    Let the Virtual Quilt Weekend Begin...

    While I realize it's only Thursday night here in the US, I wanted to make sure I included our overseas friends so I'm starting this thread a little early. But everyone is invited to begin now if they want

    Welcome to Virtual Quilt Weekend. Please come and go as is convenient for you over the course of the next 3 days. Let us know what you plan to work on and show us pictures of your progress. I'm working on various holiday projects. I prepped a few today so I can start right in sewing tomorrow.

    Let's see how much we all get done this weekend.

    I got two quilts back from the LAQ today, so I'm busy admiring them tonight! I did get a flannel quilt sandwiched today for tying, and I sewed a bunch of 3.5 inch squares together for a future project. Probably work on both this weekend--plus an experiment in making napkins.

    I'm in, sort of. Nanowrimo also starts this weekend but I have a cold so I will be staying in. However, in between writing a novel, I would like to get this quilt top completely put together.Name:  2007-02-12 16.31.58sm.jpg

    The other projects I might be working on this weekend are my scrappy flying geese for my stars quilt and my stormy sea drunkard's path quilt

    All your projects are gorgeous but I especially love your OBW. What was the original fabric?

    OK, I'm ready. I just checked my little quilting den and I have 2 pillowcases half done, 2 1/2 small quilts to bind and 1 QFK all cut out. After I whip them all out I can cut some more QFKs. I love VQWs...I seem to get so much done just trying to keep up with all of you.

    Thank you! Here is a photo of the original. I found it at JoAnns, they also have it in a couple other colors.

    I'll join you after work tomorrow (Friday). I'm working on a postage stamp quilt and making H blocks (9 patch variation) for a later quilt.

    Love the posted quilts so far and the fabric for the OBW. I'd love to use it as is, instead of cutting it up so small.

    I hope to finish a fabric box. Recent surgery has me slow to recover, but I just might get the fabric box done!!!! Thanks for the inspiration.

    Wow! some great looking projects, Kaelyn.

    I'm still piecing on that little scrappy I showed you all last time. DH saw it and decided that the quilt needed to be bigger, and that we needed to keep it. Okay, but I still have to make a baby quilt to give away.

    Kaelyn, your OBW is exquisite! And you found that fabric at JoAnn's? I am on a fabric diet but I can see I am going to have to make an exception for this blue fabric. I haven't done a OBW yet but your's certainly is inspiring me.

    OK, I am in. I have to tailor the sleeves on a dress jacket and a gorgeous blouse for my friend at church. That is a must since she already paid me. LOL Then, I am going to quilt some fabric to make a shoulder throw for my 85 year old Mom. Then, I have a million things I want to work on: fabric quilted boxes; purse for DGD, doll size quilts for the church bazaar that our table will be earning money for batting and backing to make quilts for those in need, quilted place mats to cover the trays we use in the living room. The list really goes on but these are the first items. I am baking a casserole size blueberry pie for my DH to take on his hunting visit with his nephews and grandnephews. I am sure it will be gone by tomorrow night!

    Will plan to join you tomorrow. Working on a wall hanging now. Will have to take pix with my cell phone, then text them to my DD who in turn will email them to me so I can upload them to the forum. (I have a "dumb" phone, not a smartphone, so I can't post directly from the phone to the forum ). Also need to figure out to border or not a string quilt, so count me in!

    OMGsh! I would have had a very hard time cutting into that gorgeous fabric.. Your blocks are beautiful.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I'll join you (off and on) this weekend! We will be busy with other things too this weekend.

    I already started by loading a small child's quilt that needs to be quilted and bound. Then there's 5 pairs of pants to hem....does that count????? Then there's a large child's quilt I need to quilt and bind.
    If I can get that all done (or nearly done) by Sunday night, I'd be a happy quilter!

    Greetings!

    Love seeing all the beautiful projects being created!

    I just finished a quilted casserole carrier (second one this week) and plan to continue stitching out some machine embroidery nativity figures. Then I have some coasters to stitch up. Next, I want to get a start on a tree skirt which will be a housewarming gift for DD#2. First, I want to pre-wash the red fabric with a color catcher. Those projects will keep me busy all weekend.

    I'm in too. Tomorrow Nancia is going to be here with me, so maybe we can join in. Don't know yet what I will be doing, but have plenty of things that I could work on.

    Love this DebraK even though it makes my eyes go funny.
    I'm sure it wouldn't do that in person...just on my monitor.

    DebraK those looks like amazing projects! I think I'll add the Starburst quilt along to my "To Do" list.

    I'm very excited to hear about everyone's projects, more pics people!

    I am in right after I go grocery shopping and get the house cleaned back up. I have been feeling a little under the weather for the past two days but plan on getting everything done tomorrow so I can have all day Saturday to join in. Sunday I have part of the day.

    I am planning on finishing up my SS packages and then onto that Twisted Tree that keeps looming over me. See all of you then. Happy sewing and someone please throw a couple of stitches for me tomorrow. Ill pick up some goodies for us to snack on while in town. Any requests?

    Just found out my FiL is cold--he lives in Florida, but is in his late 80s. So a plaid flannel quilt moves up in the queue! I have the fabric, so I'll try to cut it out tomorrow.

    I've a sinus infection and both ears infected as well,so I'm working kind of slowly. Hoping the antibiotics will kick in so I can make some accomplishments this weekend.

    Love your vibrant, scrappy stars! And your stormy sea fabrics are so well chosen and placed!
