    I have been sitting outside on the patio binding a quilt that I am doing for my husband and I. I just finished machine sewing down the top and bottom binding (the two sides are done) and getting ready to hand sew it. I brought it in to show my husband and he said "Looks like a nice warm quilt for winter." I said "Yah, it is." He said "It's big!" I said "I know -- I can't wait for winter." DID I JUST SAY THAT????????

    So, now I am going out and finish the quilt and have me a little glass of the fruit of the vine and then call it a day! Or perhaps a season? Edie

    IMHO, the blue and white with a bit of yellow really pops! Very nice!

    Quilting is for any time of the year! If you're traveling, you just have to make your projects portable!

    Pretty - I am sitting on the couch flipping channels, purchased the quilt back for DD #2 and just can't bear to go into the sewing room - just not feeling it today. Glad you finished your projects and are enjoying the evening.

    I made 12 bow tie blocks for a swap I am in. And then sat down and looked at some fabric I bought this weekend.
    Had BLT sandwiches for dinner (tomatoes from the garden) and now I am going to go and look over some new patterns I picked up and dream of fabrics for them.

    Then I guess I have to think about going back to work tomorrow, it comes so quick!

    I have been working on a safari quilt-making blocks all day. Last adult child moved out this weekend (All 3 of the kids have returned home to live at some point), so that bedroom will be the guest bedroom and we're going jungle! I've always wanted to do a jungle room.

    I worked on my 2 "I Love Snow" quilts. I am making one for my daughter and one for me. Originally I bought just the material for a quilt for her, but it was all so cute I had to have one too. Haha.

    Working on nine patch blocks for a charity quilt and Bonnie Hunter cheddar bowtie blocks and Floribunda blocks. I just switch off from one to another to keep things interesting.

    Spent the morning ripping out FMQ stitches (supposed to be a star, but they looked much more like a retarded starfish.) Decided to leave the center of the blocks blank. Then work. Tomorrow I erase the star marks and join the binding strips.

    Paper piecing a awareness quilt. Sweeping, piecing, sweeping, peicing...I make such a mess when PP. My socks look furry from all the thread and snippets of fabric. I thought I would have the top done by tonight but think again, maybe by tuesday night. Well thats what I'm shooting for.

    Spent the day running around helping my son....between him and the vast amount of weeds in our garden, quilting has sadly taken a backseat...I am determined to try and set 1 hour aside for quilting each day and maybe 15 mins on the board...Otherwise I'm in danger of losing the plot!

    Well, I'm not wishing for winter just yet, but I am thinking about fall. I'm thinking and planning on what I want to make for fall. I've got new coasters, placemats, a tablerunner, hot mitts, and toss pillows for the couches in mind to make within the next three weeks. I best get busy!
