Default New Year's Weekend Virtual Quilting

As requested, today starts the New Year's virtual quilting weekend. I plan to continue working on what I was working on the last VQW--BOMs and finishing quilt tops. After that weekend, I took about ten days off from quilting and would like to finish several things before the start of 2018. I plan to start a Swoon quilt the end of next week and don't want to feel guilty when I do ..

What are You working on this weekend? Are you getting an early start on next year's Christmas presents? Or maybe finishing some for this year??? Cleaning and organizing the sewing studio to start the new year off right? Shopping pre-inventory sales to save money and restock? Or planning what you want to work on in the new year? Whatever you're working on, please share with us. Pictures are welcome too.

The next regularly scheduled VQW is January 19-21, 2018.

What is a Swoon quilt? I will be sandwiching 5 small wall hangings and practicing my FMQ feathers.

I will be busy working on my Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt units and getting my fabric prepped for the next Boom swap. Also need to finish up my blocks for the Churn Dash swap, I have lots to keep me busy over the long weekend!

I'll be sandwiching a Christmas quilt and hopefully start quilting it. It's almost ready to do!

I'm glad you mentioned next Christmas, because that is precisely what I am doing. I've started two Boxed Squares. One is for Jim for next December, and the top is already close to done. (the blocks were finished and sat as UFO's for a couple of years). LOL I almost feel like I'm cheating.

I'll be working on the BH mystery (almost caught up) and binding quilts. I may do more LA'ing as I've put backings together with most of the tops I had waiting. Not sure though, as it's going to be subzero for highs and I have to go outside to get to the LA.

Last week I had told myself that this would be a good way to start off 2018, and now here it is. I am not prepared to start but will try to put away what I am caught up in. A good adolescent novel and can't tear myself away. I did make a list last week on what I want to try to accomplish for this weekend. Ok, I think that I will read for a little while longer and then start to piece later on in the afternoon. May come back with a pix or two. Happy New Years to everyone and happy sewing.
