Hi Debra!   A fellow Hoosier! :)  I've not been to that camp but my mom and aunt go once, sometimes twice a year.  I went once to visit for the day and all the ladies looked extremely happy!  They have a local quilt shop that sets up a mini quilt shop and it's open all day and night.  When you show up they have someone take all or your stuff in and take your sewing stuff to the sewing room for you.  3 meals a day, drinks all day, nature walks, horses to ride, and sewing till your hearts desire.

Hi, regarding the Hawaiian blocks.  About 15 years ago I bought a series of Hawaiian block patterns from Poakalani in Hawaii.  I had wanted to make a queen size quilt cover, but between my job and other stuff I put it in the back burner.  Now that I am fully retired, I took the patterns out and selected about 16 blocks for the quilt.  She has a website www.poakalani.net and she's also on Facebook.  Last year she featured patterns for the 50 states which I downloaded for free. 

I just checked her website and she now sells the patterns individually.  If you're interested I can send you a couple of the simple blocks along with the instructions.  My personal e-mail is acastro_jacq@comcast.net, send me a message and I will reply with the patterns.

Regards - Aida

Debra I think your fabrics will work are you planning to use the large print as number 4. I would use the white as #2 and either the red or brown as your number 1. I have not seen the whole pattern but based on what has been made so far #2 seems to be the back ground and 4 seems to be a focal fabric. Your red and brown seem to be the same shade you might want to consider a lighter shade of either one of them because they will end up next to each other and you would have better contrast if one was more of a medium shade. Your focal fabric also appears to have a green in it you might bring in a medium green as your # 3 and use the brown and red as your #'s 1 & 5 You also may consider a gold like the poo bear as your #6 fabric. I hope the directions that I gave you on how to upload pictures will help. This is just a suggest I don't have the pattern so I am going by what Ann had suggested.

Debra, 

Pick a fun focus material, then pull colours from that fabric. Don't be afraid of the darker colours. I made a quilt With sage greens and golds [It was a request} It turned out rather nice. Feminine and soficticated, able to last past the first year.

Hi Debra

Mountain mist polyester is what I was talking about, I haven't used their cotton blend. I would assume their cotton blend is comparable to all the other cotton blends. I was just warned from other LAQ s about the fire hazard of the poly kind.

Hi Debra, The pieces for my fish quilt - the pattern (templates) are bigger...I measured the seam allowance..and they are way bigger than they are suposto. so I do cut off the water and all is fine..Thanks again, Joanna

Debra, thanks for the compliment on my little wallhanging.  You can find the design at www.emblibrary.com.  After you get on their home page, go to the little search box and type in tweets and all of them should come up.  You do have to have an embroidery machine to do them on.  After the stitching was finished I squared the blocks up to 12-1/2" and then added 1" and 3" borders as I wanted to keep it under 20".  Then I just stippled quilted the center and then straight lines 1/2" apart on the outside border.

Debra - thanks for your comment on the quilting slump post.  It is encouraging to know that it only takes a little push and all that excitement and fun is back motivating us to jump in again.

Hi Deb, the corner to corner is: I had to go on line to remember to do it- it has been so long.  Go on the "Crochet Crowd" and there is a guy who teaches you how to do it. That is how I did it..if you can't get that then I 'll go step by step and teach you that way...

Hi Debra, Look up on line the disappering 9 patch and then the 4 patch, it is so easy you will want to do one,,,I looked on a friends page and it was so pretty, I made a block followed the directions 4 cuts and you sew it back together and your done ~ Viola! Your going to love it..Enjoy~ Joanna

To answer your question on my blog re:  Disappearing Nine Patch.  Very simple.  Make a nine patch block; I used 5 inch squares.  Press.  Cut the block horizontal and vertical in the middle of the block.  Now you have 4 new blocks.  Make as many of these as you like.  Rearrange all of these new blocks till you like what you see.  Sew blocks together; add border and binding.  I'm sure if you go online you'd be able to find the pattern.  I found it on "Downey's Quilts For Kids".  Happy quilting.
