There's a chance it might be done in time for Christmas.

Christmas 2021?  :-)

I think it is really a great idea to make sure Marion has approved of the quilt. I do that with my girls too. I would rather know they are excited about something they know I am making for them than find they don't care for something I would make as a surprise.

Sarah has helped herself to quite a few quilts. When I see them in her house I am very glad she loves them and uses them.

Well for any of the rest of us 2021. For Dee I bet it done way ahead of Christmas 2020

nope, the one in 6 weeks.  The top will probably be finished before I go to bed tonight and on the frame tomorrow.     maybe blush  I might wait until after Thanksgiving because we have house guests that will be using that room and I can't leave a loaded quilt on the frame - not enough room to squeeze by to the bathroom.

I finished my second "House Arrest" scrappy quilt today. I'm  kinda burned out with random scrappy work for the time being and while it was pleasant doing pantograph work on this quilt (much easier on the thumb .... one tap and away we go for each row) I will now focus on another form of quilting. This was the first time I used Quilter's Dream batting and I was delighted with how it really "poufed up" after a trip through the washer and dryer with this stipple quilting.  Of course, it probably does not show up well in the photo.  I flopped the quilt over the washer and dryer to try to get the texture to show ....

Next on my agenda will be "Vicious Circles", a 40" x 40" wall hanging designed by Karen K. Stone. I found a set of her foundation papers on eBay and so once I find the fabrics in "Dee colors" of darkish red and tans and beiges and creams I will be good to go. wink  I have never done a red and white quilt and this will be my version of such a project.

I love your string quilt Judy. Looks like just the thing to curl up under and have a cup of tea on the sofa.

wow...that is a lovely quilt!

I had a thought the other day about you and your thumb...could you get the button that you need to push moved to the OTHER handle?

love having two serving baggies of soup "on the ready".  I do the same with pasta dishes too

I do the same thing.  My mom taught me that if you are going to make a mess making a casserole, you might as well make two or three extras.  I do the same with soups and chili. It is so nice to just grab something out of the freezer when you just don't feel like cooking.

That amazing quilt just gets better every day! So beautiful!  I'm impressed at how fast it is going.

Oh, Judy-- I love your bright and scrappy string quilt and the quilting looks great!  There are so many things you can do with strings and I really like the layout that you used.  What is the destination of this lovely quilt?
