    Had my first cup of coffee, getting ready for church but when I return I will be finishing hand sewing the binding on a quilt I am taking to my daughter next week in Erie, PA. I will post a pic after church....I love virtual sewing. It gets me motivated.

    You bet. Each triangle is made of a colour (cut from a 4.5" strip) plus a 1" cut border piece.

    I'm back from early church and checking in. When today's date was announced, I thought I'd do the third week of the Jelly Roll Quilt Along today; but when the instructions arrived Friday, I couldn't wait. With that completed, I thought I'd make my September applique block for Merry, Merry Snowmen today. I started getting things together for it yesterday and by 11:00 last night that was completed. Before church, I pressed the block and joined it to several others and started my project for today. My goal now is to make the September applique block for an Autumn BOM that I am doing. I started tracing the pieces and was able to get all but 10 traced before leaving. I want to get the remaining pieces cut out before having to leave to go exercise. Once exercise is over, I can spend the remainder of the day at the virtual retreat. I'd love to complete the block today but that may be too large a goal. I so enjoy seeing what all of you are doing!

    Ditto to Pat625's comment on the darling heart block!! I'm presenting a program to our club on scrap blocks in two weeks -- do you mind if I use your idea, Thimblebug? Today I am finishing sashing on a BOM I'm working on and hopefully sewing it all together, Have the first border here, but have to go back to the store for the second and third. I think I know what I want, but waiting till it is in one piece to make sure. Have a great day, everyone.

    Thimblebug, love your heart. Kristakz, thanks for posting your block. Is that like a OBW? I finished my first clue for my mystery. 32 HST in 2 different sizes. Don't know how many clues or when they will be coming so I decided not to work on B&W quilt because I didn't want to have to change thread all the time so I am going to work on trimming some HST that I have made for another quilt and enlarging some house blocks that I had for another quilt but are using in a different quilt instead. Hope that made sense.

    Morning everyone, it's actually 4.10pm here. These are the things I plan to do today, its actually quite long but I really need to get busy to finish up some WIPs that have been hanging around for too long.

    1. Finish applique on 16 blocks - done
    2. piece 8 block column x 2 - done
    3. join six columns together - done
    4. cut out first border
    5. join first border
    6. cut out second border
    7. join second border

    This is a twin quilt and I am making two I have already pieced the blocks for the second quilt and so need to cut out the applique pieces and applique the 48 blocks . I am planning on cutting out the applique pieces and sewing on labels to two finished quilts whilst watching Downton Abbey tonight.

    As you can see have already done a lot, been out for lunch with hubby and called in to see a friend's new gd. Having a cup of tea and posting now. I always have trouble with pictures so once I have borders done will have a go to see if I can post the quilt top.

    Lovely work everyone, I have just completed a scrappy heart block for my sampler, they are so cute.

I bought the Moda Monster bash jelly roll and want to try the 3 Dudes quilt pattern from Missouri Quilt company. Will check in around noon
    I work at 5 AM everyday, so a good side effect of that is that I wake up early on the weekends too!! Here is a pic of one of my blocks, this isn't a new one I made today, but it shows the backdrop i painted.



    Cheers!
