Last week, I shared these 3 quilt top finishes that I worked on while "retreating". Well, this weekend, I made them quilt backs and found their bindings (I always make those at the beginning of a project) and took them over to the "To Be Quilted Closet".

Happy Quilting Marathon
And as I hung them, I realized there were a lot of Quilt Tops, Quilt Backs, and Bindings just waiting to be made into finished quilts. These are all the quilts that I have made in the last little while (read few years as at least two are from 2018) that don't have "deadlines". And so here they sit, and can you believe it, they have added up to 26!!! 26 that is like a literal Marathon of Quilts!!!
And then it hit me, why not have my own Happy Quilting Marathon!!!! I really think if I give these a deadline and share it here, well then, I am bound to actually quilt and finish these :) So here is my plan . . . each week for the next 26 weeks, I will finish and share a quilt from the "To Be Quilted Closet". I have made up this little tracker to keep my motivated, and each week I will add a picture in the box so in the end, I can see them all together ;)
And I have a huge reward planned at the end. On October 3rd, right at the conclusion of the Happy Quilting Marathon, I get to set sail on the Aloha Hawaii Quilting Cruise hosted by Stitchin' in Heaven!!! Talk about Motivation :) Have you ever done a quilting cruise?? They are oh so much fun!!! Sadly, this one filled up as soon as it was opened, but there are lots of others to check out if you are interested :)
So here is to 26 weeks of Happy Quilting!! Wish me Luck and please help Keep me Accountable :)
I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!
