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

Yes, pattern says 79" x 93" and I guess that size didn't register with me  as HUGE when I bought the pattern.  I also didn't peek at the pattern, nor did Gwen, to realize the eyestrain involved in piecing this quilt!  It's been fun so far, although I have to do it in small doses as it certainly takes some concentration!  Gwen has the kit, I have just the pattern so my fabric choices aren't necessarily the designer's; I'm just pulling from my stash.  We shall see how it works out..........

On my, it looks like it is going to be a big quilt. That is an amazing undertaking.

Our progress so far is pictured on page 3 of this groups right now.

Sorry Janis, RMH is the Rocky Mountain High pattern that both Gwen and I are working on.

Sheila, very pretty quilt. That's a lot of strips.

Qwen, how big is Monday's at Grandma's House? That is really beautiful. And could you tell me what RMH means. I'm not familiar with that term.

Comment by Carol Vickers/OH on April 21, 2020 at 8:20am

Oh that is lovely and your RMH will be spectacular.  You know me, I'll be sticking to the pattern.

Here's the piece 'Monday's at Grandma's House....'

Thanks, Gwen. I was thinking of something in the pink range also. Not a lot but just something that will show off the other colors. I'm still tying to get samples of fabric. The shop in Oregon must be swamped and everything around here is closed for now.

Sunday I noticed my Pennsylvania Sunburst quilt which is on the third page of my pictures, has a hole in the yellow border. The batting is coming out. I've looked for any left over of the fabric in my room but so far have found none. It has pretty tight stippling so not sure how I would fix it. I've had it on my bed for 15 years so I guess it held up pretty well. If it was one of the half square triangles I'd know how to fix it but not sure what to do now. I thought about adding some applique flowers in the borders which would be a challenge because of the size so I'll have to think about it before I do anything.

Maybe I'll figure out what to do with the applique blocks that have been sitting waiting to be put together.  So much to do.

Sounds like fun, Carol.  I have a pattern for a mystery quilt by Bonnie Hunter, and even collected the fabric for it..but, there it sits. 

Here's a thought I have for the RMH..meaning I would turn it into an art piece, but use the basic pattern for the placement:

I (might) piece all the houses with muslin, as in the pattern. When the sections are all assembled, then I'd complete each house separately, then place them over their muslin backgrounds, and stitch them in place. I made a house using a Nancy Prince pattern, and thought I'd try it here.  I posted the piece on my page, and called it 'At Grandma's House on Monday'..(if anyone would want to check it out ;)

Gwen, no worries.  I got sidetracked too.  Had some mask requests and I'm trying to finish a mystery quilt one of the other QWU groups did.  It's a pretty pattern but I didn't have the right amount of fabrics that I loved together and ended up using an Easter bunny themed focal fabric which isn't my favorite, but somehow I had almost a whole bolt of it!  Here's the fabrics.  I'll post a pic of the finished top when it's done.
