Chris that is amazing.

Beth, Glad you found us.  Riana is Mama Duck and makes all the rules and keeps us organized.

Actually quilted for almost a half hour straight yesterday, between barking at Paul to behave.

WOW Chris!!

Comment by Linda Koller on January 21, 2020 at 8:23am

Chris, your Vintage Rose is spectacular!

Comment by Beth A. North on January 21, 2020 at 7:38am

Found the group.

OHG Mary, that is terrifying.  Not a fun thing at all.  Praying for full feeling back upon the healing process. 

Love the Vintage Rose Chris, looking great. 

Elizabeth, those applique blocks look wonderful.  

I am working on a couple of those PHD projects.  I have applique to cut out and then sew some dresden's onto the fusible interfacing so I can get them appliqued down.  

Have we figured out how we end up with these PHDs?

Made progress on the wedding quilt for my son in the last few days. I am making Vintage Rose by Quiltworx. His fiance's favorite color is purple.

Gail, praying you'll be back at it soon.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 20, 2020 at 12:33pm

Thank you Barbara and Linda.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 20, 2020 at 12:24pm

Gail, just rest up until you are feeling better.  I'm sidetracked with my Duck Quilt today.

Comment by Gail Brown on January 20, 2020 at 11:34am

I've been AWOL for a few days due to my back problems.  

Mary, so sorry to hear about Paul's accident.  I am praying that the "Miracle Surgeon" has performed an actual miracle for him.

Wilma, you are a great friend to be there when you are needed.  I know that was a comfort to your friend.

I see some beautiful progress going on, Pansies and Tulips, it's looking like a flower shop.  I'm hoping to be able to get back in the game real soon.  Right now arm movements cause a great deal of pain in my back.  It is driving me crazy not being able to do anything.  Guess I'll just have to be a spectator for now.

Liz, perhaps " quilt as you go" in rows...or make a matching table/ dresser runner?

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 20, 2020 at 9:51am

Riana, the stains faded a bit but are still there.  My friend who is the little girl's (eventual recipient) GGM said that she might not even notice them.

I'm beginning to doubt my first instinct of having 16 blocks in Tulip Twist.  With borders the quilt will be too cumbersome to quilt.  I may rethink just having 12 18 1/2" blocks.

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 19, 2020 at 9:40pm

Liz, those tulips with the green stems do look like they're dancing in the wind! That must've been the block the quilt was named for! I saw your explanation of the duck quilt over in the quilting bee group...you must've thought it was Beth who asked. Sounds like a great rescue. Were you able to get the stains out ok?

Wilma, it's nice your friend had you there to comfort him. The longer our journey , the more we lose a lot of friends and aquaintances. I often think of friends now passed, especially when l see or experience something they would've loved. I think to myself " my friend ___, l'll enjoy this on your behalf."

Comment by Ginny Andersen on January 19, 2020 at 8:49pm

OMGosh, Mary! I feel so bad for both of you! Prayers for Paul and you. 

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on January 19, 2020 at 8:34pm

Mary, sorry to hear about Paul.  Sometimes our husband’s don’t listen.  Hope he heals quickly, and glad you have the help of your grandson.

Everyone is doing so much and the quilts look wonderful.  I have done nothing for the past few days.  Went to CA for a memorial service of a long time friend whose wife passed away on Dec. 6 from lymphoma.  Just a young 73 and always helpful to everyone.  Hope to get back at it later this week.

On the way home there was a large alpha/hay field just loaded with Canadian geese.  All resting and enjoying life.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on January 19, 2020 at 7:59pm

So sorry to hear of Paul's accident. Prayers for healing.

Linda, Cute pic of Indy waiting for the drop!

Elizabeth and Linda your quilts look great.

Comment by Linda Koller on January 19, 2020 at 3:58pm

Mary, I hope Paul doesn't play with saws anymore.

Elizabeth, your blocks are beautiful!

Today I replaced the border on 3 of my blocks.  I switched the position of 2 of the blocks. Now I'm pretty happy with the layout. I've been overly tired the past few days so have been resting. This week I will be getting the ablation in my low back so will be out of commission for a few days later in the week. The beginning of the week I have my follow up visit with the throat doctor and I need to work on the community newsletter. You have a week to catch up, Elizabeth....LOL!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 19, 2020 at 1:23pm

Mary, so sorry to hear about Paul's accident!  I'm amazed to hear that the hospital was able to do so much for him.  Doctors can do miracles these day.  I hope that he will do as you say, Haha! and get better soon!

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 19, 2020 at 1:03pm

Moving right along today!  #14 and #15 are 1 pieced and 1 applique block.  Out of the scraps I cut out another pieced block (#16) so I will have 16 blocks all 18 1/2" for my Tulip Twist.  So 3 more blocks to go!

I also straight-line and free motion machine quilted the Duck Quilt and I am ready to trim the sides.

Oh Mary, how scary! Thank heaven for your grandson!
