    Virtual Quilting anyone?? To hot to play outside.

    I am going to work on my butterfly quilt. I have everything laid out on the livingroom floor when my daughter inlaw called to see if I can dogsit...of course...good thing I have a sewing room. I just finished laying it out on the floor in there..it fits...Yah...hotter than the livingroom as the AC does not work well in the sewing room but I did dig out a fan. I will take pictures once I finish cutting out the white material blocks. I have changed my mind so many times while designing this..the white blocks were my husbands idea. he loves to have input on my quilts..LOL wish he would like and help cut the fabric. Can't wait to see how this comes out. No idea who I am giving this to or how big it will end up. Happy quilting everyone!!

    I will definetely join you!

    I love your blocks and lay out choice. This quilt is going to be spectacular.

    I am currently working on a Double Irish Chain quilt top for a very special friend of mine. I have all but one block sewn together ( I miss counted). LOL. Perhaps later on today, I will sit down and get it assembled. But, early this morning, I began setting up my Quilting Motif on tear away stabilizer squares. If I accomplish completing all of the sketches, I will be thrilled for today. I have only definetely decided on the center section and still have to decide on the remainder of the block. I do have a general idea though.

    Thought I would share photos and really keep myself motivated! I apologize for my pictures taking up a ton of space, I really need to sit down and resize....but something else always comes along first. I will check back in a little while to see how everyone else is doing!

    Beautiful butterfly quilt!! I have been busy today. I went to Joannes to get what I needed to make my girls their backpacks, and the batting for potholders. i have been organizing my stash and have a box of pieces to press, cut and organize, so i know what I have to work with for scrappy quilts. In between when I have to stop for a break, since I lose breath easily, I work on hand quilting a baby quilt for my daughter's best friend..A little of this and a little of that!!

    I just got back from going to the fabric storm in the worst lighting storm I have ever seen. One of the bolts hit the street right in front of us and then a big boom. Thought I was going to have a heartattack. We made it to the store and thankfully they had two yards left bought the two even though I just need 4 11 inch blocks. Then I bought a bunch of other fabrics...Yikes..haven't done that in ages...

    I'm so glad you were able to get the fabric to complete your quilt I love the butterflies! Glad the lightning didn't strike you. That was frightening! Can't wait to see what you make with the other fabric you purchased.

    So glad you found the fabric that you needed. I still have 3 blocks to finish tracing the center. Life sometimes gets in the way of quilting. LOL. Hubby is finishing getting dinner ready; after dishes I should have the remainder of the evening to finish my tracing and get ready for quilting them tomorrow.

    CoyoteMagic how fabulous your husband is involved in your quilting. Just the other day, my hubby actually made the comment that he has been thinking about learning to quilt since becoming disabled. I think it would be great, but will have to wait and see what happens.

I am actually getting excited about moving, and decorating a new smaller easier to take care of home..hoping to get a 2BR mobile in a nice family park..Was thinking about fabric just like your cows for the kitchen!! So glad you found what you needed!

    I have mega cleaning to do this week. Lots of family coming in end of the week and must have the clutter corralled--I want to sew instead. That's okay cuz sis is bringing her machine and we can sew together--we never get to so it will be fun.
