This morning I went through the posts so far and updated the sidebar where your names are.....  M is for May (the little project if you wished), J for June and J for July.

You will notice some have j instead of J - this is code for those of you who have finished the applique but are choosing to do the piecing of squares at a later date - I feel it is still a finish but just noting the difference.

There are a number who have not started and not posted at all...... are you still sewing along with us???  Please let Raewyn and/or me know.  It really is a lovely quilt

The blocks are not too hard don't take too long to do - the pieces are quite big for applique and the piecing is all squares....

So what do you think of my outfits as whipcracker?  I'm wondering which suits me best .....

Hoping to see a few more blocks soon - I may have to call in another whipcracker to help ...

Fiona...I have felt all of those whips...you can use the last one on me any day...love HF! Lol. Ok I must make a decision on which fabrics to use! Such a dilemma to be honest. I don't have enough of either of my choices so this will cause me to break my New Years resolution. Herhee. Buy more fabric. Yikes! I'm going on a retreat this week so will catch up! Thanks for the fancy whips!

My favorites are the first, the third and, naturally, the last one!

My June is a j, now to find where I've stashed it. A Photo will get taken when I find it. July is a haven't started block. I probably won't be able to stick to the required months but they will be done. Sorry. I knew it would be a challenge to keep up so I guess it has to be at my own pace. It's so lovely to work on.

Lol just went back and the whip pics are now visible. Yikes. I'd better go hide with my missing block.
