Incredible yet pathetic

I started working on one (of three) bedrooms that are consumed with quilting paraphernalia and am shocked at what I found so far.  There are two smaller wallhanging/table topper sized quilts that are quilted and simply need binding as well as one larger quilt in the same condition 😕.  That's ridiculous that I leave things when they're almost done but what's worse is that there are at least 2-3 more (that I know of) in the same state. 




















And there's a set of 20 machine applique blocks (7 still need button hole stitched)  just waiting to be finished up and put into a quilt.  Ugh.  Problem with these is I no longer have a machine that does pretty button hole stitching.  I've offered them to someone I know that makes lots of donation quilts.  If she doesn't want them, I'll pawn gift them to someone else.  They'd make a great donation quilt to keep someone warm with just a little sashing and border.



















I've also (over) filled yet another bag of fabric for the church group.  Sure hope they don't get too mad! 😉

Maybe some of these just needing binding will be finishes in 2018...hope so!

How great to have fast finishes appear like magic in a bedroom! I didn’t know there was a difference to buttonhole stitching in different machines.

Oh my studio is like that...it hides stuff... in plastic bins.. I came across several tops that need to be quilted and a couple of projects that just need to be assembled or have a border put on... you have some pretties there and when it is their time to be done...they'll get done...

Hehe, I know our church quilting ministry never gets mad when new fabric shows up! Same goes for blocks and tops folks have grown tired of. Makes our job easier when someone gives us a head start!

Your hidden treasures are lovely. I hope you get the chance to get the binding on them.

Look at all that pretty!!! Those appliqué blocks are so nice, I love the fabric. You could whip on the binding for those others and have several 2018 finishes....just like that!!!
