Watson- your matchstick quilting looks awesome!

Loving the proteas- Sewing!

PBraun- ruler quilting is lots of fun. Yours is looking good!

I finished the 16 patches yesterday and got three rows stittched together and to each other. Will finish stitching rows together todayx Yay! Then I need to decide on borders, but I may take a break from it and work on Magic Mushrooms...

Shoot! I almost missed it! I was thinking that it would be next weekend. OK, I can still participate today and tomorrow. I'm still doing the same thing quilting the wood grain pattern on a big quilt. I'm about 2/3 done. I'll get on that today. I also have a quilt that is done, but needs binding. I hope to finish that this weekend too. Lastly, I'm starting on some slipcovers for a loveseat. The fabric came the other day. Perhaps I can get some of the pieces cut out and ready for assembly.

Happy sewing everyone!

I hate to post all of my positive comments on one post, it seems rude to me, but it is warm and sunny out and the dogs are looking at me with their big, brown eyes, hoping I'll take them out for a romp, so here goes. The dogs win out on this one. One, long, post. I sincerely mean every word. The work that is displayed on the VQWs is just so amazing and inspiring:

Jmore…love the colorful quilt, crazy colors, but orderly layout…nice!

Luvstoquilt…Your, “Wild Goose Chase,” quilt looks very intricate…gorgeous!

Panchita…the red truck skirt is so sweet! I need to make a tree skirt…later in the year.

Cam’s Gram…The sloth is wonderful! Is that an Elizabeth Hartman pattern? I love all of her animal motifs.

Sewingitalltogether…That’s beautiful and unique. I really love anything with nature/plants incorporated into a quilt.

Railroadersbrat…is the, “needleminder,” the kitty thing in the picture?

Cheesehead…Your valentine projects are so pretty. A packers fan…obviously. 😊

Watson…The matchstick filler looks amazing to me…not funky at all. I love the dusky colors you’ve chosen.

Pbraun…love your quilt. It would look just lovely on my bed. 😊 As for the Christmas quilting…ruler work, working with flannel, extra batting…lots of skill involved. Looks great!

QuiltingVagabond…wow…it’s beautiful!

Sewbizgirl…I like the red and white print.

RRBrat, your cross stitch made me cry. It's unfathomable how much our pets love us and we never seem to give them all the attention they deserve!

Finished my sampler quilt. Top was completed in my introduction to quilting class in late 2019. I quilted it on my new long arm with my first pantograph and a bit of FMQ in the central block. Finished machine binding it this weekend. Also finished my small appliqué quilt needed for my Road To CA class next weekend!

Both of those are pretty, leheath8, but I love the little tree frog! Nice work with your longarm.

Busy weekend for me. Got all 14 of my flowers together. They are ironed on and ready to be sewn down. Also added 2 birds, not on the pattern, I just like them.
Love the pictures of everyone’s projects.

Lots of inspiring work posted, thanks everyone! I finished the scrappy top last night, the one block is Bonnie Hunter's leader/ender but I alternated it with a snowball to calm it down a little Lunch break is over so will get back to piecing a backing for it now.

lindaschipper and railroadersbrat--hope you're both feeling better.

Well, as expected today, I didn't do any quilting but did finish sorting/organizing the FQ cabinet. I have fabric pulled for 10 charity quilts to make in the next couple months. Tomorrow I hope to have a little time in the sewing room. I knew I wouldn't be in the sewing room much this weekend; have too much house stuff planned. But I would like to start stitching down an applique block. We'll see how that goes
