I'm working off of a pattern so I didn't have to worry about that.  Using the stripping method makes the execution much easier so far.  We will see.  I managed to get the first 3 placemats cut the second time, marked and ironed in the correct direction.  I'll try to get the 4th done on sunday.

Did it!  now I'm busy turning all the strips into loops.  Considering I'm loopy to begin with this should be the easy part.

Well I got one placemat looped.  2 more to go before thursday and then the last one thursday morning before class.  The only other thing left to do is cut the batting.

I'm not looping the first placemat because that will be done at the class with the other sewing machine just in case mine wasn't a close enough match.  But I did get the rest looped.  And then I cut the batting and the backing.  I chose the spring like fabric.  It gives me two different spring placemats just by turning it over.  I like that idea.  Everything is loaded in the bag to go to class on thursday.  Now I'll just have to add my tools on wednesday night.

Well best laid plans so to speak, I didn't get the first placemat looped.  The rental machine just gave me problems until Jerry came in at the end of the class and retreaded it for me.  But I did get half of the second placemat put together.  It is work matching all of those seams even though I did really well with my 1/4 inch seam there is stretching so I had to go slow and make sure they all came close together at least.  I love how the fabrics turned out especially the stripped pieces.  I can't wait to show it to you.  But I have to get it finished first.

tomorrow is bag lady day at the lqs so I went today to scope out the place.  I found the summer placemat pattern that I want.  It will show off the fabric in my stash really well.  And I have enough for 6 placemats.  So all I have to do is pay for the pattern at 20% off.  I'm liking it.   And yes this will be another project but i'm going to hold off starting it until after the blooming nine patch which will get it's own thread when the class starts or maybe sooner.

Put this in the wrong place first time around.

at baglady day I got 2 yards for the future phoenix bay window quilt that I'm going to do when I grow up.  I got the matching blue for the spring placemats, it is so pretty.  And I got some daisy fabric for the summer placemats plus the pattern that I want to do them in.  Woohoo 50+ dollars in all.  I have to work on my greed, I really do.  But I've got to say it was fun.

Have you seen my quilt bucket list?  It seems to be growing.  It is suppose to go down not up.

Oh I forgot.  The spring placemats, I put the 7/8th inch strips together this morning.  That was work.  And I still have it to do on 3 more placemats when the time comes.

I got all the scraps and fabrics put away in the white, black, yellow, and brown drawer.  Now just have to do the reds and blue drawers.  It is progress.  That shelf was FULL.

The first spring placemat top is finished.  I pulled out the next one that I had already separated the loops on and I did it at the wrong place.  So I'll have to sew them back up and then separate them at the correct places.  There is always something.  Quilting seems to be one of those crafts where my mind must not wonder off at all.  Well it is pretty although I have no idea when I might get a picture.

It's been an interesting experience.  There is only one quilt club meeting in July so it may be awhile but I'll get a picture.

Today I finished sandwiching the first placemat.  So I'll have to find something to practice the free motion quilting on since that is what I plan to do on it.

did the practice and began outlining the project.  I hope all will go well.  I'm taking it easy so I don't reinjure my neck.  The pain from a pinched nerve is really awful.

Well we are going to lose our cameraman at the quilt club that's bad because he takes good pictures and gets them up on the net quickly.  I doubt we will replace him with someone better. 

i have started fmq'ing the placemat.  It is going very slowly but that's ok.  It will get better as I get better.
