    I am finishing a baby quilt for my niece. Her mother told me not to make anything for her wedding since they dont like home made stuff. Well I am doing it anyways and just sending it to her. Tough tea bags to mom

    I finished a warm wishes top last weekend with borders. I can't get over how much the borders really brought to the top. Looks great! I need to get that sucker basted this weekend. With no one here to help, I don't know what I'll be able to do. But I have some painters tape and my 505. Perhaps my young sons are up for some manual labor on the floor with mom and her "quilty stuff".

    I also want to work some more on 2 projects. I guess I could call them UFOs as they've been in process over a year. I'm working on these two until their finished. Once they're done, I can start on my table runners for Christmas this year. Hoping for next month. This weekend, post basting, I can get to piecing on them some more.

    I'm handpiecing a grandma flower garden today. Then hoping to get a top pieced for quilting next week. I'm working the LQS while the owner is in Lancaster so I should have plenty of uninterrupted quilting time on the horizon.

    I got the baby projects all done yesterday and DH is asking for those jeans and I promised him once this quiting was done for the new baby to be - he is next on my list - so as much as I hate shortening jeans - here goes! Ruining my weekend, but probably making me feel a whole lot better once it is done!!! I know he'll feel a whole lot better once he can pick and choose again without having to inspect everyone of his jeans to see if one pair is fit to wear to town without covering them with coveralls. lol So, you can find me between hems - pins - and not using my best thoughts at times; hate it - hate it - hate it!!!

    Just finished the "sandwich" for my grandson's quilt last night. Plan on starting the actual hand quilting as soon as the housework is done. It's a large queen size so I guess I'll be quilting for a while.

    I am doing free motion on borders on a quilt for my brother. If this gets done then I can bind it and get it done. Also working on block of the month Patriots & Petticoats. I also have 3 quilts to sandwich. Now this all won't get done this weekend but I know I will finish brother's quilt and BOM. ha ha ha

    Still struggling with the single bed-sized quilt for my daughter, which I've been trying to complete for the past 3 years! LOL. I'm totally new to machine quilting, hence taking too much time. Doing SITD as this is what I could manage currently.

    I am going to finish catching up on my Pinwheels..I started late and have been sewing leaders and enders between each 5" pinwheel square. I am using MSQ's method of sewing the 4 sides together, cutting them, arranging them and sewing them back together as pinwheels. So, there is going to be a lot of little 2.5" squares when I am done with the 50 pinwheels! I have no idea what to do with them but they are stash-busting for me! And as shown by the picture...I am piece-stitching!

    Please pass along ideas for all of these little squares! I want to make a scrappy quilt.....(with a pattern???)

    Binding a runner that's to be a piano scarf for a friend's piano! And probably using scraps to make matching coasters or mug rugs or something.

    Several days ago I was searching all over the place for some item and found a tote that had star blocks I made (hand sewn) about ten years ago as a project to do while traveling. Hadn't thought about them in years. So since I have so many unfinished projects, I decided it was time to add another one. I have pieced the top and am now working on scrap-pieced border. It's going to end up being a large throw sized quilt. Didn't have the energy or inclination to make more blocks to make a full-sized quilt. It's turning out really pretty as each star is different. Also found a mini-quilt I had made and decided (after binding it) that I wanted some more hand quilting on it. So did that too. The weather is beautiful here in Atlanta today so I got in the mood to get out of the winter dull-drums.

    Working on the 10 minute table runner. I got the instructions at the last shop hop that I went on in Feb. it takes only two fabrics, & yes only ten minutes to make. Counting the cutting. No batting, so you don't quilt it. Easy to do for different holidays & seasons.

    I'm making more cord bowls as in my avatar, except that I am covering them this time with the scraps left over from my quilts. Our exhibition is in August, so I need to get cracking. Have made three so far.

    Our local hospice center is in need of small comfort pillows for their patients and they need them right away. That's all I am going to work on all weekend.

    I am finished a braid quilt top and I am working on the backing that is scrappy and I am hoping I have enough of the material to get the backing done with the same material I used on the front.
    We'll see... I needed a break so thought I'd come here..
