    I need to finish a teacher tote bag for my granddaughter's teacher. (School closes next Friday !) Then I'll put border on 2 quilts, then maybe start another Downy quilt. Meanwhile, my mind is racing ahead to what projects I'll make for Christmas fairs. Now's the time to get started on them !!!!

    I'm finishing up 5 more of these, using orphan blocks and scraps. My friends love these notebook journals.

    I love your journal covers!! I need three small items for the end of Sept., I think I may make journal covers a little different than usual.

    I'm working on the second top of a set of baby quilts for my boss's twins - due in December. Both are girls, so the quilts are primarily pink and green.

    Well, it's not a small project, but it is a project. I am working on stitch-in-the-ditch on a queen sized quilt. And, I am miserable right now. I read an article of how hard it is to sew a straight line. . . .well, I'm hating these ten ditch stitches right about now. I have no idea why this newbie-to-quilting quilter decided to do it instead of the free motion quilting that I was doing in the other section. No idea. Oh well, gotta learn. Thanks for the post and happy quilting!!! ;0)

    I am working on hand-pieced mini-blocks that I reduced in size. The original blocks were meant to be 9" square. I am making mine 6" square and won't make as many--probably 9 in all. It is the commercial pattern: "Copy-Cat Quilts" that are tessellated cats done in 2 main colors. A cat is seen right-side up, then, when turned upside-down, the opposite colored cat is seen. I am constructing it without templates, instead using strips of fabrics in the 2 main colors. Yes, quite a challenge! I don't see how to include a photo here so....

    Thank you, I will. I am assembly-line piecing the blocks and haven't fully completed them yet. I will photograph the finished blocks for you. Then, after I assemble the blocks I will post a photo of that. I had this pattern many years ago when it appeared in, I think, the large Needlearts Magazine. But I have moved three times since and it got away from me. I searched for the pattern online and was blessed to find it. I found a photo of the pattern book and will try to add it here.

    I am not familiar with these. Can you describe how they are done? Any photos? Always looking for new unique ideas.

    Okay, all done with my Copy-Cat Quilt. It measures approx. 24" square. The 'yarn balls' are actually Yo-Yos I made and tacked in place when the quilt was completely finished. Hope you like the photos!

    I am not finishing ANY small project (BOO HOO) because I am still in the middle of that Bali Wedding Star. This thing is 34 squares and I will have 16 done by Sunday with the other 18 in some partial stage of completion.

    I long for a small, simple project!!!
