How can we get this forum going again?  I miss seeing everyone's projects. My eyesight has slowed me down, but I am sewing on a quilt I might be able to share before too long.   What is everyone up to lately?

I don't do much, if any, sewing in the summer, too busy outside.
However, fall is upon us, so I went to the quilt guilds Saturday sewing day and got two tops pinned for quilting. The tops had been finished awhile ago, and just needed layering and pinning to get ready for quilting. ANd, then I had a rainy day with hubby out of the house, so I got them both quilted. I also started a quilt last spring that I'll be digging out shortly.

And, the one I need to get back to work on, I sewed all the half-square triangles last spring, then set them aside, not sure if I can sew them as is, or if I'm going to need to square them all up, there are nearly 100 of them.

Chanda, your quilts are beautiful and so interesting, really love the strip quilt.  You are so productive.

I noticed the horse blocks on the quilt on the bed.   I have some of those blocks (or similar) as well that I turned into pillows a few years ago.  They are still used on my sofa.

The horse quilt was a gift from a friend about 25 years ago, it sits on the spare bed, which is mostly unused, except for laying out new quilts. It is essentially a whole cloth quilt, and it was tied.

Looking good, I like the way you have planned the corners.

Thank you.
They are a little different than the pattern, as I made it two rows longer than the pattern.

Border tryout for my quilt, I'm using this fabric, just checking width of borders (side borders a bit wider than top and bottom to adjust size of quilt)
