Default Virtual quilting weekend 9/5-9/8/20

Good morning! Welcome to a bonus VQW. What are your plans this weekend? I will be popping in and out this weekend. My husband and I are hoping to do some small house repairs but I also have quilting to do. I hope to finish stitching a hanging sleeve and start cutting EPP for our guild paint chip challenge. And my ufo this month is an appliqué project. It would be awesome to get the shapes traced.

i hope this is a productive weekend for us! 🙂

Thanks for hosting, Heather! I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone is working on.

I’m still trying to finish Big Butterfly. I took out some quilting that I did early on to stabilize it while doing the thread painting, have some more to take out, then the final quilting to do on it. I also have two quilts that need hanging sleeves and labels. And, my scrap bucket is overflowing, so I need to go through that and sort things out.

I've got another day helping DH on a roofing project, and then hope I'll have a three day weekend to sew! I want to finish the emboridery on the Round Robbin quilt top, not sure what I'll do other than that. Maybe work on a UFO - I've got one that is a lot of mindless sewing so that would be good to do while babysitting the embroidery machine.

Thanks for hosting again! Last weekend I started my first new project this year, hoping to get some machine time in on an extremely frustrating quilt, in for a penny in for a pound!! I hope to make some excellent progress on it so I can be done with it. I always look forward to seeing what everyone is working on, hopefully I will have something to share by the end of the VQW.

Thanks for hosting Raggiemom. I desperately need to finish an oversized queen string top. It is going to be a Christmas present for DD and SIL. I have the last 4 rows sewn, and just need to put it all together. I also have some panels for donation quilts, that need to be blocked into shape and bordered. And my head is full of ideas for oldest DGD's Christmas quilt. I finished youngest DGD's last week. DH has yard work and supper will be leftovers so I just might get most of the day to sew.

Good morning Heather and all the other lovely quilters out there.

My goals this weekend, to complete several projects that only need a few things done to them to complete them. 1) put black binding on a fall quilt; 2) put binding on A project Linus quilt; 3). Sew together 3 project Linus tops; 4). Quilt a pink and black hearts for Project Linus. 5) quilt a QOV top on my long arm (just an ETE pattern. 6) Finish 12 blocks on my (either it’s call 100 block challenge or 15 day challenge?) and then square and sew together. And maybe get it quilted. 7) cut out 16 - 10 blocks to add to 45 blocks to make a very dark brown top. The guy wanted it that way. So that’s what I’m doing. If I get over 1/2 of these items completed I will be happy.

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

Thanks for hosting again, Heather!

I will be working on my Harmony quilt top. It is a pattern by GE Designs and was a one day Sew Along in August.

i look forward to the conversations and pictures.

Happy sewing!

Hello VQW friends! I have lots of things to work on this weekend. There's Wonky Wishes just back from the longarmer waiting for binding. I have dived into making the Jane Stickle quilt and am really enjoying making those blocks and triangles. Last night I spray basted a lap quilt for a local women's shelter, so it needs quilting.
Looking forward to seeing our progress!

How lovely to be with you all again this weekend.

I'm about to turn on the music and put the last four edges around my current round robin. I've been going back and forth, do I really finish this with a long .5" finished edge as designed? I chickened out and am going to cut the edges at 2" instead of 1" to allow the next person to be able to have some adjustment for the size of their round. As I say, you can cut down but you can't cut up. Now that I've committed to my course of action, it won't take long.

After that I'm ready to get out my Frolic UFO. So far I've been able to find the mistake, make the missing pieces, and each block has all the sub-units combined into a baggie. Still a lot involved in putting the sub-units together into the blocks but I consider this the fun stage, all the hard work pieces starting to form the design.

This weekend is my actual birthday, I've never been really big on birthdays and with Labor Day I always had a holiday/day off so close enough. Usually not even a card at this point but we'll go out for a nicer than usual dinner. Since I like to plan ahead, a few years ago (57) I announced that in 2020 I'd be 60 and I expected at least a card! We aren't leaving until mid-month but my husband has planned a trip, yes we are going to travel during the plague. For the most part we will be self-contained driving and decided that small owner operated AirBnBs were the best option for us in many ways. We'll be a week on the road and a week self quarantined after that.

I will be going out on my actual birthday to one of our favorite places, but it is really that we are taking a friend of his from work out. He's moving out of the area, back home to Wisconsin. It's how the timing worked out and I am happy to share. I'm starting to wonder about my husband, he doesn't make many friends and within 2 years they all move far, far away....

Will enjoy doing the satin stitching around the Sept. penguin BOM between a few errands....... I also decided yesterday I would like to get my tote of scraps out of the tote and into a drawer, so will see if I can find places for everything else that is already in that drawer before I get too excited.
