Default Let's see what you are working on!

I'd love to see some works-in-progress. I'll start...
This is going to be a wallhanging for the computer area which faces the kitchen. It will be three more blocks, to make it square. I am using the Strips and Curves technique of making a whole piece of cloth out of 1 1/2" strips and then cutting some of my shapes out of that.
I told a friend I was making a purple, turquoise and lime green quilt and she looked at me and said "You're going to do what?!"

So, come on, show us your works in progress!

Watson

That's fantastic, Watson-- love the colors and the design.

Here's something I've been working on for months, I'm now doing some quilting in the borders which aren't shown in this photo, but it's slow going. The butterfly is thread painted and then I stuffed a couple of inches of wool batting under it and quilted it to the backing. I've added a lot of thread painting to the areas behind the butterfly so that they are more veiled, just a suggestion that there's something there. I'd hoped to have it finished this month, but it's going to be sometime in October before I've got it done.

I'm finally starting to quilt our grandson's two sided quilt: Dr. Who Tartis and Apollo 11. It won't let me add a thumbnail. Love your color combinations Watson.

EmiliasNana- click on quick reply. then look below the box that you are going to type your reply in. There will be two buttons there, one says "post quick reply" and the other says "Go Advanced". Click on the button that says "go advanced" . Then the paperclip icon will show up.

Default The year of the Covid Quilts

I decided that all my family members needed a new quilt. My youngest DGD's Fancy Foxes is quilted (by me using a friend's longarm. Not perfect in any way, shape or form!!! but I had a lot of fun) and just needs binding. Her birthday is tomorrow and we are hoping to see them for a Canadian Thanksgiving dinner in 10 days. If all goes well, I will give it to her then.

String quilt for DD and SIL. Top is finished but I won't attempt to quilt this one myself. Just too big!!

Oldest DGD's birthday is in January. She is a tween and I took inspiration from Emeliasnana's lovely 'Beautiful' quilt for her DGD. Hailey has had a lot of input on this and I think she really appreciated my asking for her assistance. The top two rows (under the pillows) are log cabin diamonds. The row of stars will actually be at foot end--just there to remind me of width. All scraps except for her name and the constant background.

Great projects and a great question. Looks like everyone has some beautiful and creative ideas under the needle.

Here is my little project. Right now, only the "b" and the first "o" done because of interruptions. I still need to make the last "o". It has monster eyes so I'll add the colored ones on the table.

Middle picture will become a bag for halloween hunt for DGSon.

Last picture will be dino pillow cases. The bones and white are glow in the dark.

Everything looks great, my quilting friends! This is what I am working on. It's a quilt top in the Round Robin exchange. I need to put another three sides of the zig zag on it, and my part will be done.
