progress report #2

It is now Thursday July 29th at 4:30 MST and I would like to report that I now have 3 and 1/2 quilts out 5 quilted!!!

It would have been 4 by now but I think my machine was tired yesterday and kept giving me grief so I had to quit early last night.

I am not sure if I will get around to number 5 tomorrow.  It is queen size and has to be sandwiched still, but I will give it a go! 

The biggest triumph was teaching my friend how to free motion quilt (FMQ). Now that she knows how,  she is thrilled with the little projects she is finishing up. I might add she is doing very well too.

We each had a machine going and my daughter #1 would join in too on my other machine, working on her rag quilt. It was like a mini retreat.

While my machine was resting I managed to finish all the bindings on my new placemats and made some more hexies.

cross your fingers I get some more quilting in tonight!


  1. Wow. That's impressive. Even if you don't finish that last one, you've finished an incredible amount this week.

    So, when are you going to post your finishes!!??

  2. Wow, I need a week like this, Congratulations, I bet it feels great to get so much accomplished, PLUS it sounds like you're having fun at the same time. Quilting, binding on placemats AND hexies....your productivity puts me to shame! Hope all went well tonight!
