Thanks for the comments, it is fun and easy to make. Hope to finish one more top tomorrow so it does not become a UFO!
Then quilt one that has been layered so long I can't remember what the top looks like. . It is lightly folded with the backing showing so can't see the top. Been sitting on the "to do" pile since early April. Tee-Hee-Hee!

Wow, Petthefabric, you are being brutal with your sorting and downsizing. I was cleaning up my sewing space this morning so I would not be embarrassed when I host a Zoom meeting with my students tonight. Any way, I had to do make serious progress and if it was out the floor, out it went. No not yardage, but little scraps and snips that keep escaping and running all over the carpet. They are gone and the bag is on its way out the door. Ahhh, I feel better!

Congratulations, on your good work Pet and the rest of you too. I am thinking this week-end will be a sew the UFO week-end! Yeah!

VQW going on. More purging planned. Down to less than 10 UFO's. I promise on pinky honor to finish before starting another.

Accountability helps me stay on track and not get distracted. Round robbins fall into that catagory.

Finally finished! 99x99 batik quilt. Rejected by the long arm lady, I pillowcased it and TIED the beast. It will be a donation for Habitat for Humanity
Remainder of donation quilts will be for Project Linus. Why? Smaller and the organizer is nicer.

Story time- I felt strongly that I had so much that I needed to give back. I've always like Habitat as an organization and we have a strong chapter here that REHABS houses not build new. So I decided that would be my donation. Did a little online research - while this chapter hasn't done it - presenting quilts to new homeowner is not uncommon nation. So make the quilt. Contact donation coordinator. "Oh sure fine. Normally we don't but if you really want we will make an exception. We'd rather work with a guild than an individual because we want x number of quilts per year.". I don't expect falling down gratitude but I really don't feel appreciated either. But at this point I'm too stubborn to back out and who else would want something this huge. Anyway- that's why I won't donate quilts to Habitat in the future - but yes I will to Project Linus.

PS. Started to quilt next top. Decided to go for straight line because it's fast and the tops need to get *finished*

I'm sad they didn't have more enthusiasm.

Definitely not the reception you ever expect or want. Especially for the work you've put in.

It always feels better dealing with someone who is happy to see you coming. Keep up the great work and don't let this one incident get to you.
