My list and a binding finished...

I spent some time yesterday cleaning my quilting room. I also made a list of all the quilts ( assorted sizes, some are table toppers) that have "needs". Now I'm not saying I will get all these needs taken care of this summer, but it helps to know what is there so I can take a stab at it.

I have 7 that need bindings....but the good news is that I have 3 bindings ready to go, and the fabric ready for 3 more.  I will need to find fabric for the 7th one.

I have a lot that need to be quilted, so I organized them into 2 groups by whether I have a back for them or don't have a back. I was surprised, but there are 9 that I have the backs for, so they will go first. Most of the quilts that I teach monthly classes on are unquilted because I have a hard time hanging them at the sometimes I just run out of time. I still have 2 quilts to quilt for my friend, too, plus my daughter's quilt to quilt and bind. Her birthday is in July!

So today, after some gardening, I cut and made the 3 bindings that were left to make. Then I sewed one on this table topper. I sewed both sides by machine, so it went quickly. It's a start!

Tomorrow I am sewing with friends...this is becoming a usual Tuesday thing. I hope to finish sewing my diamonds together for the St. Marks quilt. I haven't touched it since last week. I might take a small quilt along to bind, just in case I get in the mood.

I also have a Sampler Class tomorrow night. It is the last night for this quilt, so I will need to take some pictures of their blocks.

I love your quilt....and the fact that you are soooo organized. I went though my UFO's 2 weeks ago...and it doesn't look good...but atleast they are in one place...right? I hope I don't have more upstairs....if you hear me will know.

I love that you made a list of what needs to be done; especially since you have so many close to being done.

Love the way that you describe your quilts as having needs. Sounds like there will be a lot of finishes for you to show soon.

I have many UFO`s too that need to be finished.

Happy quilting!!

It's so easy for our projects to get out of our minds and be forgotten, to some degree. Making that list is so logical, and you will no doubt be finishing quilt after quilt this summer.
Are you sure you can't pack a few more things into your days? Lady! you wear me out, just reading about your plans.
