    Dedicated to my SISTER Fraew. (she should be my sister) My FIRST finish of 2013.

    I am making 29 scrappy quilts out of my MIL's stash. She's 90years old and was worried about what would become of her treasure. I suggested quilts for each of her children and grandchildren. I will name them all "From Grandma's Closet".

    This pattern is from the http://www.quiltingboard.com/blocks-...e-t209515.html hosted by PaintMeJudy. Sorry it's so bright.. but it is...bright... lol yipee fuchsia! This was my first ever attempt at free-motion quilting. I was sooo scared! It all puckers in the wash though so... (That's going to be my motto for the next 28 quilts...It all puckers in the wash...) I quilted stars and swirls in the star, free motion in the 9patches and a heart/flower/heart in the sashing. It was my second attempt at mitered binding. I was nervous through the whole sewing process. It's almost like grandma's fabric whispers to me. I remember many of the pieces.

    Thank you Fraew for all your support!!!

I really am going out there right NOW...... NOW..... but it's cold out there..but I need to start dinner...NO NO NO. RIGHT NOW!

    Cosy get out there and get busy. Once you get going, you'll warm up.

    Dinner? Haven't you heard the saying, "I learned how to quilt and forgot how to cook!"??

    Now get going!!!

    Dublb - I love your blue & yellow blocks! That is one of my favorite color combinations.

    I'm working on a Christmas table topper tonight... one of 2 leftover Christmas projects on my January UFO list. Here's how it looked this afternoon while I was picking more charms for even color distribution, tonight it is halfway assembled. Small project - 4 x 12 Stretched Star block layout. There are 2 of each block laid out in the picture. All of the fabrics have touches of gold metallic on them.

    Here is the next UFO I'm tackling. It's been waiting simply because I want to do cross-hatching in the background area around the circles, so I ordered an extension table for my long arm. Well, it arrived yesterday - and it DOESN'T FIT! Argh! Back it goes I guess (I hope - I did some damage trying to force it to fit so we'll see what they say). But now, I am tired of waiting, and this UFO was so excited about getting loaded up, that I've decided to bite the bullet and do the ruler work without the extension table. Wish me luck!

    I did an Arrowhead Block usin' CJ Momma's technique. Then I worked way inta the night on a block that I kinda drew up. When I got ready ta sew it up the 2 sides were different sizes!! I had changed sewin' machines & had different "1/4' " seam allowances. I was ready ta toss it out the window. I got up taday & took up those pesky seam allowances. Horray! It went right tagether. The block is soakin' ta git the paper solvy off o' it. I'll post picts o' both o' "em when I git this one cleaned up & pressed.

    I got a good start on my UFO for February. It is one of the 2 twin size quilts I am making from my FW Pony Club blocks. Here is the progress I made today...blocks laid out, cut sashing and squared up blocks. Then started sewing blocks together. I will put a wider blue border between the middle and the top/bottom to center it with the sides....then add borders around the outside to finish. Probably won't get to work on it again until next week.

    Before and after...

    Oh my, everyone's projects are so wonderful!! And getting completed, hooray! I would like to join in; I have about 6 tops to quilt/bind, a couple might need borders so I'll ask for opinions when I get there. I also have a couple sets of finished blocks that need to be made into quilts.

    Since I missed January, my goal for February is to complete this top, my Scrappy Stars. It got set aside because I needed fabric for the back, which I recently purchased, so now there is no excuse. Next time you see this one, it will be D O N E!

    Great idea! I have my circle quilt to bind (tonight I hope) and my pink star to quilt & bind before the end of the month. I'm going to try some freehand feathers on my long arm. Let's see how that goes

    Thanks for the nice compliments. I worked on the back today, using some of the scraps leftover on the front for the back. Hope to get it on my HQ16 tonight. I am not real experienced at the quilting aspect, not sure what I will do yet. I usually wait until I get it on the frame to decide. Hopefully will have something to show by the end of the weekend.

    Keep sharing your progress! I need the inspiration.
