    Re: Looking for block patterns

    I purchased my groovy board from Babylock/Tuscany headquarters in Fenton, Mo. I took a workshop there for my Babylock Crown Jewel II a little over four years ago.

    I just replied back Caroline :-) I'm running a little slow the last few days.

    Cool re the link. I've bookmarked it. Probably more of a summer purchase. The fuel bills are getting higher and higher now :-)

    Noel, Urban Elementz has a lot of different styles and sizes (borders and blocks too) of groovy boards (they call them "design boards"). Check them out

    They are secured to the back board of your quilt frame. I got sets of 2 types of boards with various patterns on the front and back of the boards. They come in sections so you insert them based on the width of the quilt you are doing. I got mine from Kathy Quilts when I purchased my BlockRocket. I suspect that Grace Company also carries them but there are other places they can be purchased too.

    I have the feather groovy board but have not used it. I use a lot of paper pantos.

    Right now I have one on the frame that I'm using a couple of Angela Walters rulers made by Creative Grids. They don't slip around like other rulers.

    We are getting ready for bad weather so if it hits, and we don't loose electricity, I will get some quilting done.

    So far the weather has been pretty good. Lots of 40's and above and it looks like this will continue at least to mid month. The house being caulked big time during painting and the new furnace seems to be working very well too :-)

    No I don't use rulers. I keep my quilting pretty basic and easy. Gasp..the quilting part isn't my favorite part. I stick mostly to the easy meandering, loops and such. I do have several "groovy" boards I use quite a bit. They're easy. The one I used on that quilt was a chevron pattern. I also use the scallop one quite a bit too. Another one has the serpentine. I'd use that more if I ever get the feathers working right :-)

    I'm doing good. Hope you are keeping warm with all this strange weather we have been experiencing. First warm, then cold, then warm again. Poor groundhog must be very confused!

    Are you using rulers with your longarm? Your quilt is beautiful and I noticed straight line quilting on it.

    justLyn, thank you. I think the first link will be very suitable. I could even incorporate some of the other stash items I have hanging around. Seems like a very flexible pattern. Thank you, thank you :-) I'm going to bookmark it so I don't lose it.

    Here are a couple of Jenny's that use a rail fence. The one with the 9 patch looks particularly suited to table runners.

    Do they resemble coin blocks now?
    Are they still 5” squares, or are they already cut into smaller sizes?
    I had used Stonehenge 2 1/2 " strips. Sewed three together and then cut them down into 5" squares.

    I don't know if you can see the 3 strip blocks in this but this was the original quilt I used that fabric with.
