WiP Wednesday - Basting edition!

So... I got a lot done this week! (I was going to say "I was a sewing machine this week" but... well, it is funny, but - you know...)

Anyway - I managed to finish the tops of: Halloween, Diamond Chain, and Twin Frolic.

!!!!!!!!!

Awesome!! So, today I had a massive basting party. See my sweet little helper?


I got Halloween, Diamond Chain, and Summer Series basted. I still need to baste Twin Frolic, and long lost Avignon Picnic.





I also managed to get Halloween quilted, and the binding stitched on, but have no pictures to show for it yet!

I will be out of town this weekend, but I am hoping to get all 5 tops quilted within the next week. I'm hoping, but not totally hopeful. We'll see! Wish me luck!!

Be sure to check out all of this weeks WiPs over at Freshly Pieced!

You are a quilting machine, or plan to be. Five tops? I can't even think that high for one week. I'll be looking forward to seeing all the fun on your blog.

Okay, you are just a basting overachiever! Thinking of quilting five quilts in a week makes my head ache. But I'm wishing you luck. And I can't wait to see the results!

You rock! I can't wait to see how you quilt all of them! I'm always looking for ideas!

Becky said...

oh wow, you were productive. I would have totally stalled if I were you. Basting and quilting is my least favorite part. I try to only have 1 quilt at a time at that stage!!
