Cris, just tried to email you and it bounced back.  Did I type it wrong?

Dee,

I may have given it to you incorrectly.  The final part is  "really" bresnan.net. 

Sorry for the confusion.

I'm still working my way through the billions of UFO's I've had lying about for way to long.  Currently have 7 in the garage ready for quilting (favorite machine for this having a spa day) and have 4 more being basted by friends in a group.  This one has been around since 2017 I think.  Just needs a border which is cut and ready. Size will end up 42 x 54.  Unless I put second border on to enlarge just a bit.  Most of my quilts go to charities for kids.

Thank you for the encouragement,

I use a lot of washable Glue Sticks and Elmers glue on point.  It helps keep things in place and no pins required.  

I also glue bindings after I sew it on the quilt. I turn to the front and press in place then glue down.. Makes those

mitered corners look really good.

Love your quit!  That's a lot of little triangles to put together.  Congratulations on attacking you UFOs.  It feels good to see projects go from the UFO pile to the completted pile.

Got it, Dee!  I'm hoping you'll let this be a kind of "pay it forward" deal.  You're always so generous with everyone here in sharing your stash and humor.  As good as you must feel doing things for other people, please let it be YOUR turn to have something nice happen to you!

P.S.  I'll let you know when I get to the post office.

 

aww, well thanks.  I appreciate that.  I did finally send my strings to Jo (after 3 months - geesh time flies, would have sworn it was just last month and not May when I promised to send them).

I did go ahead and purchase the Kaleidoscopes patterns from Mary Corbet.  I have always loved mandala type patterns.  Isn't this one amazing!

I'm going to try and make myself wait until my Christmas applique project is embellished before I start any of these tho.  I already have two hand projects - I need to finish one of them before I start another.  and maybe itching to start these will keep me moving.  blush 

I've gotten a little discouraged on the Christmas applique - the prepared edge applique is very portable and you can tell about the color mix of the fabrics very well.   But good golly, stitching through several layers of glued/starched batik is nerve wracking.  I'm constantly worried that I'll either break the needle, shred the thread, or the thimble will slip and stab the back through my thumb.  Not very enjoyable.  I've stopped using the batiks for the leaves, hoping the regular cotton will work better.  And I cut down on the amount of glue I'm using also.  learn as you go.  But I have two blocks partially done, I don't want to remove the batiks so I'm just gritting my teeth and pushing on.
