July square

Ok, so yes I am ahead of the game. However I now have 3 large quilts to work on. One for fun, then one for my mom and one for my sister.

I hope you like it Andrea! I had a couple of problems with it, and had to somewhat wing it. But I think it turned out pretty well!

July fabric

I've sent out most of the fabric for July, with the exception of Dominique (thanks for the address!) and Heather ( I apologize for the delay, but I simply cannot allow myself to send you fabric until I've finished your block! and I'm still trying to figure out how to do it)

Just to clarify on the signatures-- I think it would be neat to have them stitched in, but really, I understand if you don't feel up to it. My backup plan is to get my sis to embroider your initials and states on your blocks, so don't feel like you HAVE to do it.

Also, I wanted to remind everyone that the solid pink is the only fabric that everyone received. There's a very wide variety of shades and patterns, so I want the pink to be the common feature.

Thanks, ladies! You can reach me at ceresas07 (at) gmail(dot)com if you have questions.

Some blocks

I got Patty and Andrea's blocks done and am almost finished with Christina's and HORRORS my machine is totally jacked-up. I'm not sure how it happened, but I can't fix it. Unfortunately since we live in a small town, I have to drive an hour to take it in to the shop. Arg. So, hopefully it'll be fixed soon and I'll get back on track.

The squares I have received....

I have received 7 of my squares back. It looks like I haven't received any from the group of ladies that I sent the other grouping of colors to. Hope to see some of them soon!

Thanks ladies!

Hey girls,

I have a few things to say. First of all, THANK YOU to Heather, Kim, and Andrea for the beautiful blocks they have sent me! I am eagerly awaiting the rest of yours.
Second, did you know that you can write in this blog using your own blogger ID? You just log into Nestquilt, go to "Settings", "Permissions", and then send yourself an invite.

Third, here is a picture of the block I received from Andrea yesterday.
And here are all the blocks I have so far, including 2 from Heather and 2 I have made:

(sorry for the lame lighting in the second one)

This second block is something I came up with, mostly because I couldn't find any patterns that would coordinate with the amount of fabric I had left =)

Hi Patty =) Thought the Wonky Star would go with your block, so hope you like it. I should have enough for another block, I just dont have any fun ideas yet =) Heather

For My Own Quilt

I sent fabric to everyone yesterday, so hopefully you all get it soon. Today I was feeling so inspired by the fabric I chose that I made a block for my quilt. I can't wait to see what you all do with the fabric-I hope the bright colors inspire you too!
I think when I go about the actual quilting, I will quilt some "rays" around that sun up in the corner.


May square

I sent this out to Christina yesterday. Hope you like it!
