    Well I'm off to quilting class soon. I'm going to work on not sure as for the last few weeks I've been teaching a newbie who is highly enthusiastic. Getting close to making a sandwich.

    As you can see in the picture bag is packed with show and tell plus items to do at class if time. Hopefully well prepared.

    I will be working on piecing a queen sized quilt, and attempting to make my first fabric box. I have never quilted anything on my machine so I am excited to see how it goes!

    Wow, you ladies have been busy! I am headed up to the sewing room in a few minutes. I have a meatloaf, mac & cheese, and carrots all ready to cook for lunch, they just need to be popped into the oven. I might take a few minutes and do a raspberry cobbler too. My husband is working from home this morning and will be on the phone so can't sew but I can finish cutting and getting things ready so when he leaves at 10, the machine can start humming!

    I don't have much time to sew on the weekends, but if I could manage to get the last 2 border strips on my youngest DD's peacock quilt, and the backing pieced, I would be satisfied.

    Woo Hoo! My quilting buddy, Nancia, is coming for the day. So hopefully we will spur each other on to great things. I'll fire up the computer in the basement so we can check in from time to time. Maybe even post some pics. Now to go decide what I am going to work on.

    I have seafood salad for lunch and some cupcakes. No prep needed, just eat and back to quilting.

    I started my virtual weekend yesterday.

    I finished 2 bags for Sadie's Dream for a Cure. Thanks to another QB member, I found this organization and can work on reducing my stash.

    I also plan on reorganizing some WIPs and putting together some baby quilt sandwiches.

    Here are block 1a and 1b together. Now I have to wait till Monday (I think) before she posts the directions for Block 2. In the meanwhile, I have only 37 patches left to make for the scrappy quilt and I can start assembling.

    Cookies baked; pie done and DH is on his way to go hunt with the boys! Now, to sew as soon as I get off the board...

    Well, this is what I've been working on today. Three Thanksgiving wall-hangings and a Christmas wallhanging. The Thanksgiving ones have hanging sleeves on the back that need to be stitched down by hand. The Christmas one I'll hand stitch the next time our quilt group meets at church in two weeks.

    I cut out squares for my FiL's plaid flannel quilt and got the rows sewn together. I'll finish piecing it tomorrow, and maybe get it sandwiched. This was a last-minute project--my husband talked to him on the phone yesterday, and he was cold! Good reason to make a quilt.

    Raggiemom, your wallhangings are really cute.

    OK, I'm calling it quits for the night. I finished hand sewing the hanging sleeves so I accomplished everything today that I wanted! Sounds like the rest of you are making good progress as well. See you in the morning.

    I will be joining in , starting tonight while hubby watches the football game and then tomorrow. Heavy rainfall is predicted so that is a good reason to stay inside and sew. Have 2 pairs of pants to hem and hope to get two quilts ready for fmq. Still need to fmq my avatar quilt as the birthday of the friend who has claims to this quilt is at the end of the month.

    Having a glass of sangria and feeling somewhat accomplished. Finished 2 pillowcases to match DH's new quilt. Pieced a QFK and pressed the backing...it is now ready to be quilted. I cut out 2 more QFKs and one is half pieced. Also finished the binding on one small flannel quilt that was half done; two more to go, but they aren't easy. WHEW! I think I will need a second glass of sangria. Much more to be done tomorrow.

    Well I went to class and as the photo shows nothing done for me. Spent the time dashing to the doctor and helping a newbie. She is doing a very large bed quilt with a small janome so we have divided into 3 sections. Yesterday she put a border around the section on 3 sides pressed and eventually sandwiched at end of day. Discussed the quilting pattern and she is going home to use her walking foot and quilt it. . I was that exhausted when I came home I fell asleep. Good job no family to feed only 3 dogs who went to sleep with me.

    Well, before I get into too much quilting today, I'm going shopping. I need a new 1/4" foot for my Janome, the little metal hook thingie is bent and keeps catching on my fabric. Also, one of our LQS has over 100 bolts of novelty fabric for $5/yd and over 100 bolts of other fabric for $3/yd. Can't pass that up! Will try to remember to post a picture of what I "accomplish" there

    This is "The Never Ending Red Quilt" that I have been quilting all week. Maybe I'll get her finished by Sunday.

    Yes, my studio is my entire house! When we moved to San Antonio, we down-sized considerably & there is no sewing room, so I took over the entire house. Love open-concept living! I'm set up right in front of the fireplace. Not a problem as I don't think we'll ever have a fire. Had one at last place. Lived there for nearly 12 years & had only 3-4 fires that entire time.

    I'm working on finishing my third quilt, very pleased so far...I have found a guide for that perfect scant 1/4", and my 1 1/2" blocks and sashing are looking better. I'm entering it in an online contest. Will post a pic when done for constructive criticism!

    I will be sewing all weekend but my weekend starts tomorrow! I am working on a round robin that needs the rows I made attached and corner stones which I have no idea what I am doing on those.. then I can quilt a table runner that is sitting to the machine along with a baby quilt that is half quilted.. I know how lame but other projects needed mailing on time for swaps so it got pushed aside. I would rather start on a new project I love making the tops.. I hate quilting them. so.. wish me luck on finishing those three projects. I have the time so there should be no excuse. I will post pics as I finish each one. I am loving the pictures posted the star quilt in all those bright colors is gorgeous then of course the red one.. how fun that is and the one block wonder blue quilt how beautiful and elegant that will look and well all the rest.. I have never made a bag, a casserole carrier or any other fun things like that. One day.. when I find time.. and my ufo box is decimated. I need 100 weekends like this to truly decimate it.. it keeps growing!!

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
