    I have to ask.........what are you working on?

    For me, it's a new winter quilt for our room. Am using a Thimbleberries pattern called "Up North". It has bright stars and pine trees. Am doing it in warm reds, deep blues and greens with some plaids thrown in to give it the rustic/lodge-like look I'm trying to go for. Also trying to keep it scrappy which is very hard for me to do. Controlled scrappy isn't a strong enough term!!! Never realized I had such control issues when it comes to fabric until I started this project.

    Your turn, we want details!

    Let's see....I have a snowman applique quilt top about half finished, the binding partially on baby grand daughter's quilt, and most of the blocks made for a raggy quilt for our sofa. Isn't it obvious that I must have adult ADD?!!

    I'm working on Trail Mix, a NYB, Bonnie Hunters' 'Easy Street', a Row Robin and a Batik block swap. I also participate in a monthly Secret Pal swap, a FQ swap, and a monthly block swap, all from this board. Plus I'm the BOM chair for my guild so I plan, write the instructions and make a display block each month. I ended up pushing a few other projects wwaaaaayyy back on my to-do list.

    I'm making some small scrappy patchwork items. Here is a coffee cozy I finished a couple of days ago. Need to finish some binding on a couple of pot holders.

    I am working on doll clothes for a special small girl who only wants a baby dolly and lots of clothes for Christmas and double layer fleece mitts for family members and friends and to put in the Christmas Community Hampers for families in need. I'm also making a scrap flannel red, blue and white kid's quilt to practice my FM quilting on before I attempt something larger. I always like to have several projects on the go so that I can switch back and forth.

    I am trying to complete quilts for my nieces for Christmas. I am very slow so it will probably come down to the wire!

    It is December 1st and I am done with my Christmas sewing!!! Finished the last placemat tonight! Have gone over my list about a dozen times and yep! it's done! LOL Can't believe it! So the rest of this month I can play, work on UFO's, start something new, whatever I want. But first I must clean up my sewing room, it looks like a bomb went off in there LOL It's so bad I don't think even the dust bunnies want to chance it! Hope it rains tomorow, won't feel guilty about playing with fabric, picking up pins, cleaning machines, rearanging cabnets, ect.

    Binding a quilt I have been working on for a while for my son. It is a Miami Dolpine theme. Has been quite a challange for me as I am not very fond of the colors but is really has turned out OK. Still have a lot of projects left for Christmas so will be happy just sewing away!!!!!!

    I'm working on the final month of a 6-month BOM, Vintage Rouge by Vickie Bellino of Bloom Creek by Marcus. I'm nearly finished with the English paper-pieced flowers, then have to piece the backgrounds for the applique border, do the applique and then put the whole top together. This may take longer than a month!

    I have finished three ohio star christmas tree skirts, a santa door hanging, a snowman table topper and snowflake placemats and delivered two of the skirts, door hanging and table runner and placemats to my sisters for Christmas gifts. I am now working on the "Therapy in Session" as a wall hanging, quilting it and putting the strips on it for hanging. Would love to see other folks who have done this panel and how they turned out. I did mine with 1 1/2 inch strips cut 6" square and turned horizontal and vertical. After that is done I think I'll be getting the house in shape for Christmas.

    I know exactly what you mean!! I'm binding a quilt for a little boy that has a Cars theme. It's cute, but the fabrics are dark and busy and the quilting doesn't show up as well as i would have though. I like the quilting to show!! LOL!!! BUT - the little boy will think it's really cool on Christmas morning when he opens it up! (and that is the main thing)
    my name is becca and i'm a quilt-a-holic :-)

    I am working on a quilt for my sister. I started with a baby quilt, then did a lap size, now this one is my biggest yet - a twin size. It is primarily grey, yellow and white with a few bicycle prints. She will be very surprised, as I have not told her that I am sewing again, or that I've taken up quilts. Think I'll keep it a secret until she opens it up. Fun!

    I've started a table runner for January. I selected a red color for the child's hat and mittens. It looks like Santa Claus. I must have been thinking "Christmas". I think I will start again.

    I have to get the binding on 3 lap quilts, and a large Deer wall hanging before the 22nd. Iam machine quilting a lap quilt for a nursing home that has to be there by the 18th, and I still have to make a twin size rag quilt, flannel, before the 25th. Guess I should get off of here and head for my sewing room huh!!

    I have a twister baby quilt ready to machine quilt, just waiting for a day off to do that. I have an idea to make a small quilt to hang over the fireplace opening at my DD house to stop the draft coming down the chimney. I can put magnets in the corners to stick to the metal insert.

    Just finished a coffee cup quilt that has been in the works for several years!

    Also, am finishing a wall hanging for my eye doctor (wish I could post pictures). It's a before and after eyes design; the before is a deconstruction using Carol Ann Waugh's, Stitch & Slash method and the after (construction) uses Rose Hughes applique in a new way method.

    I'm finishing up three charity quilts (all in various states), and then I need to get back to the wallhangings (4) and kids' quilts (2) for Christmas.

    Dang. I really ought to log off, huh.

    I'm currently working on my first quilt. It's just a bunch of charm squares in a radiating diamond shape. Right now I'm just piecing the top together, trying to figure everything out along the way. (I don't know anyone who quilts, so I've been teaching myself through reading the forums here and watching YouTube videos.)

    I'm doing great for me. I'm usually frantically trying to finish everything up 3 days before Christmas. 3 lap quilts, a wallhanging, and a pair of pillowcases are done. Still have to finish up a Santa placemat for grand niece, another pair of pillowcases amd a table topper. Then I'm done. I also have all my shopping, except for a few stocking stuffers, done. Yay for me this year!
