    Join us for a Virtual Quilt Weekend

    I had asked if we were having a Virtual Quilt Day on another thread and there was interest in having one. So hopefully, I'm not stepping on anyone's toes by doing this... But consider this your invitation to join in on Virtual Quilt Weekend. There aren't any rules, work on what you want when you can. Post pictures if possible and let us know what you're working on.

    I haven't been able to quilt in over 2 weeks as I've had company so first thing I need to do is figure out where I am on the projects I'm working on!

    See you later.....

    I'd love to join in. I plan to put the blocks together to finish my honey, honey quilt, make 120 HST'S for a new project, bind a couple of quilts, and get some table mats layered.

    I'll join in, as I was planning to work on grandson #3 (grandchild #4) quilt. Had to piece 190+ flying geese, but am through with that and am sewing blocks now. I have 18 out of 48 done, and should get the other 30 done tomorrow. Then comes the laying out so that no like colors touch. Here are the first 8 blocks.

Size:  287.4 KBI would like to join this. I have a top done that was an ugly fabric challenge and it's still pretty ugly,but I need to practice my FMQ on something bigger than a mug rug and thought this would be a good one to do that with. I plan on getting it sandwiched today and quilt it this weekend. Problem is half of Sat will be eaten up with a meeting I have to attend...we never get out of there until after noon....and then there is the Mariners game, but I'm going to try and get a healthy start on this quilt!

    I feel comfortable to "really" start this quilt for a friend (in exchange for her to do some LA ing for me). I made several blocks from my own scraps before even thinking of cutting into her fabric. I have her fabric washed and starched so can start cutting tomorrow.

    Pretty quilt mckwilter. I even like the "ugly" quilt by shadowirish.

    I'm joining you now for the weekend. I have a D9P that needs borders and quilting. If I finish that, there's a baby quilt to be quilted, then a postage stamp quilt, then the UFOs.

    Woohoo! I got it sandwiched....with Elmers. Will be dry for tomorrow! Had picked out backing material but ended up having to piece it. Used some orphan blocks I had made out of leftovers and learned the perils of bias edges....we will see how it quilts up. Hopefully it will be not too bad.

    I'm looking forward to it! I'll check in with y'all sometime in the morning on Sunday. If it isn't raining I might go for take out breakfast first. I guess I have Saturday to decide what I'm going to work on and maybe figure out how to use my webcam to take a picture of whatever that will be.

    I cut out the templates For the A, B, C, D, E pieces of the diamonds. I cut the fabric for the A,B,C pieces. Yikes -- that was it for almost 3 hours work. Oh well... It takes what it takes. Will try to do more tomorrow.
