Where is the time going?

Summer is coming to an end soon.  Kids are getting ready for school.  I feel like time is flying by me and I am getting nothing done.
I did finish the QOV quilt top and of course it is a challenge quilt again, but I just can't wait 10 months to share it with you so here is a bigger peek at it. 
I literally  used up all my Americana scraps and even had to buy a few more pieces to get it done. 
I will be attending the Grand Rapids AQS show later this week and will be looking for something to back this quilt and just maybe I can have this one 100% done WAY BEFORE it is due. I even cut out the binding tonight. 
I, also, got some mail this week. 
I used a gift certificate that I got from Nancy at Christmas time  for the Fat Quarter Shop and ordered this.
There's nothing like getting a Christmas present in August!!!
Aren't these yummy?
I don't think I will be running out of piecing thread for awhile. 
Well, I need to start thinking of what I am going to pack for Grand Rapids. 
I should have some pictures to show you when I get back. 
Have a great week!
