    Sweet banner, Thimblebug.

    WMUTeach- beautiful finish. I love the fact that you start by choosing the backing and then pick fabrics for the front.

    off to put dinner in the oven, and look forward to everyone’s progress tomorrow!

    WMUTeach - those are absolutely stunning! I have always loved white and blue in quilts, something about that combination just speaks to my soul.

    I had a rough start and ended up laying down for a nap. I have an appointment to see my doctor next week about my hands, just within the last week it seems like I've lost a lot of strength and my joints have been extremely sore, tender and warm to the touch. They've also been swollen and it seems like I can't get it to go down at all. I was able to get my sewing corner straightened out some and made a bowl cozy (prototype, it's a new pattern I wasn't familiar with) and was working on the baskets but I couldn't hold my rotary cutter without shaking and barely had enough oomph to cut the fabric. I set those off to the side and concentrated on my cross stitching.

    After I have some coffee and get something to eat, I'm going to slowly start re-organizing my sewing corner, right now it seems like that's the only thing I can do without too many issues, then I'll finish up with the baskets. I think I'm going to start with two, one for my floor frame and one that'll clip to the side of my desk.

    WMUteach- Outstanding quilt, one of my favorite color combos and your backing is divine!
    Thimblebug- What an adorable banner!

    I hope those who arenít feeling well find relief soon!

    Met my goal of finishing the last 12 stars yesterday, this morning I will do the fabric prep for the final blocks and hopefully this week I can work on those. I know I am in for the Thanksgiving weekend VQW. Iíll post pictures in a bit once I get going.

    Update on Holly Mart: Pleased to report we had $2,273 in sales, with another $390 still pending for quilts sold but not yet paid for. 10% goes to church music ministry, and rest will reimburse on supplies and I'm hoping for agreement on another donation to give disaster relief to FLA, But this afternoon, I shall happily be working on binding safe and secure in my Mom Cave!

    Here is what Iím making for my neighborís husband after she refused to share the quilt I made for them last Christmas. Iím not thrilled with the lack of contrast, but I wanted to use what I had in my stash to appease her demands for a quilt for her hubby. I am working on the border blocks today, I will be happy when this is done!

    Having a very serious argument with myself.

Or should I made another 11 to get a 6x6 - 72" center - makes final size as 94"

    Welcome all thoughts. Motivation is low. Currently have 84 x 100 on bed but we got as a wedding present and it's just plum worn out.

    Cjsews fabulous quilt! Love the blue and yellow.
    Tallchick even though it wasn't quilting Friday, it was time well spent. Great mystery quilt from scraps and I think the quilt for you neighbor is great.
    Gail, that's a massive undertaking.

    I have two pieces of the last border to make and sew the outer border on and I'm done then I can quilt it. Had a busy weekend, went out to breakfast with friends, went to DGS#1, DGD, and DGGSs and went to Sam's to pickup an order. Now I know I will have this quilt ready in plenty of time. Next on the list is a king size quilt for DDIL#2 (cheater quilt) and the one I'm really looking forward to, a quilt for our new DGGD due February 2!

    I didn’t get as much done as hoped for. But, I did get this top finished. I did not have a pattern for it. I saw this posted somewhere and saved a picture. The stars are 9” Ohio stars and the courthouse steps were strips cut at 1.5 inches. What looks yellow is actually a strange green

    a whole lot of work done here. Love your quilt Camsgram

    thanks for hosting Heather. Hope you are feeling much better today
