    take two and then you will know to stay focused. One you just may finish, but two will keep you busy so you can finish both. Tricks with the mind.

    That's very good advice! It would be great to finish two! But I will be happy if I finish one!

    Finished my Cottage Flowers quilt yesterday and GOOD RIDDANCE!!

    The quilting was poor. I did it on my small machine and I had some fullness in some blocks which, with quilting, gave me some tucks and bumps near the seams. My quilting friends say it isn't that bad but it bothered me.
    I wanted to rip out the quilting and start over but decided it was too much work.
    I will use it as a utility quilt.....maybe keep it in the car.

    I have started to quilt the next top and it's going much better.
    After that, I have two smaller tops to quilt and then I can get started on a
    new pattern...probably a sampler....looking forward to that.

    Ranger, Perfection is overrated. Celebrate your color and pattern choice. I'm sure it will keep you warm. And with each finish, you will get better and better. I'm right along with you, I don't love my quilting and it is hard to achieve the results I want on a small domestic machine. But, at some point, I will figure out a method of quilting that works best for me. So, until then I am trying to accept the best I can do for now. And celebrate my choice of color,pattern and enjoyment of quilting.

    So Keep up the good work. And post pictures so we can oo and ah. (or have i missed the posting) I will go back and check.

    Have a wonderful Easter everyone!!

    Judith, thanks for the pep talk.
    I usually keep this kind of stuff in perspective but this one really bothered me.

    The one I am quilting now is moving along smoothly so I am feeling much better about things.

    My camera is broken and I won't be able to get it fixed just yet.

    Happy Quilting!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    A few more done!

    Yeah...I got several more quilts totally finished! Several were scrap leader/enders put together, the others I had the tops done. Took a week, but they are all quilted & finished & ready for new homes! I hope to finish the last one I'm working on tomorrow before going to DD for Easter dinner. Happy Easter everyone!

    Wow, VickiM, Awesome finishes. Are these quilts ear marked for anyone special or do you donate your quilts. From soft colors to bright colors, These are GREAT. I also love the simple patterns. It lets the fabric shine.
