Cindy - I love your Christmas tree wal hanging.  Now you are all ready for next Christmas and Jan. isn't even over yet.  I haven't got any UFO's that old --- but then I have only been quilting about 3 years. :o)

Jeanine - I like your bed runner.  I am sure he will be pleased and so will his wife.

Amber - what a nice bright and cheery bag.  Is it made from charms?

I like Gini's idea of the greens and purples.  I don't think shades of beige would do as much for your center motif.

Marie - get better quickly.  With all of the snow this week, you guys were right to postpone your Italian feast

Ugh!  I just finished my first (and last) extra long double fleece throw that was sewn together and not "knotted" all the way around.  What a pain in the b___ !  Static electricity, HEAVY,  black fuzz everywhere and it is such a new project that I can't even pass it off as a UFO and get another of Patti's great blocks.  Had to kneel on the kitchen floor to get the layers lined up.  Discovered real quick that I can no longer kneel on a hard floor without a LOT of padding under my poor little knees.  Used the drawer insert in my pulled out drawer to help support all of the bulk and it worked great.  I can see where it will be a big help when I quilt.

Happy Saturday everyone,

I love the tree quilt and the star bag! Both very pretty.  I also agree that using green & purple for the log cabin will really offset that beautiful block. (I'm not just saying that because pruple & green are my two favorite colors.) It sounds like it's UFO week around here. I'm a working on a UFO right now and getting a little frustrated. I'm trying to work out the....MATH......to resize the cable quilting motif around the sashing. I'm finding it very challenging. Ugh!! Whoever decided that math & quiltng should go together didn't understand quilter's. If they'd only told me I'd need math for quilting maybe I'd have paid more attention.

Marie,

I'm so sorry you've been sick.  Take your time with your recovery...you don't want a relapse.

All..Happy Saturday!

I finished this wall hanging this week.  A prior UFO, only 10 years on the waiting list.

Congrats on completing your UFO Cindy. It's very pretty.

I've been working on my Farmer's Wife Sampler since July and yesterday finished my 77th block.  There are 111 in the book, but I'm not going for the typical layout they show in the book.  I actually have more blocks done right now than I will need for the layout I am using.  I'm doing it in columns with setting triangles on each side of the on-point blocks.  I bought the fabric for the setting triangles and a border print to use for the sashing to separate the columns, but I had not considered that I would need to put a small border around each block to give it a more finished, refined kind of look.  I had to sit down and do the math this morning to determine what size to cut my setting triangles after I figured out the size I would cut the trim around the blocks.  Another issue was what color to use for these trim strips. 

I thought I had to go buy the fabric, but thanks to my stash, I found a good size piece of deep red  that I thought would be more than I would need.  I cut enough to do the blocks for one column and I really liked how it turned out.  The red looks great and makes the blocks stand out from the off-white seeded setting triangles, and the border print cut into 3" strips works really nice for the sashing between the columns.  I liked what I had done, so I proceeded to cut all the 1 1/2" strips from the red.  I started getting scared that I would not have enough.  I think I have less than 1 1/2" left... but I made it.   Now I have to put the rest together.

I won't wait until I have the whole quilt done... who knows how long that could take, but I will post a picture after I get a couple more columns done so it gives a better image of what I'm talking about here.

Wow! What you're doing sounds amazing. I can't wait to see a picture of it, finished or not. I hope you post those photos soon.

 I finally have the cable quilting motif nearly done.  Having to draw the intersections and have it match up was challenging. It's the first time I've tried something like this. I'm pretty pleased with it.

Granny M

I see Momma Dog is on the same supper time schedule as Ms Cricket- who wants hers at 4:30 pm and keeps inching that up due to her vet diet dog food- restriction. Low calorie -- she doesn't think it is too fun.

Hoping you get some relief from that cold.  Golden girls mtg sounds fun.

Had lunch w/ my "other mom" today and got the rest of the fabric for her GD baby quilt. That baby better be a girl, cause this quilt is all girl and PInk, pink, and lavender and pink and floral and all girly.

Take care and stay warm-
