Weekend quilting plans? 6/18-6/19

msmeowJune 17, 2011

Wow, I beat Linda OH to the weekend question! :) What's everyone up to this weekend?

Tomorrow we're going over to Lakeland to visit parents. I have one more Ode to Blue & Grey block to get caught up, so hopefully I can get that done Sunday afternoon. I want to make a few more minis for the AAQI, then I have 4 more little tops to quilt for my guild's charity. That will keep me busy for a while! LOL Plus I'll be working on Mark's BD quilt whenever he's not around to catch me. I'm off the week of July 4 so I should be able to make good progress on his quilt that week.

I'm going to work on quilting my circle quilt. I had planned to give this quilt as a Christmas gift last year but I was only done with the top. So I showed the quilt top and then took it back to quilt it. I made significant progress early in the year and then hit a mental block on how to finish quilting it. Last night I finally made a decision and I'd love to finish it or come close in the next weekend or two!

Go Lola, go Lola! You'll be so proud of yourself when you finish quilting! I'm glad you are over your block...that's really frustrating.

Am working on a sailboat applique baby quilt this weekend. And have started a crocheted afgan this afternoon. Hope everyone has a great weekend. We are in drought and desperately need some rain.

Best to you,

DS is on his way to town so will take he & girlfriend out to dinner when they get here. Packing the motorhome tomorrow for a week in the Mesa Verde/Four Corners area - leaving Sunday. I will try to work on hand quilting an queensize UFO (10+ years!!!) in between packing ... too big to take along. I have a small baby quilt to hand quilt for the trip. I am trying to decide on fabrics for another baby quilt for a July 10 shower (guess I'd better get busy!)

Greetings from Columbus, OH! My DD and I went to the NQA show today and found lots of goodies. We took lots of pictures. I will post more later.

Sandra 'd love to send you some rain:) We have't had TOO much, but could certainly share!

I had hoped to sew all day today & get caught up w/blocks for another swap I'm doing, plus get block #3 for the June lotto done. Alas!, DGS#2 spent the night last night (which is why I'm online now! at 4:30am lol) He will be here all day today while DGS#1 is in a soccer tournament out of town. He will entertain himself part of the time, so I'll be able to quilt a little, just not the marathon I had hoped for! :) Oh well, time w/them at this age is short, I'll enjoy it while I have it!! (I have learned a few things over the years, TH!!)


Ahh!! The first birds are up singing!!

I'm making a June/July lotto block, now that Michelle has kindly taken over moderating! Plus grooming our dogs, cleaning the oven and other not so fun stuff.

I guess you can tell I have company coming in about a week!

I am in Ellicottville, NY for the weekend without a sewing machine and I didn't bring any handwork either. I did however go shopping in Amish country of Western NY. I bought 108" wide backing fabric for 5.25 a yard and 45" quilting cottons for 2.99 a yard! I will have to wash everything because their shops are on their farms. I wish I had bought more. I hope to get a couple of blocks made when I get home tomorrow.

Have a great weekend everyone

Thanks for the encouragement Donna. I did quilt quite a bit on Saturday, but unfortunately, I think I underestimated how long this is going to take me - definitely more than one or two weekends. Oh well, if I keep at it, eventually I'll finish, and then I'll post a picture.

Sunday I spent some time pawing through my stash for batiks for a new quilt. A friend wants me to make her other daughter a quilt - after I made DD#1 a quilt a number of years ago. Evidently DD#2 has been pestering her mom for "her" quilt! I think I have enough batiks for the blocks, but will need to get a background. I don't want to use WOW or white muslin - I think I want a light batik. I will be doing another Nickel Quilt from the newest book.
