    after reading about what your were doing today and all threads about scraps, I started by making a wide strip from my huge pile left over strips....then I cut that strip into strips., and sewed black strips inbetween, changing the direction of each strip set...then it still didn't looked that good, so I squared it up and cut four triangles and then changed their positions and resewed....I quilted it and made a zippered tote with the back having a pocket made from a leftover block from the quilt I made for Joann's contest (which I didn't win)...made a long, wide shoulder strap and added a left over scrap strip....done! I'll try to add pictures....The process, as always was the fun part!

    I didn't get any sewing done today. Had lunch with my college son. My back has been bothering me so I am just taking it easy. tomorrow is a quick trip to the grocery store after church and then I am home until Wed. Mine, Dh and ds's schools have all canceled for Monday and Tues. I will be sewing tomorrow and then if we lose power I have some hand quilting to do and some cutting I can do in the day light.

    I just started Judy Niemeyer's Indian Summer quilt. I have 21 gorgeous batik fabrics to work with. It makes me happy just to be with such beautiful fabric. I am one happy woman.

    Had a headache all morning, so didn't get anything done.
    This afternoon I crochet 2 flowers to put on boot cuffs that I'm making. Now I'm sewing the cuffs together.
    Yesterday I finished my Christmas quilt.

    I'm working on a Christmas quilt. I bought a 1/2 yard bundle of metallic Christmas fabrics. Wasn't sure what to do with it. So, I decided to cut them into 2 1/2 in strips. I added three more from my stash. It's really different than anything I've done before. We'll see how it turns out.

    Well, I didn't get through the quilting on my quilt top today as planned. I was searching for books and found all these pdf files... I thought I'd share them with you. They're all free patterns...

    Today I will be working on finishing a quilt for my great nephew, a waist apron for me, a table runner that needs a new binding, a 4 year overdue friendship quilt for a good friend, and hopefully start measuring many quilt tops I've done over the years to determine backing sizes so I can finish them........Looking forward to seeing alot of pics on here, so get your cameras out. Happy quilting y'all.

    I bought a pile of fabric at the Goodwill outlet. Quite a few blocks were cut (6 inch squares) So I've been cutting up small pieces into squares to make just a simple 9 patch. I have over 200 now. The grandkids came over and DGD saw the pile and asked if she could piece it. She has 4 younger siblings including an almost 1 year old - so for her to cut it out is a real mess. I'm thinking about letting her do the quilt. It will be just odd kinds of scrap material. Half of the blocks were already cut out so I just cut more the same. I think I'm going to give her enough to do 2 or 3 quilt squares every time I see her - that way if the little guys get into them it won't be a huge loss... Then maybe we can cut the blocks into DP3 if she is willing.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Been getting house in order and all the laundry done so I can spend the next few days finishing my DGD Mary's quilt. Also need to run off a few dolly quilts for my next Guild meeting. Now I have to hope Hurricane Sandys doesn't ruin my plans buy knocking the power out. May in Jersey

    I want to quilt a customers quilt on my LA but I am afraid to plug her in because of the high wind gusts that may cause power surges. Makes me cranky. I live on the coast of Va. and we are holding our breaths.

    Keeps me sane to be sewing and talking and waiting waiting waiting.

    I'm working on 2 skateboard quilt tops and to use up some scraps from the skateboards, a set of log cabin blocks. The skateboard block was originally in Quiltmaker magazine and it was modified a little. It's a great way to use up those funky large scale prints that you don't know what to do with.

    The skateboard quilt top will look very much like this one: http://tinyurl.com/8wvz5on

    I'm working on 8-point stars. I assist the local American Indian Center making regalia (dance shawls). After I make the stars in different tribal colors, we'll applique them on shawls. Not exactly quilting, but close enough, and the dancers seem to appreciate it.
