    Virtual Quilting Weekend--June 29-July 4, 2018 Whoops!!!!

    I forgot this was supposed to be a virtual quilting weekend, I am so sorry! So I am a little late starting it I have extended it through July 4 as Canada and the US have holidays in that time span.

    I have various projects to work on, just a matter of deciding which one to start with! I'll check back in later and see what everyone is working on.

    Next VQW is August 3-5. I'll mark it on my calendar so I don't forget again

    I caught the flu and had to take a short break from sewing. But I managed to sew some yesterday. I finished the 16 dogs in sweaters blocks. Fifteen for the quilt one for the pillow. I am starting the pillow quilting first to kind of get a feel for the quilting on the quilt. They came out cute in the summery prints. I put eye glasses on the pillow and sunglasses on one dog of the quilt. But, I am wondering if I should make one with the eyeglasses on the quilt too. Any thoughts?


    I bought a really cute pattern for an all over flying birds pattern I am antsy to begin. So, I had better stay focused or I will get side tracked. LOL! You know us artsy people.


    I also have a purse I want to make from the book Windy City Bags that has caught my imagination. (Oh Dear!) I had better put on the blinders and get to planning that quilting for the doggies. It is all I can do not to play with pulling bird fabric today.

    I think I would put eyeglasses on one of the dogs in the quilt too just for fun

    I haven't seen in a month but just the other day I got out the machine and made 2baby quilts for some friends. I want to start one for my son and his wife but until they know the sex I will put that off. Tomorrow I think I am going to get back to my niece's wedding quilt.

    Thanks for setting this up

    Yay! I’ve got several things to work on:
    1.a collaborative slashed fabric quilt that needs me to add something around one of the motifs and pass back to my collaborator
    2. A collaborative quilt that needs to be bound. I really want to try a facing with rattail edging- I saw something like it at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Fest this year on one of the big prize winners- will have to do some research and experimenting first.
    3. Another collaborative quilt that needs more quilting
    4. An art piece that needs more quilting
    5. A UFO so I can get a July finish

    the question is, what should I work on? LOL

    thanks for setting this vqw up!

    I need to spend some time in my sewing room to re-organize it. We had a severe plumbing issue and had to replace the pipes under the house and out to the main line. After it was done we had the house cleaned by a professional service, but since I trust no one with my machines, everything not glued down went into my room. It is cleared out now - but I need to get it ready for me to use my 15-91 to finish a quilt I started on my featherweight. My 15-91 is in a cabinet and since I will be sewing long rows together I find it much easier with the cabinet. Plus it has been a while since I used it so really looking forward to getting it opened up. So many projects but I am going to look at just one at a time right now. (Even though I just bought a dozen white hand towels at Costco to make sets for upcoming holidays. Oh, and I bought some cloth napkins to embroider too, and.... okay - time to refocus on one thing at a time!)

    Just elated of this VQW, I haven't been on site in a while and I'm a little excited about posting picture and making statements concerning unfinished projects and works in progress and whatever else around my place that needs my attention. What a good weekend to set and sew with the temps into the high nineties. Oh boy, was I ever wanting to add pix. Hopefully, that too shall happen. I have a pix of the first project but, can't get to load out.
    I'd like to work on a child's transparency
    I'd like to work on a child's gift of a quilted project
    I'd like to work on a charity top that's been around for a while
    Loving the idea of extra time to be in the post, that time extension is music to the ear.

    I'm working on a mandella quilt. It's got a center, then 24 rays going out from that. I'm working on the first ray to make sure I've got the pattern drawn up correctly. It's a lot of paper piecing.

    I'm in. Last night I was hanging out with a couple of great nieces and, since they are old enough, they decided they wanted to make their own supper of ramen noodles. It was in the upper 90's so they were inside watching TV so I worked on sorting through a fabric donation. There were quite a few blocks so I sorted them by size and wrote on a piece of paper the size and if they needed trimming and put them in bags. One set of string blocks had 23 in it. Sweet! The funny part is I had already worked with some of these fabrics in a previous donation so I guess these blocks got separated somehow or donated later.

    Today I worked on my Rest and Refreshing quilt top. I have the main part of the top finished but now I am working on the borders which has 9 patches on the diagonal. Too many setting triangles for this brain of mine to figure out how to put them on. I finally put them up on the design wall so I can do them right. LOL!

    I have 2 BOW's to finish this weekend also-Accuquilt Qube and Blockheads 2.

    I in, I am working on a Scrappy Hunter Star that I am re-working from a swap here on the QB. It will be the second one. The second project I have on the list is to finish embroidering my Mermaid Block. And, add one more border to that quilt to finish it and bring it to size. Then, if there is more time, project 3 will be to start sashing my Red/White/Blue swap blocks. I think that's enough of a commitment for now. I look forward to hearing or seeing what you all will be working on.

    I’m in, for the times I can sew. Summer camp is Monday & Tuesday, off for the Fourth, then back to camp for the last 2 days of the week. I leave next Sat for our motorcycle convention in Montgomery, Alabama.
    Today I sewed some strips to 4.5” blocks. I have an idea in mind, & the blocks look good so far. I also need to bind my Boxes of Strings. I finished quilting it a week or two ago but teaching summer camp interferes with my sewing. I was also HOT when I got home each day-I taught rocket camp last week & we launched a rocket in central Texas heat EVERY day!

    I'm in. I finished my horse quilt I worked on last month so it's back to my son's wedding quilt. I've decided on a curling ribbon for the first border. Too hot to be outside weeding.
