This and that

Both baby quilts were delivered on Thursday.  Getting those done on schedule really motivates me.  I've finished three quilts already in 2019 - that's got to be a record for me!

So when I had a few minutes this evening, I got started pulling fabric for the #apqquiltalong.  But I can't just pull fabric without cutting it.  And I can't cut lots of fabric without sewing it.  So, while the instructions say to pull this week, cut next week, and start assembling the week after, I'm kinda doing it all at once.  Here's me playing around with what the outer border looks like.

I simultaneously made some progress on my Bonnie Hunter mystery Good Fortune quilt.  Slow and steady, and all that.

I'm hoping to get in a few more hours of sewing tomorrow, too.  I'll be out of town, traveling for work, from March 3 - March 17, so it is important to sew while I can.  While I am traveling, I can knit.  Of course, I could also prep some pieces of my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt, the one I started almost a decade ago...

So many projects, so little time!

I can understand how trying things out often gets in the way of prepping take-along work. Some things just won't let you stop. Congratulations on so many finishes. Handing them over to new owners gives great motivation as well.

Prepping kits takes so long. Have a safe trip.

Oh yeah, the Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt - I was working on mine at the RPQG retreat in Effinger was it? I have pictures of it from May '07. I only have 2 more full flowers and about 10 halves, and most of the whtes hexies to go on the outside, then I will be ready to figure out a border and quilt it. But like yours it is not at the top of my pile. Next on my list is one for Allie's baby due in 4 weeks, and one for oldest granddaughter who will be 13 next month.
