No Finishes

Kinda hard to finish something when you are working on five things at once...

This quilt has been laying on the frame for over two weeks (finished this quilt top in 2009, look what I wrote about it then). I can't decide how I want to quilt it.

I had LOTS of bonus triangles from the Picnic blocks. They are squared up at 1.5 inches. The Broken Dishes blocks are 2.5 inches. Using them as a kinda sorta leader-ender.  Oops, missed squaring up a set.

Speaking of the Picnic blocks. I got them sewed into rows last night.

I have also finished all of the Day Break blocks and sewed the sashing on. Here it is on the design bed. I haven't decided if this is the final layout...or not.

Finished quilting the civil war quilt, and have about a third of the binding hand sewn down.

While I haven't finished anything my friends have. Nancy finished this cute quilt top. Little Black Dress fabrics by Moda...yum!
And Angela finished her first baby blanket. Simple tied blanket but I think this is her first sewing project since high school Home Ec (and we won't mention how long ago that was). I wish I'd thought to have her drop one corner so you could see the back... it has the cutest blue, green and white chevron stripe.

She definitely has the quilting (fabric buying) bug, so I am predicting lots and lots of quilts from her soon.

Great projects-I do same thing work on too many things at once!
I cracked up when read in '09 the quilt was next to be quilted!! What happened!!! Ha!
It would be beautiful quilted lotsa ways which is probably part of the trouble.

You have a lot going on at least. I am afraid to do that now...afraid I will get totally sidetracked. I LOVE your Daybreak! Maybe one of these days I will start on one.

I also love your Picnic blocks...and your friend Nancy's quilt top.
