WIPs With Friends

I actually have some things to share with all of you!  
Last weekend I decided that I was going to try to finish some WIPs from over the past few years. First up was to make bindings for the two quilts that are at the quilters.  

I was in a cleaning kind of a mood I guess.  
While cleaning and dusting the top of a dresser in my sewing room I found a WIP that I just kept cutting and adding to.  
I took all of those rectangles and cut a few more to make the number I needed to make a quilt top.  Then I started sewing them into rows.

Of course Finny was there to help me.

Next up I had this 2010 quilt top all finished but needed to put a backing together. 
 Well that is all done now and the quilt is ready to head to the quilter!

This is the stack of the green scrap quilt and the Christmas BOM quilt ready to go to the quilter.

I made another tea towel for a gift.

Hallie showed up to help me out.

Bindings for the Green quilt and the Christmas quilt.

Cole brought me his ball so we could play some fetch.

I worked on a little baby quilt but can't show it and this purple and yellow baby quilt that I also can't show you just yet.  BOTH of those are headed to the quilter!

I finally got a photo of the green quilt too.

I got to use some of my favorite fabrics in this top.

I also finished the binding for one of the baby quilts I can't show.
I still need to make the binding for the purple and yellow quilt though.

What are you working on?  I want to talk about some resolutions and goals for 2018 in a near future post too, so stay tuned.  Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts.

If you have some WIPs to share please link up!

ha ha ha!!! melissa and i just managed to finish our own Fat Quarter Shop Christmas BOMs from 2010, too! i dunno why we put the completed blocks away for seven years when the tops were just a few hours from being ready to quit ... anywho, they were bound, washed, and fluffed in time for Christmas ... and it took about two minutes to fill up the tub they were living in with more stuff to do...

I have been powering thru my stash of flannel. I got on a rag quilt jag a few years ago. Do you know how much lint flannel makes?!?!?! Once it's gone, I'm going back to my quilting cottons. My machine will thank me. I'm also hoping to do some kind of quilting challenge this year, other than finishing up my flannels.

Happy New Year! I missed your linky window for this week. Would you consider extending how long the link up is open? I don't always get time for blog reading on Wednesdays, but I do like to participate. You have TWO quilts at the quilters, do you? How exciting! Can't wait to see them once you get them back.
