Here we go again...

The once emptied basket is now full again. This time all the quilts were started in this decade!
Eight quilts tops ready and waiting to be quilted. These are tops that I made in the last 3-4 months. They are all now sandwiched and pinned.

I LOVE starting a new quilt.
I LOVE selecting fabrics and making a plan.
I LOVE seeing how that plan changes as I get into it.
I LOVE seeing it all come together.
That is where the love affair is put on hold because I don't LOVE to quilt them. I have a new machine with a bigger throat, which makes it much easier, but still not fun to me. Thank goodness that I also LOVE hand stitching my binding or I might not ever make it through the quilting stage.


  1. How on earth did you finish 8 quilt tops in the last 3-4 months?! It was all I could do to finish 12+ quilts last year.

    1. Wait until you see the quilts... Mostly baby quilts and nothing too complex.

  2. I noticed the Brother in your sewing studio. Is it new?
