    What quilting project will you be working on today?

    I was searching the internet, looking at books, going through my fat qtrs, trying to decide what to make, when I noticed my pile of scraps from my very last project. I have decided to make a string block quilt, to clean out my mess, I may donate this one. I started cutting up my scraps and to my surprise there is quite a bit and once you cut them into 2 1/2 strips they are also more organised and easier to imaige a quilt being made from them. My husband said I really should do that when more of my scrap bins...they are becoming unruly. I was just going to cut them into shapes and strips, but so glad I have decided to use them right away. So happy quilting everyone...stay safe during the storm.

    think I will spend the day making a twister quilt. Yesteday I quilted three table topper in anticipation of hand sewing the binding on when the storm hits as we may not have electricity.

    I have to work this weekend so won't be quilting much. Will be doing the binding on a customer's quilt this evening. Just finished a small wall hanging last night for my DD for her birthday.

    My daughter requested placemats for Christmas, so that's what I'll be working on.

    Arranging 42 different blocks to get ready for putting the sashing on. Next project already being thought of. Too many ideas and not enough time for them all.

    I have been on a tear to get tops quilted! So, last night I picked the backing fabric for a wall-hanging (Pacific Rim's Halloween 2FAQ) and today I will be quilting it -- just as soon as I get off this board, I will start.

    Off to the state (Iowa) cross country meet. It's 32 degrees right now so I'll dress warm and cheer hard. Finished my Snoopy quilt last night and got it washed. Also will spend a some time thinking/praying for all of you east coast quilters.

    I'm hitting the local fabric warehouse and then I will, I will, I will finally start the FMQ on a quilt on which I've been working for three months. Maybe.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Am working at the quilt shop today, as the boss is away. I probably won't get anything done at home, but am working on a Hopscotch quilt at the shop.

    Love scrappy quilts! I hope you'll post a picture when you're done!

    I'll be working on quilting a quilt I'm making for my adult stepson. It's going to be his Christmas present, but I just found out he's going to come visit us (with his new girlfriend! yay!), so my deadline is sooner than I thought.

    I'm hoping to reiron and resew the sashing to reconect my QAYG that I took apart, and squared two weeks ago. Before that I have to go food shopping for the storm, and vaccuum under everything, and hit all the corners.. It seems that my buddy wouldn't get the ball under the armoire, as he hit a troop of dust bunnies, and thought they were attacking him. He stood there, and barked at the armoire until I got up to see the problem.. It was pretty bad. He wasn't even partially to blame, as he doesn't shed, and there was no dog hair.. Ughhhh

    I'm finishing a baby quilt for a shower. Doing the FMQ. Not as good as I'd like but still will be pretty, I hope.

    I love using 2.5 strips and it seems there are endless quilts to be made using them! Not to mention scrappy binding. I've got three UFOs in the binding stage, two that will be machine sewn and one that I'm 50% done with the handsewing. My dd, boyfriend and grand cats are coming for the weekend so looking forward to that.

    I am going to get out here in a bit to run errands....it's supposed to rain, and i want to get out and back before that happens. It actually looks cold because it's cloudy and windy out. I'm working on finishing this Cars quilt for a friend. I can't wait to finish it because I am working on a quilt for a friend of mine..It's gonna be sooo purty!! I'm about 1/4 of the way thru piecing the blocks.
    my name is becca and i'm a quilt-a-holic :-)

    I am going to a progressive sale at a LQS this morning. The first hour everything in the store is 30% off. So with half the quilting community in Central Oregon I will be there.

    Then I am going to make a Princess quilted bag for my granddaughter to match the Princess quilt and pillowcases that I made for her for her birthday next month. It is suppose to rain all weekend. So NASCAR and sewing.

    I am working on an "Alternating Squares" quilt top using Christmas fabrics. My goal is to finish piecing all of the blocks and to get at least 5 rows sewn together. That is probably an ambitious goal.
