Mary has 3 very large projects, Elizabeth, so there won't be time for a 4th or 5th.

How is everyone doing?  

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Wednesday

Mary, you could make the Hawaiian Quilt as your #1 priority of the PhD challenge and have the other 5 as next in line.

I am working on the 8th applique block of Tulip Twist today and also I am ready to sandwich my Pansy Quilt for the other challenge tomorrow.

Comment by Riana Noyes on Wednesday

Mary, what a splendid idea! We'll just have to see what Linda comes up with. Any progress on your Hawaiian is good. If your interest should flag, l'll just " ban" you from working on it...then you'll want to again,lol!

Comment by Mary Moore on Wednesday

I think you should make a Linda style..maybe Arizonan..so your wall hanging will remind them of you.  Maybe include a sneaky bit of Hawaiian fabric to confuse the issue.

Comment by Linda Koller on Wednesday

Awwww! Thank you, Barbara! Any needle turn applique intimidates me. Believe it or not, I'm all thumbs! Same feeling with those hexies you all love so much. It's all so beautiful tho. I am considering a small Hawaiian wall hanging or table runner but doing it with machine applique....maybe? My exDIL is full Hawaiian and her mom has been so gracious to me. I have been accepted into the California part of the tribe and have been introduced to many family members now. I was even introduced as my exDIL's (she's the daughter I never had) other mom, which in Hawaiian culture is not done. So I want to do something special for them. I have to pick the right design too as each had a special meaning.

Linda, Hope you don't mind my opinion. You amaze me with all the sewing you have done through the years that you would be intimidated by any quilt. When I think of the costumes you've made, banners. All kinds of fabrics and patterns. Lovely, Lovely work. I think there isn't anything you couldn't do.True also that Mary does fabulous work also.

Beth, to be in this challenge, please make a list on here of anywhere from 1 to 6 projects that have been lingering...either because they'll take a huge commitment of time, or they are at the edge of our skill set. These aren't your " run of the mill " ufo's. These are ones that have been kept through all our purges in the hopes we'd get to it " someday". Well, now is ' somy'....lets do it!

Chris, what an amazing quilt.  They are so blessed to receive this.

Mary, hope Paul continues to heal and your quilt causes you pleasure as you quilt away.  Looks beautiful.

I am hoping to make some progress tomorrow on my Winter Memories.  Doing a little handwork on another PHD.

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 21, 2020 at 10:01pm

Chris, that's looking spectacular! The paper piecing is coming out so precise!

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 21, 2020 at 9:58pm

Mary, your handwork is exceptional. Hope Paul continues to behave so you can enjoy more time for quilting.

Comment by Linda Koller on January 21, 2020 at 8:33pm

I've always wanted to do a Hawaiian quilt, Mary. I find it too intimidating.

Comment by Mary Moore on January 21, 2020 at 7:10pm

The Hawaiian Quilt has 9 center squares (5 are quilted) They are separated by 24 biggish borders (I just finished #10)  Maybe this should have been my only PHD?

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 21, 2020 at 1:14pm

Beth, so glad you are here with us for the PhD challenge.  I have the privilege of owning the beautiful tote bag you see in the picture above.  Riana made it and gave it to me as a present when she visited me.

The quilts that are being made are incredible!  The latest one - Chris's Vintage Rose - I couldn't imagine tackling.  I quilt at the other end of the spectrum - the easy end!  I quilt what I feel comfortable with.  I love seeing the gorgeous, complicated ones though.

Comment by Mary Moore on January 21, 2020 at 10:59am

Chris that is amazing.

Beth, Glad you found us.  Riana is Mama Duck and makes all the rules and keeps us organized.

Actually quilted for almost a half hour straight yesterday, between barking at Paul to behave.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on January 21, 2020 at 8:33am

WOW Chris!!

Comment by Linda Koller on January 21, 2020 at 8:23am

Chris, your Vintage Rose is spectacular!

Comment by Beth A. North on January 21, 2020 at 7:38am

Found the group.

OHG Mary, that is terrifying.  Not a fun thing at all.  Praying for full feeling back upon the healing process. 

Love the Vintage Rose Chris, looking great. 

Elizabeth, those applique blocks look wonderful.  

I am working on a couple of those PHD projects.  I have applique to cut out and then sew some dresden's onto the fusible interfacing so I can get them appliqued down.  

Have we figured out how we end up with these PHDs?

Comment by Chris Michelle on January 21, 2020 at 6:42am

Made progress on the wedding quilt for my son in the last few days. I am making Vintage Rose by Quiltworx. His fiance's favorite color is purple. 

Comment by Linda Koller on January 20, 2020 at 12:37pm

Gail, praying you'll be back at it soon.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 20, 2020 at 12:33pm
