I went into my sewing room two days ago and started looking through my books/patterns (way too many)… excitedly dreaming of the all projects that I could start next.
But then I heard noises coming from all the piles of unfinished projects!
They were murmuring “finish me!”
I started looking around at all the quilts that were quilted without bindings, half quilted, and other tops in various states of completion.
I have 18 quilt tops sitting in a box. IN A BOX. Most of which I adore and would love to have on beds and being used.
Okay that was enough to guilt me into finishing up some of these projects and laying my plans to make MORE unfinished quilt tops aside.
I am now on a mission.
I will FINISH THINGS IN FEBRUARY!
I started with the easiest and will move on from there.
I quilted and bound my winter quilt (Winter Green Threads book by Needle’Love, shown here just pinned up to see how it would look, still need to wash it to get the chalk marks out)
Then I moved on to quilting and binding my new springy table runner. (Sugar Cookies free pattern on Moda Bake Shop)
Next I put the binding on this little civil war quilt (out of a Jo Morton book) that I quilted months ago.
Okay I was on a roll! Don’t stop now Melissa!
I put the binding on the Christmas Cottage Exchange blocks that I quilted in Nov, but never got to the binding part due to holidays.
I am feeling happier and happier!
Today I am digging into my Tops Box and will start to quilt all the smaller quilts…the bigger ones will have to go to the quilter when she returns the two she has already.
I am starting with this one that was partially quilted before my machine went on the blink.
It’s a Turning 20 pattern that I made for the quilt shop, but now will go to my niece for her little baby boy soon to arrive:
So that’s whats been happening at my house.
I hope you may feel encouraged to finish some of your poor, sad, lonely, forgotten projects this month too!
