Are you quilting this weekend? Sept. 24/25

We are doggy sitting our grand-dog while our DD & SIL go to Jamaica for a week. I am working on the DWR and can FINALLY see light at the end of the tunnel. I have all 72 blocks finished and am joining them into rows of three and then into (6)sections of twelve blocks. I have one section finished and another almost done. I hope to get most of it together this weekend.
What are you quilting this weekend?

I am sewing a little- I worked on the Snow Globe quilt I am making this morning.
I plan to finish piecing it at the Retreat, but I want to decide what I am doing for borders before I get there, so I'm not wasting my valuable time thinking :).

I would also like to start cutting out another 9Patch Pizzazz, again, so I have some direction for sewing at Retreat.

Have fun doggie sitting!

I need to get organized-does that count???

I pulled out my BD blocks from last year to which I've added enough to make a total of 20. Arranged them last night and sewed the first two vertical rows together this morning. Will probably sew on it later on today and tomorrow. I plan to donate it to my family church in Michigan for an auction. This evening, we plan to attend the high school band performance after their practice that DGD is in....cannot believe this is her senior year!

SEW?? What's that? I feel like all I have done this weekend is work on winterizing the RV, yard work, picking raspberries, and staining a new door.

I did go to the fabric store this morning and got a jelly roll for the retreat and a couple fat quarters to test colors before I buy enough for the quilt I plan on working on at the retreat. I borrowed a tote bag for my sewing machine but think it is too big ... back to my original plan!

I am hoping once I get done with dinner I will have time to try a test block with the new fat quarters.

I'm in an RV this weekend and could have brought the featherweight but didn't. I spent the day at the Jacksonville quilt show and had a blast.

The blue/tan depression block top is done, the backing is prepared, but it doesn't need to be done until early next year. It does look good, but my eyes need a change! I'm so tired of those fabrics for the moment, that I can't even think of loading it on the frame.

So I have started to cut out a 30's repro/white pinwheel quilt. It's all equilateral triangles. I'm liking it so far.

Big family adventure today and I'm exhausted!

I desperately need time in my sewing room, but not sure I'm gonna get it this weekend... :(

No quilting for me. Maybe tomorrow night. Working on an Irish Chain quilt for my daughter. Need to have it finished by October 26. Don't think I'll get it done. I need to add the three borders and quilt them. So much to do and so little time...
