Please Accept My Apology

I can't believe I whined about my un-quilted tops and fabric stash. Nobody should be allowed to complain about having too much of a good thing. I should be grateful I have the income to splurge on fabric just because I want it and that I have enough good health and relaxation time to spend quilting.  If I have too much fabric or unfinished quilts it's my own dang fault.

Last Saturday I started and finished quilting this wall hanging that I made a year ago.

And I finished Market Day the weekend before. Don't know if they show up or not but I tried some new feathers in the border...some of the loops look like long fingers...I'll have to work on my spacing...but for a first try it's not too bad. I was really pleased with how the corners turned out. I used a variegated thread which I really like.

I still haven't put the Picnic blocks together but I did use the scraps to make this really easy table runner. It's a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop. It was supposed to be a leader / ender project but as usually happens patience got tossed aside and it became a finished project.

My civil war quilt is loaded on the frame ready to go.

Lots of progress...

Lots of results...

And I'm not going to whine about how much binding I have that needs hand sewn.  ;o)

I did not consider that you were complaining...I thought it was just a prod to yourself to get some things finished.

And look, you did do some quilting!

I always think I have to live a long time to use up the fabric I have and to even begin to make a dent in the things I want to make!
