    Hi,

    Wow, please post pictures so we can all enjoy!

    I just learned how to paper piece Monday night and have made 4 blocks so far. Wow, so easy and fun!Thanks again Sharon for teaching me in the snow storm! Was fun!

    I posted 2 of the blocks so far! I am going to start a blog just for show and tell of the things that I am making.

    I need to get to bed, 3:27 a.m. Indiana time. oh my!

    Karen

    My camera made it look like the blocks are crooked, but not, hummm, need to figure out a better way to take pictures of them! (crazy camera)

    Both of my guilds are participating in the Million pillowcase project. I think I will whip up at least two pillowcases for each group and maybe a couple of Linus Quilts for the one meeting this thursday. They are actually going to be having a hands on workday. It is not physically good for me to drag my sewing machine etc. to the meeting for just a couple of hours. I will take hand sewing supplies so that I can help by sewing on labels etc. I currently have the parts of a T shirt quilt I am putting together for a customer laid out on my ping pong table. I guess I might get a little done on it today.

    I would love to see pictures of this - I'm OBSESSED with turtles!

    pattil - we're getting more snow too! it's the only way i've been able to get stuff done it seems!


    -- I'm going to make a tote bag/purse out of some turtle fabric I've been hoarding for a few years, then use the scraps in a "scrappy" turtle quilt (also collecting/hoarding fabric for that for years).

    -- I would love to get the tote finished, the turtle top pieced, and pieces cut for another wedding present today... ah such lofty goals...

    Well the reverse applique idea went out the window. It just seems to waste a great deal of material. So instead I'm embroidering the third butterfly on my hand applique block. Then choosing what technique I'd like to try next.

    Almost finished sewing binding on a quilt for church, then I have another top that needs to be pinned and quilted and a third quilt I'm working on the blocks. Am I the only one that can't stick with one project before starting another. I wake up and say, "Well, which one will I work on today." So many projects and so little time.

    A sign of a true quilter is having many projects in the works at the same time. You're are not the only one who can't stick to just one project! :lol:

    I am going on retreat this coming weekend and have many things to bring with me. I'm going to be borrowing a friend's Bernina machine to do some stippling on a couple of small wall hangings, I plan on doing some Claudia's Quilt Shop mystery blocks, and will also be making the Notions Wall Hanging from Quilter's Cache.

    I don't work on small projects, baby quilts are the smallest I ever do, haven't done one of those in years, next two will be baby quilts. This week I'm organizing my fabric, got a new big cabinet and folding it to get it where I can see it and see what I have. I have tons and tons.

    Debra I really like the Moroccan Tile you did. You did a very good job picking the colors. Is this going to be a table runner?

    Karen, did you draft you own blocks or are they a particular pattern. If they are patterns please let me know where you found them. Thanks.

    Yes, thank you for the compliment. I need to small things now and then to feel like I'm getting something done.

    Sorry...I cut your name off the quote. I didn't want the pic to post again. I'll get the hang of this yet ;-)

    I am working on 50 wallets to give at a Tea at my Mother's Church. I am the guest speaker April 24th for their Mother's Day Meeting. Sooooo I am making all the ladies a nice gift. I think they will love them.. I made the Wall Hanging and presented that to the Ladies Group last month and they loved it. They were so very surprised.

    That table runner is sooooooooooo beautiful! I love to work on table runners cause they aren't so big. And your right,"so much to do and so little time" my words exactly.

    Looking for ideas to make a signature quilt for a family reunion as a gift for the hostess. Have to really get cracking as the reunion is in July. Want it to be really nice. Also starting my 8 year old granddaughter on her second project - a "Snowball" wall hanging. She has picked out the materials - I will do the rotary cutting - but she does everything else. I think we may have a quilter on our hands if I can teach her the value of patience. She wants to work up to entering a full size quilt in the local fair in January. Wish me luck on both projects.

    I'm having my personal quilting olympics. While the TV is on to any competition, I am happily finishing up projects leftover from the summer, when I had more time to sew. On my table now - a small string pieced quilt, of batiks, will get donated. Also, a stack and slash with very spring-like colors - needed sashing and finally am getting around to it. Also a black and red quilt from a purchased pattern needs to be finished. I promised myself I would not start something new until these were done. That's motivation!
