lol I can't imagine what my blocks would look like if I drank while I quilted! Grin

Nice!

Maybe it's the key to make paper piercing come out right

Loving all the blocks that have turned up Cheesy

Just popped in to say I found us a wine. Maybe you've seen it? It might be shit, and I don't even like wine, but it's theme appropriate dammit!

 I found a tute on Youtube from The Crafty Gemini that was pretty good though if any if you are still having trouble.

I tried that in the past and hated it. My current preferred style that sort of works is to trace the pieces on fabric, cut with double seam allowance, stick a needle through the pattern in each end of the line to be sewn, and stick them through the tracing on the fabric as well. I let the needles stick straight up and pin along the side. Works for me. Better anyway. Smiley (actually I didn't trace, I printed an extra pattern, cut it, and just pinned the pieces on and used them as "trace" but it was hard getting them to lie flat against the fabric to stick the corner needles in the right place)

Love the offset in the stars of choice, have to remember that! I sent the quilt to a long arm, very expensive but well worth for the professional look. It's "keukenhof" at this place http://www.quiltlena.se/p/quiltmonster.html?m=1
She only does edge to edge though, I wish we had some more intricate options for border quilting, but I haven't found any.

Originally I was thinking matching, but do whatever strikes your fancy Smiley I'm going to mix it up with spoonflower swatches anyway, so either will suit the theme.

Yeah,the quilt was a success! That's mom's red living room at the parents'summer house - red couch, red mat, one red wall - figured a red and white quilt from you guys would be perfect in the mix, and dare I say I was right Cheesy

Glad you're okay! And my garden fences are amazing Cheesy

Just checking in, Exxa appreciates the work y'all did on her camouflage

Thank you Cheesy It's actually weirdly "cold" here, has been all summer. And winter was weirdly warm. If you don't believe in "global warming" (or its more proper name "weather be crazy") come visit Sweden... Tongue But! I've appreciated that when standing over the iron for this swap! Wink Anyway, rant aside, I've SENT! In time before vacation! Mwuhaha. >_> I'll probably keep in touch while I'm away too, but FYI I'll be away for three weeks, in case I go incommunicado Smiley

I'm glad you like them! They were fun to make, though my machine hated some of those corners Cheesy There's something wrong with the pressure on my machine and it's not adjustable. That's justification enough to buy another machine, right? Right? (though I'll probably just get mine some much needed service, any year now)

I've posted sloth's fences now. I'm LOVING the color combination, I would never have thought of it. I'll probably put everything in the mail tomorrow before going on vacation Smiley
