Friday must have been a good day!

Friday must be a "quilting day" because many of the blogs that I follow (out of the thousands posted by quilters) are featuring progress or completed work.

Wendy says she hasn't been working on quilts, but her post says she has. Nice pictures of an "older" quilt too.

Margo, with grandsons, made some delightful rooster pin cushions.

Joyce has pieced some imaginative wall hangings and is making wild and crazy colored bags.

Jeanne posts progress in wall hangings, an arm chair caddy, and putting the border on a complex red and green quilt that is now off to a longarm quilter. Wow, she did a lot of work this week.

SewKalico's post says "None of my own work" but she did work on someone's UFO and when a friend wanted fish fabric, she painted the most marvelous fish for her. Go have a look!

Tazzie reports she is busy on a huge stack, but her biggest joy this week is to have one of her quilts in “Australian Patchwork & Quilting” magazine. Way to go, Tazzie!

Quiltdivajulie finished a lovely black and white with green quilt that she calls “Growing Pains” and posted it today. She had two more completions online yesterday.

And Wanda at Exuberant Color is packed up to teach a class about color and making tote bags, but if you go through her week, she has been busy too.

As for me, I finished one and got the label on and entered it in my record book. I also made a pillow out of the leftovers (no photo). Then I started a landscape quilt. It has three pieces of fabric on it so far, so can hardly be called a huge accomplishment, but I am excited because this represents most of the quilts that are in my head but not yet expressed. I'll post some progress pictures soon.

In the meantime, have a great weekend!

Thanks for the shout out ~ as usual, there's been a long spell of pondering and piecing leading up to the flurry of "finishes"... good for you for starting the landscape quilt (here's to the visions in our minds).

Thanks for your comments, and bringing some sense to the table. I've decided I like the dark strips, but after considering your comment, I would definitely take them out if they bothered me.

From the looks of your blog you're staying busy!!

Sometimes just starting a piece that has been percolating for a while is a big accomplishment even if it only has a couple of pieces applied to the design board. Getting the project rolling can take a monumental effort in my experience. I'm working on a new piece too that has been brewing in my head for a while-no pictures and no blogging about it yet as it would not be much to report at face value. BTW, I like how you gave a little synopsis of what some other bloggers were up to and a link to their blogs!
