Welcome Marla!  I wish I had some of that energy you have, that's quite a list of quilts to be done by Christmas.  I haven't done much of anything this summer, the humidity saps my energy.   It's cool and dry here on the east coast today and I have 4 pillowcases to make so that's my goal for the day, at least 2 of them.  BTW, I love your quote!

Nope, 2 days without working on a quilt.  Yesterday met my cousin (who I hadn't seen in 19 years) and her family as they were driving through town,   We had breakfast together and then we all piled into vehicles (my cousin, her DH and my DH in one vehicle so we could visit) and her DD, DSIL and grandchildren (along with one of my grandchildren and headed off to Lake Tahoe where we spent the rest of the day.  By the time we got home it was almost 9 pm and we were beat from the drive and the heat.  Had a great day though.

Today after mowing the lawn and picking the tomatoes, I put dinner in the crock pot (boneless port chops), and currently have a batch of salsa getting ready to be canned.  I'm tired but there is no rest for this wicked old bird today...but I'll manage.

Tomorrow I had to DGS1 to the highschool for freshman orientation (maybe make a stop at the LQS since it is right down the street, and put up some dill pickles. 

But I promise to get on Marge's quilt...I think I've received all of the blocks now.

Everyone has been so busy.  The curtains and bags and quilts are amazing. I am in awe of how much everyone gets accomplished.  Just thought I'd share my third Jo Morton Club piece.  It's called Blueberry Muffins.  The small inner nine patches measure 2 1/4" with the center square being 3/4."  The entire piece measures 18 x 24 inches.  I will be making another one in reds and greens for the holidays.  Stay tuned for the next installment of Jo's Little Women.  It's called Arlington and has 45 two inch finished pinwheels.

Very pretty quilt.

All of you that did MQ8 could do these.   You have the skills now to work with those little pieces.  You completed 2"  9 patches in those blocks.   Actually they finished at 1 1/2 ins,   These little miniature quilts can be a lot of fun and hopefully all of you now realize that they are doable,

Oh, Nana, the MQ8 is still on my list of things to do. Life happened at the time of the Mystery and now I don't know that I can do it! It's still on the list though. I love the pattern (as well as the fabric I picked out!). You did a wonderful job. I have all my notes for when I get a chance to do it.

I know you can do it.   If you would like some help getting started cut your fabric and bring it to retreat with you and I will help you get started.   It really isn't hard to work with small pieces.  It just requires a little patience and slowing down a little when sewing.

Mimi, you and your minis amaze me.  I think they are full sized quilts, then I look at the dimensions.

Yes it is getting close to MQ time.   I have the pattern all planned out and am trying really hard to get the yardage figured out.   That is the hardest part for me....LOL>

That sounds like a plan! With Branson just ahead of my local Guild Retreat, I was wondering what I I might want to work on then. You've come up with a fantastic plan! Now, all I need on my list is getting it cut before the middle of February! That's doable! :-)
