    What small quilt projects are you working on today? I thought this would be a cool thread.

    I am going to start making some potholders, trivets, oven mitts, etc.

    I cut batting and backing so I can pin and start to quilt my latest project tomorrow. I've been practicing FMQ so wish me luck. (Still can't get the hang of it LOL)

    I just made two potholders yesterday, and an applique cat from the FatCat site just for fun today, have no idea what I'll do with it. lol!!
    I finally got my DDIL's argyle quilt top done, and need to get backing for it, and fabric for my son's 'birthday quilt', so it was kind of nice just making some things for fun! :)

    Today I am going to do a reverse applique block. I'm learning to quilt and this is lesson 5. My directions really don't explain what that back piece of material is suppose to look like. I don't know if it's suppose to be the same size as the block or just alittle larger than the cutout. So right now I'm looking for directions that clarify that.

    I'm going to use up some scraps today and hopefully finish my locker hook rug. (But I have to admit, I'm online trying to find a fabric store open on Sunday)

    Working on borders for a queen size quilt. Making a braid. I have 2 done, 1 with abut 3 more rows of blocks and then the last one to do. I figure I will finish them to day and tomorrow start attaching. I'd like to have this quilt top ready to send out by end of week. (UFO #1 of the year!)

    Might pull another UFO- a table runner to do for some easy satisfaction of finishing a project. Only 6 more UFOs to get off my list!

    :) Good luck, everybody!

    I have cut out several small tissue holders and bookmarks that I like to have around for little gifts etc. I hope to start sewing on those soon. I am working on using up some of my small scraps. I am also using up my scraps by cutting out a crayon box quilt. I hope to be done with that today.

    I started a baby quilt which I've named "So much fun ahead," when son and DIL announced a grandchild on the way. I'm using 4" blocks (both pieced and appliqued)that I had on hand, arranging them by a calendar theme (seasons, holidays, etc. in calendar order). After I got started, they made another announcement: TWINS! So now I'm making another set of 4" squares for a second quilt.

    In honor of Valentine's Day, I'm going to piece 2 hearts with background/sashing and put each small "block" into a photo frame with a lovely label on back. I'll give them as February birthday gifts to a daughter who is physically + mentally challenged from severe Tuberous Sclerosis and her mother who has worked 30 hard years as her advocate.

    I am seam ripping the binding i decided to machine sew onto my daughters quilt. it ended up a mess and looks terrible. once I seam rip it, I'll be hand sewing it. I hate it, but it looks the best. I finally figured out how to do it correctly.........

    It's so fun reading that SO many people are doing sewing oriented things today!! I am STILL folding all my fabrics... my poor husband must not have had a clue - he asked me, when I was starting my fifth container, "You're folding ALL that?" He has no idea how much more I have to go and how much I've done while he's been busy elswhere!!! :) I'm SO glad to get my house organized though - --

    Well, we had some water damage from the snow here in Oklahoma, and guess which ceiling had the worst damage? Yep! You guessed it. My sewing room, but that's a good thing. After replacing the roof, I got a new ceiling, and my room now has a fresh coat of paint. I can't wait to move back in there and start sewing, again.
    I spent this afternoon shampooing the carpet.
    Next the molding goes up and I am ready to go:-)
    I am excited!!!!

    Just finished my February doll quilt for the swap. Next project is BIG - king size log cabin for our bed. I've been waiting a year to do it because of several "small" projects. Can't wait to do a really big one now.
