2nd not pieced by me

Funny how I can be reading something, stop, and turn to my sewing machine. That's right-I was reading about many of you promising to read online less, and therefor sew more-when it occurred to me-I too needed to stop and get something done. So, last night I stopped and got one side of this binding stitched on. This morning-I stopped and finished the other side and that enabled me to post a photo and new post. This is the 2nd quilt sandwich by Evelyn, one of our Portland Piecers members that is a topper-most of her tops I end up quilting and binding. Finn-do any of these look familiar to you?? I spotted several fabrics that I have in my stash as well...so..not sure where these fabrics/blocks came from but I love the result! Now, I can go on to the next thing-guilt free. Tomorrow our group meets and it will be nice to have both of these for show and tell-they were basted at the last months meeting. I picked up another quilted top by a fellow member that needs trimming and binding added. There were also 2 more donated tops left.
I think I am going to tackle those tomorrow at the meeting.
Next up is cutting-I want to follow up on what little remained from my cutting party a week ago with Patti, and then pull and cut for the twin quilts on my new stash busting list. I have signed up for a quilt til you wilt session next Saturday evening. My goal is to have these ready to stitch by then. I will be pulling my most loved bright fabrics for these quilts...I can hardly wait! So, that carrot is there-once I finish cutting the scraps...dive into my brights.

Oh, that's right! I'm not supposed to be on the computer right now, am I? Not during prime quilting time. I'm working on Judy's challenge quilt this weekend and hope to get the Hour-a-Day cut so I can start sewing on it Monday. Busy, busy. Bustin' stash. LOL!

What a fun quilt, Cher!

I've learned to allot myself time to do what I want to do. I may spend 30 minutes reading blogs and then 45 - 60 minutes sewing or some other activity. It's not as rigid as it sounds, but does allow me to enjoy a little bit of all of my activities.

Good for you for getting off the computer and getting the binding sewn on these pretty quilts. Yeah, I need to do that...
