|There it is again!|
Now, let's admit. When you first saw this block, you did one or more of these things:
1. Said "Huh."
2. Were freaked out that there were purple eyeballs looking at you.
3. Questioned Quiltmaker's screening processes.
4. Wondered when I had entered my Aztec phase.
Having only a vague recollection of creating this block, but knowing I own a quilt top where these scraps came from so I can believe it, I did all four, so don't feel badly if you did as well. Especially if you didn't have the proof in your home that I could have created it.
|Here's your proof - the Carpenter's Star I made a million years ago with Debby Maddy's (Calico Carriage) awesome pattern, and while I love it, I still haven't gotten around to quilting it.|
|Looks like I have a new project.|
If I'm not your first stop, you know the drill....two issues to give away to winners, all you have to do is leave me a comment telling me how many projects you have going currently. An estimate is fine, because let's face it, we all have too many and I'm not about to spend time coming to your house to actually count, because my current 9 projects will not allow me the time.
All entrants will not only be entered to win one of the issues, but also, because I really appreciate you even coming to see this blog with such a strange block entry, as a thank you, every commenter will receive a coupon code to my web store -use it or don't, it's really just a thank you because I appreciate you being here, and it's also a way for you to double check that you are NOT a no reply blogger. MAKE SURE I have a way to e-contact you, and if you don't receive an email from me (email@example.com) with your coupon code within 18 hours of your posting (I do sleep, and time zones funkify my work hours compared to your posting hours sometimes) you might want to double check your no-reply status. Because no-reply means you can't win not only my issue giveaways, but anyone else's either! Who needs that?
Thanks for stopping by! Good luck!
At the moment I have tour projects.
Just found your blog and am enjoying reading your posts.
I'm not sure exactly how many projects I have going right now, so I'll just go with a dozen 😄
Yup, I was wondering about the eyeballs, but I love the Indian Corn design.....the eyeballs disappeared.
Have a great day,
I have several projects in the works, but one that I absolutely must finish soon.
You are so funny! Keep up the good work. I have too many projects to count and usually just turn circles in my sewing room trying to decide where to start!
I have probably around 7 projects going. Probably 3 are hand applique and another is a BOM. Congrats on having your block in the 100 block magazine and thanks for a chance to win a copy.
It was fun to read how you came up to your blog.Lol! I really love the quilt version with it! Works in progress, oh my, plenty, lots of stitcheries and about 5 quilts waiting to be quiltet and and....I think I love both ver much : start a new project and finish up an old one. It probably depends on time and ma own mood.Lol!
Hugs from Switzerland
Currently, I have 7 projects I'm working on. Three of them I just have to quilt.
Three I am currently hand piecing, 4 I am machine piecing, and about 80 waiting to be quilted.
I have way too many projects to count! But one with a deadline this week. Always love catching up on your blog. And I really hope I win because no stores carry the magazine out here in the boonies!
I've got too many to even estimate. I inherited lots of UFO's from some friends and I'm making them into wall hangings to send to ovarian cancer groups around the country. I've moved and have a new email. Have to resubscribe to your blog. Your teal friend, Diane firstname.lastname@example.org
I have about four projects atvthe moment and probably 12 UFO's. And if course, this doesn't include all the things on my want-to-do list!
I currently have 6 projects in the works. This way I can choose what to work on, depending on my mood. Ha! Congratulations on being chosen for the magazine and thank you for sharing with us. cknapp3626(at)sbcglobal(dot)net
I currently have Gypsy Wife quilt (Piecing it at the moment). I also am hand quilting "the green quilt" and need to machine quilt two others. I have a cross stitch project all ready to go. So, I guess I have five? Thank you for a chance to win and CONGRATS!
I have at least 8 active projects and too many old ones to count (I don't have that many fingers and toes). Congrats on being in another Quiltmaker's 100.
congratulations. what a fun block. right now i only have three projects going.
1) PP Star Wars place mats for Christmas for my son and daughter in law
2) PP chickadee place mats for us
3) crochet mug wrap for my husbands civil war mug

With bindings, I have 8 projects going, 4 of them binding...
I just have two projects....a pieced charity quilt that I'm making and an embroidery project that just seems to sit there..apparently I'm not into embroidery at the moment :-)
Congrats on having your block included! Thanks for the giveaway!
