Didn't think I was ever gonna' finish it, did ya?

Well, I did. Blue and yellow quilt top is completed. I'll take a picture in the next day or two. It's rainy and windy, and the best place to take the pictures is on our porch.

Whew! projects....I have the fabric for a sampler out and ready to go, and am thinking about a baby quilt. I'm ready to put Holly's wedding quilt together, but I don't have the pictures she has chosen for it. We are going to visit soon, and we'll figure out something.

Finally, progress!!!

So I finally felt like doing something. I finished the binding on this quilt this morning. The only thing lacking is a label. I took a picture to show the quilting design since it really shows up on this design.

This was a mystery quilt designed by Deb at Quiltaholics. For those of you who don't know what that means....When you do a mystery, you get fabric requirements, but you don't know what the finished quilt will look like. I've done 4 mysteries. Two of them are Deb's. I will try to take some pictures of the other mysteries and post them later this week.

These are the quilts that hang over the rail of our loft in the barn where we are living right now. They were all done by my mother except for the bottom picture, left quilt, the Irish Chain. She hand quilted all four.

I'm not a slacker....

Really. I'm not. We were gone for two weeks to Alaska, and although I tried, I did not get to one fabric store. We saw one, and my husband pretended to be sad for me because it was closed on Sunday when we saw it. I did meet a lady who designs miniature quilts at a craft show. She had some beautiful designs, but I have enough to do without starting one of them!

So...goals. This is tricky as I hurt my back when we were in Alaska. It is slowing me down, and I haven't done much of anything. And I've been reading. Lots. We bought a bunch of books in Alaska, and I've read 4 and I'm almost finished with number 5.

I did work on the blue and yellow quilt. It is almost all together. So that is my major goal.

1. Complete blue and yellow quilt top.
2. Finish hand sewing the binding on the gold quilt.

I'll try to post some pictures of the two quilts I'm working on if blogger will let me.
