    I am jumping feet first into needle turn applique. I am making a turtle quilt for my 9 year old and a bear quilt for my 4 year old. The quilt for my father is en route to a LAQ.

    I've got 6 placemats for a few of the grandkids, make-up bags for my girls, ornaments, and a few other items I haven't decided on yet.

    My friend and I are getting together and making casserole carriers, coasters, totes and anything else we can think of. We will have a 3 day marathon and see what we can do. We laugh so much and have a great time.

    I'm making a small log cabin table runner I saw in a quilt magazine for all the women in my small group. The same pattern, but different colors. Then, there is a small piece of the same gold fabric that's in every one to keep them together.

    I'm searching for a website I used to have the boys make coasters for their teachers last year. You make them out of 5 squares and there is a piece of wonder under or something in it too. Instead of sewing it in a 4 patch, you fold the pieces and stitch all around the end, then you flip it right side out and you end up with a beautiful four patch and it's a coaster. I know I found the website through QB, but no idea what they were called to try and search for them.

    You girls have any ideas about search words so I can try to find them? They were super easy to do. I helped my boys make them last year. I traced lines and let them cut out the squares. They folded them and set them all up, then I stitched around the edges, they did the rest...all out of cute Christmas fabric. Made a set of four for each of their teachers.

    No quilts this year, probably next year.

    Such a great idea, wish my QB buddy was around to do the same. Working is to much time consuming

    Thank you so much for posting the links for using blue jeans. DD asked me earlier if we could use a pair of her jeans to make a purse from.

    mpeters1200 -- go to the top of the page and click on "search", put into the blank that comes up "mug rugs" and that will give you some good ways to make coasters, or mug rugs.

    I'm making potholders to go with the dishcloths I knitted for co-workers. I made a pillow cover for my DD. And I made myself a decoration to go on my front door.

    I have almost finished several sets of placemats and matching napkins and just ordered fabric for some table runners. However, I like for these to lie very flat so I have fused these and not quilted them. Does that count? I am going to make everyone sets of microwave bowls and those will be quilted. Also homemade soaps and some rice bags.
