I, too, love your blocks. Birdseye Quilt...I can't wait to see it come together! Great color choices, too! BTW, your little doggie stories are so sweet! :-)

Wow, the blocks look great! (no surprise there) I didn't realize how big they were -they look to be 12". The quilt is so big! I love it! Now I REALLY want to make it.

Birdseye blocks looking wonderful!!!


Those birdseye make me want this line, though it didn't do much for me when I say it.
Switch to whole wheat pasta and the extra fibre will make it not soooo bad. And of course the golden rule of any (sane/healthy) diet is portion control, almost more than what you eat.
Hopefully Sophie didn't smell too badly after her fun day running through the rain. My white maltese, come in brown whenever it rains, they love to play in the muck.

I love these blocks too. While I am mostly recovered from my surgery and back at work I can't seem to get my quilting mojo back in gear. I need to come up with a fabulous project to get me going. Maybe I should start by looking for some fabulous new fabric!

Days like that make me want to stay inside and make a big pot of stew or bean soup, with homemade biscuits or cornbread. You have the right idea with the comfort food. Mac n Cheese and spaghetti and meatballs are at the top of the list!

You're moving right along on those Birdseye blocks. You're going to have it to your quilter and home again in no time.


I love those blocks too! You are tempting me to add another project to my list! I wish we could have even one solid hour of your rain...I'm beginning to wonder if it will ever rain again here!

Ah jeez, Nicole. On the day after I get the report that my cholesterol is way up, you show me this yummy pasta. It look so good.
Your blocks are gorgeous too.


LOVE your choices and this block is terrific. I am going to have to purchase some of these patterns!


Hmm. . .I think that we are on the same diet. Husband gone must eat pasta. . .The quilt blocks are looking great and it sounds like you're haveing a ball making them.


I'm making the Birdeye quilt also. Lots of sewing but so much fun to make! I just love how it creates the design! I also eat lots of pasta as my husband travels almost every week. It's quick, easy, tasty and you can get back to sewing in no time.

I love the blocks and that they are all different. It takes a bit longer to make all those combinations, but the result is so much more interesting.

It rains so much here in the autumn, that we pretty much only notice the weather when it's fine. As I was reading your post, I was hoping Sophie was a four legged family member:-)

I also have pasta when husband's gone, he's not a big fan. Oh, I'm hungry!


ooooo Pasta! I think I am on the same diet as you. Whenever my hubby is out of town, I seem to gain weight. I wonder how that happens??


Oh I'm in love with those blocks...and that pasta...YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'm more of an apple cake for dinner kind of girl, but can sure relate to the pound a week thing.

Love the blocks, I'm going to go order that pattern right now!

It has been rainy here too....


Now that's a diet I could stick to and be successful at! Remember the rouenneries? Can you show us what you did?


I am on that diet, too. Why is all the good stuff so fattening ?
I sooo love the blocks. I would be doing a happy dance, too.
I HAVE to do that pattern at some point. I have done a block like that minus the 9 patch in the middle.
