You will definitely be doing a happy dance once that quilt is finished!  It is beautiful.

Thanks handstitcher. I'm determined to finish it, but I'll have to machine quilt it other wise I'll never get it done!

Happy New Year everyone!

What a lovely quilt it will be, QD! Truly a labor of love. I like your idea of connecting the ribbons in the triangle setting blocks. Keep us posted on your progress. It's nice to see the work in progress instead of waiting until it's complete. 

Happy New Year to all!

I've been looking at all your quilts and blocks - they're beautiful. Handstitcher, your block is amazing and the bible means so much to you & your family. I love the kitty quilt and the old fashioned designs. I have a folder with traditional quilts I'd like to make, but not sure I'll ever get to them.

Janet I remember going through your unstitching nightmare with your quilt and can sympathize with anyone going through that. I've started machine quilting a block swap and forgot how long it's been since I did that. I very well may have to take stitches out but they're my mistake not something I paid a pretty penny to have someone supposedly qualified do it for you.

We're celebrating our 50th anniversary this year so I've vowed to finish the 25th anniversary quilt I've been working on for so long. I've appliqued all t he inside blocks and about 1/2 of the border triangles. I originally designed a very complex design for the triangles but in a moment of sanity, I realized I'd never get it done, so I simplified all of them. The ribbon borders on the blocks will be matched up after the blocks are put together to make the blocks look like one.

handstitcher,,, your fortunate to have 2 bibles.  I feel I am lucky to have the one I do.  My mother was adopted at 8 months, her father passing when she was 15 months old.  This bible is from his family.  My mother knew her cousin, but not well, until she moved out near us when she was 63.  Reconnected with him,, since he had no children, asked my mother if she wanted it.  She knew I would so she said yes.  When I moved to this area in 1980,, I had no idea my ancestors had settled here in the 1830's.  I have a deed for some property they owned and sold to their son, my 2nd gr grandfather.  It is the only piece of property in this township that is not developed.  It is currently a horse farm, and I believe will stay that way.  Unfortunately, it had been sold many years ago.  I don't believe I would be able to afford the taxes on it either!!!

Hope you're feeling better, Annette. The colds, coughs, and fevers have been running rampant at school. This crazy weather of very warm, then cold, then warm again is not killing the germs! 

Thanks for the kind words on my latest block. I haven't started the next one yet, but I have the pattern made. I enlarged a photo from a book of Baltimore quilts and used that to make a pattern. Lynne, I have two Family Bibles on my mom's side and need to update them as well. One is from the ggg grandmother on the quilt block.

Hope everyone is ready for Christmas! School ended yesterday, so baking is on the agenda for today....

I hope you feel better soon Annette.  Being sick is the pits as it is, but over Christmas makes it even worse.

Handstitcher, that is a beautiful block and a great memorial.

Annette, I pray your doctor is wrong in his(her) calculations.

Just wanted to pop in quickly to say Congratulations to all of you who are busily completing quilts or blocks.  I've been knitting socks.  Down for the count with one nasty cold.  It's already been a week and our physician just gave us the news that we weren't likely to be over it until the New Year.  Oh yea!  Seasons Greetings to all of you. Have a safe and joyful holiday season.
