FINISHES!!!

I am trying so hard to finish up projects as I start them so I don't add to my UFO pile.....

So...here is the Beehive....


It is done....(doing the dance....)...



I have this binding ready to sew down and that will happen tonight. I can not begin to say how much I love that Binder Bobbin.....makes life so much easier. You will see the front of this quilt soon...






Here is my bright funky quilt,....




I felt it needed a bright funky back....and so I had this Samoan Fabric....need I say more????I have one more quilt that needs binding and then off to quilting again. Robin dropped by my email today and said she had alot of bindings to do, I suggested a binding party but I had already started on my bindings....maybe another day.

Hi Barb you are just a little workhorse these days, tell me your secret. It was so hot in my sewing area (bedroom) even though I have air conditioner that I kept following to sleep.
I love the colors in the tumbler quilt. I have just about finished two tops then I will have to quilt them. Do you give a lot of projects away as gifts? I am doing a mystery block of the month and this will be the first one for me.
I really enjoy seeing all of your projects. Blessings Sandra

Good for you! What a good finisher. I love that samoan fabric for the back, really makes teh qhole quilt pop!

Your beehive quilt is so cute! I love it and the backing on the Groovy little quilt is perfect for it. Two cute finishes! I have to admit, if I quit being a folder, maybe I would get more done! I see I'm not the only one that folds though. Have fun with your Go. Yes, mine has started multiplying in the daylight too...
