    Love your helpers! What breed is cooper?, he kinda looks like mine (my avatar), but a bit smaller I think. He is 5 months old in the pic, was taken on the 4th day we had him, 7/12/09, had knee surgery, so remember the date!

    Well after drying and ironing the white muslim that I have I think its too thin...you can see through it. I have used it for backing which worked well but I do not think it would be a good idea for this top. I just may need to finish another project. I need to find a pattern that I have somewhere....to finish my last block that I started a year ago.

    Cooper is a Shepherd, we think he is a Malinois Shepherd which is a Belgium shepherd. He is almost 5 yo, we believe. We rescued him last year after loosing our other German Shepherd, Zeuss, unexpectedly to an aggressive cancer. Cooper was heartworm positive but we choose to go ahead and adopt him and proceeded with the treatment. He has been HW negative since December of 2011!

    Hello all, finished reading the sunday papers on the patio with coffee enjoying the cloudy day and a nice breeze. It is muggy inside but am going to bit the bullet and work on putting some swap blocks together into tops. I've let them pile up. I want to make several lap quilts and cat quilts out of them. My cats love to lay on my blocks so figured I'll just make them little quilts to lay on

    Love the patriotic wall hanging!! Beeen moving slow and spending way too much time checking on everyone elses progress!! LOL..Just finished cutting for my Grandaughters quilt..Now to begin piecing it..Hope to have it sandwiched tonight so I can start the hand quilting....Shouldn't take long to piece, since the blocks are very large due to big patterned fabric she chose. Now the quilting is another story!!

    DebraK, I love your colors and fabrics on both of these quilts! Hope you get them done today, or one at least...

    I started taking online classes 9 weeks ago, and sewing went right out the window... I had hoped to be able to join you all today, but am behind in housework and other chores and schoolwork starts again tomorrow! Drat. I may be able to get a baby quilt top sandwiched for hand quilting today... that's something. Will be checking in with all of your progress periodically through the day.

    Thank you! I started the throw years and years ago, before I even had a rotary cutter. It's made out of shirts. I wanted to back it with denim, but that never happened!
    It will be nice to have a quilt that *I* made on the bed instead of the $3 thrift store one we have on there now. I had to buy it because the quilt I made for the bed was too small!

    I'm here today! I'm trying to empty my UFO bin, so I'll be basting more than sewing today. I should have all of my UFOs quilted by the end of the month. I might sew a bag or two today when the basting gets to be too much.

    Oh my, everyone is busy and accomplishing so much! I have made a small dent with my fabrics, realized I needed to do laundry (I do not have a washer/dryer so I have to use my MIL...luckily she is only a couple apartments away) then hang on the line. Now spending some time on the board...then back to the fabric. Thought I would share a photo of my Dodger, who is lingering close by waiting for me to play ball and Chicca who is sleeping on a chair watching my progress (thankfully, she is not on top of the ironing board or the cutting board trying to help like usual.)

    I had a knee replacement 7 weeks ago. Do your physical therapy and enjoy being waited on and taken care of. It will end too soon I'm afraid.

    Home from church, had a veggie salad, and crystal lite peach tea. And of course, I had to read all the responses that have been added since I last looked.
    I am ready to head upstairs to the sewing room. I am hopefully to get as much done as I did yesterday. See you later.

    Well, I couldn't sleep last night so in the wee hours of this morning, I put the border on my "Back to School" door hanging. I thought every teacher should have one on her front door. When I saw the Sally, Dick and Jane fabric, I knew exactly what I would use it for. It just reminds me of school and when we actually learned how to read with names we could pronounce and sight words we had to learn. I guess my door hanging is ready to quilt.

    Also, finished big sister's college t-shirt, so it is ready for move in day in August. Still need to work on Grandma's, Mom's and Dad's. We plan on wearing them on move in day.

    I am also working today on cutting out 7" batik squares for my rainbow quilt. I love batiks but they can be a little wompy and out of shape at times. Going to sash these block with white, white so they look like they are floating. Can't wait to see the results.

    Then I need to roll more fabric on comic book boards. I swear the fabric multiplies when I shut off the lights.

    Love the way you updated the DJ&S motifs with borders and graphic fabric. I have some too and wasn't sure how to make it look more nontraditional. Thanks.

    I have been working on a 5 point star block. I am trying to explode/expand the points away from the central shape. Started at about 6 am. It is past noon now,
    and I have this:

    I have to go see my mom, so I'll return to the star another day.
