Two Done, Few Pics

Well, I got two quilts finished finished this week.  One had been sitting binding unturned for a few months, the other I really just started last week.  It’s funny the projects that suck you in and you just have to start to finish, while others that you want to make, have been on your radar for months (or years) sit partially finished for a while.

The one I blazed through is my secret project (all can be revealed next week), it was all set, binding turned yesterday.  It really could stand a run through the wash, but I haven’t decided whether or not to do that as it is a gift for my husband, so it won’t be going anywhere, and can be washed anytime.

The long-timer was a wedding gift for mIMG_2697y husband’s cousin who got married in June (not bad, just 2 months after the wedding), it was all set to go binding on, just needing to be turned, I believe in early May, and I just never sat down and did it.  Well, today I did, and stuffed it in a box and sent it on its way. 🙂  I, of course, assumed that I already had pictures of it so I didn’t shoot the big “ta-da” shot…  grrr…  I am always doing that to myself.  But you can see other pics here and here.  Oh and here’s one that I didn’t blog before.  I can’t imagine why that rumpled mess wasn’t on the blog…;)  I also found an up close of the awesome variegated thread that I used for the quilting from Connecting Threads.  That’s the Featured Image, which doesn’t always work the way it’s supposed to, but…

Anyway, that’s what I have been working on.  I am planning on basting and quilting my Baby Strip Race and I have a TON of quilts in the closet that need to be quilted as well.  (Ok, a ton is hyperbole, but there are at least 6-7.)

So keep your scissors sharp and Piece!
