    What I got done this wknd,what about you?

    Got some time in the sewing room this weekend. I sandwiched a little baby quilt (stacked coins) and it is ready for FM later this week. Then I cut and sewn this rag cuddle lap quilt (think I might keep it for ME), now to get all the clipping done, that is good tv time. I did that on my old 301A. I made 2 receiving blankets to go to Germany for a gift along with some other goodies.. Got my old serger out to do this, since it is almost an antique. It still works because my newer serger (by a year) is giving me fits. Called in my personal sewing machine repair man, luckily for me he is a dear man and has put up with me all these years and he was able to diagnose it. Cut some thimble pieces for my thimble quilt, which I am just starting, this good be a very long process to make this quilt. Oh and I made a pillowcase to insert the turning twenty quilt I am giving for a wedding present. I always like to hear what others got done over the weekend and I hope you like hearing from me!

    Love those rag quilts! Sorry to say, I did not get very much done this weekend. Cut out curtains for my sewing room, got them lined, but still have to make the valance.

    What a pretty rag quilt. I got to work on my latest quilt, a batik braid. I really like it. I sure hope I don't ruin it with my rookie fmq.
    Happy Quilting.

    I have made several rag quilts, I find after I sew two rows together to go ahead and clip what I have already sewn, makes clipping easier for me, rather than moving around the completed quilt.

    That sounds like a great tip!I got more material to make my next rag quilt,bigger than this one. Clipping would be easier I think as you suggested. Thanks!

    Finished up two baby quilts for a customer. Sewed 60 batik blocks for a quilt and put them into rows. Now need to sew the rows together. Has been cooler, windy and rainy here in coastal Texas so a good time to sew.

    You were so productive! I got the binding put on a quilt and started hand sewing it down and I knitted a little neck warmer.

    I only had a little time to sew this week-end but I did finish a heart wall hanging and worked on another quilt top. I pressed all the seams, cut all the loose threads etc. It is now ready to sew together, hopefull today.

    I finished quilting my first lap quilt this weekend. I cut my binding strips this morning before work (I was late). Just have to trim and square the quilt and apply the binding and label and I'll be done. I will definitely post pictures here when it's finished.

    What a beautiful rag quilt - love the fabric - I am still trying to bury my sewing room from my last reorganization.

    I've been working on 18" doll clothes for my granddaughters. I stopped by a yardsale and found white eyelet kitchen curtains that will work perfectly for some cute skirts for the dolls. Spent about 1/2 afternoon on Saturday cleaning out the hall craft closet as well. Also got 6 more pineapples appliqued for a quilt me and a lady from church are making for another lady who lost her husband. The pineapples are made out of her husband's shirts from Hawaii.

    I worked on an old ufo, one with a wart, hope to get it done soon, and held an open house on Sunday trying to sell my house.

    I finished a full size bargello , and shipped it off to the Long Arm pro this AM. It felt good to have it DONE! and I had enough time to get the sewing room cleaned up a bit before bed.

    I finished a block of the month top -Patriots in Petticoats - I hope to get it sandwiched next week. I also am working on a log cabin, braid quilt and a couple of others. Getting caught up is a challenge but no new quilts until the tops are done!!

    I only got some of a binding done on a table runner this weekend. I hope to hem some fun pants tomorrow night and finish the binding Thursday.
    Have a good day!

    You have been busy! I love your rag quilt. I didn't get as much done as you did. I got all the strips sewn together for a jellyroll 1600 quilt and got the first 4 seams together before I had to quit because it was getting late. I didn't get to start it till aroind 9:00 pm. Weekends are a zoo around here. Didn't get back into the sewing studio yesterday---laundry, cooking and household chores got in the way. Have an appointment this morning, but hope to get back to my jellyroll quilt this afternoon. Don't you just hate it when life gets in the way of your quilting?
