That would be great to meet up for a bit.  Iwas planning on going down this wee but forgot about a vet appointment and some farm business I need to get taken care of, so my plan is for next week.  I hadn't planned on going to the quilt museum--not really interested in fancy art quilts.  I do admire the women who make them, but it just overwhelms me!  I'll let you know when I'm sure of my plans and will give you a heads up.  

Do you use many floral prints in your projects?  I don't really use them that much and would be glad to bring some to share with you.

BASEBALL...ok baseball quilts for the grandsons.  They both had a terrific year of travel ball and did really well.  One played in a tournament at the Field of Dreams, the older one played in a big tournament in Louisville KY and toured the Louisville Slugger Baseball bat factory.  

Found the fabric (Dan Morris America's Pastime) for these quilts at in Fly Creek NY.  Doing them in a 12.5" Split Ohio Star, as they live in Ohio. Not sure if I'll use sashing or not yet.

What perfect fabric and pattern for your baseball boys! I'm sure they will just love them.

I have the same "quilt/block" size issue when I try to put something on point in EQ as well.  AND when I do a check on blocks in the quilt by doing a preview of them, they are always bigger than my original size.  

The larger size is due to the EQ measuring from Point to Point, instead of side to side, therefore the Quilt size will show larger.   My Blocks are actually 12.5 unfinished.

Just make a few and layout them out and keep measuring until you get the Size of quilt you really want. 


I think I'll ask my EQ instructor and see what the response is and will share with you.

The final step for this quilt was gifting it to the couple this afternoon. We took a huge detour thru the mountains to see some Fall color. Got this parting shot of the double wedding ring quilt. They both loved it.

That is beautiful. Love the color you use.

beautiful quilt Ami.  Did you take some close ups of the quilting?

Thank you. It is one of the few quilts that I bought all the fabric to make it. It took a few months and multiple stores to find just the right mix of colors.
