What I’m Working On…

I’ve been doing the best I can to get caught up on all the charity quilts that are here.  There are lots so it’s going to take me a little while.  I’m just thankful that my foot is allowing me to be that machine.

Previously I had tried to go in a “first in first out” mode but this time around I changed it up.  I’m going from smaller to larger.  I happen in get a whole bunch of baby to lap sized quilts.  I am tackling them first.  The quilts are smaller and I can do them in one setting.  My foot is good but standing for a long time to do a large queen sized quilt wouldn’t be as easy.

Here’s a little showing of some that have been on the frame over the last week or so.

These quilts have been a joy to work on.  They aren’t really big so I feel so accomplished saying that I worked all day with childcare and then went up and did a “whole” quilt in the evening.

Of course I did have to get the seam ripper out a time or two.  It was nothing serious.

Quilt after quilt they are all so nice.  Check out this one with the kitties on it….

Thanks so much ladies for sending these my way.  I’m happy to say that I’m finally getting to them.

With all of these quilt tops that have been quilted I’ve not really touch my sewing machine at all.  The entire week of sewing time was spent with these.  That’s okay though.  I seem to work in streaks.  When I was laid up with my foot it was all piecing and no machine quilting…now the tables have turned.

I thought once the Bonnie Hunter mystery colors came out that I would push super hard and try to finish up all the UFOs that I could but I decided to change that up.  Instead I am going to quilt all of the charity quilts that I can.  I’m hoping I can get them caught up by the time the mystery starts.  That’s just under a month from now.  I’m going to have to stick to it to make that work…but that’s okay.  It’s great to have a goal.

So volunteer binders…keep watch in your email box.  I’ll likely be sending out notes to see if you’re up for tackling a binding on a quilt or two.
