Diane, You quilt, tote bag and pillows are beautiful.
Yes. Just finished cutting strips. Very excited. Looking forward to making the panels.
Here's what I've been working on the last few days. My 11yr old DS decided his book project was going to be a wall hanging of a picture in his assigned book, they were assigned a folktale this month. We had fun doing it and I hastily took a photo of it before he took it out the door to school. It wasn't quite finished but he was anxious to show his teacher.
From the book East of the Sun and West of the Moon by Mercer Mayer.
Is that raw edge appliqué? It is so amazing.
And yes it's raw edge applique, and not even stitched down yet.
I've been working on mug rugs and on gifts for the retreat. I saw this on Pinterest, uses 2 10" squares and batting. they are coming out so cute and best of all, ladiues, I'm using up my bigger scrap pieces. Oh, I do hope everyone will like them, they are so cute. OK, Ok, no more hints!

I love it. I'd post a photo of my new assistant but she gets dizzy upside down.
See she has to lay down. On my quilt. That I was trying to load.
ok, Diane - quilt, pillows and tote bag are all very cute and I like the yellow.
Jacy - what a unique idea and it is very nice. can't blame him for wanting to show it off.
Patti - love your quilt, especially the middle section. did you use a pattern or just something you thought of?
now, who did I miss?
Brenda Jarrett:Finally I have finished the top of my Mystery Quilt #9. I still need to
quilt it. I know better late than never.
I really like your colors - yellow for sunshine and blue for the night sky. Your print contrasts perfectly with both of them. My comment is also "better late than never". My internet went down last week and the computer nearly died on me. After playing around with it, I finally got the computer to boot to diagnostics a few days ago and after running it through that process several times (hours and hours each time), I finally succeeded in triggering something to get things going again. Don't ask me what I did, but something woke the miserable thing up. I think it is time to retire this antique and get a new computer. I would hate to lose all the thousands of pictures and quilt patterns I have on it. I guess it is time to back-up more than a few patterns that I saved a few years ago. After playing some more, I got the internet going again - some of the problem may have been our poor cell-phone signals and the storms that refuse to let us alone. Our internet connection is a USB modem with it's own cell phone number!

Patti, great quilt.
I finished quilting the red/white/black quilt, and have it off of the frame. There are a lot of mistakes in it, but it is done (except for the binding) and that is better than perfect. One UFO done (although it has not been over 6 months since I worked on it last), it was left at the stage it was when I left the Oregon Retreat until this week. Several other projects were finished and started since I last worked on this one, so to me it was a UFO. That's 2 of 30 tops quilted this month. If I can keep this up, maybe I can clean up all of the UFO's.
Diane, and Jacy your projects looks wonderful.
Vivian, your new assistant is very pretty, even upside down.
Karla, keep up the good work.
Jacy, this is stunning.
Debbie, I am looking forward to seeing your mug rugs. Are they quick to do? I am looking for projects that are quick and easy to do for gifts.
