You are my role model! I still have to count what's undone in my sewing room.
I'm scared.

I can't wait. Thanks for sharing! And congrats. It is such a wonderful feeling of getting a lot done in a short amount of time!

Would that be hard to stay at an old project, and have to look at these beautiful fabrics setting there waiting! I absolutly love the colors!

I too, have 2 queen sized quilts to bind, and about 4 baby quilts to bind. I've put it off too as it is the last thing on my list to do - why? I don't care to bind a quilt as much as I love putting them together....

Happy days ahead in your near future - they are beautiful!

Don't those DONEs feel good.
I have been doing the same thing. I only have 2 finished 1 lap quilt and an applique quilt full size, one I am FMQing now that I made a Loooong time ago. I have 2 more bed size full/queen to do before I am allowed to start anything new.

I have found though, after all layering and quilting and after the forgotten things were taken care of (missed appliquéing on the horse's eyes and nostrils, the doll quilt's fmq flower needed more petals) that it's a time to straighten up the quilting room--get all the fabric back in place, pins in containers, and even the sewing machine dusted and oiled. And it's kind of nice to quietly sew bindings on in the evenings after spending the day with 24 10-11 year old and finishing chores. It feels like a kind of regrouping/recharging before I start making tops again. And what great anticipation it is to know they're all right there for me to dive into.

Let's see, there's the Bargello, and there's more floral log cabin projects, and the quilt I want to design with some horse batiks that were a gift, and the "Back to Nature" with the Modas, and the blue and white appliqué idea.... lots to do, lots to do!!! :-D
