    I will now agree...quilting is addicting. lol

    I am almost done with my Mom's quilt, have to cut out the binding and attach it. I just ordered the backing for the Jelly Roll Race quilt top I have done, then I will start the second one. AND I bought a charm pack that I plan to make a quilt out of. I also have to finish putting interfacing on the t-shirts for Hubby's quilt, then get him to get his DCU so I can actually start the quilt.

    I still want to try to learn FMQ but haven't done it yet. But I will!

    Oh and hats off to you that make such big quilts! I am just doing straight lines on a 60"x75" quilt and it is frustrating at times. But I still love it!

    I agree 100% that quilting is addicting.....and it gets worse with every quilted object I make! Congrats on completion of your mom's quilt and good luck for all of your future projects. Just remember us here on the board when you have questions....we love to give our advice and answer any questions. I just wish I had found this board when I was making my first quilt....there would have been so many less mistakes! LOL

    Well when you get the Breaking Dawn Part I DVD and it has a fabric poster in it and the first thing you say is "This would be a great quilt." Then there might be a problem. lol And yes I do plan to figure out how to make it into a lap quilt. lol

    I have also caught the quilting bug! I have made 5 quilts since Sept. I love putting the tops together, but hate binding them when they come back from the quilters.

    This board is just as addicting .....I keep looking at my accounting book it's staring back and saying finish reading me so you can finish your homework!! lol I love quilting too, I've been at it for 9 years now and I still feel like I'm learning everyday! I've learned to experiment more and I love charm packs! Look at modabakeshop.com they have this really cute house table runner im going to make into a quilt and tons more...take advantage of free patterns!!

    Dublb thank you for the link! I'm going to try that on my next quilt. Tngal22, Welcome to the Club--Quilters' Anonymous, that is. Who else carries a note pad and graph paper in their purse 'just in case inspiration strikes'?

    I finished my mom's quilt in less than a week...shocking since Little Bit don't let me sew much. But it did help she took a LONG nap on Saturday then she was at MDO on Tuesday.

    Next up is to start my 2nd Jelly Roll Race Quilt.

    Well, there was no FMQ, just straight stitch so that helped!
