"Hi Gail, I just got back from exercising in the pool. I am going to watch the Remembrance Day Ceremony (what is left of it) and sew on the label of the Bird Baby Quilt and press the binding on the back.
That piece I could not remember is…"
"Yes, Gail, those are different bird panels, like pheasant, duck et. To the extreme right are wolves, top right in dark green are wild life like deer, under it are brown bears on light gold, on top of the birds are deer panels, the largest…"
"Good Morning! Thank you Barbara for explaining ROFLOL. Just don't count in the fabric on the pink box, but it still leaves a lot of fabric I brought home yesterday. Last year it was Japanese and African fabric - this year it…"
"I have room for all of it. But a lot of it has wild animals on the fabric and a few pieces are really big and I think I'll use them for backing. Tomorrow I'm going to make and sew the binding for the baby quilt that has to be…"
"Today I was our sew day for QOV. I bought enough fabric to fill 3 laundry tubs when I got home. And I bought 2 packages of those colourful plastic things to hold the binding together while you machine or hand sew the binding. …"
"I've already designated my barely started BOM Tulip Twist as my PHD for 2020. I will start in January on 2 pieced blocks. This will be my priority each month and I'll still be working on all my other UFOs which are lesser…"

If you downloaded the pattern from her blog, it should be a file on your computer and you can just attach the file to an email. Otherwise, if you scan it to your computer, again it will have a file name and can be attached. I'm not in any hurry to start...so many other things to do and my good machine is in the shop. But thank you so much for helping me out!
The "wood grain" quilting sounds interesting, can't wait to see the whole quilt done.Remember l signed up for the free online longarm class? lt said for best results, use a computor ( instead of tablet etc.) , so l closed it, deciding to use computor later. Now it won't come up.l wonder if there was a time limit.l wish l'd taken it on the tablet, even if not as good as on computor.
Smart idea, about the mug rugs...l would never have thought of fabric gluing...l'd have probably gone to snipping/pulling out the poor handwork , washed & redone w/machine. Not likely a" profitable" use of time:)
