    I'm finishing up some table toppers and runners. One the binding is almost finished, 3 are ready for quilting and one more to put together then quilt. I also want to get started on a baby quilt I need to have done for the first weekend in January. Such a fun (busy) time!

    Sewing the last section of rows are the kimono quilt, then finish quilting it, then finally, the binding. I didn't think I'd ever finish this.LOL
    Of course, it's not finished yet, but I should have it pretty well close to done.

    I'm working on quilting my best friend's quilt. I decided to try something new and not use batting, just fleece for the backing. Going well so far.
    I also have to get a move on my father's Christmas quilt. It's a storm at sea pattern, in red yellow and orange, and a really awesome guitar print flannel for the backing. I've had the backing for 8 months now, but I'm still working on piecing the top, lol!

    This is how the kit arrived. The strips for the 4 patches are already cut as well as the 6 1/2" blocks and the strips for the borders. This will enable me to sew it cause cutting the strips would be difficult at best. I'm so glad that it is pre-cut, otherwise I would have to wait a little while to be able to sew it together. I won't be able to quilt it for a couple of weeks though.

    Loretta -
    How do you restore a quilt. I wouldn't know where to start. Do you add pieces in the worn spots or do more of a mending techniques like stitching down any torn areas?

    Jim's Gem -

    That is a very cute kit for your quilt for kids. I am so excited to get mine.

    I had to work, too. Starting tomorrow I will be sewing like crazy. The quilt I just finished for my son(I will try to figure out how to post a pic) is at the quilters, so I will have to bind it. I am STARTING a quilt for my daughter and her new husband, a christmas quilt depicting our Christmas Eve traditions, it is an easy pattern that I hope to finish in a couple of days. I will also be starting a tiny quilt with hand embroidery for my sister, in honor of sisterhood that will be put in a shadow box with some pictures. If it weren't for all of you admitting to such craziness, I sure wouldn't have listed all of this!!! We are a rare breed, us quilters!

    I went into school today and finished three more chapters in Keyboarding so that I would get an A instead of B. School is officially over for this semester, but teacher said we had until 4 today to get work in that counted toward our grade. I really wanted that A.

    However, Saturday I will be working on finishing up the Nov/Dec quilt.

    Have to make a curtain for my laundry room so the cats stay off the tops of the machines.

    Then there is a candle mat I am EPP that is turning out nicely.

    I will be off until Jan. 19, so I intend to get lots done.

    Oh, and I guess at some point I should decorate the tree. LOL
