    I have been sewing off and on since 6 am. I am working on our 2012 mystery block challenge. I was able to keep up with the blocks throughout the year, and now I am putting the blocks together. Part of the challenge was to use scraps or only material we had on hand. I inheriated my mom's scraps, so this quilt is extra special to me.

    Great to "see" you Rachel. Glad it was just a crazy day delaying you.

    Reposting here. I finished binding 2 of my 3 baby quilts. Now on to a top I cut out before Christmas, and then to see how much of this list I can get done today. There is a new quilt nagging at me, so I might get derailed before too long.

    1. bind 3 baby quilts
    2. cut out a wallhanging for my "cold wall"
    3. put together a quilt I cut out before Christmas
    4. work on my embroidery project

    Finally found you. I have sandwiched all four of my QFKs, and am now quilting one. Took a break for lunch, but back to the grindstone shortly.

    I'm working on quilting this runner I started Friday afternoon. I finished piecing it last night about 9:30 and today is dedicated to quilting it and possibly adding the binding. http://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f1...r-t214060.html

    I'm working on another scrappy, a double irish chain variation. This one for a boy so no florals in it, using dots, stripes, geometrics, solids. 14 blocks done this morning so far. Sewing strips for more.

    Well, I have the Christmas quilt top done. It was going to be a twister quilt but I like the way the 10" blocks look right now so it might just stay that way! Will post pictures later when I get a few other things done. Sounds like people are getting a lot done so far.

    Good morning and happy quilting day! I'm working on the strips I prepared yesterday to make a hobo-style bag. First I have to sew batting inside all these "tubes."

    I will be in the Annex today.

    This week is quilt all the quilts I am working on for my son and his family. I started last night and will finish up Sayra's today. Then start on either Koressa's or Darrien's after that.

    Good afternoon everyone. I finished one block of my swap blocks. Only 15 more to go. But not today.
    Today I will square Up and put the binding on a Dallas cowboy quilt for a friend. Then I want to get a baby quilt set up for quilting. Then I will make as many blocks as I can for another friend's quilt. That should take me to the end of my sewing time for today.

    Working on machine quilting a care quilt, hope to get the binding machine stitched on & will finish that by hand later. Will decide what my next project will be once I get to that point. Nice to see everyone working away, looking forward to pictures later.

    Back from Mass and then a pizza buffet. Now will get into my sewing room to do a little purging to make room for quilty things. It's a multi-purpose room -- very cluttered with scrapbooking, home office, storage, and sewing. The room is much too small for any of this, so will take things out today -- focusing on Christmas decorations, etc. Can use the closet space for fabric still in bags and storage boxes. Feel like I'm hanging out my dirty laundry by saying this online. Last week purged out the scraps of batting and friends' scraps from purging HER sewing stash. These were sent to a friend who makes things for the humane society. So I'll be thinking about all of the pretties that you are all making while I'm deep in my clutter.

    BTW, it's too beautiful a sun shiny day to be stuck in a cluttered room and closet. But c'est la vie!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Slogging along on Easy Street here; drawing diagonal lines on 2" purple squares. That's step 4, I think.

    On the river,
    I like your blocks. I haven't done an Irish Chain quilt but its on my to-do list. Maybe I will use my MIL stash for that one.

    I have my baby quilt sandwiched and will sew it and turn it at halftime of Gophers and Hawkeyes men's basketball game. Go Gophers!

    I have been working on my "Cabins in the Cotton" blocks. I bought the book in 2005 and found it while looking for some motivation. I will post some progress pictures later this afternoon.
    Happy Quilting.

    Progress check; I have gotten the long borders on the quilt. Thought it would take an hour, been 2-1/2 so far. Just need to iron and the top is done.
