I'm taking a short break from sewing swoon blocks.
I felt the need to finish something.
Hey, why not quilt one of the four tops I've made in the past year? I even had a pieced backing for this one ready to go.
Oh, it feels good to be quilting something.
Details: Stacked coins quilt made with leftover fabrics from my first stacked coins quilt .
More on this quilt to come.

The first step is to list those projects. Unfortunately I've only photographed one of said quilt tops (another reason to start blogging again - better documentation!). So here it is, my finished HST quilt top. It's made with Anna Maria's Good Folks fabrics (hmmmm, lovvvvve that fabric line) and kona cotton in sand I think. It was a bear to piece and took a very long time. I think that's why it became a ufp, I needed a little break from it after sewing the last seam. My goal is to have this quilted by the en of the summer. I'm realistic that way.
More unfinished quilts to share later! Oh because there are always more!

Lately, as I read blogs of other sewers with young children, I wonder, how do they find the time to sew??? I feel a little jealous. But then I realize they must make the time, or claim the time. Which is what I am trying to do now. A few minutes here, a couple more there, every minute counts.

Here is one of three blocks completed so far. My goal is to complete the top in the next two weeks and have it quilted and binded so I can hand deliver it to her in July. I have a lot of work to do!
