    Yes, it's a row quilt that was done on a thread on this board, but offered by Claudia's Quilt Shoppe...we all had a great time, such wonderful people were on that thread...similar to this thread! We all were so supportive of each other...just like quilting friends are suppose to be! My great hopes (already working) for this thread!

    PS. I changed several rows, so I veered a bit from the original row by row quilt

    Wow michelehuston, those are gorgeous! They turned out well! I love log cabins, you did a wonderful job on them! The first one is for your new GD, and the 2nd one is for....me? I love purple. Now that you've completed these, you can gear up to knock out a few more!
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    michelehuston,
    Both of your quilts are very pretty. The purple fabric is intriguing. Like the light/dark log cabin.

    I finished the second baby quilt that I need for Sat.

    It measures 27' X 27". It's a little small but I hope the mommy likes it.

    Also pics of the Star Struck quilt.

    Can I join late? Also do I have to go on a fabric diet to join? I can't do diets so i would be doomed to failure but I can do UFOs and it is on my to do list. It would be way more fun to do it with all of you then by myself.

    While some consider your quilt a bit small, let me offer my perspective. When a child turns about two years old, he starts liking to hear stories about when he was "little" ... at that time, this little quilt will be just great for him to carry around with him. It won't drag on the ground, he will easily be able to roll it up for a pillow or whatever. I always encourage moms to have these small quilts around for use during that time, and your quilt will be great.

    Oh, she's so right. I just made my 2yr old a quilt and he drags it out of bed and around the house with him everywhere. Smaller size will save you wear and tear!

    Annaquilts, sure you can join...it's never too late! The objective of this thread is to finish up our UFO"S, WIPS, PIGS, etc and NOT buy any new fabric for new projects until we complete the ones we have laying around. If we NEED fabric to complete projects, that's fine, purchase what is needed. Otherwise, our UFO/WIPS will never end.

    Ultimately, there are no 'quilt police' and if you feel you need to purchase fabric for whatever reason, then that's your business, or you may just have a 'few' UFO's and have not amassed the collections that most of us have.

    Welcome onboard and do the best you can, we'll be cheering you on!

    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    LOL, I think your DD is right. And one thing leads into another...buying too much fabric lends itself into justifying it by 'grouping it' into 'kits' by putting a pattern we love with it, then that turns into our 'pigs'.

    After awhile, we then may start on it, but not finish because we've moved onto the new fabric we purchased, and the cycle begins again....

    Before we know it, we've got wips, ufos, pigs and they keep growing.....

    In order to stop the madness we have to stop buying the fabric, work on what we've already amassed and finish our projects.

    I think our grandmothers & mothers all had more money in the bank than in fabric.

    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    kateyb...you rock! Fabulous quilts!....just gorgeous! Maybe you can do a tute on your new designs on the split rails, I just love them! And 3 more done! How many have you scratched off of your list now? That's deserving of a gold star....and then back to knock out that list!

    This month has gotten away from me...way too short! Tomorrow is the last Friday of the month and you know what that means, Par-Tay time! Yes another 'all night' quilting party is right around the corner, tomorrow in fact!
    Here's how it works......
    1. Join in when you can on Friday night, ie log onto the thread when you being, a short 'Hi, I'm here' or something of that nature, maybe let us all know what project you'll be working on...etc. I will log on after work, etc. maybe by 7pm....
    2. Wear your most comfortable clothing, for me....robe & soft slippers.
    3. Work on our UFO, Wips, etc all night- or as long as you can stay awake! LOL!
    4. Post a picture of what you were working on, if you'd like. Hopefully it will be close to completion...
    Doing an all night party gives us that extra boost we may need of a large block of uninterrupted time to get our projects done.
    See ya at the Par-Tay!
    Thanks michele!
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    March is right around the corner and it marks our 3rd month into this challenge. Several here have done outstandingly well with completing quite a few projects, many others are working on large projects and are making good headway! Hurray!!!

    Once every 3 months we'll do an additional challenge, this might be a tough one for some, so some imput is appreciated by all.

    Let's plan on 1 weekend in March for our 'quilting retreat' weekend. It's more like a quilting marathon, and like a true marathon...it's a race with a declared 'winner', the winner will get a prize in the mail from me...don't be expecting a big prize package I'm not wealthy....

    If you can't do the whole weekend due to work or other pressing matters, you can still participate by doing blocks of time or 'all nighters' during the weekend. It will begin on a Friday night and go until Sunday night. By 10 pm Sunday night, post your pictures of what you've done over the weekend with some details as to what they are, ie. crib quilt, lap quilts...

    Judging will be fair and impartial....if you're working on a King sized bed quilt, the progress you've made on that counts just as much as someone knocking out 4 crib quilts or more, all depending on how far along you are. So don't be discouraged from joining in if you've got a large project.

    I'll judge the first 'quilting retreat' weekend, the winner of that one will judge the next 'quilting retreat' weekend, and so on and so forth.

    Now let's all pick a weekend that will suit most of us. How about the weekend of the 12th & 13th? the 13th is daylight savings time...we'll even gain an hour, whoo hoo...

    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    A big welcome to patski & Annaquilts, I almost forgot to add to you to our list! Can't wait to see your projects finished! If I've forgotten someone, please pm me...and my apologies! It's been a hectic month with work- both jobs! So I can get a little unfocused.
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    I'll be here for the party tomorrow night. I won't stay late. (I may make it until midnight.) I'm teaching my class for the guild Saturday. Need to be there shortly after 8 to set up for the class.

    That's great! Stay as long as you can, no pressure. You'll have a blast teaching your class, and the guild members are certainly lucky to have you! Maybe when you catch your breath, you can do a tutorial for us all as well.....love those new designs you came up with on your quilts!
