It was really hard not to rip open the RR package yesterday, but today I'm going to finish putting together the block baggies for the Frolic UFO and clean up a bit first.
Knees that are not working well are a pain. Literally. My experience was to keep moving, just a little, even if it means setting a timer to remind you to get up and walk around the house just a little. But on the other hand exercising you ability to hold off on the RR project until getting some of the Frolic under control is to be commended. Hang in there and keep after your Frolic.

RobR that is a truly amazing butterfly - I am in awe!

I finished the borders on my Paddington quilt!!! I'm so excited! I was expecting it to take a lot longer than it did - turns out the once I got started it went surprisingly smoothly

I am so pleased to have finished the flimsy for this one. With it being hexagons I found it tricky when I first started (8 years ago, lol) and it got put to one side. So it would appear that my skills have improved over the years

Thank you for hosting Raggiemom, and I look forward to joining in the next VQW - I don't have a quilting group, so I really enjoy seeing what everyone else is working on - fantastic work is being done here.

Is there a pattern name or video available to watch on this mask? It looks like it would be great to make for the elementary school here. I have been making different styles of masks but this one with a bead seems it might be something kids could relate to.

Sorry, no pattern - I've done several different styles and then change the pattern based on feedback. For the elementary age kids I start with a 4 x 6 inch rectangle (small) or a 5 x 7 inch. 2 layers, 2 pleats on each side. 10" elastics, 12" to 15" twill tape for neck strap.

Just wanted to thank Raggiemom for starting the thread and everyone who participates. I was a happy solo quilter for years and then I found the joys of working with and being around people who understood what I was doing, I'm lucky to have a weekly small group (even if we didn't meet for a couple of months during covid), but I really enjoy these virtual weekends.

In some ways, it's not really a motivator -- it's just a lot more fun when I can take breaks and see what the other people have been doing, and that's the motivation. Quilt pox can still be spread virtually

Thanks Raggiemom, for hosting another great weekend of quilting and sewing. Sorry this one got passed me but some how I was focus on the Labor Day date and totally forgot about this one. I was having some health issue this weekend anyway. The main thing is that I've noted my phone and laptop calendar and I'll be all set for it.

Good work to all that join the weekend and some gorgeous projects resulted from it, see you in a couple weeks and stay safe everyone
