Rounding 'em Up

I am in a 5 week count down
until my local quilt guild's quilt show.
I have been resisting a few things...
1. Buying new fabric, which is hard to do
2. Starting a NEW project, which gets pretty tempting
3. Doing a spring cleaning in my sewing and really straighten out my
mess... that keeps getting scarier all the time
But so far have remained focused on getting the quilts finished, really finished,
for the show. I think I have about 15 or 16 that will be going.
I rounded up my tops and have a steady flow getting long arm quilting.
Half of those are older quilts that are already quilted and might just need a sleeve
and possibly a label.
The exciting part is seeing the quilts coming back from the quilter...


I just got my 2012 FQS Mystery BOM back yesterday!
I will be working on the binding this weekend, along with
another quilt of mine that came back last week or so.

This one is Boardwalk from  Boughs of Holly blog.
I have my Boardwalk ready to send off next and I am going to send along this picture
with it. I think the quilting is so pretty on it.

I kind of thing that
getting the binding on those quilts is a kind of spring cleaning in itself.

WOW - that's quite a few quilts that will be attending...LOL FANTASTIC!! It's got to be exciting to see the Mystery BOM with its quilting. Are you signed up for the 2013 BOM at FQS?

Gorgeous quilts! I really love the BOM quilt. I'm a little jealous -- binding is my favorite part (next to cutting, of course), but I don't have anything ready to bind. :-)

Love the quilting on the boardwalk too! I think I need to get mine finished before I scope out the quilting! Hope you don't forget to take lots of pics of the quilt show!!

Ambitious! I have been going through my stack of quilt tops finishing off several; what a great sense of accomplishment. Wish I had done it a long time ago

Now I'm thinking I'd like to finish a project entirely instead of just making the top and tucking it away; but I can't see that I'd seriously do it. lol

Cathy said...

I love your projects. Wish I could go to the quilt show. Since I can't be sure to take lots of pictures. Hugs
