    I want the tops I have made all summer to be headed toward the "quilted" stage. It is to hot here to deal with any sort of thickness, so I spend the warmer times making "tops" and smaller projects and the winter time quilting and binding them.

    I'd be happy to finish the one I'm working on. If I could find my camera I'd post a pic. It's basically a 4 patch in brown, turquoise, and green with an appliqued brown square in the middle, sashing and borders...all by hand. DD's choice. :D

    Nope...and that's the really frustrating part...I live in another city 15 miles from my Mom...my brother lives with her...he 'occasionally' has a license but doesn't have a car, my younger sister lives less than a mile from Mom but it seems she is always working, next door to her is my older sister who doesn't drive at all(thank goodness)...I have to get groceries for 3 households, plus the dr. appts for everyone...seems like I start to clean the room and someone has another "emergency"...I am 61, and this isn't the "Life" I ordered...lol...Naomi

    Too many ideas...so little time. I print out any that interest me plus keep any magazine with a good idea. I think I will tape them all to the wall, put on a blindfold and throw a dart.

    I just designed a Christmas one that I need to write out the directions on and get made, plus a few Christmas wall hangings, pot holders and need to finish Bill's queen/king bear quilt. It's ready for the LA but been working on other stuff instead!

    I used to be that way, too, but finally realized that I was being used. We all have to learn to say no, and not be hurt by it. Sure feels good to be living my own life now!

    Over the past several years, anytime I bought fabric for a quilt.........and the backing and binding.........I rolled it up on a fabric board. I now have 43 of them standing on my shelf, plus several kits in packages. It would be nice to finish one a month, but unless I quit shopping, I'll never catch up. :)

    My brother and his wife recently separated, he has the kids thru the week(Faith-10, Troy-14), I want to make quilts for the three of them for Christmas. I'm hoping to do something a little more than just squares sewn together. Hoping to take a week off of work and have a marathon week of quilting and get as much done as possible. Ready to start now!

    I want to make a couple of "I Spy" quilts. I never made a quilt with themed fabrics before but I've been collecting backyard animals and assorted candy and chocolate squares. They were planned as children's quilts but I believe the sweeties will have to be MINE. I found a hot chocolate print today at the Sew Chic anniversary sale in Fairmont, WV that begs to be sash or border.

    I'd actually like to make one of the many projects I have started, designed, planned and shopped for. I'm afraid it may turn out I like the idea of quilting more than the actual process. Too soon to tell. :?

    I have an Argyle design I need to get done for my DGD and a flannel one just for us to curl up with this winter - gets cold in Wisconsin! I also have some fall table runners I need to get done for fall craft fairs.

    A quilt called "Portuguese Tiles" by M'Liss Rae Hawley. It is for my Mother's birthday which is at the end of October....I have the fabric, but haven't even washed it yet. The big problem is I have no time to myself just now, my step-Dad died suddenly on the 2nd of this month, which was a very sad time...there was the funeral on the 13th and other very major family dramas/disasters....My sister and I are in constant contact and neither of us are spending any time at our homes whilst we support and help Mum as well as taking care of some other family business. As I type, my brilliant husband is off to Mum's to fix a gushing tap (she lives 40 mins away)....I haven't been by the QB for ages and can't even do a bit of hand-work in the evenings. I only got a chance to visit today as I needed to do some computer maintenance whilst my washing cycle was on. Miss you quilters heaps.....wish me luck on my quest for quilt start....yet alone completion!
