Finish All the Quilts


Well, I know how I'm spending my Christmas vacation. Lots and lots of binding. Oh wait, does having the kids and Hubby home for two weeks with me qualify as vacation?

That is four quilts there waiting for binding. Two of them are king sized. Those ones I got back from Andrea at Urban Quiltworks. Beyond excited for what she did on those. Wait until you see them. Alas, those have to wait for presents and magazine projects to be finished first.

Did I mention I finished two other quilts last week? And I'm hoping to get my Alturas quilt quilted and bound before Christmas as well? I'm on fire! If I get all these done that knocks of 6-7 quilts from my massive Under Construction list. Woohoo!

Honestly, I am on a finishing kick. And I'm already anticipating a very, very busy January and February. There won't be a lot of quilt finishes or sewing for fun for the rest of the winter. But there will be some very exciting things to come. No complaints here. In the meantime, I'm happy to snuggle with my hand stitching and Downton Abbey and Mad Men reruns.

I have a large stack that I plan to quilt and bind by years end. I think your stack might be more doable.

Yay for getting things done! You go!

Hnmm! I don't know that that qualifies as vacation, either. What a great feeling to get so many quilts done--congratulations! BTW, what is that great blue fabric on the top quilt that looks like a circuit board?

You are definitely on fire! I can't wait to see your finished quilts too! I'm hoping I can kick it into high gear after Christmas. I've got at least 6 quilt tops that need to be quilted. Have a wonderful "holiday"! :)

Looks like a fun spate of hand-sewing ahead for you. Hope the weather allows for lots of outside play and fun for the Little ones. Happy Holidays to the whole Arkinson Family.
