Default Virtual Quilting Weekend--Nov 26-29, 2020

Welcome to our special Virtual Quilting Weekend and Happy Thanksgiving to the Americans I have but one project on my list for the weekend. It's my November UFO challenge--a Quiltsmart dahlia top. I hope to have the top done by the end of the weekend. Then I can spend next week catching up on the double wedding ring quilt along and the paper piecing quilt along I am doing with one of the local shops. And of course start the December UFO which is to finish a feathered star I started a few years ago.

What will you be working on? I will pop in and out as I have the Thanksgiving meal to prepare for my husband (Thanksgiving is the best holiday according to him!) and will be decorating for Christmas also.

The next regularly scheduled VQW is December 18-20 and then a special New Year's Eve/New Year's Day VQW.

Good evening Heather and fellow quilters.
I’m working on quilting & binding a 85” square quilt. I’m in the process of putting it on the long arm. Friday start working on clue 1 of BHMQ 2020 (that’s what I call it). In between time start on the Pat Sloan’s Christmas in July snowflake mystery steps, Then Try to catch up on 2 BOW projects I started earlier this month. I’ll post pics when I complete a project.

I have got to finish my DGD 's quilt and get going on one for my DGS, so I'm in. In between T-giving tasks and other projects. Not enough hours....

normally I'd have a house full of kids/grandkids. But this year it's just the 2 of us, so I'm in! Hubs will be writing and watching sports on tv. So I need to quilt 2 table runners, put some borders on a panel and then quilt 2 of them for more table toppers--bind all 4 and start the fusible on another quilt.

I'll be working on my Project Linus quilts. One top done today, pieced not quilted, and my goal is 5 more. Just DH and me and he cooks so I sew.

I am in. I am with my mother and my sister tonight since mom just got out of the hospital. I will be heading home tomorrow around noon and cooking dinner for husband and myself. Then I am going to be hand quilting a Christmas quilt for our bed. I started it a couple of weeks ago. I know I won't be able to finish it but it will be nice to get some more if it done.

Excellent! I'm actually happy I don't have to attend the usually very large family dinner this year, I'm just not terribly at ease in large gatherings. Happy to stitch and chat. I just finished a cover for my vsm, so now it's back to quilting! I dug out the squares I made from a few jelly rolls I had on hand, some batik, some shot cottons. It was the "tube" method of creating diagonal stripes, which I found fun. Now, it's all about playing with color and movement!

I'm going to try and do it and not feel guilty. I hope to finish a lap quilt I'm making for my oldest stepdaughter and quick patchwork Christmas runners for all four of my stepdaughters and my SDIL. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Oh good! Thank you for hosting Raggiemom

I have a mish-mash of things. I need to take a decent photo of my November penguin and post it to the appropriate thread here, continue with handquilting my pumpkins wallhanging, and progress my Moda project bags (I'm doing a lot of 'firsts' with those bags - first time quilting with a domestic machine, first time using vinyl, first time inserting a zip - now I think of it, first time making a bag! Am still at the quilting stage rather than any further, but I'm quite pleased with the results). There's also my Stars Sampler, on which I seem to have stalled - top is assembled, but it needs de-papering.

Plus I want to do some Christmas ornaments in felt (animals) - not sure I'll get to that. Or maybe I should prioritise it, given the date? Hmm....

Plus there is all the prep for 2 December birthdays and Christmas. Double hmm...

Well, I won't be bored!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it!

I finished a quilt top yesterday....so I guess I am in! I'm going to hold my own feet to the fire and finish borders on something else and then I will have 2 to do basting and quilting. The one I just finished is an Oh Susannah quilt block in earth tones. The other remaining is strips of this awesome licence plate fabric. I'm going to fmq the 50 states and give to a friend who spends summer in the road in their travel camper (well, not 2020 but y'all get the picture).

Looking forward to seeing everyone's work!
