Momentum is still at work.....

My little mini retreat last weekend got me motivated and the momentum is still at work.
I finished the baby chevron, machine quilted it and put the binding on....just needs a label.
Took this off the long arm Thursday.
I quilted it with "angel wings"
Friday night I got the binding on and hand stitched it down. 
Love my big dot backing. 
Then today, I got the ABC quilt top put together.
I have had these two fabrics (the red and the alphabet) in my stash for a good 5-6 years.  The red is called Little Apples by Aneela Hoey for Moda.  Can't wait to get this one on the long arm.  I have in mind what I would like to get for a backing, but I will have to see if I can find it.  So you will be seeing this one again soon, I hope. 
Also, today I cut up yardage (and I mean YARDAGE)  of a bright pink and orange "hibiscus" batik that will be the backing for my Hawaiian challenge quilt.  This quilt should be  third in line on the waiting list for the  long arm.  I can't wait to share this one with you. 
That's it for now.  Hope to keep this momentum up for awhile.  There are lots of projects in my sewing room calling my name. 
Happy quilting!

I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
