Barbara:
nice job on your pinwheel Polka.  Its fun to work on don't you agree

Very fun!  DH watched me sewing on the paper line and said, "Hey, that's cheating."  I laughed and told him it feels like a paint-by-number painting.  

I had less than an hour of free time for sewing today, but I am mostly done with the quadrant strips, so tomorrow maybe I can actually sew the blocks together so I can see how the top will look.

Barbara:
I have been working on my blocks for the VB retreat, have half of them finished

Are they pieced, appliqued, or embroidered?

Nancy, you did an awesome job on your paper piecing.  .  I love the colors you picked and I think this will be a wonderful block.  Will you make a quilt of it or just a pillow or a wall hanging?

I'm doing a crib size quilt. I'm following the advice of someone here in the club who suggested having one or two baby quilts on the ready for surprise announcements.

Well, DH is gone until Friday evening, so it should be a good time to get some quilting done.  In the evenings after work. 

This evening I pulled out the signature quilt from 3-4 years ago that I need to finish quilting.  I have about 1/3 of it done.  It's really big, so I decided I would work on a smaller one first.  The scrap quilt that is/was going to be my daughter's Christmas gift. (She didn't come home so I haven't given it to her yet.)  But then found out I needed to shrink the cotton batting.  So while that is happening, I really dig deep and pull out the quilt I promised my friend long, long ago.  So long ago she doesn't remember what it is going to look like.  Thought I would lay our what I have done on the table.  Not enough room.  Well, with DH gone maybe the queen bed. Take it upstairs, then remember I have my flannel design wall.  So I put up the main part.  I haven't added any of the blue triangles to the octagons yet.  I have an EQ5 pattern I did to give you an idea of what it is going to look like.  Not sure if I am going to do the border pictured on the pattern.  It does go good with it though.  This is so old, that these days I wouldn't have picked out some of the fabric I did.

This quilt is going to be stunning.  It seems to glow.  I love what you have done so far and just know that you will do the perfect border.

patti, this is going to be a pretty quilt.   and this is the problem with letting a quilt sit in the ufo pile too long.   when you get back to it, you don't like the colors as much as you remembered.

Thought you might enjoy this...

Très cool Cindy. I've seen the quilted ones but never one made of yarn. I would drive that car.
