    Worked on the back for my first quilt that I've decided to let my dog have since she loves quilts so much. I misjudged how much fabric I needed for the border so I only got 3 sides done. I was showing my husband what the backing and border looked like together and my dog crawled right onto the back lol. Guess she loves it already!
    Thanks for having this virtual quilt day. It was the encouragement I needed.

    I got a late start today. I got home from work in time to watch the last 5 laps of Nascar race, started reading the Sun. paper on the couch, fell asleep and slept for 1 1/12 hours, ate dinner and finally started quilting. I got 5 of 20 blocks quilted on my Silhouettes quilt done. That makes 12 finished--only 8 more to go. Hopefully I'll get the rest done this week and then on to the binding.

    Enjoyed seeing all your work.

    Well, didn't get much done. Have to relocate my pp butterfly pattern since mine didn't turn out so good. OH well, had fun anyway.

    That block is soooo perfect! It is paper pieced? I love the colours and the shapes!

    DWR I am in awe of- too hard for me, but yours looks like it will be a fine example of the type!

All of the arcs are pieced, but the fussy hand stitching is taking a while. The third row should be on by bedtime and then only one more row to go. It will be 19" square when complete.

    I didn't get a lot done today, but I did achieve my goal - which was to get my butt back into my sewing room. I've been on a knitting kick lately, and had no motivation to sew. I managed to get 2 of my block of the month done (one of the red/blue squares is in the picture). Plus I got started on my BQ quilt. This is going to be a practice quilt when my long arm arrives (this week, I hope). I started with a square focus block, but didn't like it (the bottom border didn't blend well with the rest) so I've turned it into a rectangular BQ.

    Several of our quilt shops have the Sally, Dick and Jane fabric. I've had mine for about a year, but I think it is still out there.

I hope to go back downstairs after he eats (I won't be eating - one big meal per day is all I can handle) and finish at least with the borders on the Asian Scrappy quilt. Here's some progress postings. The smaller pieces are needing handwork - one just binding and the other some hand quilting to finish up.
    Wow, Kathleen! Love the quilt. The Asian fabric and the black sashing is just beautiful.

    Also worked on another UFO - had to do some "design changes" since this is old also. But I decided since I was going to be donating it, I should just GET IT DONE. Just the binding left to put on.

    All these pictures are wonderful. Lots of new ideas for quilts to come.
    Everose, I love the braid borders. I need to put those on my bucket list.

    Well, I got another quilt cut out for my retreat a week from tomorrow. Also, did some hand embroidering which kept me awake through Big Brother. Of course, now I'm wide awake at 11:00. Need to finish my glass of wine and get some sleep.

    So much accomplished by everyone today--way to go. Finally got the resew done with new border fabric. Will bind with a navy/gold paisley. Also the string mini all pieced. Think I will use the rust fabric as the binding as shown in the pic. Now off to bed as it's a new day.Name:  006.JPG

    oksewglad, that is a lovely redo- you were so right to give it a setting to show off your blocks- it looks great now!

    I'm still on page nine reading all the posts from yesterday. Well, it seems that yesterday was my "virtual day of rest" instead of quilting. I had big plans but never really got on step. Had major backache and, after church, took two extra strength Tylenols and slept the afternoon away. I'm so glad to see that so many of you got so much done. The pictures are great. As a retired teacher, I have really enjoyed the talk of back to school and the great classroom projects. This was my favorite time of the year -- preparing myself and the classroom for the kids coming in for the new year. Now it's time for me to get back to "Monday" and get some things done. Will have to get back later to the remaining part of the thread, which is growing as I sit here. Congratulations to all who made so much progress.

    Dang!!! I wish I had some of your energy. I have all kinds of plans to get things done - in my head, that is. I just can't get the enthusiasm to get movin'. I have sooooo much fabric pieces that I need to get rid of and ran a pattern off this AM called "Almost Paradise". That would be a good place to start, I guess. Oooops - my colored ink is almost out, I see, but I did get that pattern printed off.

    I am going to locate my 4" square and cut a pile of crumb blocks I have been playing with. This weekend is our little group gathering in the town room, there are 8 of us if everybody comes. I love those days, so I want to have something to work on-like piecing the blocks OR of course starting something totally NEW.....so I need to plan and organize-cleaning out the trunk of my car is a good start-lots of quilting "stuff" stays with me in the trunk all the time-so I am ready to work on strings or crumbs by just adding the machine to the car and going!
