    Virtual Quilting Weekend--April 19-21, 2019

    Welcome to Virtual Quilting Weekend. I look forward to quilting with everyone this weekend and hopefully making some progress on several projects. I have two quilt tops that I would like to piece together and then a couple block of the weeks and month to catch up. They are actually the current blocks so I'm not really behind which is great!

    So what are you working on? Please share and let us know

    Next VQW is May 24-27.

    I'm in! I will be getting some more blocks done on my HST Flying Geese. By the way I am calling it "From Canada". Every other row will be in the opposite direction.

    Thank you, Raggiemom! I'm in. I just finished making 5 kid size quilt tops. I hope to sandwich them this weekend, tie them, and find the fabric from stash to bind them.

    This is Easter weekend, so lots of other things are going on, but I'll have bunches of free time for quilting, too.

    Yay! Me too! I’m working on a UFO that is almost finished. If I get that done tomorrow then I’ll go through my UFO pile and look for another one to work on. And I’ve got a pile of scraps to deal with as well.

    Thanks for hosting raggiemom.

    I'll try to join in this weekend. I want to finish appliquing the teddy bear blocks for my new Baby's quilt. I would be thrilled if I got as far as putting the sashing on too, but I have a lot of family stuff going on this weekend as well.Name:  IMG_20190329_154236486.jpg

    I'm in for at least part of the weekend--I have the Jenn Kingwell Gypsy Wife quilt made for me as retiring president of my guild on the the frame right now. Got one roll finished this afternoon and realized I loaded wrong so will be adding to both back and bat (grrr....so frustrating!). also have to start pricing & labeling items for our Guild booth at the Kansas City Regional Quilt Fest and have basically been stalling on that--stuff stacked everywhere in my basement rec room. And DD & her Hubs coming out sometime this weekend for dinner and board games--but I'm in!

    I finished this 10 minute block quilt yesterday. I'm layering it this morning. When I do the quilting, I'll fold in the bias diamond edges as some of the quilting, saving an extra step.

    Greetings Virtual Quilters! This month I am working on the Purple quilt, it's a very simple project of a tesselating pinwheel design. So far I've selected the fabrics (there will be 42 different purples plus a 43rd for the border, and about 15 different white on whites) and cut and done all of the the initial seams. I then put on the next step, but I ran out of pins about halfway through. Yesterday I sewed the next step on all the border pieces, that should give me enough pins to finish this stage on the block units. The good news is once these white-on-whites are pinned on and sewn, the rest of it will be a piece of cake.

    A lot of pressing ahead of me for today that's my least favorite part so I will remind myself that I'm surrounded by virtual quilters and having a good time!

    Should be able to get a picture of one of the block units in a bit. Hubby has the camera somewhere...

    Just finished putting together 48 blocks from Missouri Star's Rick Rack pattern. Have it up on my design wall deciding if I have the blocks arranged pleasantly before I start to put the rows together. I always wait for my sister to show up to make suggestions. Once its put together I need to get busy quilting some tops as I'm 11 behind not counting this one I might finish this weekend.

    Me too! Is anyone doing the Baskets, Birds, and Blooms from Piecing the Past Stitchers of Debbie Thompson McInnis from Washington State? I've got the alternate blocks done and some of the blooms. She has not given us the instructions for the baskets or the birds.

    My phone died and so my new phone is too smart for me to do pictures yet. I'll get there.

    I’ll be finishing up 2 quilts I’m making for the Colorado Pet Pantry auction on May 3rd. I promised my daughter I’d mail them out Monday or Tuesday.

    I'm in - in fact I've got the whole next week off and plan on making a big dent in my floppy pile!

    I've been waiting for this.

    It's sunny and warm today and I'm off work, so doing just a bit more hand quilting on a memory quilt. Cleaning the sewing room and getting a few donation quilt put together. Just DH and I for Easter so don't have distractions of cleaning the rest of the house.

    Hi everyone! VQW is a great way to kick off my week ahead - tomorrow I head to Shipshewana! A whole week of shopping, eating and sewing with a retreat that kicks off on Wednesday. Boy am I excited! I've packed 5 projects, some well along, others not at all...

    Will be enjoying seeing everyone's projects again, thanks for hosting! I started putting away things in my sewing room and "dusting"... where does it all come from I will hopefully get a couple more rows of machine quilting hearts on a single size scrappy. We have an Easter Brunch/1st bday most of the day tomorrow and then on Monday I am having 8 people to share our meal.... puts me in a tizzy as I am so used of only 2 or 4 of us...

    Looking forward to seeing what everyone is working on this weekend. I expect to sew a lot, hubby is away working and the weather forecast is calling for lots of rain.
    I have 10 more of these setting triangles to big stitch and then bind it - quilt is for a dear friend who is retiring from the military after 35 years of service.