I am actively working on 4 quilts, but have many more started. I am trying to complete a quilt a week, which includes going back and completing those UFO's.
Right now, I have four "active" projects. One is waiting for the long-arm quilting and I'm hand sewing the binding on one, so looks like I can drag another project out of my UFO pile and get working on it as well. I have some tops waiting for f.m. quilting.
I have 4 projects on my works-in-progress shelf, which absolutely need to be done. Then there's the closet with numerous UFOs. Counting them would be depressing, so I haven't.
Love the Indian Corn Block! I need a copy.
To quilt: one twinish-sized top, one table runner and one charity quilt that I haven't even looked at yet. To sew: Yeah, right. Can't count that high!
I always seem to have several projects in the works. I am currently trying to finish a baby quilt for the arrival of my first grandbaby :-)
I have 2 to bind and am working on a Brown and White Bear Paw for me. You should be proud of yourself - love your block. Thank you for being a part of QM's 100 Blocks and giving us this chance to try and win that fantastic magazine.
A couple are blocks of the month and some are scrap ones and then the leader ender, so in total I think I count 8. Wow, I need to get busy and finish something.
At least 2 in the works, and tons in want to make that. 24Tangent@gmail.com
I have too many to count. Some tops are pieced, some ready to be quilted and some waiting to be started. Congratulations on being chosen and thanks for the chance to win.
I had to put all of my projects on hold--I'm packing to move from Washington back to Texas--yea!
I ran into fabrics with chemistry related themes: chemical equations, the periodic table, beakers, molecules, etc. that simply had to be mine. Right now I'm trying to design a pattern to use these prints to make two wall hangings - one for me and one for my best friend - to commemorate our time in grad school where we met. We're both chemical engineers. Thanks for the chance to win!
Really cute block. I'm really enjoying seeing the blocks in this issue and reading about the creators and processes. Thanks for sharing. I have lots and lots of unfinished projects. I have no problem starting more. Since the first of the year, I have finished 20 twin size quilts for charity, so getting some things done. Diane O email@example.com
Interesting block with definite potential - it definitely has your "quirkiness" factor. I really only have 4 projects in progress - and that includes the one that is just a fabric & pattern pull at this point and the one waiting to be quilted.
You have a way with words! I would not have seen a block staring at me if you hadn't mentioned it. Now I can't get it out of my mind.
Six! Not counting UFO'S!
Six! Not counting UFO'S!
I have at least 7 projects in some stage of production. I have quilting ADHD. Love your block.
Three and have a great day
i'm very embarrassed to say that i have over 30 projects in various stages of completion. some i am actively working on, and some have been sitting on a shelf for years. i find i often lose interest if something doesn't speak to my soul
I probably could count 6 projects I am actively doing at the moment. Thanks for sharing your block.
I like your block - didn't look like eyeballs to me! Projects well....many too many to count....I have a huge investment in clear plastic containers crammed with partially completed UFOs....mumbird3atgmaildotcom
Very funny post, but those purple eyes look pretty cool in your mock-up! I have lots of projects going, so I'm going to guess and say under 12--maybe 10, or maybe 11?!? I so have the attention span of a gnat, so....
Cool block! It's so tempting, but my many, many projects (at least 7!) must keep me from starting it.
I didn't see it as eyeballs before but I do now. Love the colors and the pattern. It definitely made me stop for a longer look. Congratulations on your pattern acceptance.
I didn't see eyeballs, I saw diamonds. I really like your block, especially in the mock up you showed. I only have 3 projects going right now. 1 hand and 2 machine ones. I guess I am very project oriented, I like to finish a project before I start another one usually. Thanks for the giveaway.
I'm a beginner quilter, and I have one quilt in progress. It's been in progress a while, and when I hit retirement soon, I want to pull it out and work on it!
Thanks for the mock-up, as it really changed my perception of the pattern.
Jan - firstname.lastname@example.org
Well, I am sure I have well over 20 projects started and dozens more that I need to start.
Well, errr I have about 15 started projects. Six are the same thing... isolate covers for neonatal ICU. So, should I really say 10? ;-)
Sometimes repetition is the best when it comes to utilizing a block. Projects in the works: actively: five. UFOs, lets just say there is more than one word processing page listing them.
Over 20 Wips, but three projects are currently in active process on the table!
