So. I am back. I have 1,000,000 projects lined up to complete. Okay, maybe it's not really a million, but it sometimes feels like it. I haven't finished the project from Empty Spools, but I may finish it soon. Today we went shopping in Porterville, and I picked up 2 dozen little spools of Aurifil. They should be perfect to complete the background quilting, as well as replace some quilting done with Mettler. That quilting had some spit-up on the backside, and if I want to submit the quilt to Houston - goals are good! - it needs to be better than good. It needs to be as close to perfect as I can get.
I also have a quilt accepted to the upcoming Sacred Threads exhibit. It's an old quilt, that I made decades ago. But the thought behind it is strong, and as I said, it's been accepted. Now they want a GOOD photo, to include in the book. The quilt was a bit wonky, and I'd already decided to redo the binding if it got in. Now I have a solid deadline, with the book looming. It took three days to remove the binding. It wasn't done well, but it was certainly done in a manner meant to last for a century. yikes. I'm now in the process of putting it back in place. I'll share pictures, once it's done.
I've also got a stack of babies that need quilts. wait. Did that sound right? ;) Babies are arriving faster than their quilts are being made. Since Monday, I've popped out these three tops:
And with that, I should get back to it. I'm good at setting goals, but completing them? Well, it's time that I started moving the numbers on the log on the side of the blog. You know, the one that says what I've finished this year? It's been static since February. Not a good thing. Not good at all.
So. What are you working on? Something scrumptious? I hope so! Happy quilting!
