Mired in odd and ends

     I feel like I am slogging in slow motion. I am attempting to finish a whole bunch of languishing projects. I finished sewing our guild's mystery quilt and so the top is done. The reveal is not until January, so I am only showing the center block on the off chance someone from the guild looks at my blog. I am trying to cut and kit together about 9 other projects to take to our guild retreat next week so I all I will have to do is sew a lot of these UFOs together. So, math is involved and scrounging fabric and wondering what the heck I was doing the last time I worked on it. 

      Someone from the guild asked me to quilt her veterans quilt for our deadline on Monday. I sort of forced it in and for the life of me, I can not just quilt long lines all over. I chalk them in, and just can't do it- I have to add other things in each area. I used Military Gold glide. I did not trim it as she was going to trim and bind it. Hard to quilt someone else's quilt.

Sorry, not enough light to take a good photo of the back

Love what you've shown of the quilt Linda, it sound like you're having a very busy time - enjoy the retreat!

That's lots and lots of work.....just a beautiful job! Sounds like you need the retreat time to restore your energy cells.

Your "pebbles" look great! I want to learn to do those someday.

You did a great job on the QOV quilting!! I understand the struggle you feel about quilting someone else's quilt. I much prefer quilting items that I have made from start to finish!

Terrific quilting!!!!! The devil is always in the details (aka the odds and ends). I get it.
