Well I don't want to jinx it.

I've got 1/3 of the sashing on the second block.  The problem being their are 15 blocks and I really want to get it done by next tuesday but i don't think I'm going to make it.

Ah, I won't jinx it either. I hope you get it done in time. I think it's more important that you get it done right in the end.

I agree with Tina.  While I do hope you get it done on time, I'd rather you get it done right the first time.

Did I mention a JINX?  I evidently can not count when doing crafts.  First I thought it was just counted cross stitch.  Now it appears it is also quilting.  I had 12 blocks not 15.  So now i have to go back and make another 3 blocks then sash them.  Tuesday just doesn't sound likely.  At least this explains why it looked like I had to much material.

I agree the rows I've put together look really cool.

I wish I could take good pictures.  I'd love to show you how far I've gotten. 

I'm sashing the blocks in the 4th row and I've squared almost all of the squares for the 5th rows blocks.

I've sashed the 5th row.  Now I have to put it together.  Then sew all the rows together.  After that, I put on the border and send it off to Marilyn to quilt.  We've talked about the quilting a couple of times but I've told her the final decision is hers.

I can't wait for pictures. Does Marilyn take pics of her work? Can you get her to send some of them?

I'll ask her.  We'll have a picture of the community quilt when it is finished from the quilters show and tell at the club.  The quilting doesn't show up that well on that but maybe we can do something with the light hitting it better.

I'm just happy all the rows are together and the first two are pinned together.  I had planned to get more done but the car needed to go in the shop and there was an opening this morning.

I wish I still have the borders to do.  I got them cut and pinned today.  Hopefully by tomorrow I'll have them sewn on.  I'm still plodding along.

Plodding is a lot better than stagnant, Tammy. Good going.
