    Rachel...the top looks great, and I really like the colors you chose. I finished half the blocks and have them pressed. I am trying to finish the rest tonight. Then tomorrow I can put the top together..It's not a difficult pattern, but I have to be real careful with the one fabric that the design runs the same way. Probably anothe 2 hours and all the blocks will be done. That is IF I stay focused LOL...

    Yes, I'm seriously cutting them at 1.25 inches and there's a lot of them. I switch colors every so often just so the lines stop blurring together. All total I have to cut: 150 denim, 152 pink, 602 white, 152 blue, 152 lavendar/lilac, and 152 multi color prints in those colors. And then when all the tiny squares are cut, I have to cut 122 white squares that are 3.5 inches and then I can sew. I can't sew strips and then cut them down to size because each 9 patch square in each row only has 1 of each color in it except for the white. So...that's a lot of little squares to form 1 crib sized quilt.

    All the blocks are now done and pressed...Will construct the top tomorrow and see if I need any borders to make it the size I want. Of course that means a fuin trip to Joannes!! Or maight have to go to downtown to check what is left at the LQS that is in the process of closiong. Definitely would do this again..It is fun to take a break and check on other people's progress!!

    I am working on a wall-hanging titled "Dancing Tree" by Bryerpatch Studio. I got the pattern at the Dallas Quilt show. Great show! This is an applique pattern and all I have to do now is iron it onto the background and start qppliqueing.

    I can't help with your piecing but I think the pictured quilt could be motivation enough. I love it. Awesome work.
    Keep going right on through to the end. Excited to see the completed work!

    And I have started making stars for this quilt:



    I am working on these at the same time, using the stars as leaders and enders while I put the other quilt together. I have 5 more large blocks on the top one to make and my goal is to finish them all today. Anyone want to quilt with me?? I thought if we all set our goals for the day today down here and check in every hour to show/state our progress maybe we can actually get something accomplished!!!

    Post here if you want to play along, I am going to go take some pics of the progress I have so far to post and show you guys. When you post, state your goals for the day so we can know how we are progressing!!

    Goals for Sunday 4/1/2011
    Finish last 5 blocks for Flying in Squares
    Piece 10 stars for Star Quilt

    What's your goal?? It's 9:00 AM(ish) right now where I am, so I figure we will check in every hour or two hours?

    Anyone can join us any time today too!! I just want us to all inspire each other to reach some sort of quilting goal today!!

    Cheers!!
    Rachel
    Well I noticed that you started this on Sunday, It's now Monday and I just got the QB newsletter so you're probably all done by now! I've been to the gym for aqualates and strength training and will get to the sewing machine after lunch. It's a good incentive to include others!

    Wow, wish I had joined yesterday! I made a tumbler quilt top Saturday and worked on the backing yesterday. Decided for backing to use charms 2 wide, 16 long as a stripe off center to extend the fabric the number of inches I needed. This quilt is a donation for Habitat for Humanity that my employer will be constructing on the 20th. I would much rather swing a needle than a hammer! The quilts shown are so inspiring, love them!
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    Finally got the quilt top together..The original pattern from a 2004 magazine was for a lap quilt. I enlarged the patterns and added strips and borders to make it full size. Now still have to decide on a back...I really would like to use my stash, but not sure if I have anything I would like...Really want to use up a lot of my stash, so I can go buy more!! LOL

    That quilt was just made using the wonky star pattern, but interlocking the stars. You can find a quilt along for this style here:

    http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransso...h-quilt-along/

    It's a different take on a pattern that's been around forever. (The wonky star gained popularity when it was used for the Bush Fire Relief quilts some years back)

    I hope that helps!!

    I just read your quilt challenge. It sounds like fun! Maybe I can join next time. I made three scrap string pieced strip quilt tops this weekend sized 43 x 61. I love doing that. They are made entirely from cast off fabric that would have gone to the landfill if I hadn't used it. The scraps were given to me by several people and guild offerings. Now to get them quilted.
    I have lost count of the tops I have to be quilted for Linus.
