Mid-Week Check in

Who knows what day it really is?  I have to keep asking myself with so many snow days in a row.

I hit the 20 quilted (finished) mark yesterday.  I started trimming the edges in preparation of bindings.  I came to the realization that it will probably take me most of February to do all the bindings.  I also know it will be a challenge to find suitable bindings for some of the really old projects.

This pattern is called two-fer.  I have to admit that I like it a lot better quilted.

This is the other runner that is created from the strip sets.  I had multiple problems quilting this one (operator error), but it is ready for binding.

This runner is really wide for a table.  I am not sure I will be able to find a location for it.

I am itching for a new project like you wouldn't believe.

This week I hope to

  • finish trimming the rest of my quilts in preparation for binding
  • hang up my blue "plus" blocks to see how they look together
  • attach the border strips to an old lodge quilt
  • finish sewing the rows together for my Carolina Crossroads quilt.
  • Get 2 customer quilts ready to quilt
Only a couple more days of January left.  I think I have accomplished everything on my January goal list.  I am already thinking about February goals.

How crazy is it when 8 degrees feels like a heat wave.  I will say - "thank you polar vortex for the extra time to sew this month"

these are beautiful. Can you at least pick up a solid in one of the colors for a binding, or are you trying to work out of what you have on hand?

It is an odd week... but it's up in the 20's outside here now (tshirt weather!). LOL

I think you might be surprised when you go to pick binding... or else I'm just not very picky. I'm definitely more adventurous when it comes to backing & binding after my own UFO busting.