Love it! How many projects? Conservatively 15+ maybe? Does it tell you anything about me that I'm taking 6 projects to a 48-hour retreat later this month (4pm Friday to 4pm Sunday) and I keep wanting to add more projects to the list? And nothing I'm taking will probably get done. It tells me that I have a hard time saying NO to starting new projects and a hard time saying FINISH to projects that have been started!
andiraes @ gmail . com
Interesting block. I think it will change with different colors. I have way too many projects to count. Let's say all the fingers and all the toes have been used and there are still some not counted!!! rmgsummers @ yahoo . com
I would say that I have about 5 projects really in progress, with lots of kits/patterns waiting patiently in the queue! I love the way your block looks when put all together!
I have eight in progress and about six on the table to be cut. I am totally out of control. crystalbluern at tds dot net
At least 25, in different stages. If I see an example I like, or get an idea for a WIP, I pull that one out and try it. If it works, I finish that stage, or maybe the quilt, if I can go on from there.
I agree! Does remind me of Indian Corn!! You are sooo Creative!! Love it..grrrreat job!! :)
Have 6 projects that I am working diligently on now...and about 3 or so others that are waiting! giggle...
Thank you for chance to win your give-a-way too! :) Now am off to ramble thru your blog...lovin it! :)
Let me take a stab at this UFO question. I have 8 quilts (various sizes) are waiting to be quilted. I also help my mom finish hers so we're not even counting them.
I like your block, and especially the way it looks set in the quilt design! I probably have at least 5 UFOs hanging around, plus various projects going on a monthly basis. It would be scary to actually count!
Does the count include finished tops that haven't made it to an actual completed quilt? If it does, then I have about 200 UFO's. This needs to be a new resolution for me - complete more quilts than starting new tops. Oh look - a wonderful new design like Indian Corn! Let's go make a new quilt! :-)
I probably have about 5 projects in the started phase, and many more in the project box collection of materials phase!!

I have 15 projects started. Most of them the quilt top is pieced, but now needs to be quilted. But, I am slowly going through these and getting them completed.
I have 6 projects going! All different stages of completion. Am also designing 2 specials. Love your block. It does remind one of Indian Corn when it is put into a full quilt. I am growing Indian corn in my rock garden. Also antique artichoke.
I have five projects currently on. I also have seven more UFO's on my going to get done by the end of this year list. My Round Robin was number four on that list!
Too many to count! At least nine, but determined to finish them in the future. Like the block in the quilt, but didn't as a single block. Well done.
Unquilted tops, about 10. Projects started but not finished, about 8. Projects that I have specifically bought fabric and pattern for but not started, about 5. Ideas in my head, innumberable!
Quilts that are actually being stitched upon: six. The rest are too numerous to count, so I'm going to blaze through these six (hah!) and then pick out another half-dozen...
P.S. I'm so glad you showed us your blog "in context", so to speak. It is really quite different in a quilt than it appears on its own.
I love your block, and I LOVE your sense of humor!
No projects except crocheting ones right now. 😥
I like this block when you showed it in multiples... thanks for the chance to win... I would guess I have 3 in progress so probably if I took time to look I have 12... and of course fabric bought for more....
Let me see...I finished one last week, working on yet another baby quilt (for a granddaughter due in July), a foundation pieced project, and a fused applique wall hanging. Hand embroidery on crazy quilt blocks that I'm afraid to count, probably 40 or so.
Wow! I love your block! It will make a beautiful quilt. I currently have 4 projects that are on going each month. I do however have lots of UFOs.
Thanks for a chance to win.
HAHA ya i have about 10 quilts in motion right now......lol.... email@example.com
I have six projects going on at this time. Ouch! Your block is exciting.
Your block is great! I think I have about 7 projects going on right now, and more insisting to get started!
I have at least 10 projects in work. Congratulations on your block being selected.
I have at least 10 projects in work. Congratulations on your block being selected.
I am working on a quilt to be a high school graduation gift for a young man who is Autistic. As far as UFO's go, I have enough to keep me busy for a while.....!
I am working on the Splendid Sampler, 2015 Mystery Design BOM and working on a quilt back for Alletaire Mystery quilt. This keeps me busy!
I don't know exactly how many projects I have going -- maybe a dozen? I have just finished two quilts that came up suddenly and had to be done quickly to be given as gifts. Now I need to remember exactly what I was in the middle of when I took that detour.
I have 7 projects waiting for me to finish this summer and two sew along!.
