    I hardly ever hand bind my quilts, especially the baby ones because I know they'll be washed a lot. Have you ever tried binding entirely by machine? It speeds up the process quite a bit.

    I don't know where any tutorials are, but I'm sure they exist. I learned out of the book "Modern Quilt Workshop".

    Here's the lap top I'm working on tonight... the photos I posted of it before didn't show true colors at all. Let me see if the ones I took today will show it more true.

    Blue back... it's the water to keep the rose garden hydrated. ;-) This one shows it best--it's more yellowy than the top one.

    This one has been done for a long time, except, the, um binding.

    Here's another...Rhyme Time. I love the echo quilting (not shown in this photo) and it has a pretty green binding now. :-)

    I am both impressed and inspired. I am so close to meeting a similar goal, and this will inspire me to create and put the binding on the last quilt...THEN I can start another!!

    Good for you! (and thanks for the inspiration....I don't mind sewing binding on, but I really don't seem to care for creating the binding, which, I know, takes much less time.)

    What an impressive amount of work. You should be proud of yourself. You deserve the reward you have planned for yourself. I will be starting the finishing process in a little over a month from now--that's when my classes are finished and I get to finish all the projects. Wish me luck.

    Thanks. That was made with panel blocks with leftover blocks from a quilt called Basket Weave. I love it so much, I'm saving it for grandkids--when they show up. Plus, I didn't want to sell it because one fabric had some flaws.. I'm glad so it made the keeper decision easy. ;)

    Way to go! I need to get more motivated too. It's just that there are so many great patterns and beautiful fabric that distracts me. lol. By the way, I'm drooling over your beautiful fabrics too.

    You have quite a goal ... I always say there is nothng wrong with a machine sewn binding!! Especially when you get to move onto the parts of the process you like best.

    I'd say you have accomplished a monumental chore already. To think that you had all those tops done is a lifetime of work for some people.

    Congratulations.... It's a good feeling isn't it? Giving you encouragement to get the others done. After all you did... the last ones should go quickly.

    I did not have that many in the works but signed up for the UFO thread to do one once a month. I made January.... Have been working on one all of Feb. but since I was sick I didn't get that one finished. It will be done this week. Heck.. maybe today if I get my butt out of this chair. LOL

    Then I have to tackle my big King size one that the rows sewed together all wonky and I tore it all apart. That's the big project.

    If I could get that many UFO's finished, I would definitely consider it earth shattering news ! Good job !
