Good post Ali, I would love another quilt along with this group

Comment by Ali Stanley on Wednesday

Rita, if I used all the leftover LL fabric for potholders, I'd have enough potholders to last the rest of my life and gifts to everyone I know! Maybe a table runner? Anyhow, it's been a serious stash-enhancing experience. I have spent the last two days off and on working on the sashing, and have one last step to go before I start assembling the top. My backing fabric is in the mail on final approach from CT, and I did take a day off to go sewing machine shopping. I'll have to play with the new machine a bit before doing the free motion quilting. What a fun project, though. I'm up for another quilt along...but won't start a year late this time.

Rita, I love it! Great inspiration for me to get it done! Thank you for that!

That sashing gonna take a while, but I can do it! Determination and perservirence will pay off!

Morning everyone! Man it's been a while since I posted here. I blame a long summer of yard work getting in the way of my quilting time.

Okay, I'm finishing this quilt top this week! I've procrastinated enough. It's been sitting in its project box in my sewing room too long. I think I left off on the last block. Hmmm, best go check it out today.

Sheila, I have leftover LL fabrics that I'd like to make something with as well.

Mari, are we doing another quilt along?

Load up the U-Haul and go east, Mari! I'd love to see you working at Connecting Threads East in Hermiston, as long as I get reserved parking in your lot! I've been shaking in my shoe (not a typo...quilters only have one shoe) over mitered border corners on a BOM project I'm doing with the local quilt shop, and it's nice to have conquered the fear on a smaller project. This LL quilt could very well be my show 'n tell for next month.

Oh, now, Mari...You're going to go and get us excited again, aren't you? I hope you're not using the leftover LL fabrics cause I'm using them up left & right on other stuff - like potholders, Vilma!!! LOL!

Ali, my sister lives in Hermiston so I know about your neck of the woods. I love, love, love that part of the country. I could so easily move there! So glad the directions for mitered corners worked for you! I hesitated putting that in the pattern but it is a good think to learn and when it's on a block the experience is much easier. I'm a Longarmer and I know quilting will take care of most anything! I'm glad you're not letting that hold you back!

Vilma! Oh, I'm so happy to read your post! And, SO happy your are almost finished with your project! Wahoo! Good for you! Check out what I said to Rita... In fact, there will be two running simultaneously...

Sheila! Good to see you here as well! Cool! Well, I SO know what you mean about procrastinating and other projects being pushed ahead. I have so many going now I don't know what to do first. Rarely get anything of my own done. That's why you never see anything from me except CT projects. Ugh!

Rita, actually, be watching cuz I have something up my sleeve that is very close to what your are suggesting for the new year...

Mari, are you planning another quilt along project?

Comment by Rita Crofoot on November 18, 2014 at 9:37pm

What fun to see you all  back here, Thanks Ali for stirring us up. We need to start something else, like pot holders with left overs. Just kidding

Comment by Ali Stanley on November 18, 2014 at 8:47pm

I just finished Block #4, Mari.  Thanks for the good directions, both in the pattern and on the quilt-along. I was worried about those mitered corners. While they're not perfect, they're an acceptable first effort.  And we all know that quilting cures almost everything, right? Onward!