I like the Purple Eyes!
I have 10 projects - true confession! Thank you!
I'm afraid to count. Let's just pretend it's 10-ish, okay?
Way too many projects, but 4 less than I did a month ago--it was a good month for finishing projects!
Last year I worked my tail off to finish about 14 quilts that had been ufo's for too long. Currently I just have two quilt tops to quilt that I made this winter. I am trying to stay on top of things.
I just finished up a bunch and I have 4 more.
I like your humor; your block is very versatile and I can see it would be fun to make. I have one big quilt project going, and some UFO's waiting for attention. I also have 2 qal's that I am way behind on, but will definitely get to.
I, too, have a bunch of projects going, all in various stages from still making blox to just tack that binding down. so 17 ... half in tops done or sandwiched.
I am currently actively working on about 8 projects right now. Three need to be finished by end of this month. Talk about pressure.

Congratulations on your winning block! Indian Corn would make a perfect project for the fall. I am currently working on 4 quilting projects. Thanks for the great giveaway. bhometchko(at)hotmail(dot)com
Congrats on getting your block in. I have 10+ projects waiting. Stopped several so I can practice FMQ.
Thanks for giveaway.
djcutting2 at gmail dot com
I like your block and really like how it came together in EQ. I'm thinking of adding it to my projects to get done before Autumn, use Halloween colors and call it Candy Corn. If I do that I will have 12 projects that need to be finished. Rina
Funny about the purple eyes! I didn't even notice them until you said it. I saw flying geese going in different directions. I like the Indian corn look too.
I do like how your block turned into a really neat quilt. I use to only do one project at a time, but now with classes, small groups etc. I probably have about 14 quilts or so under construction. About 6 just waiting for me to get around to quilting them.
I'm afraid to count. They are in various stages. But I'd guess about 10. Thanks for the chance to win and congrats on being in the issue.
I have at least 10 projects in the works.
you are very funny !...currently I have five projects in the work...looks like I am in good company.Also few others in my mind...thank you...marta...firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for a chance to win. I currently have about a dozen quilt projects that I could work on, as well as a cross stitch project and a crochet doll that I could quickly finish in about two hours.
Thank you for the chance to win. I have 3 projects going right now.
I didn't see the eyeballs until you mentioned it! No really, it's a great block and Indian Corn is fitting! I have WAY too many projects to count!
Currently, I have 4 projects going! One just needs the label, so almost down to 3. :) Thanks for the giveaway!
I have three quilts ready for binding. 5 table toppers pinned and ready for quilting. One quilt half way quilted. 2 sew-along mystery projects. AND one medallion quilt that I am designing/making up as I go. About 11 too many.
I have 3 projects going currently - I'm not counting the piles of quilt tops waiting to be quilted, since I'm not actively working on them. Love your block. Thanks.
Unfortunately you didn't specify just quilting... oh what to do???? Should include knitting projects? tatting projects that are still on the shuttle?? bobbin lace projects still on the pillow?? Sewing projects?? or just quilting --- for sanity sake I'll say that I have 11 quilting projects in various stages of completion :)
I know I'm not the worestest.....Kaylace@bellsouth.net
I would have to guess I have about 15 projects that need finishing. Some need piecing, some need binding, and some need to be quilted. Someday they will be complete.
Ah, unfinished projects. Quilting-wise, maybe 4 or 5--some dating back to the 70's. I just uncovered the appliqued blocks for an animal baby quilt for my oldest son (he's in his 40's now!). If I count small pillow-type projects, maybe 5 or 6 more. Of course, there are also the 5 or 6 unfinished afghans, the unfinished knit socks, the unfinished scarves, hats, etc. I am seriously infected with start-itus.
My biggest problem is getting a longarmer found that's not too busy, so I would say 4, last 2 are bargelloes and one of the others is a set of 24 Christmas blocks that I received many years ago and now I am putting in friendship star cornerstones, so putting it altogether awaits me. Thanks for the interesting block. Kathy in colo repzjratplainsdotnet
I enjoyed your commentary on your block. I didn't see spooky purple eyes until you mentioned it, though. I hope I don't have nightmares!
I've actually been keeping track for the last year and a half of unfinished and in-progress projects. I'm at 20 right now; 9 of these are just waiting to be quilted.
I have at least 10 projects that need finishing. I missed the eyes till you told me. I am old you know.
