  • Re: Are You Ready For MQ 6?

    Well, more late night quilting. Glad to see that I had the layout correct. Just finished putting the top together except for the border. I'll work on that this weekend. It's a beautiful quilt, thanks Sandy and everyone else involved including the Missouri Star Quilt Company. Had to re-press a lot of seams to get them to line up, but it was a

    Joy, Google is a wonderful Thing! I looked it up and Melbourne is 14 hours ahead of New York. If they post at 12:01am New York time, that would be about 2pm on Saturday your time. We'll see if my calculations are correct. Good Luck!

    Didash, Of course I'm up, it's only 11pm here in CA! I already put half my quilt top together. Couldn't wait for the reveal because I think I have it figured out, and if I'm wrong, it's OK because I love how it's coming out! Tonight I'm actually making out the new work schedule for the x-ray techs where I work. I have to

    Didash, I just bought the fabric to make this quilt. It's called Salmon Run. I don't think you can get much more masculine than this! There is a kit available here Salmon Run but there's only one that I saw. The pattern is free on the Fons and Porter website. Here's the link to the free pattern.

    Well, it's 2:45am, but I got all my Step 5 blocks done and all my blocks have been squared up. Pretty sure I know how it's going to go together, and I think it's gonna be awesome. I want to sew it together now, but will wait until the reveal on Friday. Any of you out there late night quilters? I find I do some of my best work when the rest

    Only about half way through Step 5, but they'll be done by tonight. I'm pretty happy with the fabric choice. I wasn't sure there for awhile. Here's a sampling of my blocks. Anxious to get this thing sewn together after Friday.

    Tweety, You should have had 96 blocks completed from Step 2. When you sew 4 of those blocks together, you would end up with 24 blocks. Did you not have enough to finish Step 2? Depending on how short you are, you might be able to just "downsize" the quilt. So instead of making it 6 blocks by 8 blocks, you could just do 6 blocks by 6 blocks

    Brenda, I think your fabrics colors are great. I just wanted to offer a word of warning though about your striped fabrics. You'll find out in many of the steps that these squares will be cut in half on a diagonal line. That means that your stripes could end up going in directions that you don't want if you are trying to keep them all going in

    Jeanine, that is awesome! I'm going to use that when people ask me why I'm starting something new when I have other projects that aren't done yet! Thanks.

    Step 4 completed. Have a few days to catch up on other projects. One thing I realize since joining this site... I'm not the only quilter that has multiple projects going at the same time! I thought I just had a hard time focusing, but if I do, so do a lot of you other quilters out there! Have a good week.
