Making it Happen

This morning I made the binding and attached it to the front of the three latest quilts that have just come off the long arm - 2 Guild cuddle quilts and the quilt for Carol. This takes me one step closer to three finished quilts -yippee! I hope to get the binding hand stitched to the back on all of these quilts over the next week or so and I am starting with Carol's quilt.

Now that I have got all of the machine work done for those three quilts it is time to pick another quilt to get to the finish line. I have decided that I will continue where I left off with my Little Houses quilt. It has been ages since I have worked on it. Look at the date in the photo - yikes. This is one that will be very scrap happy when it is finished. I put it away at the stage where I needed to add the sashing. I decided that I would use a solid red and I have already got it cut into strips but it still needs to be sub cut to fit the blocks. I am going to use cornerstones so I also need to cut those as well. Once I do that I will have everything ready to go. I really like it when I have everything prepared ahead of time and then I can just get lost in 'the zone'.

My goal is to get my sewing studio under control and getting quilts done and I am making it happen!

I agree having everything ready does help you to get in the zone. You are really going to town on those ufo's.
