Wilma, l'll be expecting you to have enough batting on hand well before each top is complete, and many scraps in appropriate colours for backing pulled from stash & stored with the projects top fabrics.quack , quack, quack.

Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on Tuesday

I am still giggling here...love those ducks.  Other than batting and some backing (I hope to be inventive like Riana) and use up the scraps and FQs, all items on list have fabric for top.  Standing for any length has been my issue and I don’t have a low enough table to sit and cut.  So I will concentrate on the easier ones first and move forward. I hope to start PT after Dec 9th, not sure what that will entail...at least it is my left foot, so I can push the peddle on my machine easily.  Managed to get binding on the snowman quilt last night (sister’s Christmas gift) and have one more to bind and mail...memory quilt for a friend in CA.

Oh Riana, I love the duck photos! (ouch, ouch, ouch)

Comment by Linda Koller on Monday

ROFLOL!!!  (ouch)

I got my list complete, have my fabrics and thread. Does that count for having my ducks in a row? LOL (ouch) Will be glad when all the swelling is gone and the stitches come out!

Beth provides the batting when she quilts. I just have to provide the money (some how) to get the quilting done. That's the duck that waddled off! LOL (ouch)

Great Barbara. Now every other project that goes on your list must be just as well provided for.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on Monday

I have my thread, batting and backing for my 1st PhD ready to go.

It's O.K., Linda and Gail, you have until Dec. 31 to get your ducks in a row.  I have no problem with ducks.  My daughter raises ducks and they swim in a child's wading pool.  It has to be cleaned every day.  When I'm there visiting in June, I'll take a photo of them all in a row and post it.

I was at a QOV sew-in today and I sewed an awful lot of blocks!  We used a pattern called Log Cabin triangles used by QOV USA with permission from the designer.

Yes...we have to get from this...                                                to this》

I'm with you Linda, nobody told me about ducks!  I heard about organizing [a very weak spot for me], getting my list ready, etc.  I didn't know about ducks!  Where do we get the ducks?

Comment by Linda Koller on Monday

Ducks? What ducks? There's ducks?!

Comment by Riana Noyes on Monday

No one HAS to have their list yet! But by Dec.31, we bettsr have all ours ducks in a row!

Comment by Barbara Hughes on Monday

Sorry, I don't have my complete list ready yet. I have a Ladies Christmas get-to-gether this Friday and have lots to do. But I do think if WIlly gets her first 7 done she should get a PhD. If she finishes the second 7 she should get a Masters. lol!! Go for it Willy!!

Comment by Riana Noyes on Monday

I like the idea of taking a photo of your list. How be we each do that once we've decided on our projects, and yes they could be revised up until Dec.31/19. On Jan.1/20 , that list will become " written in stone". And l'll be keeping a copy of that commitment, so no fudging allowed! In fairness, new members would be given a month to compile their list and make edits until 1 month after they join. Then they too will be committed, but have less time in the year to complete.

Comment by Riana Noyes on Monday

Mary, just so you give priority #1 to the Hawaiian, l think a yarn project is a perfect idea to rest sore fingers from hand quilting.

Comment by Riana Noyes on Monday

Wilma, that's a pretty long list, what with your foot surgery recovery...but l guess the upside is that once your foot's healed enough for sitting/sewing, you still won't be distracted by golf, or marathon walks while shopping, lol.


Comment by Wilma Schirra-Kays on December 1, 2019 at 10:46pm

I will “quietly” work on my knitting/crocheting projects, but here is the big list.  I do not plan on adding more...the 1st 5 on this list are priority as they are oldest.  Six through 10 are here in “fabric” but my surgery impacted getting them done; 11 through 13 are also here in fabric/stash, but alas ran out of time, plus 13 is heavily embroidered.  Finally, 14 is from a swap and is assembled, just need backing/batting/quilting...will fit in somewhere.  Am sure I have more hidden jams, but not looking yet.

Mary...quietly....LOL!!! Just teasing!! Do you have some sock projects you need to fit in? No objection here. I like to see your creations. Or do you have a tapestry project? Everything you do is so creative.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on December 1, 2019 at 1:26pm

Since there are no quilt police here - it's O.K. with me, Mary.  I am so happy today - I guess you would like to add a yarn project?  Remember when we used to do trapunto - yarn and quilting went together.

Comment by Mary Moore on December 1, 2019 at 11:56am

Could our list contain a non quilted item, she said quietly.
