    Anyone want to quilt with me today?

    To start the year off in a positive fashion, I've decided to work on UFOs today. Is anyone else quilting? What are you working on?

    I am going to set up my serger for a 3 thread rolled edge. I hate having to change needles in it.
    I started this week with putting magazines in old 3 ring binders, the mags have been sitting in stacks on the floor. I went to the thrift store Monday, bought 2 large binders, bleached them yesterday, so hope to get more off the floor and into a book case.
    oh yeah I just got my tri flo grease and lubricant, I need to clean my older serger and make it hum better.
    Ok another thing I hope to work, on, is putting fabric away, I bought the comic book boards several months ago and haven't completed that project, but I have worked on it a little at a time.

    yesterday I machine embroidered on burlap for the first time, but I need to read my SM manual and figured out how to join phrases, without having to re hoop all the time.
    and I need to take a nap later in order to be awake to watch the Sugar Bowl. RTR

    My sewing room is such a mess I can hardly function. I have been trying this week to get a handle on it so I can sew. I don't want to clean, I want to sew. Unfortunately, when I go in there to work on something, I get so frustrated looking for something I go back to the computer. I guess I need to put on my big girl pantes and CLEAN IT UP. Wish me luck.

    I'll be getting the borders on a lap quilt for a friend who is moving. Then I'd like to get it layered and start quilting it.

    I have a couple of tops done that need sandwiching. But first I have so many nice sized scraps of batting that need to be joined together to use them, so that is the task I have assigned myself today!

    I think I'll take today off. For the past week I've been working on a Medallion quilt. Have all the segments cut, blocked out, spaced, ready to sew. Did a final trial layout yesterday and I'm off by 1/2" in the center! Grrr. Maybe if I let it sit today that extra 1/2" will magically disappear and I can finish it tomorrow! Enjoy your day, ladies.

    I'm in, it's only 18 degrees here so no way that I am going any where today, so that makes it a quilting day.
    I am working on a UFO that was one of the very first quilt tops I made. About time right?

    I'm making Jenny Doan's Disappearing Hourglass #2 blocks. My goal is to finish at least 12 blocks today. Fortunately, the Sugar Bowl is tonight so that will not interfere my sewing today. Happy New year everyone!

    I'm working on a quilt that is well needed to be worked on I"m making a nine patch with rose fabric. It has been challenging since I have my kids home with me but I have been working on it a little at a time during the day. I can't wait to finish it I know it will be just beautiful. There is another one that I was working on but I sorta missed placed it so I guess when I'm not working on the rose quilt I'll be looking for the other one.

    I am in the process of finishing the piecing for a Christmas quilt, a scrap kit I got three years ago or more. I completed all the subunits at a retreat my ASG group had in early October; now I am putting the subunits together into the blocks. I tried something different thsi time - pressing my seams open, just to see how it would work. It didn't! I am having a dreadful time matching up the seams. Guess I learned my lesson on this! I am off work until 5 January, so I am determined to finish the top before I go back. Maybe I'll get it quilted during January!

    I'm in. I'm working on New Year's Day Mystery quilt. My brain is very muzzy yet - off to walk the dog, grab caffeine and then get started! Have a great day, everyone!

    I need to put my fabric away today that I pulled for my quilt I am currently working on. I made a deal with myself today, no quilting until chores or done so then it is off to vacuum and dust - then I get to quilt.

    I am having a tough time today - there is a 20 percent off everything in the store today at my LQS. I really don't need any fabric but I really want to go. . . . what to do

    Yes, I'm in. I will continue putting binding on a quilt that I finished quilting yesterday. I really surprised myself, as I always said I would never put a white binding on, but that is what I decided on. I really like the way it will finish this quilt. Then I have a block of the month for my guild, and then I will be deciding on my next quilt.

    I am one of those folks who can only do one project at a time...all the way until it is finished....before I start the next. I don't even have a quilt in mind. So, that will be fun...deciding my next. It can also be frustrating. We'll see which it is.

    Let me take a picture of where this the binding is on this quilt. Tell me if you think it will look as good as I think it will. (Well, taking the picture was a bit more challenging than I though...and I finally just stuck it back on my design wall. Ignore my quilt inspector. He always has an opinion.)

    I am working on a snowman wall hanging for my sister. Top nearly done. Just have the carrot nose and then eyes and mouth. Not sure about quilting. Usually just echo the item.

    Well, I'll get to sew, but will be working on some bags for my sister to take to Nicaragua on a mission trip in February. If my sweet DH gets the tree put up, I'll set up my basting table and start basting a couple of lap quilts that are READY!!!! I love using Sharon Schamber's basting method.... Happy Quilting everyone!!

    I have a new purse cut out so I may work on that. I always start a new quilt project on New Years Day. I am not a football fan.

    We've got very yukky weather today --drizzly, cold, dreary. After reading the post on scraps of 12/30, I may just grab a box of scraps and chop them up into usable pieces. I am so bummed by all that you people are doing with scraps and all I can do is worry about how I'll organize them. I've been "collecting" scraps since I began quilting in 1995 and have actually never used them in anything of importance. IF I could only get off the runway with leaders/enders piecing, that would be progress.
    One step at a time, always forward.
