this. If I ever get it all put together, that would be one more mess cleaned up in my quilt studio.
In order to see the rainbow, first you must endure the rain.
Anael another beautiful block. Glad to see you are plugging away at it. It's quite an undertaking.
Thanks Elaine and yes, it is! I'm down to 13 to go but they're the ones with lots of work. The applique ones and I don't like needle turn so I think I might fuse them, still not sure. And a few with lots of parts and no foundation piecing. Oh well, let's just say it's good for practicing my piecing skills
Just happened to see this thread. Beautiful work all of you. I have this book, I bought it because I liked the picture on front. Now seeing all your pictures makes me want to do it.
It's a lot of work PatriciaAnne but it's really worth it. I learned a lot making these blocks. If you decide to start, please share your pictures with us, we love to see them!
I joined an online BOW group of Lynda DeTray but we're almost finished. I don't know if she's starting another group.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Anael7621,
Yes, I made a block
Great fabric and block.
I've thought of pulling out the quilt to start doing the SID by hand - but it's just been a thought so far.
Anyone else find time to work on their project?
I love seeing these blocks. Maybe I need motivation....lol
And it is winter, time to quilt!
Another one, this will be it for now!
I had a hard time matching all the seams and points and it doesn't always match but I'm very happy this one is done!
more beauties Anael!!
