    This is my first chance to get upstairs. for the virtual quilt retreat day. I have cut a bunch of 1 1/2" white strips to go on the batik strips. My next goal is to sew the rows together on the wonky log cabin UFO. Pictures to follow by the end of the day,
    Talk with you all later, I hear a machine calling.

    I'm in for today also!

    First I need to make some machine embroidered labels for a couple of otherwise finished pieces. One is a table topper, the other a baby quilt for a grand-niece on the way.

    After that I need to get started on selecting fabric and threads for a heavily quilted mule head portrait art quilt for a new friend from Texas I rode with a couple of weeks ago in the Superstitions. I've been working on drawing up the pattern and quilting plan from a photo and am ready to get started. This will be the second one I've done like this and I'm hoping to refine my techniques a bit. Here's a pic of the first one: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...e-t209642.html

    Happy quilting day everyone!

    I can't find post either. My list is:

    Finish tying a baby quilt for a local organization called Bundles of Love.
    Finish a baby quilt top, sandwich it, pillowcase turn it, and tie for my church group
    Take a deep breath and get the flying geese part done on Judy's mystery train quilt. It will be my first time sewing flying geese.
    Go through Easter/spring fabrics that were donated and choose pattern and size of quilt.

    During break times, I will be rearranging/moving things in my sewing area.

    Couldn't find the post either, but I'm ready to go: Candles lit, marathon sewing playlist loaded up, new needles, new blades..yep ready to go. Here's my list for today:
    Finish piecing a seminole border for my double irish chain, attach the borders and then put the sashing on my "wedding memories" quilt and maybe get it assembled.
    If I get that done I have a table runner all cut out and I would like to get that finished up.
    .....and we're off!!

    Taking a break. I have all 4 QFKs ready to quilt. The pinning is the worst part. I miss my long arm; can't wait for it to get fixed.

    I'm here today! Whew, almost missed this one. I was planning grocery list and meal preparation; almost headed out to grocery store. I will do that tomorrow. Today, I am going to join the group and quilt. I am going to put two borders on the long sides of my quilt, then the top will be done. After that I am going to play with my DWR and make a block or two to see how that is going to go. The DWR will be my next project for son's wedding in July. Will post pictures shortly.

    Have fun today!!!

    taking a break, just cannot get into the "sewing moment" today, having a cupa cappocino (instant), sewing in a new room feels awkward - I got used to the tiny nook where the computer was only 3 steps away from the sewing. I will have to bring my laptop from work and set it up in the "sewing room to be" room. I set the timer by my computer for 15 minutes, then it is back to the UFO. Be back around lunch time

    I believe a DWR is a double wedding ring quilt.

    Well I'm in!! I have several projects going on today. So in this order; I'm going to work on:

    1.) Cut & make 8 Mystery blocks that I'm 2 weeks behind on.
    2.) I have to do the 3 B's on a Feb. Mini that is a gift.
    3.) Put 3 rows of hand quilting on my "Sunflowers & Crows" piece
    4.) Finish Appliqueing the last 2 items on a lottery block at evening TV Time

    There is more but I'll be lucky to get all this done. I'll be sure to keep ya all up to date as I progress. Now DH has put food on the table, so I'm off and running to get my 1st cuppa of Joe too.

    Toodles,
    Tricia

    After lunch I made a couple of Crumb blocks, http://quiltville.blogspot.co.uk/200...bs-crumbs.html from the masses of triangles that you get from the Prairies Chicken and other scraps, so my Scrap boxes are looking quite diminished and I haven't got anywhere near finished with the projects, challenge is well on the way to being met

    Binding is on 2 quilts. I'm taking a break for lunch, and then doing some sewing. Need a break from the hand work. Glad to see lots of people on-board today!

    I am working on my first flying geese blocks today - making a kit I purchased last year at a show. I have seen easier ways online to make geese, but the kit had some fabric precut so it limited my options in construction methods.

    So far, they look pretty good, except for one that is not straight across the top ( not sure exactly what happened there) but it will probably take the rest of the day to finish them all!

    Number one on my list is done. I have the top done for the second item on my list. Time to go outside and scrape some ice from the driveway before the next snow arrives.

    I am still sitting on the fence as to whether I will do an ES or not. I sort of like the design, just dont like the fabric choices...I want to replace that busy black/white with something else. It drives my eyes crazy on the ones I have seen so far What did you choose for colors? I saw one that someone did with more tone on tone creamy colors to replace the black/white and that was very pretty.

    Good luck!

    I got frustrated with the pp I am working on, so I am going thru my Farmers Wife CD to choose the blocks for my piece "The Farmers Daughter" I think some of the blocks are just plain yuck and some of the pp instructions for doing them even stranger! LOL
