    Sharkee, the butterflies are awesome. I have some ceramic decals that look like those. I loved using them on the pieces that I made. Are the embroidered and did you do them?[/QUOTE]

    Everose: Yes they are embroidered and yes I made them on my Janome 11000SE. I downloaded the butterflies off a sale on EmbroideryDesignsPlus.com last week and I think there are 18 different butterflies and all of them are just beautiful

    Will try to keep up. Great idea. I took out the 2 dogs, fed them, ate breakfast and now on computer. I want to make another clothesline bowl, work on my quilt-as-you-go table runner to show at our guild meeting tonight, and clean up my sewing area. Thanks for the support.

    Just noticed this thread was started on the 20th. Can we stretch this out to a Virtual Week of Sewing? Happy quilting.

    I think rather than infringe on athenagwis' idea, we should start a new thread for daily quiltalongs. I like the idea of checking in here. It will keep me accountable and get some quilting done. Anyone want to start a thread? Maybe "Let's quilt together"? Then Athena can keep her monthly 'quilt with me' s going. She has been wonderful to do this for us once a month.

    I like seeing other's progress and love pictures of WIPs and completed projects, so I'm in if it becomes a reality.

    My progress since Sunday? Some outdoor work done and half the blocks on the red quilt FMQed. I need some advice, but I'll wait for the new thread.

    Heather, I just adore your wall hanging with the chicks. Can you give us info and where you got the pattern. I love it.

    Here are pictures of the front and back of the layered quilt. This is for my friend's from high school 70th birthday. I am so excited about doing this photo memory quilt for her. I can't wait to get it quilted!

    The pictures are from our high school days, through the years of the two of us, her travel photos and our kids. I will quilt around the individual photos in the collages so they'll stand out. Blue and green are our high school colors. The label will be printed over a logo of the school. Underneath the 3D pinwheels are the top are dates and comments relevant to our friendship. Backing fabric are I (heart) Chicago, New York, California as that is where she has lived over the years.

    Irish, are you going to start the new thread? I'm in. I even worked on the quilt that didn't get worked on Sunday. I will turn the edge and put a decorative stitch on it and put it in the pile to give away. Liked the pattern but not the FMQ. But some little one will love it, I'm sure.

    verushcke-- congrats on your anniversary! 55 yrs is quite an achievement. shows it can be done! we're newly-weds at 34, and counting!

    irish-- i hope you will start the new thread , great idea! i need all the motivation and accountability i can get! so count me in once you start it! tia!

    grammajo- great memory quilt! it can't get more personal than that!!

    dolphyngrl-- i like your iron sack. how do you like the clover iron? do you keep it next to you when you sew? i have one but haven't tried it yet, so i'm very curious!

    liz92b- love the maple leaf especially! do you have a pattern?
    i love that this is continuing! and if irish decides not to start a new thread i hope someone else will. it's so fun to have a dialogue going all the time, and to see what people are doing!

    verushcke, congratulations on your special day!!!!! We are only celebrating 25 - so we are really babies. Although as my younger brother would say "it's downhill from here".

    What a day! It's only noon and I have had so many issues trying to finish a wallhanging. I wanted to add hanging tabs, the kind to run a pole through. Plan A didn't work, neither did plan B. Plan C wasn't good, but looks ok. Good thing these were in a freebie box of fabric DD found at a garage sale. But finally finished the silly thing....now on to the second one....the learning curve will help make the second one go much faster!

    I got permission from Susan Fletcher Conaway at http://fiberartalmosteveryday.blogsp...ilt-block.html to make a Canadian Quilt of Valour. I also recreated the block in EQ7...

Views: 296
Size:  688.5 KBThis was on my list for Sunday, but finally got it done today. Only 4 days late, but now it's done and I'm on to other things. The pattern is for a "10 minute block". I just had to try it. Will I make another one - maybe. But this little quilt is now in the "donate" pile.
