    There are some great projects on here. I finished Month 5 and the 2 pillowcases. I didn't realize Month 5 included assembling the quilt centerpiece but that is done now too. The rest of the months make border blocks and then big borders. I think I'm done for the day as back is killing me! But I feel pretty good about what I've done today. Will keep checking in to see y'all are doing.

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    Chairjogger, what a great name. How many of us could call ourselves that?

    Well my chair project went bad, had machine issues, the machine didn't like the heavy duty outdoor thread. Then after finishing the prototype and putting it on the chair it was too large. It would have been nice had I had measurements instead of trial and error. The owner of the chairs told me to make them 48" long, WRONG! ended up being 44". I ran out of thread after starting #3 out of 6. So I cleaned up the mess from the serger and put away that project. Now Im off to start on the Colts quilt. Lets hope things go better...

    Very pretty, Raggiemom.

    DogHouseMom, Yes, Peotone is a nice town. I like it a lot. Where do you live? What a bummer on the letters! That really sounds like one of my tricks. How's your lady coming--can't wait to see her.

    Got the letters re-traced and cut.

    Anyone want to guess what it is going to say?? I've got them scrambled in the pic below.

    A few hints are necessary.

    There is a punctuation mark missing from this picture ... it is an apostrophe.
    There is no L in the saying.
    The uppercase I looks like a lower case l.
    Remember ... this is a quilt for a Chemo patient.

    Any guesses?

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I live in Braceville which is way over next to I55 ... just south of Wilmington.

    The lady is finished ... a pic of her sewn to the top is on page two of this thread. I'm getting ready (or fixin to for the southerners) to adhere the words now.

    PokerDiva ... love the quilt top!! I also love Chairjogger's name and wish I had thought of that one instead of DogHouseMom

    Yea! I met my goal. All of the pieces are cut out even the fussy cut outer borders. I have also marked the 200 squares that will be used to make flying geese. Now, I am going to relax as I work on hand sewing my applique squares for another project. Tomorrow, I can start sewing on my quilt. It will be so much easier with everything ready for sewing.

    OK- So I got up late, went out for a long lunch, and here I am, reading the Board. Todays plan (what's left of it) is to put the binding on a table topper that has been staring at me for about three months. Have fun, everyone!

    Jelly roll strips are dry, pressed, and hanging (very carefully) over my bedroom door. I'm thinking I could finish that top in two nights this week. Yah!!

    Still have to do a schoolhouse block for September. Saw the fabric wasn't prewashed/shrunk, don't want to do a special load today. I finished the football pillowcase, so that project all packed away for now. The jelly roll and D9P projects don't need to be finished until next August (2013).

    I will be finished with college at the end of July, moving into an apartment where I'll have a sewing room, and have already bought a Ken Lund quilt frame, can't wait to set it up. Will be too busy with finals to join you all next month, see you in August, tho!
    Tomorrow I must stop procrastinating.

    Quilt top almost done..spent a lot of time with the frog today..Maybe because I really wanted to be working on something else....Have to cut a few more strips for sashing, and now it looks like I will be about 3 inches short to cut the first border!!! This is my 5th and final Gator quilt for a grandson...looking forward to working on the girls quilts...butterflies, hearts etc and pretties~~ If I can't get all the border cut, I will proably work on my purses for a while, and then prep more squares for my cathedral window....
    I have a feeling my problem stems from the fact that I really dont like the quilt I am doing..My grandson designed what he wanted, and ha 2 versions fo gator fabric sashed with footballs..I added a 1 inch border around the gator fabrics, even tho he didn't ask for this, because putting it next to each other was way too busy.. Off to cut and may be get this one top done..Hope the fabric holds~!

    I love these sheep!! I am jealous, I'd love one hanging on my wall. Very cute!!

    No clue, but the letters are cute, can't wait to see it back together.

    It is when you cut the fabric to show a particular portion of it without regard to saving fabric, so if you have a fabric with all kinds of desserts on it, you might cut just a donut out which could be in the middle of the fabric.

    My tiger bag is done. I still have time to clean up a little in here so I can start a new project in the morning. Loved spending the day with all of you. I'll look back here later to see what you have done.
