I am not used to having nothing complete. If I started a project I did not start another one till I was complete.  I started quilting about 3 years ago and I can't seem to get anything done because I see something else I want to start.  Having said that, I am so greatful for the ladies in the LUS and Dear Jane groups because they have helped me so much that I have more confidence that I can do more.  I will be starting a new project in the next couple of days.  I am going to help someone from another site to make a purple heart quilt of valor and I will have to finish that one because she needs them right away.  If it was for everyone help here I would not have even attempted it.

Jeanette Kennedy Asiala:

I owe everyone an apology to.  I did not mean anything by the comments except to say I was happy with everyones progress.  I did mean to upset or offend anyone.

Don't fret Jeanette. I'm sure no one was offended. 'Certainly not me. ! :) 

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

Had a lot of chores to do today but I did get the backing for MQ6 washed and ironed. 

Yesterday I pulled out an old UFO (4-5 years since I worked on it) and discovered I only had 2 more blocks to make.  I got one done and hoping to get the second one done tonight.   Hark!  there is the slightest  possibility that I might get this one completed before I get bored with it again.

Well I cut, sewed and pressed the binding for MQ9, but that's as far as I have gotten.  I do plan on getting the front sewed on by machine tonight, maybe.

Oh, and while searching for some fabric to bind the MQ9 with, I stumbled across two more UFO's that need to be quilted.  Oh my, that's 20 now.

Does anyone here make doll quilts??  I've got quite a collection started of tiny HST that are products of my leaders and enders in an effort to use up some of my small scraps.  I don't know what I would ever do with them, but they certainly would work for a doll quilt.  Unfortunately, I don't have any little girls around to make one for...so if anyone is interested, I'd be glad to send them to you...They measure about 1.5" - 1.75" unfinished.

Also looking for someone who has a "Mini Ten" wedge ruler (made by Phillips Fiber Art).  I have a pattern for a table topper I want to make that uses the mini ten.  I have a ten degree wedge, but it's not the mini....and I need to know where the 45 degree angles fall when you trace them from the packaging.  Can anyone help??

 

So inspired by everyone's work they've been posting...If my grandson saw the starship quilt he would want one too! LOL!  Agnes, your embroidery is wonderful - love the whole quilt!

I have been reading all the comments here and admiring everyone's work. It has been awhile since I've made anything myself, just getting back to the sewing room after having the cast removed from my ankle. Everyone's work is fabulous! I love all of it. I've been working on making quilts for my late boyfriend's family members from his shirts. I have the top completed for his nephew's and am working on a quilt for his mom. Also in the works are quilts for twin girl cousins due in the beginning of June. These babies are the great-grandchildren of my cousin.

I did finally finish a gift for a not-so-secret-Santa. Since she has received it, I can post a picture of it now. My first attempt at FMQ and that's only because my Statler is needing some work to get the power to go through the controller. Here's the gift, a quilted clock:

 

It's 12-inch square. I did remove some of the dark washer in the very center after taking this photo. I have the pieces ready to make one for myself, for in my sewing room. Totally different fabrics for that one. I'll post it when it's done, probably sometime about two years from now!

Carol, what a unique quilt! I never would have thought of making a clock. It's beautiful.

This is a great idea and I love how you did it!  I may steal your idea.  I have been looking for a unique clock for my redecorated sewing room.  A quilted clock would really fit right in.  Thank you for sharing.  Looking forward to your next one.

Well here is the quilt that was giving me fits last week - ready for quilting and binding.  However, the learning curve was worth it.  The second photo shows the first 2 blocks of the next kaleidoscope quilt and they are FLAT and nearly perfect! YAY!

Diane, your quilt and blocks look great. How wonderful that you learned so quickly!

Carol, I too love your clock. My sewing room is green and could use a bright yellow clock because the one I had in there just died. Hint, hit, roflol.
