Quilters Accountability 5/26/10

Well, it's the final week of the Spring Finish!!!  Time to get those last few projects done for reporting on Monday.  The good news is that I am thisclose to another finish and hope to get at least one more done before deadline. 

Last week's goals:

1.  Finish the quilting and bind the Charming Log Cabin quilt.  Almost done.  The quilting in the center is finished.  Unfortunately I couldn't get great shots of it.  Hopefully when the quilt is completely finished I can get some better ones.

The top and bottom borders (with the squiggly "Princess Woo" fabric) are grid quilted and will then have a (traditional) scallop edge cut into (out of?) it before binding.  I will finish the grid quilting on the bottom edge tonight.  Even though it's simple to do, it is a bit tedious and therefore time consuming. I still have to decide on the binding (it will probably be the blue stripe on the bias) so I'm not expecting to tackle that until tomorrow or Friday.

2.  Layer and quilt the Dino Sports2 quilt for charity donation.  Didn't get to this one but......

This week's goals:
  1. Quilt last border of Charming Log Cabin quilt, bind.
  2. Layer and baste Dino Sports 2 quilt, quilt, bind and make a pillowcase.
  3. Add border trim and outer borders of Paisley Crumb quilt, layer to backing, quilt and bind.

The Dino Sports 2 quilt and  pillowcase (on the left) will be donated to the Basics Quilt Gather (click the button on the sidebar for details) charity drive when completed.  I am expecting it to be quick to quilt since I'm not planning to do anything fancy with the stitching or finishing.  I decided to throw the Crumb quilt into the mix this week as well.  It too would be simple to finish because the blocks will only be outline stitched.  If I can get these two done (whether by the Spring Finish deadline or after), I will only have one flimsy from 2009 still left to quilt and that means I will feel alot less guilty when I start some new projects!

While I put my nose back to the grindstone, you can head over to Bari's to see what everyone else got done this week.

I love your quilting on this quilt! Beautiful and gives it a lot of texture.

You did get a lot done this week. Way to go! I can't believe you are getting close to having all your 2009 UFOs/starts finished. That is incredible!

I can't believe you are almost finished with your 2009 UFOs/starts. I am impressed! WOW! (Can you tell I am speechless?)

Way to go!
