  1. Both of your quilts are absolutely stunning. Great job. Alyn
  2. Shana, How adorable. I love moose and have a collection. Would you mind sending one more set of e-mail pics? Sure would appreciate it. Thanks, Alyn
  3. I too am behind in the blocks but do intend to get them done... The ones that I have received are great. As life goes, it seems that if you "plan" on a day something always happens. Anyway, happy quilting. Alyn
  4. Sharon, What a wonderful, loving birthday tribute for your mom. My mom is 84 and no longer able to sew though she did the same for me. We are blessed aren't we. Hope you mother has a wonderful birthday and that you are able to spend time together. Alyn
  5. Beautiful JoAnn. Do you have a class schedule that you teach? I looked on your website and didn't find one. thanks, Alyn
  6. I too am behind in thank yous and in sending out blocks. I know that I recently received a beautirful card trick block from Linda Card. Have always wanted to try that pattern but just haven't gotten it done. Thank you!!! I have a couple made that I need to get in the mail also and one that I received that I have not sent a thank you to..will do so when I get home. Thanks again. Alyn Spring has Sprung in SD Meadowlarks last week and Robins this week
  7. Thank you Carol Hillary for my beautiful birthday block. My, my, you certainly have been busy. It's certainly a much appreciated early BD present. Alyn in not so windy SD today.
  8. Janome 6500, I love it. Friend has the newer 6600 and loves it too. Alyn in Windy (but no snow) Rapid City, SD
  9. If I remember right in the list that we got, there were some on there that stated they were only going to do their birthday month. I also believe that someone said they were only going to do a specific number. I know that I am behind in sending mine out. I have been doing similar to Norece as far as size and color, trying to group together. Mine is a November birthday and I had already received a block (Thanks again Norece). We just need to remember to have fun with this. :cool: Alyn
  10. Hi, I have actually made two of these out of my dad's shirts. One for my brother and one for myself. I used a star pattern and the shirt fabric for the points. I used black for the background in my brothers and an off-white for mine. As the shirts have all been washed, just be sure to wash your fabric (not sure if you routinely do that or not). My Dad restored John Deere tractors and gave one to my brother so I used a picture of Dad on the tractor in the label. Not sure what to tell you about the cost for this. Hope this helps. Alyn
  11. I received an early birthday block the other day from Norece and it is great. Thank you Norece. Just returned from a weeks vacation, first in 3 years that it was waiting for me..What an nice surprise. My "goal" is to get started this week on the blocks that I am behind in. thank you again. This is going to be so much fun. Alyn in windy, cold SD
  12. Hi Vicki, I had ask this under the Nov. thread but haven't heard back so thought I would try this one. I haven't received a copy of the spread sheet with info regarding blocks. Or do we just need to go thru each month to pick out the ones that we are going to do. Sorry if I remain confused on this. I know there are more than likely several Jan. BD's that have passed but those can be caught up on. If you need more info from me, please let me know. Thanks for everything that you are doing to make this go smoothly,. Alyn
  13. Hi Vicki, You had previously mentioned sending out the list for the block exchange. Have you had the opportunity to do this yet? If so, I have not received it. If you need other information to get it to me, please let me know. Thanks. Alyn
  14. thanks. I had looked at his web site but obviously didn't search for the correct term"strike". Thanks for your help. Merry Christmas
  15. Hi, I am looking for a bowling related pattern as I have a t-shirt quilt to do for a kids bowling charity raffle. I have searched the internet and looked at some of the places that I have purchased pantos but haven't had any luck so am hoping that someone will know of one available. Thanks in advance. Merry Christmas Alyn
