Looks like many of you accomplished quite a bit this weekend. I had a great time quilting with friends at the shop today. Even managed to get three table topper tops done. And lots of shopping and visiting!

see you all back here next month!

On 7/1/21, Maine did away with plastic grocery bags. I found a great tutorial for one on YouTube. After a fail, I got one done. I have started a second one.😁. Looks like a lot of stitches were made this weekend, thanks for the updates today. Thank you Heather for hosting, looking forward to next month.

Default Monday Update

So after posting about my Roundabout problem, I'm going to spend the rest of my Monday sitting in front of my laptop, ripping seams and starting over, I think that's going to be the best bet. I'm also going to figure out how to spin the seams, I noticed that my sewing machine can't handle all that bulk in the middle and it's wreaking havoc trying to get my points lined out and straight.

Lovely Juliasb, keep on plugging Railroadersbrat and grats to all of us, whether we achieved our goals or not.

I like easy goals and got my star blocks done but I am still cutting fan blades... it is going so much better with the new blade but I seem to have about a 5 minute attention span. Still about 100 more blades to go, but no more fussy cuts. Got all the Michigan fabrics done and have been working on yellows (me and yellow and this quilt!) but think I'm going to see if I can put my hands on a specific piece of fabric and do some light blues for a couple stacks of 10. Should be a piece in either the 6.5" strip box or the more in the light blue box.

Juliasb- that’s beautiful! I love the colors and the way the swirly quilting contrasts with the spiky pineapple blocks.

thanks for hosting, raggiemom!

juliasb - I keep picturing appliqued red circles in groups of three every so often. ....it reminds me of holly leaves!

I'm still ripping, just have a few more blocks to do and then I can start over! This bites that it happened, but I've learned from the experience and I'm even going to put some notes in my bullet journal for the next quilt I do with this pattern, which I committed myself to do soon.

I also meant to say that the other day when you talked about changing your rotary blades, I couldn't remember when I changed mine, so I changed it, lol.
