Pam,

I just finished making 6 flannel quilts in the Turning Twenty pattern for throws and two baby quilts. I just love some of these flannel and brushed fabrics at Connecting Threads. Thanks for sharing.

Heather Mulder Peterson on her new ruler called the "Triangler" which helps you created triangle designs that are normally paper pieced.
Nancy, is this anything like the Strip Tube Ruler we used for MQ9? I got nowhere with the Craftsy PP class, lol. It's on my ufo list ,but I easily overlook it.

I was home all day waiting for a refrigerator delivery that never came so I worked on the Craftsy 2012 BOM. I think I only have 1 block left to quilt. I haven't decided if I am going to quilt the sashing or border. This is the UFO I hope to complete this month so it is looking good.Oh yeah, the fridge, I called Lowe's and they said it was coming next Thursday, I said I told the clerk I was on vacation today and tomorrow. I will be at work next week. So, they are going to deliver it tomorrow morning. Messed up my schedule, but I won't complain if it actually gets here tomorrow.

Yes, Pat, Nancy B & I compared the two rulers at the Oregon retreat, and they are quite similar.  Heather's has some additional lines printed on that make lining up the odd angles quick and easy.  I think this is my fourth or fifth type of triangle ruler.  Sigh....

I am sighing right along with you, LOL.I think in order to be a quilter your middle name must be "I need". There are so many "I needs" in my quilting life. I love the tube ruler, but am prepared to love the next ruler as well. Unfortunately, my bank account doesn't always love these things. But hey, I'm on vacation today and can't go anywhere so I think I need to shop online for a vacation souvenir or two. ROFLOL! Thanks for the info.

Ginny, feel free to use my vacation frame of mind. I just ordered the ruler and book. It makes waiting on this fridge more fun. Although I have been working on my Craftsy 2012 BOM and am now quilting the sashing and border. Yea! I will actually finish a UFO on my vacation. I am excited since my stack of UFOs is pretty high.

Yep, Pat, I used your frame of mind and bought today's daily deal from Missouri Star Quilts and also their new magazine issue.  Didn't even wait for your permission, just jumped at it.  LOL   Ginny

I made it to the quilt store today.  Only needed some dark blue thread, and some velcro.  Came out with nearly 4 yards of fabric.  She had some batiks for sale at $6 per yard.  Found the perfect brown for the tree in the Garden Party quilt.  The brown was not on sale.

I actually did work on several quilts today.  Finished up several blocks for the Loyal Union Soldier sampler and then pulled out a bin with two bug quilts I haven't worked on in many years.  Started them when the grandsons were 5 and 7.  They are now 15 and 17 or thereabouts.  Had many of the blocks made but discovered I needed more to make twin quilts.  I  had additional ones cut so that is what I am going to get finished today.  Maybe then I'll have enough to put these quilts together.  I also hope to get to another UFO which needs a final row sewn on and then the border.  I am determined to get some of these UFOs finished this year so I can start new projects without feeling guilty.  (I have a pattern and fabrics sitting on the table for a Christmas table runner which I would like to get cut out tonight.)  Been working since early this morning and haven't even taken time to get dressed.

Pam:

I haven't thought about ordering flannels from Connecting Threads.  Those are pretty!  Have you been satisfied with the weight/thickness?  

Thanks for bringing them to our attention.

Wendy,  Your wall hanging is adorable, and the binding adds the right touch. 

Nancy, Im envious, too, of your quilt class. Looks like lots of fun. I love the blocks !  Oh, those rulers, it reminds me of  the( earrings to match an outfit ) the ruler to go with a project . 

Ramona, I like working on Flannel quilts, and the kids and adults, too, seem to like them . Its my gift of choice for a new baby, especially in Winter. 

I have been working on making my DD Christmas valances and table runner for her kitchen. And hopefully, when Im done I can get the binding on  Christmas Quilt for DH.  So many projects, so little time.    Susan

Managed to piece some border blocks for side 2's border for MQ9.  I might even get the borders completely on this weekend...but then again maybe not.  Breakfast out with the neighbors in the morning, and then birthday dinner for DD1 in the evening, but I'm going to try to get side 2 done before I go to bed tonight.
