Can't do the quick reply so I'll add here.  The countdown is on I have six more mini log cabin blocks to make then i can assemble!  Beth I'm still in denial on having to quit as i look at a application for life insurance though more often i 'm thinking of stopping.  I know I'd surely make DH happier by quitting  maybe it'll be easier now that my dr. hasput me on anti anxiety pres. but keep me filled on your progress.

Sukochi, It is so sweet of you to make her quilts. I know for a fact you can stack quilts as high as you can stack fabric, all the way to the ceiling.

 Carol, Love your afghan and quilt.

Michelle:

Roxana,  It's a pattern I got when Debbie-do and I were driving back from the Smoky Mountain retreat.  We stopped in alot of quilt shops on the way there and back!  I think this pattern was super quick to do and will be easy to make a bit larger.  It's called "This & That" patterns and this pattern is called Suzy's Sack. Only took 2 pieces of 7/12 x 7/12 for the bag and the lining then a piece for the handle and bind the top.  Very quick. I did this one just like the pattern, which also called for a small piece of batting and interfacing.  The interfacing is good, but not sure it really needed the batting.  I may try another without and see what that does.  

I thought I recognized that pattern!  Very nice outcome!

so far I haven't tackled any of the patterns I bought on our trip but I have finished off some of the projects I brought with me!

I just made denim & bandana curtains for a friend and will be making matching pillows over the weekend.  Hopefully my other machine will be back from the shop soon so I can start FMQing MQ8.  It's supposed to be for my friend's birthday in a few weeks.  I don't know if anyone remembers all the problems I was having with my machine shredding thread while I was FMQing but the tech thinks I probably have a burr on the needle plate or bobbin case (from breaking a needle)  that's causing the problem.  I sure hope he's right and can fix it!

Is, sounds like you are doing well on that log cabin.  Looking forward to seeing the quilt.

I am glad I never started smoking.  I don't have enough will power to quit something like that.  But thinking quitting and wanting to is half the battle.

I've never smoked, but as a hygienist I had to dis cuss smoking and the oral consequences.    My experience is that the more often you quit smoking, the more successful you are each time.   You learn what works for you and what doesn't.   so don't quit trying, you will eventually be successful.

I have begun working on a quilt from a pattern I bought during our sho hop at the Smoky Mtn Retreat. For a baby to be born in Nov,

As you can see it is made with strip of a jelly roll I am using Flirt by Sandy Gervias for Moda. Love this fabric.

I love this pattern.

No I am not working on any quilts right now.  Just finished up several for a quilt show here!  Plus my son just got married and made a triple irish chain for him and his bride!  I am a hand quilter and my fingers are sore and need to heal.

Nana, Gini, Weezee, Carolyn, Sukochi, Mimi-  Thank you all for the compliments on the baby afghan and quilt!  Mimi, DGD2 will definitely be spoiled, especially by her big sister who is 5 yrs old. Last year, when I asked her what she wanted for Christmas, she said she wanted a baby brother or sister. She is so excited now!

Sukochi, I can't wait to see your finished quilt with the Flirt fabric. I've been wanting to get some of that for something. I just don't know what I'll end up making with it. Maybe your quilt will inspire me!
