    I am already up and sewing, but am taking a break for church. I enjoy that time with my dad as we fix bhareakfast together after mass, but I will be back for most of the day. I will have to stop for laundry, cooking super and light house work, but will try to put in a a solid day of sewing. My goals:
    1. Finish the guild challenge that is due early June
    2. Sew the binding on my daughters quilt to hand sew later
    3. Spend a half hour organizing my mom's scraps I inherited
    4. Work on a UFO
    I know I sound very ambitious, but we will see

    O.K. now that I have spent 45 minutes figuring out hubby's camera. Here is what I will be working on. The first is a spider web scrappy quilt. The next 2 are a project I have wanted to do for a long time. Since I get bored easily I thought I would change up every so often to keep me going. Off to church and then I will be sewing.

    OK- here is mine laid out in Eleonor Burns Star Log Cabin. It's not big enough, so I don't know what else to do, but make more blocks and play around with it. Any ideas would be appreciated. I want it to be QS bedspread size, with the star being on the main part of the bed, of course. Happy sewing today! I am so thrilled to be a part of this. My husband is gone for the whole day and my parents (live on the street behind me) are gone for the weekend, so no interruptions! I won't count the time I get on here as an interruption. Lol!

    I would love to join!!! I will be working on a simple purse tote that bas been waiting to get sewn for 6 weeks!! I also have an ereader cover to sew for someone who heard me mention I was making them and wanted to know if she could order one from me. Of course you can I was so excited to actually be asked to sew something for someone and make a few $$. I also, have step 4 of a mystery quilt I need to start, but have to refinish step 3 since I did step 2 wrong and had to rip out 150ish 6.5 inch seams. Yeah me. Happy quilting everyone.

    I've got several cut. Off to sew!!
    I cannot wait to see what you make with this. Maybe I'll pull mine out for my strips goal and give it a go today too!!

    I think you'll like this with more blocks, you will get some wonderful secondary designs as you add more blocks. Hopefully it'll work out for you!!

    Cheers!

    If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the pattern for the spider web scrappy?? I love making string scrappys and I'm always looking for unique patterns. That is going to be so cool.

    Ok ... got a few blocks sewn. These will be placed on point and other blocks with the stripes angled outward will be in-between.

    Excuse the post it notes

    Way off target already..Got the Gator quilt pinned and ready for hand quilting...got sidetracked by needing several breathing treatments! COPD sucks...Pollen is high and gives me problems. Now I want to start the hand quilting. My grandson is 5 and is always asking about his "cubbers"

    Oh those look great!! Such a variety of designs, will you be making the whole quilt with just this fabric?

    You guys thought I was just joking about haunting y'all today, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight? Nope! I'm here! And I've already been doing some sewing stuff! I finished getting my package ready for the 10.5" batik square swap (yes, I'm running late on that). Then I got my hand sewing ready to go. I planned to sew binding on (the first change from making my DH's Jelly Roll Race quilt... later for that, I guess). I had some little (8" maybe) scrappy Dresden Plates (the very last thing my Mother & I worked on so I've "been saving them") that I'm appliquing to some funky background fabric (that will either be good or just straight up weird -- I'm not sure why I didn't just sew them to muslin like I usually do). Then after I got my sewing all lined up (I have to have my special thread catcher cup, my special frog pin cushion, my nippers, my can of Dr. Pepper... I'm super anal about my hand sewing), I scurried in to watch the puck drop on my hockey game & wouldn't you know it?!? We're bracing for bad weather up here & the channel is off. And on. And off. Thank you, Direct TV! No, I think the actual station is having trouble. So anyhoo... pretty soon I'm going to have my DH go get my yummy Chinese meal (spring rolls? Fried rice? Egg Foo Yung? All of the above?). THIS IS FUN! Now just to steer clear of the tornadoes (I'm originaly from KS & have nearly met my maker via tornadoes a couple of times so when they say run, I high tail it for the basement!!!). Is everybody else having fun, fun, fun?

    Hi everyone, thought I'd join the virtual fun. Mild but gloomy day in central NYS. I sandwiched a table runner and am now hand quilting. Have another two to go. Two of the three runners are a belated 25th anniversary gift for a cousin and her hubby. Need to finish before next Sunday. Shouldn't be an issue if carpal tunnel doesn't kick in big time again.

    Hi, back again, it is 5.50pm here and I have just finished an early dinner as my husband is wanting to watch an "important" football match (soccer) which starts at 6. I have completed another 3 blocks fully and have 6 more that need sashing. I am feeling tired but hope to have a break and then get back to. If I can sash the 6 blocks then I just need to join them up (already have the others joined) and the top will be finished. Not sure if the post saying what I am doing actually got throught but I am making 2 identical quilts each with 3x6 14.5" blocks. I am so pleased with how much I have achieved. I am going to take a photograph of progress so far and see if I can post it. FORGOT TO SAY I am loving everything you are all doing, such a great variety. Happy sewing Eileen

    It is fun isn't it?? Sounds like you are ready to get down to some serious sewing. I hope your game is back on now. Enjoy the Chinese food!!

    Oh no, they look bored!! But your quilt looks great, do you think you'll get the whole top done today? I forget what you said your goal was for today. That's a lot of small pieces!

    Just a quick update on my progress .... I have gotten the binding sewn down to my first quilt. Originally I was going to machine sew it to the back, but since this is for a charity, I think I will go ahead and take the time to hand tack it to the back, so I may be doing just that for the rest of the day!! I probably will take a break in the afternoon though and sew a little bit of something else to break up the monotony.

    I will have pics of this quilt hopefully by the end of the day!

    How is everyone else doing?

    Cheers!

    No I won't get the whole top done as I'm short about 3500 squares. BUT the next 2.5" swap closes and I'll have 2000 squares coming in the mail in the next couple of weeks. One more swap and I'll have enough squares for the QS that I'm shooting for. On to the coins, that won't take too long, lunch, alittle nap and then back at it this afternoon. It is 11:45 MTN time.
