    Virtual Quilting Weekend--12/19 to 12/22

    Well, this weekend is the last virtual quilting weekend of 2014! Do you still have some Christmas presents to work on? Or maybe you're all finished and would like to make yourself a little something. Whatever you're working on, please feel free to join us for the weekend. For those who haven't participated before, just post what you're working on this weekend and share pictures if you can. We love to see what others are working on. Many of us take inspiration and get additional ideas from these weekends!

    I have a couple projects in progress that I'm going to work on. I do need to run to the LQS this morning to pick up my stuffed stocking.

    I'll check back in a little while...

    Ooooh that sounds like so much fun! I do have to run out this morning, to do a couple of things, but I don't really have much planned for the week end. I am working on some very interesting (to me) coasters and shall post a photo. I also have one table topper that needs the rest of the threads pulled in and one runner that needs the quilting finished. I would be thrilled if I could get them all done. And I really have to finish the Babbo Natale for DD's tree. I've cut down the pattern so that it will make a nice ornament but it is fiddly to work with.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I'm home sick today with a cold but if I feel better I'll probably start sewing. In the meantime I have a top that needs to be marked, which I usually find completely tedious, but is probably suited for my energy level today.
    Fabric just came for some new pillows and those will be my project for this weekend!

    Well, I am going to hand sew the binding on a small project for DDIL, and then I am going to play on my Tiara all weekend! I have a table runner (for me) all basted and ready to go. After that, I will work on a looooong table runner for a friends's B&B island. It is WOF wide and 12 feet long. She didn't want it pieced so it is just one fabric on top and another on the bottom - reversible - so the fun will be the FMQ. Touch base later! Have fun all!

    I finished this top this week and the back is pieced. I have to order a batt and I'm going to wait until the first of the year to get the batting to finish it.

    I finished a tote bag yesterday, wrapped it and mailed it out. I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of it. This weekend I'm starting yet another gray and white baby quilt. What is it with everyone wanting gray baby quilts.

    Your hexie is beautiful. What a treasure for your DGD.

    I am greatly hoping to get to my sewing machine this weekend quilting a few things and finishing up some doll clothes for the 18" doll we are giving to my DGD. It will be so fun to see her open her present.

    This is a good day for sewing in.) It's raining here .... and a bit chilly. I'm working on hand stitching a binding on the prayer quilt that I am trying to finish for a friend who is in chemo. Not sure about the rest of the weekend.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    I might get a chance to join in this weekend. I have to finish 1 more customer quilt for Christmas (promised to deliver it on Sunday). But after that's done, I should have some quilting time. Hoping to finish up my current project. Will post a photo later, once I create one that doesn't break the board rules with my watermark.

    Great bag - I like that the handles go all the way to bottom of bag; makes it much sturdier. I have got the first row of my quilt done but it is bedtime here now so I will take photo tomorrow and log in to see what you are all up to.

    Well I will be packing which includes preparing some sewing items to take to work on while at my Mom's house. I think I will try and do the cutting for the BH MQ step 4 and what is left for step 3. But first priority tonight is to finish hand sewing the binding on Christmas present quilt for my Mom.

    Well, I have a bunch of quilt blocks squared up and ready to assemble in the new year. I made a Christmas skirt to wear to church Sunday. I'm not sure it's a very flattering style on me though so we'll see if I end up actually wearing it or not! My big goal this weekend is to get a QoV top done. I've cut out the pieces and stitched the first set together. Tomorrow is my husband's birthday so I have a few things to do tonight to get ready for that.

    Love the tote bag!
