So Close!!

I am so close to finishing my 2 Braided Irish Chain's.   I got the bindings all prepped and now I just need to get them sewn onto the quilts.  And I know you are thinking that will take forever to do . . . but remember, I don't hand stitch bindings thanks to my horrible hand stitching skills and my lack of patience. (And honestly, I think the bindings are more durable when machine done and durable is huge around this house :)  These have been a long time in the works so I am so happy to just about move them to the Completed part of the WIP List.

And since I am just about finished with those two . . . I figured it was probably time to cut out my next WIP.  I love Marmalade!!  This is going to be a lot of piecing but I think it will go really fast.  I am super excited to see how this one turns out :)

And I was having so much fun cutting, I just kept going, cutting into my Simply Color pre-cuts.  Ah, these vibrant colors just make me smile.  Can't wait to start piecing!

I have to say . . . I think this is the best my list has looked in a while.  I almost feel like things are sort of in control, sort of :)  But don't worry, I am sure the soon approaching holiday's will throw a wrench into all of that :)

  2. I'm really loving all of your projects! Looks like you are on a roll...

  3. ohhh, I can't wait to see what you are doing with Marmalade and Simply Color but I realllllly want to see that Hello Luscious quilt!

  4. The Irish chains look gorgeous! Well done for getting all that cutting done!

  5. I like your To Do listing style. Think I will embrace that method to keep myself ON TRACK. Distraction is both a blessing and a curse. Some of my best ideas for new projects come when I am chain piecing 482 HSTs... ;)
    And I love Irish Chains. I can hardly wait to see it bound. Thank you for sharing.

  6. I also love how you organized your list at the bottom of your post. What a great way to visualize what you would like to do. The Irish Chain is beautiful and the fabrics you have chosen for your next projects are very nice. I can't wait to see them as they progress! :)

  7. I love, love, love your Irish chains. Good luck on your new projects.

  8. It looks beautiful, can't wait to see it with the binding on! Those cut fabrics look great!

  9. It likes a lot of good times will be spent sewing those beautiful fabrics!
