    What are you working on??

    My brother loved the quilt that I made my son's girlfriend. He is very picky but I think I finally am good enough were he will really like it. I made my son's girlfriend a circle raw edge Alice and Wonderland land quilt. I tried posting no luck...oh well...its on my blog. I am too lazy to try resizing to upload...sometimes it loads and some times it doesn't here. Well any ways I have a ton of Baklic (or however its spelled) and spent the morning cutting 8 inch circles and 10 inch squares all were washed but the brown material...just waiting for it to dry in the dyer. I can't wait to start sewing this! I also cut a bunch of 3 1/2 inch tumblers to do a leader and ender quilt...come on hurry up and dry...LOL...surpose I could clean till then. Happy quilting everyone! So what are you making??

    I am making Christmas placemats for next year's gifts. My co-worker has family of five and my friends have a family of six. Then I'm thinking of making some for other families, but am not sure that will happen.

    hmmm...that is a great idea since many of the Christmas fabrics are on sale. But I think I have had enough of Christmas for this year and ready for Spring. So far we have had a very mild winter. Cold for a few days but not bad. This morning it was pouring out so glad it was not snow.

    I just finished a blanket and pillow for my sister's rodeo room...her hubby used to be in rodeos. And I need some batting to finish up a Rudolph panel blanket for my daughter. Next up is to make some curtains for my living room while I wait for hubby to find me some DCU to start on his quilt.

    i am almost done with a binding on a quilt for my youngest neice- i have a wolf quilt loaded on the frame to be quilted (and i'm sitting here on the computer instead of quilting it)
    i have a wool (paper cut applique) block all pinned onto a back ground square- for a hand project-
    and i've been working on special request pillow cases for my daughter & 2 granddaughter's--
    oh and i plan to start the new year doing the Carol Doak 50 stars in 50 weeks activity- and have a friend in Georgia who is supposed to work on a star sampler quilt with me (long distance) --- guess that's enough for the moment
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    I am still sorting out my studio from after Christmas so I can get 5 quilts quilted for the grands. I gave them the tops and will finish the quilts hopefully in January. Last night I made curtains to go over my fabric storage to keep dust and light off. I also made a bathroom curtain and sorted fabric and rolled it onto foam cores. I have a nasty cold so don't know what I am going to do today, depends on how I feel alter on.

    I finished up the center part of my Christmas Quilt. Now need to figure out the boarders and then FMQ it. Hopefully be done for next Christmas. Have a 2FAQ that needs finishing on the FMQ. Lost count of how many tops need FMQ done but am hoping it is around 10. These are Table Runner up to Lap size quilts, no bed size quilts started. My mom is coming down in a week so will be working on projects with her and need to get my brothers Christmas Gift done so she can bring it home with her. Then lurking on the horizon is the need to pack everything up since we have to move by end of April. Going to be a fun year

    I have a couple Bow Tuck purses to complete and a jelly roll strip quilt I'm in the middle of sewing together. Plus I have 2 quilts ready to be quilted. And that's not counting all the projects I have in mind!

    I'm dealing with scraps...my drawers were overflowing, it's been so long since I've organized them. And tomorrow, going back to a Log Cabin for my sister. I'm doing it in sections...7 of them...and now it's time to assemble the sections, do a little more quilting and add the borders!

    Made potato soup... picked the last harvest from the garden (salad, beets, and cabbage- on New Year's eve in NY!) ... tomorrow it is supposed to finally turn into winter, and I will be working on a star sampler quilt for my son. Colors of denim blue, cream, and faded reds to go with his room. Lots of plaids to make it masculine. I have quite a few blocks made but unfortunately they have turned out to be slightly different sizes and I'm not sure just what I'm supposed to do about that :-( Well I had fun making the blocks anyway...

    Ummm...potato soup, one of our favorites. Thanks for reminding me...I was wondering what to have for lunch tomorrow!

    About your star blocks, slightly different sizes. You could frame them and then trim the frames to make them all the same size. Usually no one can even tell there's a variation.

    Today I finished some quilted "chargers" for going under dinner plates, to protect the table when our food is very hot. Just HSTs made from scraps, 5 x 5, with rounded corners, two layers of batting and quilted in a spiral. Then I lengthened a new top sheet. It's aggravating how manufacturers package sheet sets with a fitted bottom sheet ample to fit a deep mattress, but by the time you tuck the top sheet in at the bottom there's not enough to fold over your quilt at the head of the bed. I had bought two sets (at a great sale price) because the color is a little uncommon...thought we might need a second fitted sheet if the first one wears out first. So I cut 16" off the extra top sheet and attached it with a flat fell seam that will never show, and probably will make extra pillow cases out of the rest. Now I can get back to quilting.

    I just started a Halloween quilt. I'm either incredibly slow or ahead of the game. And after reading one of the other posts I think I should make a couple of bow tucks of my own.

    I've just been finishing up small odds and ends. I like to do that between larger projects especially during a time like the holidays when I don't seem to have large chunks of stitching time with family and friends dropping in. I finished some more washcloth bibs for my DGD, made an apron for our bookkeeper, replaced zippers in DSIL's jeans, fixed DH's coveralls and stitched my BOM blocks for my middle of the month gathering at the LQS. My to-do basket is almost empty and I have tidied up the sewing room. I want to start a BQ quilt for DD using the wonderful Spaniel fabric she found (from the UK) and don't want to cut the pieces too small.

    I'm waiting on my Christmas present to arrive and then hopefully I can do some embroidery on my purses. That's all I'm working on right now, trying to get enough made to put in a consignment shop or for friends to take to their offices. I have a couple of different ideas for bags so I need to do a sample and see how it goes.

    I finished up two quilts for my kids, a bunch of clothes for another's American Doll. Last night (after all company had gone to their respective homes after holiday) I made a doll quilt and a tote bag with the fabric left over from the GD's Princess quilt. Will finish up more NICU quilts THEN start on my brother's quilt (for Christmas 2012). House looks well lived in, so I guess I should be 'working' on that as well. Happy and Healthy New Year to all of you!
