Have I Been Busy?

I keep thinking I haven't done much quilting lately, but actually I have. I just haven't been doing a lot of piecing.  So what have I been doing?

I broke two needles trying to free motion quilt this table topper. After lot of unquilting I finally used my walking foot and stitched in the ditch. Also got the binding on...done.

I made two Trick-or-Treat bags for two very cute little boys.

I took the Juki off the frame so I could quilt the butterfly quilt. I've finished all of the in-the-ditch quilting, figured out what I want to quilt in the blocks, made a sample block to test...looks good huh? It's been sitting like that for three weeks.  Can you say CHICKEN!

I am making two very simple rag quilts. I've had this flannel for over 10 years. It needs to be gone. I've finished all the snipping on this one and the other is all ready to be put together.

And I've done lots...

and lots...

of binding. I really really really like these table toppers. Really.

I cleaned out my bookcase. Put all my patterns in sheet protectors and grouped like patterns in binders. Sorted all the magazine. Sorted the books...and shocker, got rid of some of the books.

It only looked that organized for about two seconds.

I did do some piecing. I cut out this Maple Island BQ3 quilt a few months ago and pieced all the blocks last weekend. 

Aren't the colors wild. I finished the top this afternoon but it needs ironed before I can show it off.

AND I went to PIQF yesterday! More on that soon.

I guess those little things really do add up.

You've got some great things to show for your efforts! The patterns and bookshelf alone are worth kudos! The table toppers and the BQ3 are lovely! I'm sure the bags will be a big hit with the boys :-)
I think I have some of the cute flannel cat fabric! I like what you did with it.
Hope the cats fared well at home Saturday -^.^-

How in the world do you get so much done? I know I have been feeling suspended in time, but still...even if not, I would not get half as much done. I sure enjoyed seeing all of this!
