    Virtual Quilting Weekend--Nov 9-Nov 11, 2019

    Welcome to our make-up VQW! I've actually been quilting much of the day and am getting ready to head out to our guild meeting. My goal this weekend is to finish the pile of quilt tops hanging over the upstairs railing and get ready for next weekend's quilt retreat. And I even have a list to make sure I don't forget something.

    I hope you are able to join in. What are you working on this weekend?

    We will have a VQW starting Thanksgiving Day, going through Sunday. The next regular VQW will be December 20-22.

    Will check back in tomorrow to see what everyone is up to.

    I dug out a long time UFO and started working on it again last weekend and will continue this weekend. It's a crazy quilt with lots of fancy machine stitches. I've been working on this so long that I've used over 6 machines on it so far. I'm trying hard to get all the blocks done so I can free up my stack of neutrals for the BH mystery.

    I'm currently on my third set of 25 blocks, then will have one more set and I'll have all 100 of them done!
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    Well today I've been dealing with problems and it will be nice to deal with quilting instead. One of the (many) problems is my fancy sewing computer needs to go to the shop, so I plugged in my cheap Brother and am ready to sew!

    I have a project I'm working on that doesn't have a name yet, last week I was calling it "cherry goose". It's a lap/crib size that will be for donation and I will make it today's goal to have a picture of it tomorrow.

    I'll also be doing some fabric dying. I was lucky enough to find a lovely bag of hand dyed fabrics at the thrift store in the last couple of weeks and the colors are actually quite good for the Bonnie Hunter Frolic mystery, except not enough pale/neutral. I decided to change it to yellow and I'll have to dye process a couple of yards of those this weekend. I have pure white in my stash and I went to Joann for Rit Dye and the Dollar Store for some other supplies and I am ready to dip and boil. Yesterday I did some bleach and tea dye processes on the solid green I'm using.

    If that isn't enough, I have the hand sewing part of the binding for another donation top. I am soooo slow at handwork and one weekend isn't enough for me to get it done -- especially when there are more fun things to do.

    Guild most of today and tomorrow morning the DH and I are checking out local exercise center (I teach water wellness about 9-10 hrs weekly but the pool closed for repairs and not sure when/if I'll be back in)!! Hope to finish piecing a DD's Christmas quilt; quilt a friend's table runner and hopefully make some inroads on her TV quilt (pp'ed retro tv's which we agree will have screens quilted with retro shows--Bonanza, I Love Lucy, etc). Lots still do to for my family for Christmas so will have to be productive!

    I have a UFO to bind. Then I need to work on DGD’s 21st birthday quilt- it’s been on the UFO pile for several years as I started it at the same time as The one I did for her older sister’s 21st birthday. Somehow I thought that by starting it 3 years early I would not be having to rush at the last minute to get it done yet here we are, 3 weeks to her 21st and it’s still only partly pieced

    I'll be joining in as much as I can. This morning I have to do the grocery shopping, which will probably take all morning. Tomorrow we have a friend's wedding to attend and Sunday we are hoping to install a few new windows. But I can sew this afternoon and on Monday! I finished quilting the main part of a quilt yesterday, and my goal is to finish quilting th borders and hopefully start the binding. I love the feeling of getting so close to finishing a quilt!

    Look forward to seeing everyone's projects!

    I'm in!
    I'm working on a Christmas quilt titled Candy Wrappers- it's such a cute pattern. Hope to get it all pieced by the end of the weekend.
    It's the first thing I've made that isn't for my new granddaughter born in September!

    A quilting marathon is more likely what I will need to be doing. Especially if I need to totally re make a new quilt. I will have a better idea later today if I need to make another baby quilt and if I do then it will be more that virtual but virtual marathon quilt weekend. Looking forward to getting the quilting juices running.

    Thanks for hosting again Raggiemom! Iím in! I want to finish the last blocks on a Queen size quilt and get it off my design wall and on my longarm. Like most of my projects I get about halfway done, then other things require my attention, and it lingers while I find my mojo to get going again.

    Yes I’ll be working on my churn dash blocks for a charity quilt. They said neutral colors work best for the auction and it’s been a bit hard for me as I love bright colorful quilts.

    I’m in, I want to quilt and finish a few tops. Then wash and iron my black fabric for BHMQ 2019, so I’m ready for Her 1st clue.

    So this is the "next" project or the project with no name, posted it in the most appropriate thread if you want a visual, don't like cross posting photos so close together.
    https://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f...ml#post8324423

    I'm making 24 total of the goose blocks, I'm doing the rectangle and two squares method of making the geese, they are all pinned and ready to go and next step. I need to get used to the seam allowance on the Brother, I'm not quite hitting where I want to yet, but I'll be practiced up by the end of the project.

    Quite often my quilts have songs to go with them, I went to my hubby's bowling league where they are getting used to me sitting up top working on one of my projects and Bohemian Rhapsody was playing as I was pinning the geese. There's the part where the line is actually Scaramouche Scaramouche can you do the fandango? And suddenly I was head banging along to it as Cherry Goose! Cherry Goose! LOL, don't know if that name is going to stick or not.

    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.
