I'm working on the Pam Buda Circa 1880 Club quilt. It is a block-of-the-month type subscription for one year, that is the only way you can get the pattern and the templates. I started making the teeny tiny blocks in May and have most of the 500+ 2 1/2 inch blocks finished. Now I'm working on assembling them into units and then to strips and eventually into a quilt. There is a lot of potential for fussy-cutting so I have a few mixed in with the standard blocks. I want to make a couple of tiny embroidered blocks to mix in with the pieced ones. Plenty of steps to keep me busy this weekend! (The first picture is sideways - sorry!)

I'm working on sewing together 200-odd blocks of batiks for a queen quilt, which I have laid out on the ping-pong table. You can just see the extra rows laid out on the floor that wouldn't fit on the table.

I have collected batiks for so long, I figured it was time to do something with them!

I wanted an easy, straightforward quilt to do. This should keep me busy for awhile.

Count me in. I'm back to the cat quilt I started on the last VQW. I had to wait for fabric to come in, so I finished up a turtle quilt in the mean time.

Thank you! I know at least one other person on the forum is working on their version and she is way closer to being done. I have never worked with such small blocks before, and this project has really forced me to be super-careful about accurate seams and cutting. I will be a much better quilter by the time this is finished.

Wow, there is some serious quilting going on today! I continued working on quilting and binding. I should have the pile done by the end of the weekend if I keep on track. Let's hope I stay focused!

Battleaxe, hope you feel better

Count me in... I will be working on pillows. Will post pics later this weekend once I get some done. Got more invisible thread headed my way in the mail for closing up the pillows once stuffed.

Got the baby quilt bound, therefore finished, and it is in the wash as I type. Tomorrow is supposed to be a beautiful day, so I will try to photograph it to post. Not complicated, but very sweet.
