Poor "Pearl" has black smut all over her face! I have no idea how to remove it! :twisted: :shock:
    Well, LA's Awsome Degreaser was what finally took the ick off of the machine. I don't know what do with the quilt. I might just pass it on to be part of a charity quilt. Too many errors to put it in a show quilt.

    Working on my Judy Niemeyer Glacier Star-last set of classes for it this coming weekend-will have enough done to construct the top with the extensions. Then comes the big decision-how to quilt it!!

    I am trying to get a full size quilt quilted that I have been working
    on for a few years. I am on the border so I hope it won't be long
    now. Then I can post a picture.

    I cut up all of my scraps into squares and rectangles over the last couple of weeks, so today, I've been working on a scrappy garden brick wall quilt top and a Christmas ornament that I saw on-line.

    Finished up binding a quilt, finished up some tea towels in red, and have started a new towel to crewel.

    I put the binding on a whimsical fall wall hanging (a UFO of several years) and met with 2 friends on Saturday to start a tumbling block quilt using diamonds/triangles instead of set in seams. The tumbling block quilt is addictive!

    I'm so glad I started this thread. When I got frustrated this weekend, I remembered how many are all working on projects like me and I felt like I had commerades in arms.

    I completely messed up the inner border on both the runners. I accidently used the the wrong color on both of them. I don't care. I kept them in cause they are so close to being done it's just not worth taking them all out. I'll call it the creative difference from the pattern or something.

    I only have one left to cut and piece. Hoping everything will be done by next weekend so I can spend November quilting them.

    Thank you for all your replies! Really inspired me to keep going.

    Melissa

    Finally finished the denim quilt for my oldest son...thank goodness. Probably won't make another one as they are so heavy to work on. It had 35 10 inch blocks and a 4 inch border all around. I lined the back with red fleece with little black paw prints on it. He came by last night and I gave it to him and he was really thrilled with it. (so Momma was thrilled) It will be so nice to cold nights.

    I'll be sitting to my quilting rack embroidering designs onto a quilted recliner throw it took me all of two weeks to piece together in april this year. It is designated weekend work, because I have another quilt top to do during the weekdays.
