Almost Ready . . .

With Market less than a week away, you can bet I have been stitching up a storm.  Remember my Bitty Bits Mini from March that was going to have friends . . . Well I finished piecing up 2 such friends yesterday ;)  Now they just need to be quilted and bound.  I will be using these for one of my book signings to show how easily you can mix this pattern up with a variations of solids and prints ;)

And, I was super happy to find when I finish these two above mini's and the step out boards for making them,  all I have left is a table runner (which is half way pieced) and my Snapshots block that will be posted while I am gone!!!!   I made this list last week because I couldn't keep track of it all in my head anymore, and it is so much fun to see what I did in a week!!!!  Does anyone else just love making "To-Do" lists just for the sheer joy of checking things off ;)    Oh, and if you notice, at the very bottom I added Mailing my Irish Chain Quilt Book Pre-Orders yesterday, because it looks like they will arrive before I leave!!!  Yippee!!!

In fact, I am actually feeling so good about almost being all ready for Market, that I have decided to switch gears a little today and quilt up this Hazel Quilt!!!   Remember those squares I showed of Hazel last month.  Well I have had the quilt top done for 2 weeks but had to set it aside to get on top of market deadlines.   And I am so excited to get to finish it up.  Maybe, it will even be ready in time for Finish it Up Friday tomorrow ;)

I am off to a Happy Quilting Day, and I hope you have one as well!!!

Pin It!
