So sad your cousin is being pigheaded about sharing those old photos and documents.  Seems like most families have "one of those".  I have one of those cousins like that.  She would tell me about all the photos and documents she had, but she certainly wouldn't share ( too hard to look for).  She was also a hoarder and a bit off her rocker.  She would rather pitch things than share.  When her nephews went through her house after she went into the nursing home, they looked hard for the photos and stuff but found nothing.  Grrrr...

I don't know how long it's been since you originally reached out to your cousin, if it's been a few years you might try again.  He might have come to realize that at some point he's going to have to or hire someone to clean out that attic if he's ever going to sell the house. Unless he's planning on making it his forever home, than other family will have to clean it out.

I thought you were going to applique that whole piece of smooshed hexies onto a background.  Then you wouldn't need more hexies around the edges, although a green might look nice.  I remember you starting this.

They are also in the process of digitalizing all the info and anyone can have access.  Good for anyone researching.

Yeah, the plan is to still applique all the smooshed hexies onto a background, but I think I want a less zig-zaggy edge at this point.

I *also* made a basic mistake when I was constructing the very first row but didn't discover the error until a couple of rows in .. when I was wondering why the heck the hexies weren't lining up as I expected.  It turned out that on that very first row, I didn't align the hexies in the correct orientation.  Sigh.  Well ... I decided just to leave it the way it was.  Consider it a "design opportunity".  :-)

I'm thinking that hexies, cleverly disguised as green "leaves" might add a bit of interest around the perimeter.  We'll see how that goes.  :-)

I’m always inspired by retreats. Also trying things I wouldn’t at home such as the bargello you taught. I loved that!

We need you to start a new Thread with 2020 in the title.. LOL

Hi Lynne, 

I can’t open the link to your photos.  I’ll try again in the morning. Hoping to get some string quilt ideas. I’ve finished my 4th one this month.

What a great idea to turn it into a tree skirt.  Now it will even be used.  Win, win!

I really love the 3 Dudes Tree quilt.  Would you post a link where I can find the pattern.  I tried searching on-line and couldn't find it.
