I got the QWL #15 ready for mailing. This means I have 15 more to get finished.
My next project was to work on another QWL. I got QWL #16 quilted today. Need the binding sewn on and then I'll pass it on to Lena for the finishing touch.
I made binding for the 30's quilt, put away more fabric, and cleaned up the desk. Why does the desk always collect stuff???

I made this teacher tote. The PTC wanted to know if I could do tote bags, and I'd never done them, so I tried it and this is what I got.

First I finished quilting QWL #16 with a large meandering stitch. I have 14 more to go.
Then, I quilted the QOV #54. I ended up doing swirls for its quilting.
This means that I have finished all of Patty's quilts and can deliver them this week.
I have one more QOV here and I will be caught up on the QOVs in my possession.

This is what I got at the show.
No fabric for me.
I got some stuff to make a rug out of 1" strips of fabric. Maybe I can get some nice rugs in my kitchen now. I hope I bought the book that went with it. I got the Quilted cross book, and Strippin' Time book. I got some charms that have a pattern with it for a gift. (no, I'm not telling who it is for), a thread holder, a thread feeder, two small name tag "bags". a tea cup card, a waste basket, 5 towels for teachers, 2 earrings, a kep ring, a pin, fun socks for DD, a purse pattern, an embroidery disk, a Christmas ornament, 2 new Xblock rulers, and a seam ripper that is supposed to be easier to use.
I had fun, and was proud tht I didn't buy fabric for me.

I started to quilt the QWL and my thread is breaking. I am in NO mood to play with that tonight, so I think I'll shut down and try again tomorrow.
It probably is the needle, but it has been one of those days, so until tomorrow.

I loaded another QWL tonight. I need to clean and oil the machine, change the needle, change the thread from the variegated pink to a black thread. This is a darker quilt. LOL So, Maybe I will be able to quilt on this one tomorrow.
Oh, I cleaned on my sewing area, but the vacuum needs to be fixed. I think the belt on the brush broke. I don't have the umph to do it tonight, so maybe I'll talk DS into doing it tomorrow for me.

I put the corners on my feathered star. Now I need to quilt it and embellish it. Then I will be binding it in a dark blue.
Next, I played with the leftover 9 patches that I have been putting together. I wanted something different, so I tried the disappearing 9 patch process. This is what I got by using 9-patches in the 6",
9" and 12" sizes. Aren't they fun?
I also needed to make some bow ties for a love quilt. So, I pulled the 3.5" squares I had 4 of the same color and made them up. Seems I have lots of purple 3.5" squares. LOL Hope these are OK.
Wanda made 2 pillowcases and then was working on a strip pieced stained glass quilt. Can't wait to see how that one comes out.

I found out that the little quilting group I joined last month is meeting tomorrow. I was not sure, but got the call tonight. My to do listing is:
1. Ocean Waves -- I have leftover hst that I need to use. Most have a white background, so it is going to be white and colors. I have 8 done, and think I need at least 24 to make a decent sized quilt.
2. Disappearing 9-patch. I want to try this pattern out. I will use the leftover 9 patches I have been using as starter/enders and give it a try. I have 6", 9" and 12" 9 patches. I'm going to play and see what I come up with.
3. Continue to use the left over 9 patches for starter/enders.
4. Put the corners on my Feathered Star and make the backing for it.
5. Blue and White Christmas Quilt. Get some input on whether I need to add a small white border and then another blue border, or leave it the way it is. I also need to make the backing for this one.
6. Sew a label on a QOV and get it ready to mail.
7. Start the Paper pieced Future Heirlooms quilt. I need to get this done this month.
To much to finish, but I like to take all I can with me in case I get bored and need some help. LOL

I did put the backing together for the UFO round robin for DD. It is also loaded on the long arm.
I need to clean the machine, load the new thread -- I think I am using variegated pink for this. I will need to make multi-colored binding for it too. She had a hard time figuring out what color she wants, so she settled on lots of colors. I will use up some of my leftover bindings and if I need more, I'll use some of the leftover pieces from the quilt.
I'm hoping to quilt it tomorrow. Hope I feel better.

I have to share my geisha girl. LOL This is what she is going to be for Halloween. I think I need to figure out something for her hair, get some white makeup, gold sandles and some kind of oriental purse for her candy. LOL

I also looked at a mystery that Cindy is doing. I am having trouble figuring out which fabrics to choose for it. I really would like to have an idea of who it was going to before I started it, but I don't have a NEED right at this moment. I'm sure one will come up, but not a current need.

This QWL came home on Friday. One of the Karate Moms is helping me do the bindings. She wanted another one, and I had not done any quilting this past week, so I didn't have one for her.
