    You’ve had some GRRRR quilting lately, haven’t you? Well it will get better! All your projects look great! I’m going to tell people on my other blog about your round robin! Sounds like fun! Hugs Roseanne!

    You sound just like me with the Baby Teething Ring. But you know what, I finally just quilted it! Now, don’t ask me about the binding! LOL

    Love the purple block. It looks terrific.

  4. I think your corner star turned out great, and good for you that you’re willing to improvise a little! Those pineapple coconut cookies sound delicious! Have a great day, Mary.

  5. You forgot ‘make fudge’ on the ToDos for this coming week!!!!!

  6. Rochelle Summers says:

    It sounds like you are ready for Christmas. I’ll be right over to taste the fudge as soon as you finish it. You’ve really been busy with baking, sewing and planning the next project. The round robin sounds like fun. Have a merry Christmas.

    Those pineapple coconut cookies sound SOOO good! I want some! I’m the only one in the family that likes coconut, and I LOVE it!! Add pineapple and it has to be delicious! LOL You did a great job on your Melva block! I love that deep purple fabric! It looks sparkly!! I don’t care for paper piecing either! I’ve done it a few times, but not my favorite thing to do. Merry Christmas to you, Sue and your families!! Enjoy those littles! I can’t wait until mine get back from Disney tomorrow night or Thursday morning!

  8. Laura says:

    I love coconut, so I have a feeling that I would eat more than my fair share of these cookies!

    I have been involved in several round robins, and had lots of fun! It is a great way to stitch memories with friends! 🙂

    Congrats on those checkmarks! 🙂

    Those pineapple coconut cookies sound yummy! I’m not cookie baking this year as family has not been visiting because of Covid. 🙁 But we will gather on the 26th and since my daughter is the baker in the family – I’ll leave it up to her! Hm, I had little movement on quilting projects this week too. Oh well, that mojo will come back. That SAHRR should be fun!

  10. What fun and pretty progress you have made this past week. Love the idea of the SAHRR! Medallion quilts are so much fun! Merry Christmas to you and yours. I hope you are filled with joy as you spend time with your family and friends over the holiday season. ⛄️

  11. You did well with your goals and when you are in the mood, you will tackle the quilting again. Good luck with the Round Robin….I am in the process of figuring out my new years goals, so we will see if the Round Robin lands.

    You do realize that telling someone NOT to inspect closely is an automatic invite? I’ve had some issues trying to alter thing like that so I get it–yours looks great, btw. It’s all one color and the edges look nice and crisp against the white! I don’t know what we’re supposed to do in those situations but try to fudge our way through. The cookies sound yummy! Merry Christmas!

  13. You have been getting things done over there – and some fun projects, no less! Those cookies sound tasty; I’d line up for taste-testing those! Love your purple block, and I like that it has your twist on it. I’m working on my RR but need to get posts written soon. Probably won’t start that until after Christmas. My poor little brain can only handle so much. Ha! Merry Christmas to you and Sue and your families!

  14. Denise says:

    I really did read your entire post but after reading pineapple coconut cookies that is the only thing I can recall. Just the name has my mouth watering. Hope mom enjoys them and ask her to have a couple for me too. I love your block for Melva’s qal and the pinwheel blocks.Thank you for the linky party and Merry Christmas to you all.

  15. I think your purple Corner Star looks great, Roseanne! Paper-piecing does take some getting used to, but the way you figured this block out worked in the end. I’m curious about the round robin project. Can anyone join in? I’ll keep that idea on the back burner for now! Enjoy some fudge this week?

  16. Rebecca Grace says:

    Your Corner Star and your Four Patch Plus both look great. I’m sorry you struggled with the paper piecing! I wish I was there to help you! But your solution worked out just fine. Isn’t it great that there are so many different ways to accomplish the same thing in quilting? You should have seen me struggling this week with my Disappearing 9 Patch blocks. First there was the cutting mishap, when I pieced my perfect, giant 9-patch block, laid down my ruler to cut it in half, and didn’t realize that my ruler was aligned incorrectly until AFTER I’d cut the block in both directions, sewn them together, and suddenly the two halves of my block were different sizes… Then I made some more giant 9 patches where I accidentally reversed the positions of the prints and solids and didn’t realize THAT until both blocks were completely sewn together. Aaaargh! I am thinking that the construction method isn’t a good fit for my personality! Instead of continuing to make giant 9 patches and cut them up, I think I might cheat and cut out some smaller squares and rectangles so I can put the blocks together in a way that makes it easier for me to keep track of what I’m supposed to be doing. Bonus: If I can cut some 2 1/2″ squares, I can use up some of the smaller scraps of Christmas fabric that I couldn’t get 5″ squares from!

  17. Congrats on all the check marks from last week and good luck with this week’s to do list. Hard to believe we are down to just one more To Do before the new year. Have a very Merry Christmas!

    I love your pinwheel set up and your star from Melva’s site! I am really interested in the Round Robin as long as I don’t have to mail anything. Our mail is taking forever and we know a big part of it is covid and that our sorting machines where destroyed by the goverment. Looking forward to learning more about this! Have a wonderful week and take some time off for yourself. You and your blog have really kept me going this past year. Thank you so much! Hugs!

  19. Gretchen says:

    There are several special quilting projects happening online. Quilting Gail has a mystery in December and the Stay at Home Round Robin sounds like fun too. But there are so many projects and not enough time! Have a happy Christmas however you celebrate this year and as always, happy stitching!
