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.

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.

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 Big Grin

This is the latest block. Even with foundation piecing it was hard to match all the seams, I didn't succeed Frown But I'm ok with it.

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 Big Grin

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.

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.

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 Frown and no foundation piecing. Oh well, let's just say it's good for practicing my piecing skills Big Grin

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.

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?
