Piles of FINISHED quilts!

In August, I began getting serious about my quilt piles – the to-pin, to-quilt, and to-bind piles. I had all of these finished quilt tops that needed to be sandwiched and quilted. Most are donation quilts and they just needed to be done!

As I finished quilts, I shared a few pictures in August herehereherehere,  September hereherehereherehere, and October here

After finishing the 5 quilts that the grandchildren made while we were in Virginia, I really got BUSY. It was a full-time job - morning, noon, and night - almost every free moment. And now EVERY FINISHED QUILT TOP IN THIS HOUSE IS A FINISHED QUILT except one that I purposely kept back in the to-quilt pile! Whew!

ELEVEN more finishes! I worked diligently with a single goal in mind – no knitting, no reading, and absolutely no beginning new quilts. I did fix meals, dehydrate food, do laundry, and pay bills. Last week, I needed to clean and my very sweet DH said he’d clean while I quilted! Most hours of most days were spent in the sewing studio.
Eleven finishes 

This old body cannot sit and quilt much more than an hour at a time. So every so often I would take a break and work on pinning another quilt. Then I ran out of quilts to pin and I still needed breaks. So I began cleaning, really deep cleaning, my sewing studio. Hard to believe that I have the quilts finished AND a super clean studio.

I'll share photos of the eleven quilts in the next post.

Doesn't look like I'll have much time to quilt for a week or so - the State Volleyball meet, mission pies to make for the church, friends to meet...  And we have yearly physicals today. We just saw test results online and Ray is still cancer-free. We are blessed. Life is good! 


  1. Wow! You have been busy! I have been trying to re-organize parts of my sewing room. It sure does take lots of time. I've also been cleaning house (deep cleaning). That leaves me with almost no sewing time (and lots to get done before Christmas). Enjoy your break.

  2. Wow, you HAVE BEEN BUSY! Good for you ... I'll bet you feel good to have them all done. And I was,thrilled to hear that Ray is still cancer free. You have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

  3. Good grief, now I feel like a slug! :) blessings, marlene

  4. It's so wonderful that Ray is still cancer free! That is really wonderful. Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
