    Virtual Quilting Weekend - May 25-29, 2017

    Welcome to this month's Virtual Quilting Weekend. I hope many of you will be able to quilt with me at some point over the weekend. My goal is to catch up on the various block of the months I'm been doing! I'm a little behind .

    What will YOU be working on this weekend?

    Next VQW will be June 30-July 2.

    I'll be working on getting these two quilted and adding May temps to my temperature quilt (if there's time).

    Both these are made from UFO blocks that I pieced and then never got around to putting together. The first pic is a photo I took before I stitched the flimsy together. Got so excited about the 2nd flimsy that I forgot to take a pic of the first after it was put together LOL.

    My goal is to get my daughters top on the long arm, completely bound and washed and ready to go for her since she will be down next weekend. I just got my long arm raised up to a better height (I hope it's better anyway) and I really want to finish the tops I have waiting to be quilted, and maybe I can squeeze in one more if I can find my groove.

    I have been working on the HST's for My Carolina Home's Scrap Dance Waltz. I have just over 600 made and need another 200--for a queen sized. Hoping to get them finished and actually start on the blocks. Super excited because this is all coming from my scrap bin and my stash (for the background--just did not have enough light scraps so had to dip into my yardage).

    I have also been taking apart some 'new to me' blocks. I guess you could say they are third hand because they were given to my sister and she passed them along to me. I have very definite ideas about what they will become but a lot of frogging first. Oh well, good to do in front of the idiot box.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    I have a jigsaw puzzle quilt ready to layer and quilt. I hope to get that done. But thing never work out as planned around here. I'll just get as much done as I can fit in.

    The colors are beautiful, and it took several days to cut out the foundations and the fabric. Can't wait to start!
    In the meantime, I have been piecing together some blocks I won in last month's block swap at my local guild meeting.

    Here I am. I will be getting back to a UFO that has been waiting for me two separate times. I have been working on one machine appliqued block most of today. I am hoping to have a picture by tomorrow.

    Oh, I forgot to tell you, I am also making a little froggie wall hanging for my sister.

    I have 2 weeks of HSTs to catch up on my temp quilt. Then I'll pull fabric from my stash to make a PP shark for my DGD. She's graduating high school next week and wants to decorate her dorm room around sharks, so I'm making a laundry bag for her and appliqueing the shark to that. Lots and lots of pieces, should be interesting 'cause I'm not a very experienced PPer.

    I'm hoping to get the remaining 3 section of my king sized quilt quilted so that I can begin to assemble the quilt and get it done soon!

    I'm in! I'd been pushing myself, the DSM & long arm hard all of March, April and until this past week--but made my deadlines. So yesterday I wanted to just mindlessly sew---my guild has a UFO Challenge in Sept, so decided to take the 3 huge bags of strings and sort and make a string quilt. I literally could not reach my Accuquilt GO with the string bags stacked in front! I have the string made into blocks, now to cut the black blocks and then will put them together as big HST. Also tomorrow I plan to do a thorough cleaning and oiling of the long arm and get a customer quilt loaded. We are expecting rain on Sat. so have some yard work for tomorrow too.

    Hope to finish piecing my Granny Square quilt and get it ready for hand quilting (big stitch). Also want to finish the tutorial I have started on the Tutorials page.

    Thanks for hosting again, Raggiemom!

    I will finish my Block of the Week from Amy Gibson's book The Quilt Block Cookbook.

    I hope to work on other projects also but my lawn needs to be mowed, mulch spread, etc, so my sewing time may be limited.

    rryder, LOVE both of your tops. They look more like modern paintings than quilts! That second one is awesome. You have a wonderful 'eye'.

    I will sew with you all this weekend! Need to finish up the three little dresses for South America that I started today, and then work on something quilty. I'm still making the 9 patches for the Patches of Life quilt... and hand quilting my embroidery quilt. I really hope I can get that finished in time to enter it in a local show. It will be my first time!

    Looking forward to seeing lots of PICTURES!

    I'll be putting a border on this, then sandwiching and quilting. Then hopefully getting back to one very large, very overdue UFO.

    My oh my, I've been waiting all week for this thread. Glad to be able to be a part of this for the weekend. Thank you again 'Raggiemom,' for hosting the thread and all the activity that it will create. I plan on DSM quilting two of my charity quilts with the walking foot on my 401A. and cutting the pieces to start a future UFO from a Craftsy pattern that I ordered a couple months ago. I plan for very few interruptions in my process, I rose very early this morning to get a fresh start. I will do pix at the end of the session, cause I always get assistance from GDG with that process.

    Rob, once again you have some amazing work going on there, I think both of your pieces are amazing, but I am truly in love with your second project. I can't stop lurking at it, but I must if I want to get anything done for myself.

    Happy sewing everyone

    I'm in this weekend! Thought we were going away but turns out DH wants a quiet weekend at home. I'm off work until Tuesday so have lots of time to relax! I will be working on the last 4 memory quilts that I have to hand stitch the binding down and place the patches! Then I think a little cleaning in the sewing room and work on some crumb squares (hate to throw away fabric). The garden is mostly in and just some weeding in the strawberry patch to do. So I will clean the patio furniture off and stitch outside! Forgot I also have to mow the flat part of the yard since it finally stopped raining here, DH will mow the hill. Looks like we should have a great weekend in MN, hope everyone has a safe and relaxing weekend.

    DH and I are going shopping today - I took the day off work so I could have one day to chase, and still have a nice 3 day weekend to relax. After reading other posts, I recall I've got a UFO I should pull out and work on. It's not real old, but I put it aside after the last VQW and figured I'd ignore it until the next one showed up. It's a paper pieced project and I don't have a lot left of the piecing to do, then I can start sewing the sections together.

    I'm hoping to spend a lot of time quilting. The top projects are making blocks from the 1,000 block book and Month 3 of a quilt along.
