Another Quilt Bound...Yay!

I'm thinking 2012 must have been a harder year than I remember, because that's when I started LOTS of 
quilts but never finished them. This one was quilted way back in 2012 by Quilted Works and stuck in a
box with no binding. I'm not really crazy about it, but I do LOVE the quilting and the fabric. 
At least I learned to make some new blocks and I used some leftover pieces of a Moda Layer Cake. 
I only have one more quilt to bind and then I'm done with the quilts that only needed binding. Yay!



My next stash clean-up will include finishing partially made quilts.
After that, time to get rid of patterns that have never been used. There's lots of them!

Your 'clean up' plan sounds like a good one. I think it is a wonderful quilt!

lovely quilt, I did a tutorial once out of these riley blake fabrics, loved them, and it was "tricky" that they were directional a lot.

Very nice. Its is always a good feeling to get a UFO out of the closet and done. I have a few of those that need a little attention. You are inspiring ... :) Pat

Yippee for you. Another finish is always a good thing.

A girl on a mission! I love it. And I love the quilting. I recognize that pattern - Pretty Posies. I use it a lot of times on customer quilts.

I think the quilt turned out very nice. Love the fabric in it.
I have been doing the cleaning up too. Congratulations on your progress.

I don't start a new quilt until I've finished the current one, so this is mindboggling to me how your can put away a quilt that only needs binding! LoL I love how that light color binding around the black border looks. Now, stacks of patterns that will never get made...that's another story...those I have! :-)

One more finished and it is striking. The place I seem to get stopped at is putting quilt together but if I get as far as binding it gets done because I like to bind. That doesn't mean I don't have a few that needs finishing. Blessing Sandra

Congratulations Carol!! You are on a Mission with a Plan! And I Love the Patttern here!! With my New Machine I am finishing up Projects I started when I was renting machines and ran out of time. It does feel great to get these things done. The real down to earth quilting comes with "Rush Hour"~

Huggs, Nancy
