    @ DebraK: Both those stars are great together and alone. I like the fabrics you are using and would be excited to make 37, did you say 37, more blocks.

    I haven't gotten much done today. Had to take my dog to the vet and now I'm watching the Michigan/Michigan State game, but I did get one more row done on my queen sized top. Two more to go.

    Cynicalbeauty- I love the colors of your quilt, please show us the completed top when its done.

    I have glue basted my faded charms quilt, gone to the thrift store and bought 2 quilting books and a bag of sheets and pillow cases- some lovely pillow cases to cut up for my vintage sheet quilt that I am collecting fabric for. Also went to the fabric store for 1/2 price thread and a new seam ripper as mine is very old.

    Not getting alot finished so far. DH is down with a chest cold, my mother showed up unexpectedly to pick up another one of my kids so had to pack and such. Now that the two older ones are gone the smaller two are running around with nothing to do they say. So been taking breaks to play games with them, get out the beads for them to play, and letting one of them help with some of the painting that needed done on a swap item. Hoping to get more done later once they are settled and in bed.

    i am working on finishing the border and then i think he needs more thread painting in the blue sections. He is a wall hanging so the fact that he is turning out to be a bit stiff is okay.

    That Red Quilt - the quilting is finally finished. I also stitched around the outer edge to secure them before trimming & have trimmed it up. However, I don't have enough fabric for the batting so will have to get some more really soon. In the mean time, I'm gonna play with my Go! Baby. I have 2 large tubs of scraps to chop up.

    I got up early and made a ottoman quilt before the hubby got up. I then donated two bags of scraps. I have been having a tough time using my fabrics since I have it in my head to use up my scraps first...so I decided to donate more....so now I am cutting up my baliks and hope to have them cut up by tomorrow and start a King size quilt for our bedroom. So glad I got rid of my scraps...I have lots of fabrics and was getting sick of using the some ones all the time, even though it is a nice feeling using them.

    Great projects everyone. I am quilting a quilt for my granddaughter's birthday. It is next Saturday. I am also going to use up the extra squares for a quilt for her American girl doll. Good thing I work well under pressure. I'll take pics tomorrow.
    Happy Quilting.

    Still plugging away at mine, although it is slow going. No screaming kids or visiting in-laws but I've had a cold for a week and now its settled in my lungs, giving me a nasty case of bronchitis. But I did do some more flying geese for the stars quilt. Anybody know any good home remedys for bronchitis? The only thing I can find online is get lots of rest and drink water.

    I will post update pics tomorrow evening, hoping to get a little bit more done.

    Well, I had great hopes when this thread began. Woke up this morning to wind and rain. Perfect quilting weather . . . oops . . . we lost power for several hours. Well, at least I got a start on a knit hat for DGD. When the power came back on, did some machine embroidery nativity figures. They will be a flannel board for DGD. About the only quilting progress I made was to get some red fabric color-set (I hope) so I can use it in a quilted tree skirt for DD (housewarming gift). When I finish the nativity figures, I'll be able to get the tree skirt fabric cut up and start piecing. (The embroidery machine sits on my cutting table when in use.)

    I just love all the projects posted here. Hope those of you with little ones can fit in at least a few minutes. In the meantime, enjoy them while they are home. Mine are gone, and I really miss them!

    I spent the day at the International Quilt Festival, Houston! It was a wonderful day. Saw Eleanor Burns, purchased her new wonky log cabin template, saw Ricky Tims & Alex Anderson and won a $10 gift certificate to Superior Threads From The Quilt Show. Came home tired and broke. Picked up my machine from a servicing - ready to sandwich/quilt a lap quilt tomorrow. the whole weekend spent in quilt heaven.
    Quilting makes me happy!..

    Scraps & Crumbs

    I'm working on a Mystery Quilt, and a bunch of Bonnie Hunter inspired scrap blocks, between football games. I need to start machine quilting a child's quilt that is a gift. And I'm including a recently finished Quilt of Valor top that I'm shipping to the LA assigned to me next week.

    Happy Quilting 'Virtual Retreater's"

    I got my FiL's quilt sewn together, sandwiched, and about half of it tied. Going to try to rest tomorrow--still struggling to get over sinus and ear infections, and I've got to be better to work on Monday.
    Courtesy is not optional.

    mdall. Love your use of recycled finds. Makes me want to go to thrift store for shoes. Gave away my heals 20 yrs ago, had broken toe that gave me a hammer toe and neuroma. Too bad, had to give up those foot torturers....such a shame.

    AngeliaNR, I've struggled with sinus infections for 30 yrs. One time it got so bad, I couldn't even drive. After DH took me to the doctor, DH had to tell me what I was suppose to do. I've also heard of the infection going into the brain. So, don't dismiss this, get to the doctor.

    Now, when I get a sinus headache, I take decongestant and saline nasal spray. Finally found something that works for me to avoid the infections.

    You have been busy. Beautiful projects.

    *I started Thursay evening and finished a Christmas wreath; hanging pocket and label too.
    *Friday we had errands; for my new "woman cave" we picked up products to stain door, drapes and hardware, bought an area rug on sale and discount too, got some sequins to put flowers in christmas wreath, bought basil for kitchen window (got those planted), dropped off sewing machine for repairs, picked up another sewing machine from service and repair (honest, I'm really not hard on machines, but when it rains it pours) then....drum roll..... bought and picked up a used Horn Quilter's Dream cabinet. Got home exhausted. Tried to put the studio back together.....No actual sewing.
    * Today I taught a one person class. In the PM she was doing mostly practicing, so I got out a project and did some quilting on a Thanksgiving wall hanging. Then went shopping for more drapery (black out curtain....don't want my fabric stash fading) for the "woman cave" and more plants: cyclamen, leeks and cilantro. Got those planted and going to get my studio back together.
    *Tonight we get an extra hour, no more daylight savings time. Then church and Bible study. So I think my Virtual Quilt Weekend is over.

    See ya next time.

    Mine will be red and green. These have been a leader / ender project for me, but sometimes you gotta stop and tidy it up!

    My hubby and I stopped at an antique shop that was next to the dutch bakery. (had to stop and by a few goodies and coffee) and how...there was a booth selling a bunch of twin size postage stamp tops...perfect shape...the seams matched perfectly. old fabrics but in perfect shape. They were only 25.00 a piece. If I was not a quilter I would get one. There were about 10 being sold. They also had some tied ones there all old fabric but in perfect shape. The funny thing is was they were back in a corner on a self that I did not see...the hubby came and found me to show me...LOL...I would love to have bought block pieces but not really interested in the whole top being done.

    Ok...decided I have to go to the Quilt shop...we are going to be driving by there anyways today. Its and hour away...but my favorite shop in Pelham, NH Bits and Pieces. I have a bunch of batiks that I have decided to use and was going to use grey cotton but slept on it..and decided to bit the bullet and buy a few yards of grey batik of the strips - I am making the falling charms except my blocks are 6 1/2 inches - The fabric is so pretty that I wanted larger blocks. I wanted to use 8 inch but the hubby likes the 6 1/2 inch. This will be for the king size quilt that I am making. In the winter two quilts are just perfect....for these cold winters.
