    Wow, Lea! You did good today. I'd love to see some closeups of the quilting.

    It's finished, doesn't stand up to too close an inspection but this is for our holiday van and I am so pleased the top is done. Still got another one to go but at least some of the blocks have been started. Thanks so much Rachel for organising this, I know I would have given up ages ago without my "virtual" quilting bee it has been such fun and oh my goodness some truly beautiful quilts have been worked on I can only dream. I have taken pictures but it has taken me ages just to load them onto the computer so I guess my chances of getting them to post are slim (yes I am technically challenged)lol. It is 10pm here so I have been quilting for 12 hours but with lots of breaks and rests. Have tried to upload picture but it is too many mb and I have no idea how to reduce size so sorry. Will say good night now, thanks for being such wonderful company and enjoy the rest of your day. Eileen

    Oh, Sandra! How is your weather? Even tho the sun is shining like nobody's business here in the wild of western WI, our NOAA radio just went off a while ago (nearly scared the curl right outta my hair!) & said that we're in a tornado watch until 11 tonight. I've been seeing all the damage in KS (where I'm from originally) & OK (where we lived for 3 years) & now they say it's headed our way. STAY SAFE! If the sirens go off, take your sewing into the root cellar with you! LOL!

    Feel better! Look at some quilting magazines or better yet, quilting catalogs. That'll cure what ails you! Seriously, take care!

    Thanks! The strips are 1 1/2" wide. I've never made one before but after looking at several I decided I prefer the narrower strips/logs. I have 25 blocks done and think I need 23 more. That means I passed the 1/2 way point today in our virtual quilting bee! I cut my strips lights (well, some mediums, but as long as they are lighter than the darks I think they look fine), and darks into 1 1/2" widths, but I didn't cut them to length. I just sew them on after randomly grabbing one and then cut it off when done stitching. Works for me.

    Looking great!! Is it the right size now. I think the patterns created with the more blocks just looks great!!~ Rachel

    No, I plan on it hanging almost to the floor on a QS bed, so I'm going to add another whole row around it. That means another 23 blocks. Before I get to crazy with it, though, I will measure again. Lol! I did get to #25 today so I passed the halfway point. It was a lot of fun thinking about all of you today while my machine was humming.

    Here's part of the Dresden Plates I've been working on (between looking & blabbing here... LOL!). My DH took this picture & it looks pretty pitiful. I didn't realize how wrinkled the background blocks had gotten -- I pulled these out from under a stack on my sewing table. Sorry. They look pretty sad but I think they'll clean up OK. I plan to put large circles over the centers. That's something I wanted to ask y'all. I made these (sewed them together, that is) back in the early 90's (1990, not 1790, you guys! Golly! LOL!) & needless to say, they don't make that kind of fabric anymore. So I don't know what to use for the centers & borders. Any suggestions? Like I said earlier, these were the last thing my Mother & I worked on the week before she died so even tho they may not look like much, they mean the world to me (& I'm keeping the quilt that they become!!!).

    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    leakus, I'm here. Just got home from work awhile ago & had to check out the board before I started sewing. I'm finishing up the binding on my latest quilt. I HATE binding, but I'm determined to get it done today.

    I got home from the airport and after an hour unpacking and getting jumped all over by the animals, I read all the posts and looked at the pictures. Wow, leatherflea, I didn't know you could do that with a machine. Breathtaking. The log cabin is so great, himnher. I originally made a few with the 1 1/2 inch strips but later did 2 inch. Now I've gone back to the narrow strips, it just looks so much better.

    Congratulations to everyone who participated. So hope you do it again soon. I do want to join you another time.

    Well, I'm done. I finished all my projects, ate lunch AND took a nap. Very productive day. Thoroughly enjoyed this and look forward to doing it again.

    Still here plugging away at my hand quilting!! Hope to get at least a third of the blocks done before stopping for the night. Never got to sorting thru my scraps or finding borders for a top I did yesterday from leftover fabrics to make it a twin size. Guess that will go on the list for tomorrow.

    I am i awe of the work you have all done!! Even tho I didn't get as much done as I wanted to, I still got enuf done to make me happy. Maybe next time I will be feeling better, and get more done!

    It was a lot of fun to quilt with everyone today!! I will definitely do this again, maybe once a month!! I hope you can figure out how to resize your pics, what photo program do you have maybe someone can give you some tips!! Either way at least you got a lot accomplished today, that's a great thing.

    Cheers!

    I'm about to call it a day also. DH is trying to help me figure out how to post pictures of my day's accomplishment. We are not having much luck. It has been a ball. Thank you, Rachel, for starting it. (I could have been cleaning out the garage!!) LOL!
