Donniesgirl - so very sorry for your loss. Don't know which is worse - the long drawn out deaths we expect or the sudden ones that blindside us. Both can be so painful. Wishing you the peace that family, love, and the passage of time can bring.

Sloth, love the way your blocks came together. Think I'm going to have to do a few more rounds before I have enough blocks to finish my quilts since I want them to be queen-size.

Sorry to hear, Donniesgirl, take your time!

I could never do random grab assembly, my pattern recognition is far too overactive, and if I don't work really hard to accomplish "random", I will always see pooling of patterns or colors in my own work. I'm always so impressed by people who just DO random-style crafts. It doesn't work for me.

I really thought I was going to have a lot more trouble with the stars but in reality, I had more trouble with random scrappy stuff...that surprised me...I am trying to come up with a way to help me see which way pinwheels need to go...I decided marking the hypotenuse of the triangle would be the best way for me to orient my vision...

btw--did you guys see the awesome Halloween bag krbison made with a star?  It is in the Weekend Halloween Swap...it is fabulous!

Thanks - it has been a rough few days, but I'm back now. 

I think I've updated everyone's status, but if anything looks off, please PM me.  For the folks who are done, I will try to update status in the Craftster system later today.

Thanks everyone for the lovely blocks.  I think it will be a while before I assemble the quilt top.  I didn't say anything during the swap, because I didn't really want to talk about it, but August was a rough month.  I went in for my 20 week ultrasound, and we were told there was a problem with the baby.  The next week I was admitted to the hospital for induction.  Our son passed away 3 hours after he was born.  Since the quilt was supposed to be for him I can't really bring myself to work on it right now.  I really appreciate everyones work, and apologize for not having a quilt top to show you all.

Oh Lisa, I'm so so sorry. I'm sure everyone understands COMPLETELY that that will not be something you want to work on right now.
