It absolutely looks like confetti! I love it!

Got my quilt top done tonight, need to finish the back in the morning so I can get it sandwiched.lrmobile0710-2016-10131169482503430544.jpeg

Got the 4 patch ready for the white corners to be sewn on



And I have all the 9 patch sewn but not pressed yet. My husband came upstairs and said it looked like I was sewing confetti! -


This is just plain wonderful to see!

Same here...and Macybaby I like the looks of your project too. It's going to be fantastic.

I am going to try to finish a warm wishes baby quilt this weekend but I may not be able to spend time on my machine until Sunday evening. Today we are working to button-up our summer home on an island off the coast of Maine. Water will be shut off in another week to the island so I like to get all my laundry and cleaning done. Then I will drag my patio furniture in, roll up garden hoses, strip the garden of my last surviving tomatoes, beets and carrots and maybe run the rotatiller through once before putting it away. I also cover all of my furniture with old sheets. It's always a sad time of year...summers fly by so quickly.

I will be FMQ 4 quilts, catching up after I had my big machine tuned up. They are all quilts I put together with my Featherweight using up squares and strips. They are not big so won't take that long. My 8 year old Grandson is here and wants to sew so I have to find something for him to do. I think I will trace a pattern of some kind of character and have him hand stitch just following the lines of the pattern. Love those Grandkids but they think they have to do a project when they're at this Grandmas. Glad I can do it.

Dedemac, I hope your job interview went well.

rryder, good luck with your quilt!

che, as altairss said, we try to do these fairly often. There is almost one every month, I generally try to schedule them on long American holiday weekends as that seems to work best for the majority of the people on the board. It's always fun to see what others are working on and find inspiration for new projects of our own. Sometimes people are shopping to add to their stash or organizing their work rooms over the weekend. If you have any other questions, please ask.

Lots of work getting done on here. I hope to upload some pictures later. I also have some room organization to do

I love that I caught this in progress this time. I will be working on my studio today, lots of sorting and purging, and with alot of luck will be quilting tomorrow. The weather here is supposed to be perfect so I really hope that I can stay focused.

The picture is kind of misleading. The blocks finish at 12". They look miniature in the photo.

I'm finally going to start my selvage lamp project and hope to finish it, barring trouble, by early afternoon. Then I want to finish a bassinet crib bumper., finish a log cabin pillowcase, for and start on a log cabin quilt. That should keep me out of prison for the weekend.

The lamp, which I painted turquoise a couple months ago, is more than ready for some lampshade love.

Foreground pile: selvages I'll start with
background pile: extra if I need them

Thanks to everyone again for sending me your castoff selvages for this makeover. Stay tuned!
