Sew close!

I am *sew* close to having some finished tops!

I thought I was ready to put borders on the flannel quilt, but I measured and I need another row, then I can add the borders.

I found some border fabric for the 10 Minute Block throw, so just have to add those.

And, I went and bought more flannel to make another flannel quilt!  Yes, the goal was, and still is, to get that flannel stash used up, but I am making them for my nieces, so it’s not stash building!  At least, that’s the plan for now.  And they can’t both have the same quilt!  Not only that, a lot of the flannel I have left has baby prints and that is not really appropriate for a 7 year old, will be 8 year old by the time she gets the quilt.  So, I took advantage of the 50% off sale at JoAnn’s to add more variety and get the backs for both quilts.

I also took in a gorgeous customer quilt on Sunday, and can’t wait to see it finished!

What’s prompting me to clear out my stash is that I want to re-organize and/or remodel the Quilt Cave.  So I’m looking over my stash and feeling very blessed.

Dreams.  Oh, the dreams!

It's always great to meet other long arm quilters:) I am in SE Ohio. Lucky you to be closer to Innovations! I taught there one year, but it really is too costly for me to keep up with that end of the US. Right now I have to take time off to get the house and studio upgraded with flooring.
