Enjoy the day trip Barbara...of course, post photos next week. Try laying a piece of heavy clear plastic over the quilt, draw design using erasable ( whiteboard) markers, take photo , then wipe clean & try another idea. Do this with as many ideas you can think of...then review photos & chose your fave. If the plastic is not large, best be safe and tape perimeter with blue / green painters' tape to avoid accidently marking on actual quilt.( don't ask! lol)

Great Quilt, Kris. It's a piece of art!! 
Momma Duck, can I take pics next week. I have been working on birthday gifts for my granddaughters. And need to put in some more hours on my star quilt. But I do have the feel for it now and a lot of it will be just stitch in the ditch, but the white will have more quilting in it. I think??  I change my mind as a go on most projects. They don't turn out like I started. I did want to finish in January, that's not going to happen,  We are going out of town today.

Great looking quilt so far, Kris. Love those fabrics in rose, black & white too.

I made 3 more SS blocks last night, 1 more tonight.  That gave me enough for another row, so the bottom row is new.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on January 30, 2020 at 10:32pm

Beautiful family Kris and your sewing room is wonderful with lots of space. Love the blocks, they should make a beautiful quilt.

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 30, 2020 at 9:22pm

Great looking room, Kris. Glad you got to enjoy some sewing between packing and visiting.L♡ve the top right block with little ballerina... obviosly not a quilt for those handsome grandsons :-))

Lovely blocks, Kris! Very neat and clean sewing room. Momma Duck will be very proud.

Comment by Kris Howell on January 30, 2020 at 4:04pm

Yes, Momma Duck - sewing room organized, conveniently arranged, tools in the lovely wooden work box, and I know where each one is.  Sewing machine has been serviced, quilting machine is at the LQS now for the same.  I got some Splendid Sampler work done one night last week.

Comment by Kris Howell on January 30, 2020 at 3:54pm

Chris - your Vintage Rose is beautiful!!  

Mary - I can't wait to see your quilt all together.

Gail - take your time, rest up.  Sure do hope you feel better soon.

Indy - stop coughing!!  (Yeah - like that's going to work, lol)  Glad you like the new vet.

I am hoping to reform some of my crooked ways. LOL!! I printed out the tips and rules that Momma Duck laid out for us. Who knows I might turn over a new leaf.

I've been working so hard today.  All 16 blocks are done and I've laid out both quilts and numbered the blocks.  We just got back from doing the groceries and I think I will have a little nap.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 30, 2020 at 9:34am

Thank you, Barbara.

I don't think I can totally reform and especially now when I have stacks of fabric to be ironed in every nook and cranny, Riana.  I have a friend who phoned me in the evening recently asking for her fidget quilt for this Saturday which is a QOVC sew-day.  I told her that a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment doesn't mean she needs a fidget quilt by the week-end but she insisted (keep in mind she isn't paying me) so I've made her quilt priority no.1 and I will give it to her this Saturday come hell or high water.  So, it is just a slight detour, Riana, a "time sensitive project" in your words.

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 29, 2020 at 9:49pm

Gail, what are your 3 most important and time sensitive projects?

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 29, 2020 at 9:49pm

Elizabeth, l know you often sew downstairs in the common room at your building, so you must tidy/ pack after each of those sessions. Once every 2 weeks won't cut it for the rest of us. Threads get stuck to projects, pieces get misplacec/ lost, and worse, when we work in  a messy room, it takes away efficiency.

Comment by Linda Koller on January 29, 2020 at 2:50pm

Elizabeth, can't wait to see all your blocks put together!

Comment by Gail Brown on January 29, 2020 at 12:14pm

I may have to narrow my list down from 6 to whatever I am able to do when I can finally do something.  Went to  the neurosurgery this morning and was told that no surgery needed at this time, just kind of put up with the pain and do nothing.  They did say I could call the Spine and Pain Management doctor to see if they could give me something more for the pain.  Have to go back to the neurosurgery in a month, more x-rays to see if back is healing.  In my head I'm still young but evidently my body hasn't gotten the message.  The bright spot is that my sewing area looks just wonderful, not even a stray thread anywhere.  If you Girls keep up all your good work maybe I'll send you some of mine, {not really}.  

You Girls keep going, I'll stand guard over the "snapping turtles."
