I finished most of this block on saturday at my guild sew day, and the rest last night. It's a replacement block for a quilt for me from a messed up one I received in a bee I did last year. I still need to make a few more replacements as well.  Roll Eyes



Also, this pattern is from Hunter's Design Studio, so you could possibly win this pattern this quarter!

texscrapper, you have no idea how jelly I am of your craftroom!  That's roughly how I'd like mine to look some day.  Smiley

Me too, I want to come live in there! Gorgeous!

Yay for a finish! It looks great, I think tshirt quilts are one of those scary things I'm not sure I'll ever want to attempt! Good for you for getting it done! Smiley

Monday Check In!

Hey all! Please check in by typing "Feb 8 Check In" and then answering/joining in with the check-in discussion question (you have through the end of the week/Sunday to be counted for this week's check in, but please put "Feb 8" for my tracking purposes).

Today's Discussion Question: Did you make any progress on your Feb quilting goal? Also, what's your sewing room/area/corner like? Do you have a dedicated space or do you move around the house to sew? Feel free to share pictures if you want/have some available.

Feb 8 Check In--I got my quilt top finished as well as backing made for it and purchased batting! Not sure when I'll be able to baste though. I used to have a small bedroom for my quilting area with a medium bedroom to sleep in, but last summer I moved into the larger master bedroom for both sleeping and my sewing room, so I have a table in the corner to sew on and bookcases/cubbies on two of the walls for storage. It's an ok setup for piecing, but for actual quilting there's not enough room so I'll probably have to just move my machine to the dining room table when I need to quilt.

I was going to ask if you ever made it to any Modern Quilt Guild meetings, AIMR! That's too bad that it wasn't  a more fun mix of people. My guild is stupid huge (for a chapter of the MQG, I know that traditional guilds in the area can be way bigger), in the 250 plus range of people I think, with around 160 attending a meeting, and of course with that many (mostly women) people in a group there's all kinds of tensions and cliques and gossipy crap, but I'm happy to have found "my people" within the larger group.

Your scrappy trip blocks are great AW! I agree, that background fabric is amazing!

I've got my guild Sew Day today, first Saturday of every month we meet at our local giant fabric store (one of the largest in the nation, but I grew up going there so didn't realize it was huge, just thought that's how fabric stores are!) and sew from 9 am to 9 pm. Sometimes I actually stay the whole 12 hours! We usually have about 60 people in and out during the day, so much fun! I'm going to work on a Boxcar Tote for my brother's girlfriend, it's a late Christmas gift, as well as my all solids BOM quilt from a few years ago, I think I just have 2 blocks left to make.

I forgot Mo Bedell! Love her.

Oh that's too bad about lack of longarmers! You could try checking with any local guilds if you haven't already, they'll probably have a list of longarmers they know.

Thanks for the close-ups!  You have some lovely fabrics there, loving the low-volume scrappy background as well.  Smiley


Yeah... it's a bit crazy!  Possibly that's the appeal, heh.  Heaven knows how I'd go about quilting it if I made it.

Quilt by checkbook! Smiley  heehee, I love sending out to a longarmer when it's a big one, I've only really done that once, although I've quilted a couple myself on a rented longarm.

I'm one of those people who would rather take the time to wrap my head around the math involved. I tend to overthink and therefor screw things up. So if the pattern isn't too expensive I'm just going to buy it.

I'm a total pattern and book junkie! I love collecting them and looking them over. Plus I've gotten quite a few fun patterns in goodie bags from various guild events. I think I've mentioned before how my guild is full of popular modern fabric and pattern designers as well as quilt book authors, and they're all very generous with donating when we have an event. ( Monica Solario-Snow, Elizabeth Hartman, Violet Craft, Sam Hunter, Susan Beal, Christina Cameli, Christina Lane, Melissa Lunden, Katie Blakesley (although she just moved away Sad  ), Bill Volckening, Jen Bailly, Teresa Coates and probably some more I'm forgetting). I love my guild! Cheesy ETA: and Mo Bedell!

Whoa, that looks intense AW!
 
Redo on my pics, for some reason they come out sideways when I try to post from my phone.

Here's a couple of the bits of my quilt, I'm not a great picture taker though!







And the finished top!
