I got a few of the yo-yo's re-attached during the meeting.  Then got asked if I was a seamstress.  Which was followed by a request for a shower window curtain which of course is not a seamstresses job I don't think.  Anyway I told him I was a beginner and didn't do anything without my teacher watching over my shoulder. 

I might have been able to pull off a curtain but certainly not a plastic one.

Yes, sewing with plastic is certainly tricky.

#13 Charity Quilt:  Yellow Yo-Yo.  I can't decide whether I should line it or if i should fill in with little yo-yo's between the big yo-yo's so that it is solid.  Lining it would be sturdier I think.  I have time before I have to decide.

#13 Charity Quilt:  Yellow Yo-Yo.  I took it back to queen bee's and we decided to give Dahlia first crack at it and then Doris.  They both like yo-yo's.

No wonder I got stuck I was on number 13, lol. 

14 Charity Quilt:  60's Circles.  I've pretty much figured out how I'm going to quilt this I just have to get it sandwiched.

15 Charity Quilt:  Tropical Seascape.  I started on this at Queen Bee's.  It was a rough start but it should get better.

Dahlia wasn't there I'm going to have to ferret out her number and give her a call.  I probably should have done that anyway.

15 Charity Quilt:  Tropical Seascape Quilt.  I'm plugging along but at least I'm plugging.

15.  Charity Quilt:  Tropical Seascape Quilt.  I did the coral, the fish, the sea.  now I have the island, clouds, sky, and border to do.  i'm getting there.  I had to stop this morning because I couldn't figure out how to do air.  I found a nice motif on the internet that I'm going to use.

15.  Charity Quilt:  Tropical Seascape Quilt.  Finished the island with all those palm trees, yikes, and I got the clouds done.  Now I'm working on the air.  So I have that and the border to quilt and then it is bind and label.  I'll do that at the queen bee's in mid December.  We are all bringing pot luck and hand work so we don't have to pull out any of our gear.  It should be nice.

15.  charity quilt:  Tropical Seascape Quilt.  Got two more sides done so only one more to go then binding the front.  The back and the label I'll do at Queen Bee's.

14.  Charity Quilt:  60's Circles.  I finally got this spray basted.  Hopefully I'll manage to get it pinned tomorrow.  That way I will have a clean cutting table for quilt 15's squaring off.

14. Charity Quilt: 60's Circles.  It is pinned so it is ready for quilting.  I want a celtic design for this one so I'll have to practice FMQ'ing it first before I start on the quilt. 

15.  Charity Quilt:  Tropical Seascape.  This one is on the couch where I'll work on it.  Good project for while the heat is out.

15.  Charity Quilt:  Tropical Seascape.  This quilt is a bit of a stinker, or maybe that is me.  Anyway I wanted to do the machine binding required to do the rest by hand at the Queen Bee's Pot Luck but it didn't work out that way.  It was one thing after another and I finally took the 60's Circles to the Pot Luck instead.  I'm glad I did I learned a lot from Marilyn about tracing a motif onto the quilt.  Very useful information.

I'll be trying to get the binding on the quilt again probably today.
