I have noticed that the quilts I made eons ago are wearing out. It's time to make new, finish started ones and quilt tops made and sitting.
I gathered them up into piles and will sort them and put backings with them and send to people who machine quilt who can do them quickly.
I am not a fan of tied quilts because they don't hold together well with a lot of wear because the ties come untied, the batting shifts etc- wishing now I had not sold my A1 quilting machine 9 years ago! I would love a Gammill but its just not in my budget.
The smaller quilt tops I will machine quilt on my old Bernina, but anything larger than baby size will have to be sent out.
there are over 22 tops and cheater quiltson the ironing board, some fell onthe floor! lol
These were in moms fabric tubs when I started going through them Monday- one is a Christmas panel with a border, one is a scrap quilt about twin size and the other is a Queen//King sized HUGE block Dresden pattern that will need a border and then quilted.
Here is a picture pile of the 7 quilts waiting for binding- have I mentioned that I HATE binding quilts?
These quilts my mom made and I will bind and send to her youngest great grandkids who don't have a quilt from her. I began quilting at 16 making baby quilts for my hopeless chest. When I married in 1981, my MIL showed me how to quilt for "real" and I have been addicted since. I even had a little country quilt shop at my home.
When my first marriage went bad in the late 90s' I stopped sewing all together as nothing I did was good enough or right for him and I couldn't take the stress. After marrying Kay I have avoided a lot of sewing for other interests and finishing raising kids- but that is about to change!
I hope seeing my multiple projects inspires you to conquer a few of your own, please leave your comments and thoughts here on this post or future posts.
thanks for stopping by~ check back tomorrow for Cards I made this week!
