I hear ya Judy! I just cut three baby quilts from my stash...well fresh stash as I have to make enough to cover all possibilities. None of the parents are finding out what they are having. I like the idea of waiting but that means that I need to make some for in case....

today I began my friend's birthday quilt. She turned 60 in August but it took me forever to get some of the fabrics she likes....kinda fussy even though I love her to bits. So I have one set of blocks done, the second set halfway done. I hope that by Friday I will have all of them done.

Awesome quilts, everyone.

Marsha, I read all that you do and I am feeling like a slacker. You inspire me to try to do more for myself. I am widowed, so a lot of what I have to do around my place is beyond my capabilities, but  there are things I am going to try.  I am younger than you by a little, and my health is good, except for my stupid shoulders,  so I should be able to do more than I have.

I did not work on a quilt today, too much other stuff to do.

I didn't work on a quilt, but I did quilt a bag I made of a walker. Still need to put Velcro on the straps. I'm going to keep this one. It is just a trial/ error, not sure if I want to make them with this type of strap or make straps that would be tied on.

One nice thing, it will be machine washable just like a quilt. Both sides have the same fabric.

nice bag weezee.  I'd go with the Velcro, less likely to become untied.  I know several people who could use something like this.

Nice idea weezee. When I had my first knee surgury I could have used one of those.

Weezee - that is cute, I had attempted to make one back when my DFIL was still alive for his walker but he's been gone almost 5 years so no idea where it is.  Yours with the velcro is much cuter.

Thank you , Patti, Bonita, Elizabeth, and Debbie. I could have used one when I had my foot surgery 2 years ago. I used the idea for Jenny- at MSQC she did a tutorial on making a bag with long handles. I just put on straps on the top and 2 on the sides to keep the bag from swinging. I'm going to try a wider bag  and put 3 straps on the top, that way the straps on the sides won't need too be so long.

I love seeng what everyone is working on.  The quilts on the last 4 pages that I've read are fantastic.  Angele, your quilt is lovely and colours are fantastic. Judy - I really like the corner treatment on your quilt.  And Kelley,  the dino quilt is darling as well as the Greek style blocks.  I made a walker bag last Christmas for a friend and I echo the "use velcro" folks.  Many people using walkers have arthritis and tying one on might be difficult.

I was determined to finish UFOs this month, and I"ve made good headway although none are completely finished, several are much closer than they were.  Then I read about the Iron Quilter challenge on MSQC.  <sigh>  The charm packs were so cheap, and although they have a lot of purple, I like pansies, and there are a lot of supporting colours that will work, and .... well, just "and".

I'm only going to post a four square piece of what I'm working with.  Except for the charm pack, I'm using everthing from my stash.  But I completely forgot to look at the coordinating fabrics in greyscale before I cut, so am not at all pleased with how prominent the purple is and how the green seems to fade into the background.  I might take the green off before I sew the squares back together and replace it with a darker one to help balance out the purple.  But then again, I might just keep it as is.  As a newbie quilter I have no illusions I will get enough votes to get into the finals, but I thought the challenge was a good idea anyway.  Plus it's taking me out of my comfort zone in working with the various colours of the charm pack.
