That is a really neat quilt.  I love the bay window effect.

Nancy, That's a beautiful panel. I have this photo filed away for inspiration someday when I find a wonderful panel. Unfortunately I don't know who to give the credit to for this quilt.

Wow - Somebody really did a great job with that bay window quilt!

Yes, a little.  I've cut, folded, pressed, and sewed the binding on MQ6...I'll do the hand sewing during the boys TaeKwonDo classes.  I've also been trying to decide on a center block for RR4, but must admit that I don't feel too imaginative today.  I'm going to run to the LQS after we go get our haircut and make a stop at Lowe's to find the perfect backing fabric for Marge's quilt...I think this month I could use longer days or maybe more days in a week.  I never thought that when I retired I would be pressed for time.

MNNancy- that's a great panel scene. It'd work well as a window quilt!
I had some white birch bark fabric (about 1/8 yd.) I dug out and thought it'd be perfect for the frames... I got it at Fabric Depot I think- or Quilter's Cove Newport OR.

What do you think?

Pam, I like your white birch bark fabric, try saying that three times.

Jacy, the bay window is beautiful.

Jacy, that's similar to what I'm going to do with my tree panel, but not with the angled bay window.  As I said, though, due to my goof, I now have a seam through one of the window panes, so I hope it won't be very noticeable after quilting.

Today it is so smoky here from all of the fires around us, that it will be a good day to just stay in the house and quilt.  My plans are to put the borders on Marge's quilt and maybe get it loaded on the frame, construct the center for RR4, and work on hand sewing the binding on my MQ6.  I really want to get this one finished before starting MQ9.  That's my plan and I hope I can stick to it.

Bay window quilt is just too amazing.

I saw the Jenny Doan tutorial on binding this a.m. spotted one two things I do wrong.

The baby quilt is not looking as great as I though it would. Will keep trucking. Probably don't get the full effect with just seeing one row done. At least I hope so. Have a back up quilt top if need be. 

Think I will take a break from it and do an easy table runner pattern I saw a picture of on my Facebook wall today.

Have a question. Might cause a firestorm, but just don't understand. When you put a quilt out there for public display, why is it wrong to duplicate that design yourself? Haven't we all seen quilts and then did one ourselves and not bought a pattern or requested permission from the owner? If you put a personal design out there for the public to see, and you don't want it copied (and if the person uses another fabric, it is NOT an  exact cop)", then do not put it on display for anyone to see. When you gift a quilt and that person decides to make one, isn't that the same thing? If you gift that quilt, the pattern you designed  becomes the property of the person you gave it to, do it not? I have seen pictures of applique design, that I have copied. As long at it is not for public sale by me, it should not be a problem.  I don't benefit financially.  Just trying to understand this logic.

I need some help with a quilt I plan on making and probably sorry I tried.  :  )  My grandsons significant other found this pattern online that she and DGS loved called "Modern Day Diamonds" from the "Threaded Pear" quilt shop.  It came with templates but I would like to strip piece and then cut the angles.  Any and all advice would be appreciated.
