Progress and More Progress

You know - - - I read these blogs, and it seems that some people just have FINISH after FINISH...  it's just amazing!!

This little charity quilt, for the Sunshine Quilt guild, is getting sandwiched and pinned

 ugh - this is the stack of "needs"..... needs binding, needs labels, needs something... ugh, i will just look in another direction
 BUT - EUREKA  . . and YIPPEE  and all those things!!

This little baby is now completely quilted...  now, I ask you, who had the bright idea to quilt a circle around every pattern on that blue fabric, so it would show on the back???  yes, that would be mee...
 here's the front - ready to be trimmed and bound...
 .......... and here's what the back looks like...


............. and I picked up a packet of fabric to cut for our guild charity project - there's a lot in that bag!!!!    We have a prison quilt program - and the ladies in the prison can't have much by way of cutting tools, for obvious reasons...  so we often have these  big cutting jobs to do...  and I like cutting... this will be fine.  lots of nice reds in there!!

Well, it's only 1:00 in the afternoon - I can go get into some more trouble in my sewing room!!!

Happy quilting,

Kate

Just love that quilting & your colors are brilliant! Your "needs" pile looks like it is calling out for a "sew in" with some friends! I think sewing with friends makes the tedious tasks enjoyable.... At least they fly by!

You were right, those circles look great on the back. But, oh my, what a job! And I agree about finishes, I can't keep up with some of those people either. I finally have decided that I can work at my own pace and that I am not competing with anyone....if I can just remember that. ;(

I know what you mean about all those people who seem to finish a quilt every day. Yikes, when do they sleep? I wondered how the ladies in prison quilting programs managed and now you have answered my question. Thanks for helping to provide a creative outlet for what might otherwise be aimless days.

Your quilting looks great. Sounds like next time you may change your mind when it comes to little circles. Sandi
