I am new to Ohio Quilters. Just wondering why the blog posts are so old? (2011). Do you all not blog, and just comment?

Very pretty Sherri. I finished one of the four applique borders and started the second. Almost have all of the flowers done and then will start the tons of leaves. I stopped yesterday to read an advance copy of a book from one of my favorite historical authors. Will have company for lunch today and then back to my applique.

How cute that is, Sherri! A cuppa Valentines!

Got hooked on mini quilts here lately .  Played around with this one yesterday.. And tarted another today.  But I still need to sandwich the last top and quilt that, so I shouldn't be making other projects until that is finished.   So little time and so many quilts to do....

Perfect for either (imho) Sherri! LOL

My reaction to the latest Trump Tweet OR my 55th anniversary today with the same man.  You be the judge.

Hope you all stayed warm today.  I did not venture out.  And tomorrow is going to be worse.  The city cancelled garbage collection for tomorrow.  BRRRR.  So I spent the day at my sewing machine. Working on a blue and gray project.. I used string pieced sassing units, and had planned to use some 2 1/2 " 4 patch squares as the corner squares that were leader-ender blocks,  but I didn't like the look after sewing them in two sashing rows. So ripped them out and cut solid color squares. And while searching for the right fabric for those I ran across fabric I had forgotten I bought.   That is always a nice surprise.

Sheila, I couldn't picture your instructions in my mind. I was thinking that I'd have to mark six places on the circle and then stitch. I googled how to make hexies from circles and was amazed how simple it is. I guess you simply stitch them together the same way as if there was paper. I'll have to try your method and make something small because they seem like they would be much faster than using paper. Of course I will have to do that after my other projects. LOL.

Marianne, I haven't seen that block. There are a couple of blocks called arrow head.

Hi girls, I have just finished my 6th block, it's called arrow head block, I got the pattern off crafts, has anyone done this block, it's looking nice, if now ran out of same material, so will look for something to compliment it.  I really would like two quilts for the 2 single beds in the guest room.

You girls amaze me with all that you do.  Paper piecing ...I just can't imagine doing an entire quilt that way!  I tried it once---spent an entire day fooling around with it.  It was horrible!  Too much work for the results and I just think that plain old piecing is so much easier and even looks better! My hat is off to you all for doing it!

They usually end up as abt a 1 inch hexie. I can get 6 out of a 10 inch square  of fabric, too.
