Finally got moving

Today I got some stuff accomplished..woohoo.   Good grief, I don't know why I procrastinate so long but I do.  I got the border on the found QOV today, made 3 more Big Nine blocks (have a total of 14 now), got the binding done for 3 quilts (just made, not on the quilt yet) and found another project near completion.  The bad thing about this one is I've been working on a new one--DUH!!!  I have this one almost finished and have two blocks in process!!  What I said before...pathetic.  Oh well, sad but true.

Now to get a back done for this one and get the other set of blocks together
 Look at that cute little sleeping kitten there...
 Have four more bindings to make and then sew them all on and then get a total of EIGHT handstitched down--GAH!
 Need to look at the book to see what's left on this one besides half square tri's for the bottom middle.  It would be great to hang in the living room during the summer if it's bigger!
WHEW!!

Whew is right. You might be sewing on bindings for a while. It will feel fantastic when you're done.

Looks like you are accomplishing a lot. Kudos to you! On the binding, I have started doing mine all by machine. Otherwise I would have a stack of quilts waiting. All my quilt,recipients love their quilt. That spells love to me. Just a suggestion.

Binding is easy and long as I have a movie to watch...thank goodness for Hallmark Channel during Christmas. Your projects are beautiful.

If you lived closer I would be thrilled to stitch down a binding or two, that is, hand stitching it to the back of the quilt after it's been machine stitched to the edges. I find that stitching very peaceful.

Your QOV quilt is beautiful and I especially like your applique blocks with the flags.
