They are but they are going over a "stuffed" area and the question is how thick to make them.  i'll figure it out I'm sure.  I'll take them to the group and ask Marilyn.  She is the fastest creative person I have ever met.  She is amazing.  In one short afternoon she found the solution to the messed up sashing, how to highlight the eyes in the patchwork cat, fix the skirt and a continuous line quilting pattern for the pet bom.  It might have taken me forever to come up with much more common answers for all those fixes.  So wow.

I was going to ask Marilyn about that and forgot, groan.  I also messed up all the blocks that I've been working on making them to small because the big one was in the bag to go to the meeting.  Just shoot me I deserve it.  Can not hurry quilting, must do one thing at a time and in order.  I'll get that right one of these days.

Got the whiskers on the cat in the patchwork block.  I decided to use 3 strands of floss.  I think it was to much but then there you are.  I don't think it brought the focus to the eyes but I'm thinking now if I add a nose and mouth maybe that will do it.

I wonder if I should stay in white or switch to another color.  There is always some decision to make.  Maybe I should try it on a scrap piece of fabric.

sashing around two of the blocks done.  3 to go.  Can't wait to see the end of this project.  I hate it.

I'm sorry. It is sad that a project affects you that way.

I should have thought about the lieily results before I started by I have a tendency not to do that.

I got all the sashing done today.  I got the dinningroom table cleaned off so I could sandwich the quilt and laid out the batting and the backing after ironing the backing.  So I'm happy with the progress today.

corrected the size of the one block that I made to large.  I have the layout now I think.  So it is time to sew it together after lunch.

did it this morning.  It's not flat.  Why am I not surprised?  The batting isn't flat either.  I'm going to have puckers darn it.  I'll have to think of something.  I did find some variegated thread for the quilting.

spray based the top to the sandwich.  It is so puckered it isn't funny but I'm going with it anyway.  Just not interested in arguing with it.  I guess it will be a hope chest liner.

Put the safety pins in it.  So now it is on to the quilting.  I hope that is completed in the next few days.

got the stitch in the ditch done between the blocks.  That is a start.  Now if I can do two blocks a day for the next 3 days I'm on schedule.  We'll see how that goes.

I ironed and pinned the top binding.  I'm going to machine bind even if it doesn't look as good.  This one has to get finished and out of my hair.  Hope chest liner it certainly is.

top and bottom bindings are on and one side is pinned.  No puckers so I'm really please with the improvement i've made machine binding both sides at the same time.  i'm straight stitching rather than doing a decorative stitch.

Got the one side sewn and the other side pinned.  So another day should see it finished.  So glad.  I need a finish.  Things have been dragging here and that doesn't help me stay positive.

Good luck! One more post to say it's done and the whole thread will be done, too.

It's Done!  It's Done!  It's Done!

I'll post the link when Clyde takes the picture and post it on the quilt club website. 

And if I ever decide to go back and quilt the blocks I'll  post that too of course.  But right now i'm to tired of it to even think about anything but being happy one of them is gone.
