Quilters Accountability 5/19/10

Sorry for the late post but I NEEDED to finish up an important part of last week's goals -- mentally, I just didn't want to take it into the next week.  So without further ado.....

Last week's goals:

1.  Construct clamshell binding, attach and finish detail quilting on Vintage Treasures quilt.  Today I finished handsewing  the backing to the binding edge so for the most part this project is in the can for Spring Finish!  I still have some detail stitching to finish but I'll do that tonight or first thing tomorrow and do a detail post on the whole project later.

2.  Start and complete the quilting on Charming Log Cabin.  The quilting was started but I'm not sure I like the stitch pattern I chose.  I need to look this one over, decide on the continued course of action and finish this up next week.

3.  Finish the last two blocks of the Pioneer sampler.  Done and now all the blocks for the sampler are done (last two are in the bottom row, right).  And I finally found a border fabric too (underneath the blocks).  I was supposed to be making these with two other quilters but one has gone down south for the summer and the other hasn't started hers, so I don't know if I'll move forward with this (after the Spring Finish challenge is over, of course!) or hold the finishing until the Fall.  We'll see.

So once again, keeping it light for the next week:
  1. Finish the quilting and bind the Charming Log Cabin quilt.
  2. Layer and quilt the Dino Sports2 quilt for charity donation.
That's it for now, dinner is waiting!  If you've already finished your dinner, check out what's on other quilter's "To Do" lists at Bari's blog.

I love the Vintage Treasures quilt. I haven't ever seen a clam shell border before either - it is pretty! How do you do the clam shells? I can understand not wanting to carry that into another week....LOL.

Your pioneer sampler is looking great!

You are getting a lot done. Way to go!

Love that you do hand binding even when feeling like time is running out. Now looking can admire your work once again!
