I am getting this up and going to announce that I am going to hand quilt my King Size Hawaiian quilt this year. The applique work is finally done. Need to baste together the back, batthing and front and I will be good to go.

First though, I am going to finish the baby quilt before January 4th.

What are your quilting plans for 2011?

So glad that you are joining us Calimom!! I started quilting over 40 years ago by making a patchwork quilt - you could even start out by making a patchwork potholder!!

Glad you joined us calimomx2.
Sure, come on in, you don't have to quilt to come in and be sociable.

I hope to get some things finished that I started.....or talked about starting....last year.

I ventured down to look at my cutting table today.......and turned around and left........it is covered again!! :yikes: And I had it pretty much UNcovered when I made the hats....AARRRGGHHH!!

Storms coming in.........so I will get there......but have to prepare for the storms for a day or two.

I thought I had already replied to this post, but don't see it.
Anyway, I am in.
I hope to get 3 quilts done for next Xmas.
Not sure what else I'll be working on yet.:spool:

Frugal Me - we have a quilting club and a quilting challenge - two different threads that will probably be followed by the same people interested in quilting.

For me, the difference is that the quilting challenge will be reflecting personal quilting goals that quilters will set for themselves. The quilting club will a place to share all things quilting. Example FF has gone to quilting shows and shared pictures that she takes and I always want to see more!!

Once upon a time I made a few quilt squares. I hope to learn more this year and to actually make something besides just squares.

I already checked out some books from the library that had some cute patterns. :cheer4:

I'm in. I'm still working on finishing a quilt that was supposed to be done for Christmas!! I showed it to my aunt, so she would know what I got her, but I had to take it back to finish it!! I'm hand quilting it and it's about halfway done.

Joining in to make a quilt for my first grandbaby due in July! I am keeping my eyes open for fabric that has blueberries on it. I will probably make a Warm wishes quilt. A free pattern on the internet.
Pattern: Warm Wishes bed size | Quiltmaker

piney

Cute pattern pinecone.

I think I have seen blueberries at keepsakequilting.com and you might also try hancocksofpaducah.com ( I think it is).......

Will be waiting for pics........:tay:

I'm cutting flannel squares from old flannel shirts for a rag quilt. It may be a while before I'm done this one. I want to start cutting the pockets off old jeans and make a hanging quilt for my grandson. That way when he comes over his smaller toys can be stored in the pockets. (Parker is 9 months and loves putting things in boxes and pockets and taking them back out again.) When he is older we can store art supplies and card games.

Have part of the log cabin ready to go with the few squares of kaleidescope....(purple and white with a lilac {plant} print)...........just have to decide how I am going to put them together.

Will have to dig through some mags. for inspiration. Have the fabric I want to use.....hope it is enough.
