Great Progress


What a perfect day off! Spent the entire day in my sewing room...first I made binding and attached it to this quilt. About 10 years ago I purchased the top in Payson, Arizona...was suppose to be old, but now I'm not so sure. What do you think?? It was hand quilted by the local senior center ladies.

Next, I added the borders to the Ruby Tulips. This is from the 9 Patch Pizzazz book. Another top finished!! Now I'm trying to decide on binding--green or the red/black fabric? I like to cut bindings at this point, so I don't use the fabric in another project!

This afternoon I finished piecing the center section above. Several months ago, I became bored with matching all the points and set this one aside. Hopefully, the borders will be added tomorrow.

Update on the count...3 quilts needing binding-all ready to have the binding attached to the back by hand--great fall projects, 15 tops to quilt, 4 projects in process and at least 20 projects ready to start...along with way too much fabric in the stash to begin to quantify! On Thursday, we are going to SunRiver for 4 nights. Of course the sewing machine will go with me, along with my current scrapbooking project.

Great job! I love all those tops and doesn't it feel good to make some good progress? I especially am fond of the tulip one (coming from a Dutch girl!) I have that book and it's on my never ending list! LOL

Love the red, white and blue quilt! Simple pattern, yet very striking. Keep stitching away as you're making great progress.

Oooh I love all three of these quilts. I am glad you showed the Tulip Pizzazz as I have a cut of fabric I wanted to do something special with and this might just be it!
