    I have a baby quilt (warm wishes) started that I would like to get sandwiched today. Have to fit packing for camping into the day and later time at the motorcycle races, but will check in and out throughout to see how everyone else is doing. Thanks for organizing these days, they're fun!

    I have been washing and ironing fabrics for my Christmas projects since o'dark thirty. I have all the fabric for 5 Bow Tucks and 1 wall quilt done. Almost all the batik for a lap quilt done. I do have a binding to sew on a UFO that was one of my very first class projects. It's a small log cabin wall quilt. All quilted I just never put binding on. I may do that while more fabric is washing. Then it's to cutting all those Bow Tucks. Of course I may get side tracked and start on some blocks for another lap quilt, the center is all pre-cuts and it has been calling my name! LOL

    I am beginning to work on a batik fabric Sampler that is paper pieced and shown in Alex Anderson's updated paper piecing book. It's on the back cover of her book. I can't find a picture to link here.

Help! please look below, and tell me which you prefer. The blue/red block in the upper row is reversed in the 2 pictures. Do you like the symmetrical alternating light/dark (pic 1), or the all dark (pic 2) around the middle block?

    That's what I was thinking they look identical to me.

    Well, I have 4 of my 6 items done but they were the quick ones! The binding is done on the 3 quilts and I have the doll quilt done (even if it does look like a place mat!).

    I have to tell you that when I look at the pictures, I see no difference. Now that you pointed it out, I can find it. It is pleasing to the eye either way!

    I also see it now Krista. I really had to look for it so unless it bothers you I would just carry on.

    Just joining.

    I got my boomerang 8 fabric's all folded and stuffed into envelopes to mail out tomorrow. Can't wait to start getting the F8's from folks to start making blocks!

    The remainder of the day I'm going to do some applique on the baby quilt I'm working on. Pic below is sneak peek of one of the bunny's already completed. The butterfly is not done yet.

    The bunny was done with MUV's method of laying the applique fabric (plaid) on top of the quilt, then over that a sheet of paper (golden threads paper) with the image I want appliqued. I then stitch on the lines to get the bunny shape (I use a very small stitch). I then peel the paper away, and cut the plaid fabric around the bunny shape. I then added a few color contrasting spots on the bunny - this part is needle turn applique (ears, eye patch, and belly patch) using a batik. I then stitch around the edge with wool yarn. Then I frayed the edges of the bunny. All of the bunnies are different shapes, plaids, and I used a variety of stitches around the edge.

    Off to my garden bench on this BEAUTIFUL day to sit and listen to a book while I stitch bunnies!!

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
