Here's the stack of six quilts that have the binding sewn on the front and now only need to be hand stitched to the back, that I am taking on vacation with me. There are two flannel on the bottom, two orientals and two Christmas ones on the top of the stack. Last night I put the label on another one and worked on hand quilting a block that will be a pillow. Such a sense of accomplishment! I'll post pictures as they are finished.

Here is the latest view of what is on the design wall. Check the previous posting for the first version. This is much closer to what I am looking for. This was an attempt to use up the second panel of this design that resulted in the purchase of six more fabrics...what kind of diet & stash buster is that?? Who knows when it will get finished, as I go back to school in less than two weeks!

I'm off to Sun River in central Oregon later today for the week! For those of you not near here, that means driving through Sisters, Oregon and a stop at the Stichin Post, one of the many great shops in Oregon. I am on a fabric diet, but need purple thread to sew on one of the bindings ...let's see how I do! Last time I was there on my diet, I came out with an entire new batik project!! Oh well, at least it's not putting pounds on my body, just on the shelf in my sewing studio!

Wow! You are on a mission and I admire your accomplishments. Hope you have a great trip this week as you get some R&R. I've never been to the Stitching Post...would be a great shop to visit and attend the Sister's Quilt Show. Someday maybe...
