    I just finished a birthday quilt for my cousin's 50th. There are about 20 photos in it, each the center of a star with each star being different. Then, I couldn't figure quite what to do so I made a kitty caddy and she is darling. I hemmed and hawed and finally decided to make a scrap quilt from squares I already had cut--2-1/2x6-1/2 and 2-1/2x2-1/2. Yesterday, I made all the individual blocks and today have started sewing them together into the pieced top. I think after I take the bread out of the oven, I'll go do some more. I'd like this to be a quick project that maybe I can get quilted soon.

    Two or three projects .... in the following order

    Make a sewing case for a QB swap. I need to purchase some wool for the inside.

    Purchase fabric for and make a chemo quilt for a good friend who had her first chemo treatment last week. Planning on a "jelly roll race" with bright colors (need to purchase) with an applique on top - a life size (or close to it) black silhouette of a woman in a sexy pose, and words appliqued in black. Won't tell you what it's going to say yet

    Finish the baby quilt for my 2nd grandchild due in October. I need to finish putting the rows together, buy the fabric for the applique, and sew the applique on.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I'm experimenting with different sizes of Disappearing 4 patch. I sewed a 12 inch, a 8 inch and a 6 inch. (finished sizes.) I like the 8 the best. Used the same fabrics for all 3. Going to do some donation quilts for kids with the 6 inch. Bit hard to sew as I'm wearing a neck collar due to my vertigo. That will pass in a day or so, than on to more sewing.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I happen to be on vacation next week, and I've set aside four whole days to do nothing but finish up several lap-sized quilts I've started but not finished. I also need to design a pair of similar-but-not-the-same quilts for my cousin's two boys (age 2 and 4) and hopefully get a start on those. I can't wait!

    I finished a queen sized quilt earlier this week and am making some clothes now. I also have a couple small quilts to finish.

    Just finished binding a donation quilt to a local Alzheimer's Walk group. It's the second one I've made and I am very glad it's almost ready to be handed over. I get bored easily and has learned while the first quilt is fun and exciting...the second one is not!

    Vertigo is no fun! Never heard of wearing a collar though. Maybe I don't have it often enough. Hope you feel better soon.

    Unfortunately I'm not working on a quilt. Instead I'm making a new canopy and cushion coverings for a swing. The canopy alone took 7 yards (56" wide) of fabric and the cushions over 4 yards. SOO glad when it's done!

    Finish binding June doll quilt and mail.
    Finish three other blocks promised.
    Press some new fabric I bought (all 50% off).
    Finish at least one block of the Dizzy Geese UFO.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
