    I may join y'all. I have never (can you believe it?) made a Log Cabin block before. I am seriously considering doing the Craftsy free BOM which happens to be the Log Cabin for January. I really should be working on the hand quilting on a quilt for DGD graduation, but I need to spend time with the Bernina today. Having some serious withdrawals.

    Hi my goal for today is to finish quilting and put on binding for my mini mystery train ride quilt. Managed to get the quilt sandwiched yesterday and quilted but when I checked there were a lot of pleats on the back so have unpicked the worst and hopefully will re quilt the rest today. Fingers crossed, I am not very good at sandwiching.

    I sewed all day yesterday, in anticipation of today. I finished the last block for my Dancing with the Stars BOM, so today I hope to get the blocks put together into a top. Borders are next month. But yesterday I worked on my "ugly fabric" challenge for my guild. 7 ugly fabrics (in the eyes of the original owners, anyway) to make into a crib size or smaller quilt. The whole thing is on my design wall, taking up every inch of space - so I've been working at it even thought it's not due until June. No pattern - just cutting background half-hexagons & diamonds to fit the spaces. I don't expect to finish today, but hopefully lots more progress.

    Dottymo, that reverse applique sampler is going to be stunning! I hope you'll post pics when you're done.

    I did not think I could join in today since I have a midday get-together at a local restaurant (have to leave at noon, won't be back until around 5pm!). However, after reading that some of you just have as a goal to get to the sewing machine and sew something/ anything today, I am in! My goal will be to get into my sewing room and work on some Valentine mug rugs I started yesterday and to start cutting strips for a spring table runner. Keeping the goals light and hoping I get more done than expected

    My goal today is to get some rows sewn together for my OBW. Sewing long rows together is much less fun to me than making the individual blocks. After that I am either going to cut and piece more triangles or will press a bunch of the HST I have been using for leaders and enders. I will probably press, that is easier to do while watching football.

    My goal for today is to get as far as I can finishing my mystery train quilt, but first I will brave the ice and snow to go to church. I'll check in later.

    Yesterday I achieved quite a lot of the top for Sasha's quilt, LovequiltsUK, just have 3 sides of the border to complete then I aim to layer and quilt it today, but as I have overslept it is going to be a tall order. So I must turn of my computer and get at it, will post pics of my progress later on

    I won't have any time today to work on a project in depth (homework, ballroom, sister's choir concert, etc.). But I do have one goal for today that needs to be done. I need to iron a bunch of fabric. That's probably the only thing I'll be able to get done. I wish I had more time

    Good morning. My work in progress is using 2 1/4" scrap squares and making stars for a scrappy quilt. Hoping to get 3-4 more blocks made today.

    I layed out my diamonds yesterday and determined that I need at least 5 more diamond blocks. Hoping do do at least one today. They are EPP 1 inch hexagons in the diamond shape rather than GFG, (which I have done 2 of) and are a bit slow going. If I can do one a day, I call it a good day. Then I need to do several half diamonds.

    It sounds like you all are so very busy doing wonderful things, and if I can keep from checking back here to see what you are all doing, I may be able to get my goal done!

    Hi all. I didn't think I could join you today because we were planning on driving into the city for DGD's fourth birthday party. But we woke up to howling winds and snow. There are wind and snow squall advisories for our area, on the weather channel, and we have decided to stay home. DGD was not expecting us so will not be disappointed and honestly, I was NOT looking forward to a couple of hours at Chucky Cheeze with half a dozen screaming rug rats!!

    I have been working on some oriental fabric blocks. Very simple really,each row is just two 3 inch squares and 1 3x5.5 inch rectangle with black sashing between each one. 4 rows laid alternately in each block again with sashing between each row. Everything is cut except for the sashing. I am planning on using the blocks for the alternate side of a reversible quilt.

    Today I hope to complete 12 blocks.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I'll be working on hand quilting the borders on my flannel dog quilt (not for the dog, but has dog appliques on it). With temps in the 20's today a flannel quilt sounds nice and toasty!

    You are inspiring me. I really need to decide how to quilt a 42x42 inch top I have finished, and then I need to get on and DO it! For now I am still looking for quilting ideas.....

    I'm taking a break -- finished about 1/3 of my FMQ on a Linus quilt. Wonderful luck, my bobbin ran out eaxactly as I reached the edge of the quilt to finish a row.

    Now back to mark the next row.

    You have all inspired me to participate! I have so many UFOs to work on--what to do, what to do? I will post some pics later of what I actually got done, but I will definitely be in my sewing room today. I WANT to work on putting together my DD's QAYG squares I have done but need to assemble into the top, I want to work on a mini quilt for my guild's silent auction, and would LOVE to get some work done on a strip-pieced purse for me. Whew, that's a lot of sewing! I better get busy! :-)

    I have a few more household chores to do, hope to hit my sewing room at 8:45 MST. I have a quilt I'm going to practice my FMQ'ing on. If it turns out decent I'll be giving it to my "grand niece" for her birthday next month. That means I'll be completing a UFO and have a birthday gift done!!!
