I finished quilting the Urban 9 Patch, I thnk Lily is going to like it.  Its' got some nice cozy pink fleece on the back.  I used Quilters dream, dream puff batting, so fine thread on top and bottom line in the bobbin.  


And the Free Motion Quilting Challenge, I had just enough fleece left over at the bottom to get this months challenge done.  I used a different fill in each section.  The print on the top is pretty crazy but you can see the quilting better on the back.  I would like to try this one again with the same fill in each segement, I really like the technique.

A-7, A-5, C-2, C-4

D-4, D-3, D-1, D-2
I finally worked on my dear jane blocks, 8 of them done, that's a record for me :)

We're heading to sunny funny Florida this week.  Can you take scissors and needles on a plane?  I was thinking of working on the hexies on the plane, just not sure if you they'll let you on with scissors.  Get this I"m gonna go para-sailing while I'm out.  Well sitting here in my mid west home I can say, I hope I don't chicken out :)  Definitely snorkeling, I know I won't chicken out on that one.

  7. Oh my Sharon! Just absolutely LOVE your Urban Nine Patch!!! You did a fabulous job of quilting it too! What a treasure!!! And you've been a busy little bee with your DJ blocks! They are so darned cute :*)

    You can carry scissors in your checked baggage, but if they are in your carry on stuff they might toss them. It depends on the airport. Some of them will let you get by with the tiny scissors, but I had a friend who had her mother's scissors confiscated at an airport in France - she was devastated!

    You GO girl!!! Para-sailing is something I've always wanted to do. You have to tell us all about it when you come back so I can get up the courage to try it :*) Have fun on your trip.

  8. Yes, you can take scissors on a plane. Less than 4 inches for the purpose of needle craft. The first time I tried it, I printed out the TSA guidelines just in case, but it hasn't caused a problem yet, even on international flights. Awesome quilting on both quilt. 8 DJ blocks, amazing!!

  12. Your quilt is amazing! I only dream of quilting like you do. :)
    Love all your DJ blocks. I'm still a DJ coward.
    I buy kid Fiskars scissors in the school supply section to use for my travel bags. That way I'm only out a couple dollars instead of several if I lose them. They are nice and sharp.
    Para-sailing! Have fun!

  13. Wow the u9p should go in a show! I wish I could do a DJ, I am having so much trouble with the FW quilt that I know a DJ would be too much for me. Very nice job!!

  16. Great urban nine patch. I love the lime and how you have quilted it, it makes me want to start my own. No scissors on the plane, I have a clover thread disk cutter and a mini pair of thread clips that are plane save. I have sewn on planes.

  22. Beautiful! I see where others said yes to scissors but they took mine and my needles and throw them in a bin. I was so mad! So take an old pair just in case!

  23. Just stunning! Love your FMQ and your U9P!

  24. Your work is amazing! Love to see all your blocks and quilting! And yes to scissors as long as no larger than 4 inches. I told them I had a pair so they did look through my carry on to find them. I had forgot and actually had packed two pairs...one pair I had wrapped around the cord and apparently it resembled a letter opener. But once they found the second set, it was fine. Have a wonderful trip!

  25. wonderful quilting. I like your free motion quilting fillers. That looks fabulous. Of course, I like the Urban 9 patch too. Great work.

  26. Beautiful quilts. Definitely drool-worthy. You've probably already left, I'm a little late checking blogs, but yes you can take needles on the plane, scissors too if they're small enough. That is unless they've changed the rules again. I usually work on hexies when I fly, I take the small scissors that come in a repair kit. That way if I have to toss them, I'm not tossing my good ones. Enjoy your trip.
