So close yet so far.....

I have gotten so much quilting finished this past week and I can't show any of it!  I am really close on several projects. 

* I spent the entire weekend working on a baby quilt that is supposed to go to the new Mommy-To-Be this coming Sunday.  The top is finished and hope to layer it and start quilting this evening. The Married One reads my blog and works with the new mommy.  I don't want her to accidentally show it to her! I'll post it after the baby shower.

* I only have the binding to go on another quilt.  Gotta find the fabric I bought for the binding first.  Sure hope I didn't use it for something else!

* I have only a square foot of quilting to do on another quilt then the binding!  What am I waiting for?!

* Finished the Gail Pan Christmas Wish blocks but didn't take a picture yet. I'm pretty sure how I am going to finishe this one but it will take a good bit of prep work.

*Cleaned the sewing/dining room so well that if we wanted to eat dinner at the table, it would only take me 10 minutes to get the sewing out of there.  I couldn't say that before!



Here is a picture that I can show.  I finished the first month of my Thoughts of Christmas BOM that I received from Paula the Quilter.  The next two months will be a little rough with two rows of paper pieced trees and houses with a gazillion pieces to each house!  But it's a good start.  I am making it with all Thimbleberries fabric.  I have so much of it!  I have all the backgrounds picked for each month and a stash of red, greens and golds picked out for me to draw my other pieces from.



Blessings, Cathi

You have been busy. Love those starts but I don't love paper piecing.
