    Quiltermomma.....that 365 is a monster so I totally get it. Will make a cute mini. I'm still working on the SBS and have 82 out of the 140 completed. Worked on the applique blocks today, which I Love to do. Also, began preparing the applique pieces for the border for this project. This quilt will be my largest project to date.... I'm in it to win it!!!

    March UFO Completed

    Rocky makes a great mascot!
    I have finished the quilt I made from my mom's cut pieces. This is the quilt that matches the 2 pillows I made for my daughters. Mom had cut about 50 diamond shapes from 4 fabrics, all in a purple theme. She died in May 2005, and her health was failing during that spring, so I'm sure she cut these prior to Feb. 2005, making these pieces 13+ years old. There was enough flowered fabric and light purple for me to cut pieces to make a total of 18 blocks. I did have to buy the pale purple which I used as the outer pieces of each block, the backing, and the binding. I pieced extra batting in each diamond shape to make them stand out some. Mom's shapes didn't have exact angles, so they didn't fit perfectly, but I left them as is because she cut them that way. The quilt is about 48 inches square and I'll think of Mom every time I look at it.

    Conchalea, I think this needs to be your sofa snuggle quilt for cool nights in Texas. My SIL loves the simple quilt made for her from her dad's shirts...so meaningful to you, too.

    OKsewglad, you are right about it being meaningful. It’ll probably be on my couch & have cats snuggling with me & it.

    Conchalea, Such an amazing quilt. I started quilting about a year after my mother passed away. I wish I had kept some of her clothes to make a memory quilt. Enjoy your mom’s quilt and all the precious memories it will bring to you.

    That looks like a wonderful snuggle quilt Conchalea!

    Dedemac- I like both of those that you posted in the last few days... good going working on them both!

    Glad Rocky decided to be our mascot!

    I'm running behind on getting to a UFO this month because I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy a Sweet Sixteen!!! It's used and fit my budget, has all the accessories I wanted and none that I didn't and best of all, it's only an hour and a half away, so we're off to pick it up tomorrow! So yesterday and today I've been making space for it in my studio.

    Conchalea.....beautiful and special. Your mother's legacy is living on with your use of her beautiful work and stash. So cool.

    quiltermomma.....I am so focused on getting this done. Thank you for your encouragement!

    Rob...OMG!!! I am so excited for you! I'm probably going to get one of these when I move instead of standing long-arm. We'll see. You'll be knocking out the UFO's with this baby. Please share your journey with me as you learn.

    The flu has run its course at my LA house. Dropping off 2 quilts to her tomorrow that have been ready for a month!!! May Hoo!

    Thank you all for the compliments on my mom’s quilt, as I think of it. I appreciate each of them. I believe she would be pleased with it.
    Rryder, I look forward to seeing your new-to-you machine. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one. Be sure to share photos & all you’re able to do with it.

    Tonight got the remaining blocks of a UFO project cut, and can now sew them at my leisure...as when I go to my Q Buddy's for a Sew Day...Only 1 full day before the LA gets put in.

    Conchalea that's lovely.

    I'm excited for you both Rob and oksewglad. Have fun with your new toys.

    Oh, I so love my LA and glad I have it. They do take time to learn, but so worth the effort. So much information on YouTube in how to use them and lots of inspiration on how to quilt things. I am with the others, we are so thrilled for you. It is nice to have mine inside the house instead of in the garage. I am in process of cleaning up my fabric and storing it better so we can park a car in the garage again.
    I finished up a UFO flimsy this morning. I worked on it during my lunch hour at the office, I get to bring in my old Singer sewing machine to work on things. Slowly but surely, I put the borders on and it is ready. I even got my binding set to go, doing the faux flange binding technique with the left over strips that were cut. Hope to have another show and tell this week. Now onto a couple of those applique projects that I have to get done. I love applique, get all excited, get everything cut and then get stuck on the vines. I am going to find a good way to do those one of these days.

    Thanks for all the encouragement...I think the room is ready except for MrOK and #1DS to take the church pew out..and yes, the room the pew is moving to is ready as well...LOL sometimes life is a domino effect! I'm so lucky to have the seller come and set it up for me and give me a few lessons...now have to find some fabric and batting to do our practice runs....then it's onto some flimsies! I work on Friday...boss expects me to show up, and she cautioned me not to stay up all night!

    I have been looking a few youtubes...also have MQ on my domestic machine, but so looking forward to not manhandling a large quilt.

    OK, I look forward to progress reports with your LA. I think I’d like to have one but can’t justify the expense. I have my eye on a new (at least to me) motorcycle, so a LA isn’t on my horizon. Truthfully, the motorcycle probably isn’t either!

    Watch a few of Angela Walters longarm videos. That will get you going with the mojo on the LA. She simplifies it so you can do some nice edge to edge and learn how to get across evenly.

    The LA is set up and my first sample done. Last night I made up a small quilt (30x36) from some kitchen themed fabrics. I had so much fun sewing this morning! To me it is so much easier than on my sewing machine...my stitches are more even...I do have a stitch regulator.

    I'm going to load a BH scrap quilt this afternoon and start a simple meander on it...Oh happy day! Maybe I will get a big UFO done this month!

    oksewglad- That's fantastic, so glad you're enjoying your new toy. It sounds like you are already doing well with it!

    I got the Sweet Sixteen all set up, and returned some order to the studio, then spent the last couple of hours playing around with it. So far, so good. Did a little micro quilting on a new collaborative project! So nice having all this space.

    Thanks happylab. I've been watching for it.

    I finished a UFO tonight, so I'll try to post a photo tomorrow. Need better light before I can take one.
