Bonnie - Beautiful Drunkards Path! Love the colors!
Gini - Awesome Angels! So glad you found the cord so you could post the picture!
I got the last row of the kaleidoscope on yesterday. After I get my border(s) on, I'll post another picture. Every time I look at it, I'm amazed at what the fabric created...(cause it sure as heck weren't me - LOL!).
Can't wait to see the picture, Sheila! Stack 'n Whacks are fun!

Sheila, I am looking for instructions for a kaleidoscope. Do you have any or did you just do it on your own???
I finished sewing the binding and label on a baby quilt today. Feels so good to have something finished. It's made with the MQ6 pattern (enjoyed that so much I decided to do it again - only smaller).
Now to move on to completing the binding on my king size sampler made with the 2011 Fall Swap fabrics.

Thanks Gini! Here's another one - I finished this top on Saturday. It was done as a mystery with my group I lead. I am pleased with how it turned out.
Well after virtually doing no sewing for the past two months, today (after my husband's VA appt for a colonoscopy), I sat down and began the baby quilt for my grandson that is due in the next week or so. Almost got the blocks all made and sewn together. Now to decide on the borders and binding. I really do dislike working with flannel...have to clean the machine too often, but daughter insists that flannel makes better baby quilts. This is the second one I've started for this baby. I made all of the blocks for the other one and then decided I really didn't like it. I think I will just sew it together, put on borders, quilt it and donate it.
Sukochi, I really, really will get to your block soon, and Pat and Leslie, I haven't forgotten your mailbox surprises, just haven't had time to go shopping, package them up and get them to the Post Office. Hopefully, I can get that done this week.
Today I finished my son's quilt. It really doesn't look much different now than when I draped just the top over my bed. It measures just under 100" x 100", 2 layers of fleece and one layer of batting. He wants to be warm! I was allowed to work in the fellowship hall at church and I put in about 9 hours. Having all those tables to spread out on was such a treat! Note to self: NO MORE BIG FLEECE QUILTS! I sewed it R-S-T then turned it right side out, top stitched the edges and created some memory stitches on my machine to tack down the center of each black square and the spot where the 4 beige rectangles meet to meet the maximum requirements of the batting. The back is solid brown (all to my DS specifications) He WILL be warm! I'm so glad it is done! On to the next project!

Here it is!!
This is MQ 6. I worked on it from start to finish without working on anything else. It is also the first big quilt that I have home machine quilted. I used my new Janome 1600p-DBX. I love it.
Carol, I too did the mq6 and love it. I am gonna do a baby quilt in it also, but I am gonna use baby material. I think it will look great too. I am glad to see it to know that I need 10 of each block for the baby quilt. thanks for the help.
Carol, I love this quilt. Any chance on getting the pattern??????
Thank you Sheila! I really appreciate all the wonderful comments.
What a lovely quilt. I am sure he will love it! That is a great pattern. Manly yes, but women like it too!
