    I had one quilt this year I decided I didn't like and I gave it to one of the local guilds that makes charity quilts. They can do whatever they want with the blocks, I expect it will end up as a couple of smaller quilts for kids.

    The first really large size quilt I ever made is sitting in a box in the garage, half hand-quilted and probably will never be finished. I thought it was cute at the time, it's all pastel pinks and bunny prints, but I was over that 20 years ago.

    Right now I am concentrating on the quilts I *want* to make.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Great job FM!! I like what you did with the borders..........looks nice!

    I got one back from the quilter yesterday. It was a VERY PLAIN one that I posted on here ages ago......a flannel 'faux rail fence' (had black borders).......and I decided to try something that, I think, ended up nice. I had it quilted with BLACK THREAD to add some pizzazz to an otherwise boring quilt. It is a quilt that had a good quality flannel so didn't want to waste it by not finishing it........which I had thought about.

    Frugal Me - love the quilt!

    Until last week I had not sewn one stitch this past year. I've been working full time and college part time trying to finish a Masters degree. Anywho, I started a quilt 2 years ago while I was in Alaska visiting my sister. When we get together we learn a new quilting skill this time it was batiking. She also taught me how to do paper piecing and I taught her how to use inks. Last week I finished sewing the last of the blocks. The moose were batiked, houses paper pieced and most of the trees were batiked. I ran out of the batiked trees so I inked the last few. All the blocks are still hanging on my design wall. They need trimmed before I can start sewing them together. It's very busy looking but I love the memories I already have in it and it isn't even finished yet. To me that is one of the best things about quilts - all the memories and love they have in them,

    Alaska, those are great blocks. I love how you brought the batiks and the moose prints together. It's going to be very cozy when it's done, I can tell already.
