Traci, love what you have "correctly" done so far. Love the Sweet and Sour collection you are using!
Comment by Traci on August 2, 2010 at 6:26am
Gayle, yeah, I know, that's why I say Don't Do this! LOL!! My seam ripper really got a workout on that first block! I got it fixed and the corrected block is the last one.
Comment by Traci on August 1, 2010 at 5:26pm
I got the last 2 blocks mixed up! Sorry!
Comment by Traci on August 1, 2010 at 5:26pm
Ok ladies, here are some of my pix of the Rocky Mountain Sampler: This is block 1, DON"T DO THIS!!


Here is the completed (corrected) block 1:



Here is Block 2: no mishaps!


SO just take your time and read the directions! I can't wait for this to be completed!

I'll cheer you all on as you work on Rocky Mountain.
Comment by Gayle/La. on July 31, 2010 at 9:54pm
I want to do that Rocky Mountain also and I have to wait til after the 3rd and I get my S.S. check and pay bills and see what I will have left. Froggie I guess we could take off on this project by ourselves, you know without a fearless leader, and see how far we can get. You do yours in dark colors and I can do mine in the patriotic since that is what is all over my cutting table already. Barbi which color do you want to use? Since Traci is already started hers she could be our fearless leader and we will just follow behind her. If we run into anything we can't handle we could go straight to the big chief, Paula Stoddard herself for clarification.

Barbi - I know I've got a basket full, just waiting for the $$ to catch up! I will try to post my first block this weekend and start on the next one. My sewing time is in starts and stops (like most everyones I guess), but after we get DD settled into college, stop selling avon, then I'll have a bit more time. I almost have the top done on my christmas tree skirt, then I can put that in a pile of "to be quilted".
Comment by Barbi on July 30, 2010 at 7:17am
I haven't checked in here for awhile...Traci - you got me hooked on the Rocky Mountain pattern...I just had to order it...tehe. That and a bunch of other stuff I've been putting off. Gotta get that free shipping ya know.

I've got the first block done, I'm doing mine in the sweet & sour line. I need to get cracking on the rest of them. I got distracted by my Christmas tree skirt kit that my daughter got for me last year. I hope to at least get the top done by the end of this month!
