My in-laws were over for the weekend, so the fabric that lives in the guest room had to move into my small sewing room for their visit.
What can I say, other than my stash overflows the space available. The fabric is now moved back into the guest room and I have room again to sew in my sewing room.
As I’ve got an embarrassingly large pile of unfinished quilts I decided that I should stop creating quilt tops and switch to actually quilting and finishing some of them. So, I’ve pulled out two quilt tops to be sandwiched and then quilted.
The first quilt top, is the Hundred Hugs quilt and the second is the Cross my Heart quilt both from the Wedding Dress Blue Blog by Deanna. She has great designs and writes clear and straightforward tutorials. The Hundred Hugs quilt top was made a few years ago and has sat in the UFO pile far too long. The Cross my Heart quilt is a recent finish that I’m trying to keep out of the UFO pile.
So far, I’ve out cut batting for these quilts and selected backing. I hope to get one sandwiched, basted and ready to be machine quilted by the end of the evening.
Wish me luck and no distractions!

Getting projects finished? What an enlightened idea! I’ll have to try it sometime. Good luck with these two quilts. They are small and should work up quickly once you get started. I can’t wait to see them when they are done. Give the man a computer to fix so he’s too busy to distract you. *smile*
It’s interesting to do; get projects finished that is. You are right they should work up quickly – the key is starting. I’ve already put the man to work doing some stuff on my blog, I’m sure I can think of more things for him to fix.
Lovely quilts! Yep, it’s always a good idea to stop now and then and quilt up some tops. I have the same problem. Maybe I’ll take my cue from you! Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss.
Thank you! I’ve now got them ready for quilting, bobbins wound and machine at the ready. Now to just get them done!
I love your bright colors against the white background. Do you have a long arm or do you quilt on your sewing machine? Have fun quilting.
I quilt with my home sewing machine. I’d love a long arm but both budget and space don’t allow that at the moment. One day 🙂
I love your bright and happy quilts! Happy quilting them! Thanks for linking to Finished or Not Friday!
Sorry to be so slow responding, but I love your versions of these quilts. You do wonderful things with color!
