I put a quilt top together and then, out of exasperation with my fabrics lying everywhere, I cleaned up a bookcase and ruler folded a bunch of fabric. The folded "bolts" all fit lengthwise on the shelves of the bookcase... yay! Still so much more to organize.

I think I'll be quilting tops tomorrow. That, and cutting scrap squares and strips.

You are all welcome, VQWs are good for me, I get stuff done so I'm happy to start them. Sounds like there is quite a variety of quilt related activities happening. Today has been fairly productive. I finished sorting the papers and templates for Distinctive Dresdens (English paper piecing project). The pieces are so close in size, some are like 1/16 different, so it was not an enjoyable process. One of the LQS is thinking about doing Distinctive Dresdens as a quilt along and I wanted to be ready. I also bound a queen sized quilt and made a flying geese border and attached it for my April UFO. Tomorrow will be mostly hand work I think.

I will be quilting on Sunday, and I have tops to baste and quilt. four of them so I don't know which I will do first. Happy quilting this week end.

Default Turning in for the night!

Most of today was homeschooling and a trip to the dentist.

Today I trimmed and made binding for one quilt and did a little organizing. Tomorrow I will get back to the basket blocks!

I've got to replace the brushes in my favorite old girl (15-91) and hope that fixes the problem. If not, I'm going to have to find a place to buy a reconditioned potted motor. That's got to wait for now, though - basting quilts first!
She's my old Dressmaker SS2402 - still don't know who made her, definitely not Singer, I've asked all the big companies, closest information I could find was she's somewhere around a 1975-76 and she's probably a Japan model. Have had her for a while, we've been around the block a few times together. Still have to find the light assembly, someone stole it before I had it and then find the cam set and she'll finally be a complete machine again. It's been slow and meticulous, but she's purring like a kitten. Love this machine to the moon and back!

I am watching my 7mo grand daughter over the weekend, so no quilting time for me. ...Her pack and play is set up in my sewing room...oh she's up. Have fun!

Copycat, enjoy every minute with your DGD...7 months is a fun age, but I guess they all are fun ages.

Since DH is away this weekend I can sew as much as I want and not feel guilty. I have 11 of my 21 rows done on a king size quilt Iím working on. The pictures donít do it justice as it looks gray but they are blues and cream. Edyta Sitarís Perfect Union.
I did fix the star point in the lower right corner before piecing. 🤪

jmoore - love the quilt so far. Those are the same colors I made for son's wedding 17 years ago.

So much fun hearing from everyone. Love seeing Kristijoy’s baskets and jmoore’s version of Perfect Union and Railroadersbrat’s spiffy restored dressmaker sewing machine.

I got about 2/3 of the quilting done on the big art piece. Hope to finish the preliminary quilting on it today and then it goes back into the painting studio for some “gilding the lily” painting before being sandwiched with another layer of batting and a backing for the final quilting. I also want to get more of the QST blocks completed for my April Debbie Brown quilt- I’m trying to stay on top of completing these quilts from start to finish each month as they are quick, easy, use up lots of scraps and provide me with a steady supply of pieced tops to use when trying out new quilting designs.
