What Are You Working On Now?   General Discussion

thanks Suze.  the 2nd & 3rd ones were the same blocks.  it is one of those patterns that you make two blocks, cut them diagonal and sew together, giving two identical blocks.  So rather than have duplicates in one quilt, I made enough blocks for 2 quilts, but changed the layout.  I liked that middle one best also, but the rest of the room voted for the zigzag one.

thanks.  I tend to get "on a roll".  I started cutting and the next thing I knew I had 10 kits.  I still have 4 more ready to sew, but I need to shift to other projects.  I have to get my 40 hours of continuing education before the end of August - GOT to get going on that.  Plus I've been asked to quilt the donation quilt for the bee I joined last fall but haven't been able to attend due to work.  The person in charge of the bee usually quilts them, but she's been in the hospital with CDif (or however it's spelled).  She's home now but after 20 days she's very behind on her business, so I agreed to quilt it.  Since I wasn't able to contribute any time to making the quilt, I figure it gets me "even".   It's a 30's style, nicely done.  The guild has a show every other year, then a raffle on the others.  So what the bee has traditionally done is put a quilt in the show, then donate it for the raffle the following year.  This one is large (90" square) and I'm sure it will be popular.

House/Dog sitting so only brought easy sew projects.  My 3.5" HST.  Decided to make one block from that HST chart with the darn things.  AND forgot my iron so I had to revert back to my childhood helping grandma iron.. Cast Iron on the Potbellied Stove. Thankfully today I didn't have to make a fire, as gas and a skillet worked just fine.  LOL  Necessity is the mother of invention.  If there's a will, there's a way.   Worked fine.. but SO happy electricity is now popular.

I love al of you bright and cheery quilts!  I also like how when you hover over the picture, it gives you the option to "pin" it.  How cool is that?

thanks Lynne - we have a lot of "cross pollination" between us, don't we!  I don't have the option to pin, might be the version of the forum I use.  But that would explain my I periodically see one of my own quilts on Pinterest.  I still remember running across one and thinking hmm, that looks a lot like one of my quilts.  When I looked at the name, it said "Dee's quilt" - haha.

I've met a lady at one of the guilds that is crazy for novelties, we are having fun sharing patterns.  And one of the ladies at the guild wants me to take her entire novelty stash - I haven't seen it yet.  Hopefully there isn't too much pastel, but if there is I can donate to the other guild.  One of the advantages of being in two guilds that don't have a lot of overlap. smile

Very cute quilt for your granddaughter.  Did she love it?  The rows of birds and wagons are my favorites.

All your kit prep paid off.  You sure got a lot done.  Hope you had time for fun and talking too.

Taking advantage of today as the forum is allowing me to post.  I've been working on completing the many quilt tops that were hanging in my closet.  Carrie has been slowly quilting them as they have no due date and then I bind and label them.  I don't call them done until the label is on.  Here are 3 recently DONE.

Most of you will have seen this top as most of you thoughtfully contributed blocks to it.  It is such a special quilt to me that it took a while to make the label.  I love it.  Tje name of this one is "Healing Hearts".

The next one is just a quick Christmas panel.

and finally a log cabin made of Thimbleberries scraps.  The logs are 1 1/2 inch.  Some of the blocks jump out at you.
