There were some patterns that i just couldn't fit into a ballerina quilt so I used other colors and just put them together for a sewing room wall hanging.

I pulled out the Splendid Sampler and hung it up to see what I had:

I finished the embroidery on one square, made another, put sashing on where needed and fixed the wrong sashing on the last row.  So I got one more row done and joined to the rest today.

Those are really pretty, Linda.  Love the purple and green together.

Barbara = that's a beautiful version of a French Braid star!  I love the pattern and the colors.  

Riana - that duck picture made me laugh out loud - for real!!

Oh Riana, love your sense of humor!! LOL

I started early because next week I go for outpatient surgery for my throat dilation. Later in month, I'll be going in for ablation on my low back. Then February, I see kidney doctor and then eye surgeon starts preparing me for cataract surgeries. I'm allergic to local anesthesia so I have to have everything done as outpatient surgery so I can be put to sleep. It takes me a couple extra days to recover.

Hopefully, I'll have photos of blocks #1 & #2 tomorrow and maybe #3 too.

In an effort to get organized in my “shared” sewing room/office, hubby hung up my thread holders to allow more organization and easier to find stuff.  Went to visit mom and now I am off to draw the 4 blocks for Winter Memories.  That is about how long I can stand without leg bugging me.  Will also look for backing for pumpkin quilt so I can meet up with long armer this week.

Riana, love the new look....mama duck at her best.

Barbara, loom at you go! Great start.

Linda, l saw you sneek into line a bit early with 3 blocks begun...bravo!

Carla, " Fruit and Feathers" it is! Soon l will be posting your lists where the bag photo is now...hopefully the page will allow me to edit progress on your lists as we go.

Remember, quilters, this is not a race/ contest with each other, but rather a way to keep each participant focused.  Starting tomorrow, l will give you helpful hints. Feel free to chime in with your own ideas. Anyone who's struggling to keep focused should let us know so we can encourage refocussing with hints and ideas.

Mary...now do you believe me?

Comment by Barbara Hughes on January 1, 2020 at 3:44pm

Just 215 to go!! 

Comment by Barbara Hughes on January 1, 2020 at 3:43pm

Started to lay out my second quilt and will need to press out all the creases due to being in storage. Finished gluing all 216 hexies which I will be doing when I'm bored with #1. Here is my begining work.

Comment by Mary Moore on January 1, 2020 at 12:29pm

I am hoping for lots of in progress pictures. 

Riana, You really don't look like a mamma duck. Or a drill Sargent.

Comment by carla j walton on January 1, 2020 at 9:39am

I am only going to put one thing on this list in hopes of finishing it this year. It has lingered for many years!

* finish fruit and feathers hand quilted kaleidoscope  quilt

* bind and label

Comment by Riana Noyes on December 31, 2019 at 9:56pm

Carla the clock is ticking...tick ...tock... 2 hr. and 15 minutes until midnight...read faster! Anywhere from one large to 6 not so large/ difficult projects. These could be projects that have lingered because you got overwhelmed, blindsided by life event , or lacked a certain skill when you first attempted it. We will be coaching each other. I will be momma duck, keeping you in line. Beware...momma duck sometimes must nibble at a tardy or wayward duckling...so if l seem bossy or like a drill sergeant, so be it. But you  will learn some good work habits!  And the first good habit is to have a clear, detailed list  of what it is we plan to accomplish ie: your work order. That part is so very important, l won't let you start without it.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on December 31, 2019 at 9:24pm

Actually, Riana, my pile up looks worse than that. lol!!

Gail, you're cuter than a bugs ear. Had to read that one to hubby.

Comment by Mary Moore on December 31, 2019 at 9:14pm

OK, so tomorrow I will pick which snow dyed fabrics get to play, look at their relative sizes and organize the top.  Largest Piece with get the full Don Quixote, others will have other silhouettes(thank heaven for spell check) of key items in the book.  Thinking about a plain black border in between blocks.  Can't enlarge the first picture till after dark.  So will work on 2nd sock of son's Christmas present.

Paul has researched translators for the book, Don Quixote,and downloaded it to my kindle.  I haven't read it since college, and may be remembering the musical..not the book.
