Default Virtual Quilting Weekend--June 18 to June 20, 2021

Welcome to the June VQW! I have a couple small projects to hopefully quilt and bind this weekend. Would also like to get a mystery block of the month assembled. All the pieces are made, just needs to be pieced. If somehow that all gets done, I really should start on my June UFO .

Next month's VQW will be July 2-July 5. I'll start the thread and check in over the weekend but probably won't participate much. My mom will be here that weekend. It has been two years since she visited .I've seen her but she hasn't been here.

So what are you working on this weekend?

Oh good! I need to get 7 more RS tall buildings done for the BOM at thequiltshow.com and it is time consuming so maybe this will be the push I need! I also just printed out a bib pattern as DD has decided to start little GD on pablum..... so funny to watch the precious videos. The little modern style bibs that look like a hankie tied around the neck are just not doing the job!

Huzzah! I love VQW. I am currently breaking my head on my first ever Lone Star. I've opted for a selection of greys and will have a deep green as background. I just finished with the strip sets but now I'm wondering if I sewed some upsidedown....

oh my, I am so hoping to get the quilt I have loaded on the long arm quilting and binding on. It has been loaded for a week and every time I think I am going to start, someone comes over or the dog wants to go on his walk. It has been very nice outside and that is part of the problem too. I do not like spending time inside when our summers are so short.

Thanks for hosting again Heather! I am definitely in! I am working on a quilt for a Christmas gift for my wonderful neighbors. I have half of the blocks done and hope to get at least the stars together this weekend.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else is working on!

Full week-end with non- quilting activities. Hope to get the binding on one quilt. Looking forward to everyone else's progress the weekend and I will see y'all in July with a pile of projects to work on and perhaps finish the extra long "weekend".

Oh, nice..just the push I needed! I have been stalled in my quilting and my dh is gone for the weekend, so the timing is perfect for me! Thanks!

Always so nice to have you hosts these. Yesterday I spray basted together a comfort quilt project we are behind on, I am not usually the one that does the quilting and had already passed the top on (my job was putting together). Is basically a small queen sized so my largest layout space is my queen bed. It was a struggle, the backing was also "enough" but close enough you had to be very careful with it.

I won't be doing anything fancy at all, just basic serpentine stitching along the block grids but goal is to have it done this weekend and to the person who puts the binding on Monday.

Arms and shoulders and legs are in good shape to face the day, but I am feeling this in my lower back already! I have an improvement to my quilting life planned -- but first I have to clean out the laundry/storage room of some 30 years of things that have landed in there. We are going to get a freezer since basically all our foods are bought raw and we just can't keep a couple weeks of groceries on hand. And, I'm going to get one of those folding ping pong tables on wheels. They are a great height and shape and storable, I'll just have to wheel it out into the back yard to open it/layout tops. It will be better than my current option(s). Back in the day I could use the conference table at work, or the lunchroom at the hubby's work. But in good news, the library will be opening up conference rooms again in July -- more options for quilters!

Would love to play this weekend, but I'm converting the sewing room back to guest bedroom.

But we get to have Niece for the night She gets to stay until late Saturday and DH has to work 1/2 day on Saturday. so lots of Auntie time!

And Sunday is booked for church and wine club to pick up the newly bottled wines and of course we get a free glass so will sit and sip with friends for a while. If there is time in-between I do have a quilt that needs the binding stitched down. But will check in and watch all the fun and drool over the pictures.
Thanks Heather, have fun everyone!

I’m in! Today is the first day in 2 weeks that I didn’t have some place I had to be or something other than quilting that had to get done. I’ve got my completed May quilt from the Debby Brown QAL to photograph and I need to make some progress on piecing the June quilt top. I got all the 16 patch blocks done, but then stalled on snowballing the corners because I am out of WOW and couldn’t decide on what else from my stash I could substitute. I also want to make some progress on the Mandala wall hanging that I sandwiched and marked earlier this week and do another unit in the Iquilt class I signed up for last week when they offered me a free class. So lots to work on.

I’m looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing, thanks for hosting, Heather!
