FINALLY....progress

With it being 55 here at home Monday afternoon, I so wanted to be outside.





But instead, I forced myself to finish up the quilting on this quilt and sew the binding on to the fronts of 2 quilts:






So last night I worked on handsewing the binding down on the baby quilt while we watched 24. And while Jessie was at her first soccer practice for the spring season.

Then I washed the baby quilt for our friends (and was up until 12:15 waiting for it to come out of the washer. But I used the basting spray on it and it is red so I didn't want to send it off stinky and with a chance it could bleed when she washes it).

Tyler was not real thrilled that I was using "his" fabric - and that I didn't put the dalmation print on the back of his quilt. I think I'm going to go back and buy the rest of the bolt of dalmation print if it's still on sale - for the second firefighter twin size quilt I am making.


But it's done and it's on it's way - 2 more to go.

Tonight night Todd has fire practice again, so I am going to work on my Bears in the Farmhouse quilt. The deadline for this next step is next Monday - so I'd better get a move on it.

Here's to a 66 degree day that we are supposed to have today!

You are making progress all the way around........ Aren't finishes the best.

It is hard to work inside when the weather starts to be pleasant outside.

I am looking forward to seeing your progress on your Bear Quilt.
