Mimi:

Thanks for sharing your quilting design, Mimi!  My MQ is next to go on the frame, but I was unsure what quilting design to use.  Nice job!

waiting for the dreaded binding.
hey Kris, I'll make a deal with you. I'll send you my quilt tops so you can quilt them and you send me your quilts and I will bind them.  LOL

Angele:
I wish I had your wisdom Granny Agnes and take a break every 60 min or so.

The wisdom came after i had spent months and years on manipulative treatments. When I was dealing with my hands it was 15 minutes work with 15 minutes break to start and only a few times a day. It's amazing how I had been flat out both with my back and hands before I learned this wisdom. Never plan to go there again so I take preventive measures. I packed all  my hand work away in Feb 2006 and brought it out for trial runs every six months. At 18 months I could finally keep it out.. I set myself a two year limit. The only thing i can't do that I did previously and it was the culprit in the end was hand quilting.

Mimi, your MQ5 is absolutely fabulous!  The black background pops all those colors and the border fabric is awesome, may I ask where you got it?

Mimi--Lovely quilt and great quilting. Love that design but then why wouldn't I as variations of that are my go-to design.

Tomorrow is our monthly "Quilts from the Bluffs" quilt day.  We will be making Rag Quilts as many have not ever done one.  At least when they are done, they are done!  Shouldn't add any unfinished quilt tops to my backlog to be quilted.  I have several quilters focused on finishing quilts, too, so we should start seeing some progress soon.  Love quilt days with my group!!

Sounds good Wendy but I'm not sure you'll be OK with my turn around time.

Well my January mini quilt finally arrived. I'll be cutting the pieces after I have dinner and when I get home from work I'll prepare the background. I'm also working on the current block for the appliqué group BOM.

Thank you Ginny.  I'm hopeful the in-laws will use it in good health for many years to come.

Thanks for your kind words, Marie.  To tell you the truth, the border was an older fabric I had in my stash. Most likely it was from my LQS before it closed, (sad face) or fabric.com   Sometimes when I see a fabric that really catches my eye I buy it but don't know where I'm going to use it.  Nobody else does that do they?  LOL  I like fabric that has most of the rainbow colors in it.  It keeps my eye moving.

Thanks Granny.  That's high praise coming from you.  Soli Deo Gloria.  I love to put that design in.  Really catches the eye.

Meredith, my 5 yr old granddaughter was so cute picking out the name.  She even wrote me a note so I wouldn't forget it.  Thanks for your kind words, Leslie.
