    Otis, what a cute quilt. I am only making one goal at a time. If I get that one done I will make another. My first goal is to catch up on a BOM I am doing. If you ask me it is more like a mystery, since I had no clue how it was going to turn out. It is a real surprise. I don't normally machine applique so I think that is why I have kept putting it off but I have the center fused down now and all I have to do is sew around it and figure a way to do the vines. Here is where I am now. There is still one more month(clue) to go. I will post another pic if I get caught up.

    Hi My goal is to finish a baby quilt for a family member. It's called Zig & Zagged. It was taught at our quilt guild's mentoring class. It was easy and fun to make. Gonna get dressed...yes still in my jammies. Long hard week and I've had vertigo for over a week. I worked like this and need some fun today. Thanks for your great idea. I'm with you. Now off to get dressed to my shoes and QUILT!!!!!

    Morning Ladies! I was on a old thread, but got up before normal and took fabric downstairs to cut.

    My goals for today (I actually started yesterday because DH is out of town):
    3 flannel blankets
    3 pair pillowcases
    1 free motion car quilt (this is one I'm dreading the most)

    Will check in later. Happy sewing.

    Taking my first break, after appliqueing my first block. I sure am enjoying reading every post and seeing all of the photos. With degenerative arthritis in my lower back, it is one block at a time, take a break and then onto the next one. So, expect to post and read a lot today. Really enjoying this.

    Wow, all of you are working on such wonderful projects! Here is a photo of my first block; still have the center to add after all of the outside edges are done on the remaining 22.

    Progress Update

    Two of the dog wallhangings are basted and the bias binding made. Two more are trying out color combos for a flange and binding. I forgot about the Trip Around the World hanging in the background. I started it about 15 years ago and now think I should just play around with FMQ and maybe give it to the dog.

    The realy cool thing about this pattern is it is all just a suggestion so you can place and cut all the angles however you want so every pot is a little different. Fun!

    I'm a little bogged down pinning the tops to the bottoms of the baskets. Some lunch, stitch those, then add the sides of the baskets and I'll have the blocks ready to trim. I love to see your works in progress. It makes me giddy to have like minded people sharing.

    I planned to quilt today on my bowtie quilt for my sil. But, I just got a phone call and my daughter, grandson(3) and brand new baby girl are coming over the river and through the woods to see us. Maybe at nap time........

    Thanks ube quilting. I love doing bindings on the machine. I wouldn't quilt at all if I had to do it by hand. Ugh.


    Have fun everyone. I'm off to have lunch and start working on the afghan I'm crocheting for DD.

    ok-- crisis moment! i can either read the next three pages of posts or get started. i will come back to read the
    posts i promise!

    good morning! i'm tickled i got here before noon!
    i have a crazy doll quilt to finish for that swap, and i want to make some alice in wonderland blocks for that swap, oh, and i have to move a desk into my new quilt area so i can set up the machine to sew. just got a new table for cutting! woohoo! but it's too high to sit and sew. the legs shorten so i can use it for either.
    and i promised to make coffee-- it's in the large pot in my sewing room-- feel free to help yourself whenever you'd like some!. now, for one of those donuts!
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    I've got four goals for today/this weekend:
    1. finish a mini-quilt top (layer, quilt, bind)
    2. one block for a Canadian Quilt of Valour quilt (the first block!)
    3. one block for an online Mystery (Carol Doak's yahoo group)
    4. one block for the local guild
    I also *need* to mow the back yard which is now a foot high ...

    Wow everyone has so much done already. I finished marking the quilting lines on my baby quilt. Decided I wasn't in the mood to FMQ right now so I cut postage stamps for 1 1/2 hours. My eyes felt like they were going to pop out so I came downstairs to move the laundry from the washer to the dryer. I took a break for lunch. I cut up a pineapple MMMMMM. I am going to go do one of my paper pieced stars now. I don't think I will get caught up on that project today, I am 4 behind on that project. My DH and DS are both gone fishing and working( they are combining the 2)so it is just me and the cat today. NIce and peaceful and quiet here today. It is kind of nice for a change. It has been a rough week at work. Happy sewing everyone.
    Pat
