Here is what I have done so far...I am one block short. so bummed...not sure what I will do yet. thinking maybe to add a block of just flowers in each cornor and then I will just have one that I will not beable to use. maybe I will make it into a pillow. I need to cut my white strips and sew, sew, sew.

    Good Morning! I really enjoy these quilting days with all of you. I am just having my coffee and reading the Board, then plan on spending the majority of the day going through a tote of fabric that was given to me, it needs to be ironed, trimmed and refolded to fit my storage shelves. Then I would like to work on an applique/free motion machine embroidery project or finish up my first hand appliqued block.

    Here are pictures.

    Don't know how much quilting I am going to get done today. My main goal today is to go fabric browsing for a quilt for my nephew who is getting married next month. But i definitely want to get something done today even if it is just sewing a few blocks together that i found last night. I picked this up at a rummage sale already pieced and am going to just sew them together for a scappy.

    Just after 6 am here and I am busy washing fabrics that I collected on our vacation. Then I need to choose a baby quilt pattern & get started so hopefully will have something to show later in the day.

    I've got a scrappy quilt I want to work on. Part of the day will be devoted to picking plums so don't know how much I'll get done.

    I won't be here all day as it is Picture with your Pet to support the local animal shelter and I have a Sociology midterm tomorrow! Ugh!

    Checking in. Still in bed with coffee reading QB. I love lazy beginnings to the day. When I do get up, I plan to try to finish a quilt for my son made of 35 friendship star variation blocks. Each block has 8 HSTs and a fussy cut center square so just getting ready to put blocks together has been a lot of work. I do have 3 of the 7 rows sewn together thanks to my work yesterday so I have hope that I might finish. Need to finish my coffee and get to work.

    I'll report progress later (I hope) :-)

    They usually run $1.99 or so at JoAnns for one, $.99 cent if you can get them on sale. Someone on this board had mentioned Tuesday Morning, so stopped at a different, bigger store and got these. Wish I didn't forget to put my debit card back in my wallet, would have bought a lot more. But, could be a good thing I didn't have it too. Will post a pick of them all later.

    Okay I'm finally up and at it after sleeping in way to late. I'll be working on a diamonds quilt. 8 inch diamonds finished. I've never sewn together diamonds, always used the strip method and the diamonds were much smaller. This time they will be cut from fat quarters so no strip sets. I'll post the progress. First thing is to drag out the design board that I keep hidden in the rec. room. Maybe one more cup of coffee.....see you in an hour or so with my progress.

    Virtual Quilting Day 7-15-12

    Here is what I'm doing instead of what I am supposed to be doing! The border of the quilt is my goal today. The purpose of the quilt is to use up scraps and it is working. Only one fabric repeated so far.

    I put a quick tutorial in my album so any one can go there to see how incredible easy this is to do. The album is in 2 parts cause I couldn't get it to load all of them in one album!? Also the pics loaded in reverse order so work backwards! Like I usually do anyway.

    This is much more impressive than I thought it would be so to use up more of my tons of scraps I am going to start making some more in tone on tones, I think this pattern would look cool in all scraps of all one color. All reds, all blues, all yellows, all greens, etc.

    enjoy! Please show off your VQD accomplishments.

    We should have a special place for this thread.

    The pattern was free from McCalls Quilting in 2008. It came as a free gift after getting the magazine.

    I will be going to chuch in a few minutes, I am the organist for today. Then home for a lite lunch and then back up to
    the sewing room to do some more work on the segments for #3 French Braid. I hope to get that one finished and a
    start on the #4 one. I worked yesterday on this so I am really hoping to get a lot done with two days of working in sewing room. Hope everyone has a wonderful day. it is hot, hot, here, so I will be running a fan along with air as my sewing room is on the second floor of my house, and it is never as cool as downstairs.

    Getting my coffee on right now then hoping to finish piecing a lap quilt for my grandmother, shouldn't be too difficult, it is just a fence rail but the flu is trying to knock me back down so I may end up back in bed instead of in the sewing room

    I hope to join everyone this afternoon. We have to make a trip to Menards in a town about 45 minutes away...so we'll probably do lunch, too. Oh, and I might make my hubby stop at Joann's for

    Our theme for the upcoming school year is "Patriotic." The grade level teachers are supposed to come up with matching t-shirts and tend to coordinate classroom items as well. Since I teach music, I'm with the art, PE, and library teachers. We all get a long great and I am in charge of the t-shirts (applique of a paw print with red and white striped fabric for the pad of the paw and blue star fabric for the top parts) and I also told them I would do wall hangings for our doors. So far I have one shirt and one wall hanging completely finished.

    Today I want to finish hand sewing the binding to the back of the second wall hanging and I need to sew the border around the 3rd wall hanging, sandwich, and get started hand quilting it.

    Sorry for the huge picture!
