Okay, define finished? Picnic is a flimsy...

The bazillion half squares were all squared up, sewed into broken dishes block, then sewed into stars, then all sewed together. I LOVE HOW THIS TURNED OUT.

I made a quilt and two table runners from the jelly roll...this is all that is left...I'm trying to let it go.

I do NOT have to use up every little bit right now...but I really really want to. What could I make with that little bit?

The rows to Day Break are sewn together. I added background pieces the ends to square it up so I don't have to make bias binding or deal with the innie corners.

Got the binding hand sewn on the civil war BOW...that one I can confidently say is finished.

And the poor rose quilt got put back in the pile. Do you remember the very large log cabin quilt I bought at a garage sale a couple of years ago? Well, I did cut it up into four smaller quilts. I got the first one quilted and another is currently loaded on the frame.

The top has everything in it and is not very cuddly. I used some of the flannel squares I made up a few years go for the back.  Very bright, but soft and cuddly. Hopefully it makes up for the top.

I have friends coming over to sew next weekend and the following I should finish all four soon.

Maybe not finishes, but I think I've definitely made progress.

I love the Picnic quilt top! I think I've mentioned a million times that I want to make this one. I have fabric set aside and everything! Congrats on getting so much done.

Oh, my you have been so busy. I don't even know where to begin...I just love everything you have done. Yes, I remember the log cabin you bought..I bet it becomes more cuddly with a few washings. I am still loving that Picnic...really, really like it. It would be a good use for some of my scraps.

I am still collecting batiks for daughter's Lotus quilt. Have 74 or 75 blocks made. And just got fabrics my daughter ordered and had sent some i have bought, plus more she bought herself and sent this way. One of these days I will get to finish it.
