Things to do This Weekend.....Bind, Bind, Bind....

Use your imagination for a little while and picture these ready-to-work-on quilts.  I set them up with the ingredients....the final products are still in the oven....

With my one of my bi-monthly quilty meetings coming up next Monday...here is what I would like to get done....

.....Prepare the 3 layers of the tractor quilt so it can be tied...




 and take 2 layers of the cheater quilt (top and bottom) to see if they have anything to use in the middle (big, queen size + quilt)




========================

  I am planning to make a binding for my pink/green/white top for later use.  If I make the binding now, I will know how much fabric is left so I can play with it without worrying if I will have enough.  It's approximately 85 x 110 inches....that's practically 400+ inches needed for the binding....






All my Mystery Quilt needs now is.......another binding... do you begin to get the picture of when I slow down and what job I really don't like to do?????

But then, if I really didn't like to do it,,,I wouldn't be a quilter, would I???

Finally, the small Birthday Wall Hanging is also awaiting it's binding....a simple and quick job, once I decide what to use...

So, I really need to get started because after this Monday at least one of the first two will be ready to be bound also.

Besides, I am ready to start work on a couple of more projects.....

Always thinking ahead....

Pictures of the final two when everything is done....

Love all the fabrics. Funny how we all complain about some aspect of quilting but as you say if we really didn't like it we wouldn't be doing it. I love being able to fill my time and have something lovely at the end.
