    Thanks for the kick in the rear with this VQW! I have a quilt that needs the binding finished up. I am one of those who can only work on one project at a time! Hopefully I can finish it and get one more Christmas gift cut out.

    Oriental Quilt

    I just finished making a herd of ponies for Etsy and want to get back to the main quilt I've been working on for months. The colors in real life are a lot brighter than the picture. I hope the picture shows up.

    Also need to finish trimming a crochet scarf for the veterans and work on blocks for my daughter's pinwheel quilt.

    Love the peacock batik and blue compass squares the rest of you did!

    Well I'm here. Got up late today, kids got up and just watched TV for a bit while letting mom and dad sleep for a change. Just finished up breakfast, laundry is started, kitchen picked up till lunch, and just need to tidy up the blankets and stuff in the living from where all the troops were watching cartoons this morning then time to sew. Planning on finishing up swap items today. Happy sewing.

    Thank you!

    Will somebody PLEASE turn off my brain!!! I just thought of something else that HAS to be quilted in this quilt! I'll give a short background. This quilt is for my Goddaughter, who at age 14 is in her third year of high school She has had the female lead in the fall play all 3 years. She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I really wanted to be there this year for her, but I'm in San Antonio. So. . .I made this quilt for her. Her favorite color is red & I would love to present her with a big bouquet of flowers, but this will have to do.

    What I decided I needed to quilt in the borders are the titles of the 3 plays she's acted in: Arsenic & Old Lace (was one of the 2 sisters - 2011, The Miracle Worker (was Helen Keller) - 2012 & The Man Who Came to Dinner (Sheridan Whiteside's assistant) - 2013. The play opened last night & runs through Sunday. This is a large high school & we are so proud of her. Her Mom is my BFF!

    The mess isn't bad. It's the grunge. I needed to dust and mop anyway ;-) It's the short warning that gets to me. I'll be by at the end of the day to admire everyone's progress.

    Fantastic your OBW quilt. What quilt book would you recommend to learn to make such an awesome quilt? BTW and how many yards of this fabric did you buy?

    After a slow start this morning, I am plugging right along... I slept in this am because I rarely get to do that, then hemmed a pair of jeans, cut out two cloth book panels to sew up for the little GKs for Christmas, and did some stitch in the ditch quilting and raw edge applique on a small hanging which is now ready for binding.

    First time doing the raw edge applique, it turned out pretty good. There were lots of turns and I was using a blanket stitch so I lost the edge a couple of times, but it is good enough for me.

    Love seeing all the projects!

    I have a majorly cranky baby on my hands so no sewing for me till bedtime. Lots of shrek watching and spying on what y'all are working on.

    If I can I'm hoping to get the second table topper laid out to out together. Then hunt through my tiny stash for backing to quilt them up. My old man cat will appreciate some new festive sleeping pads. Lol

    I have the One Block Wonder Cubed book, but there is a blogger who just did a series of posts on how to put together one of these quilts. The address is http://quilterinthecloset.blogspot.com/ so check her archived posts for details.

    Ok, sorry I missed the posting for this Virtual Quilt Along. I am joining in for the rest of today and tomorrow. I am preparing to go to my annual fall Quilt Retreat, so I will be pulling things together. Also working on a couple of stray projects. Pics later....

    I absolutely love that red quilt.

    I just finished a short break for food (needed more energy) and am getting ready to go back into my cave. So far today I was able to finish one QFK top and cut and press backing for it and one other. I hope to get the second one pieced today so I can cut strips for a rail fence this evening.

    I just love these weekends as I get so motivated.
