    What are you working on now?

    I haven't been able to sew much for the past week or two. Finally finished piecing my top for Quilts for Kids. Got it layered and started quilting it today after Paige went back to Rutgers.

    I feel like my quilting is a little rusty and wish I had warmed up more before starting on the quilt itself. I did big looping concentric circles in the middle of the quilt, now filling in all the sides, corners, etc. It's going quickly and it's a small quilt.

    I'd love to see what others are working on!

    I finished a "scrappy" baby quilt from some left over fabric. I stippled it--I getting a little more confident with it. I also started a baby version of "Summer in the Park". I'm using yardage instead of jelly rolls. I'm having a time with it--flipping the ruler--thinking those revolving mats might come in handy. Later tonight though--it's BASKETBALL--GO BIG BLUE!!

      I'm planning a table runner using wonky waves of blue, teal and beige as a rememberance of our vacation in Florida. Also have a tote bag in the works.

          You have done a great job rusty or not. It will come back.

              Did the second BOM for my local quilt guild this morning: Second Block BOM.JPG

              I am not trusted with pointy things.

              BTW this block was designed by the male quilter in our QG. He has twelve different blocks - this is the first one. DH decided this would be 'his' quilt (great with me - at least it will remain in our home) and chose the colors (although not the actual fabric). The first block I made was 'off' and I had reversed the red and gray fabrics. Like the red in the center more.
              Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                  I put the binding on a quilt and made a table runner.

                    I'm finally working on putting my dresden plates together.

                    Debbie I think the quilt looks so cute. Also like how your quilting makes the monkeys look like they're swinging on some of them.

                      Sandy, love that block. It looks really hard; lots of pieces. Great job. I like your DH's choice of colors.

                        I just finished my first pieced quilt top - and now it needs to be quilted. I am taking a FM class this coming Saturday, but I think I am too afraid of messing up the quilt to do it. Maybe I will start with something very small, like a potholder or something. If I ruined that beautiful quilt after the hours of piecing I would have to cry.

                          I'm working on getting my sewing room back in order........you wouldn't believe the fabric I keep coming across.....it seems to be growing in there. I worked on a dresden plate I've been playing with. One of those just practice thingees. And I finished a table runner today. All in all I think I'm making some progress. Unless I find more fabric. I may have to come back in another life to use all of it!!!! And I see so much more I love. Helpppppppppppp. There must be a 12 step program that will help.

                              Deb, really like what you are doing
                              Sandy, love that block. Little pointy things are my challenge.
