This should have been completed HOURS ago. I was ready to put in the last seam and would you believe that 2 blocks were turned around? Ever had that happen? Somehow something was backwards. I could blame Rocky, but, he has been outside all day. Anyhow, at least it is now finished and I can now go on to something else. I think that needs to be the Bug quilt that I was quilting more than a month ago. The Bugs will be someones Christmas quilt, but I don't know who.
Now to clean up the kitchen, make some cornbread and fix supper.
PS. right now, blogger won't show my signatures, hope they fix this soon.
This is Rocky and Patches. He really gave her a hard time yesterday. It was cold outside, so Dick decided that he needed to be inside. What a day!
He harrassed that cat all day. Rocky loves to lick, like any Lab, and Patches was soaking wet most of the time. She really was patient with him.
This is another block to my Cottage Garden Quilt. This makes block number 3. Only 6 more to go!!! This project will have to age for a while so that I can get back to work on Christmas.
Now, to Baby Jane. I have caught up again.

This red and white block is C-5 Eye of the Cyclone. It required a little piecing and a little applique. Lots of fun to do
Next Up would be yellow and white and called C-4 Tic Tac Toe-variation 1. This required some
paper piecing and a little adjustment on the corners. What fun!

The Tulip is one that we exhibited during the library exhibit because it's background is done in the log cabin style.
The red, white, and black is a miniature that I did for our guild challenge last year. I was really disappointed in how it was displayed. It was in a case that showed lots of Carolina and Clemson pieces. Anyone who knows me, knows that I AM NOT A GAMECOCK, no matter how badly Clemson in playing.
How about Piper at the Fair?
These three are cut from the same cloth.
All Piper wanted to ride was the Merry Go Round. She did not want anything to do with the Horses, just to sit on the bench and ride. She had a fantastic time and rode 2 times with her Mom and 2 times with her Uncle Jay.
This has to be the best trip to the fair since my children were young. Of course we couldn't enjoy it as much then because they were our children.
I do hope everyone has a good week. I will be getting everything together to attend Quilters of South Carolina Fall Retreat. I am looking forward to the whole experience. That said, I will be 4-5 blocks behind on my Baby Jane when I return and will then spend the next week catching up. See you later,

What is wrong with this picture? The block is actually
D-11 Snow Crystal. It took me at least 4 hours to complete this Block while at Quilt Camp. Tonight while I am taking pictures of my completed blocks it all of a sudden dawns on me that this block is not correctly done.
All four of the large diamonds are suppose to be gold. Sooooooooooo, guess that I will have to re-do this one, but for now I am going to put it aside. I need a day or two to work up the nerve to start it again. It was a BEAR!!!
Now we have K-10 Quandry. Done while at Quilt Camp
How about M-13 Lynette's Diamond?
Done while at Quilt Camp.
This is Courtney's Stethoscope. I did this one today.
This is D-6 Challenge. Did this one at, you guessed it,
This is G-1 Hattie's Hen House,
done at Quilt Camp
This one is LS-9 Kiwi.
I did this while at Quilt Camp last weekend. In fact most of these blocks were done while at Quilt Camp.
This one was done today. It is TR-3 Checkerboard.
I will have a different post re: the real happenings at "Quilt Camp" in a few days. It was one fantastic weekend with 17 of our best friends. I am soooooooooo sorry that you missed it, but I hope that you can make it in February 2009.

Our last event was in April and somethings needed to be reworked for this one. I also needed a new mouse for the laptop, a new printer(the other one died), and a few other goodies for our surprise that we have planned for the weekend. During Spring Quilt Camp we always have a mystery quilt that those who want to can work on. But for Fall we just try to do some "little"(and I stress little) project that doesn't take much time and can be serious or silly. I think we have just the thing this time.
If you look very closely you would be able to see what the project might be--Good Luck!!!
You might also see some of the goodies that folks will win over the course of our get together.
What you won't see is all of the fun that we will have. We laugh, we cry, we get silly, we get serious. It is amazing how renewing these weekends are. When I get home on Sunday I will be exhausted but in a good way.
I'll post many pictures after we return. Have a good week. Stay safe.
PS. That is Patches the cat checking out the studio. I wish she knew how to catalog books. My library is running over.