I would guess I have close to 20 projects, ranging from "i spend a zillion hours appliqueing these blocks & now have no ideas what to do with them" to neat plastic bins with all the materials needed with a pattern, but no action taken. Your blogs always give me a smile. and yes I immediately noticed the purple eyeballs. pjrquilter (at) msn (dot) com
I think I have 9 quilt tops and their backing so, ready to quilt. I have a quilt top almost finished--needs borders. I have a Hawaiian style appliqué project going on constantly, and another 2 projects started. and so many more that I want to do!
I think I have about 7 quilt tops in various stages. I also have 2 tops waiting to be sandwiched and quilted. Not too bad. But, I haven't started my granddaughter's graduation quilt. It's in one month. Yikes!
I couldn't begin to count the UFO's, but the ones that are currently sitting in my sewing room # only 4!! That's pretty good for me. Love your block! Congrats on getting into the magazine. Must be a thrill!
I have 5 things in progress, not counting all the flimsies I have waiting to be quilted. And there are so many projects I want to start but I'm practicing a little self control. We'll see how long it holds.
Just one project at the moment- a roman blind for my brother's house x
Iain.ross30 at gmail dot com
At the moment I have three projects going. My favorite is the t-shirt quilt for a High School Graduate. It's coming along really well.
2 that I'm actively working on, but a probably 10 more that I'm not.
jen dot barnard at btinternet dot com
I'm not about to waste precious time counting my UFOs, but I would estimate I have at least 25. And that's just the quilting projects!
projects…hmmmm…. too many…. 7? maybe, plus house/attic renovations ongoing… so they count times 5 right? Love your block, and my word of the day will be….. (drumroll)…..funkify!!!! Love it!
at least 4 but many more in the planning stages! tljeo(at)yahoo(dot)com
at least 4 but many more in the planning stages! tljeo(at)yahoo(dot)com
Along with the Splendid Sampler, I have a wedding quilt to complete and 4 baby quilts in the works. Thanks, love your "Indian Corn" block. Thanks.
In this house, I have 5 projects going. In my other house, at least 15. That's the problem with having two houses! More room to store. Thanks for the chance to win the magazine. Nice block!
I am happy to say that my ufo baskets are overflowing. Good guess is about 20 or so. Thanks Beth!
Love the purple eyeballs.....Right now I am working on 2 quilt projects......turning an embroidered dragon into a wallhanging........and enlarging a dragon for an applique quilt to go with the wallhanging....the dragon was a window cling that I traced to make for the quilt.....you're block is really cool....
What a fun block and I do like the spot of purple in it! That color isn't used enough. I think that I have about 7 or 8 projects that are not finished. Just too many neat blocks to try and not enough time to finish putting the results together. But they sure are fun to look at and dream...and then Quiltmaker comes out with another and then there are even more to make! It is endless! Thanks so much for sharing.
I have a four projects going right now. Hopefully I will get one of them finished soon before I start another one. You gave me a good laugh with your purple eyeball comment. Your block looks like fun to make.
I'm afraid to count my works in process! There are a minimum of ten and probably more "in hiding"! Love your honesty and thanks for letting many of us know we are not alone :-)
I have 3 working now may start another one next week. Lena_scarborough@yahoo.com
Including tops that need quilted, I would estimate that I have about 10 projects in various stages of completion.
I like your block and the purple!! Thanks for the nice design!! I have about 7 "on the go" UFOs right now along with about 10 "have to do soon" that are patiently waiting! :) It is so much fun to play with fabric!!!
Maybe two or three actually going, but so many in my head! email@example.com
Interesting - how different the block looks with others.
I currently have 2 projects in progress, plus a quilt top that needs backing, batting, etc.
I've got 3 big projects going. One is almost done but I keep putting off finishing it. Why? Because I'm always eager to start the next project!
Oh my goodness - such a fun blog post! :o) Indian Corn does make for a great scrap quilt. I'm having such a good time visiting all the blogs on the tour. My block, Flowers for the Cabin, is also in Vol. 13 and I just love reading the story behind the blocks for the other designers.
You are too funny! I happen to like your Purple Eyeballs block and would consider making a whole bunch of them to sew together into a quilt. I'm counting 3 projects that I have going right now. Then there's about 200 more that I want to make swimming around in my head. Will I live long enough?
