Finishes come slowly

     There is too much to do in so little time. I am sorting scraps and  cleaning out the backlog of them in my garage. Grand kid sitting, cardio rehab, and non-sewing duties quickly diminish available time. I have 4 baby quilts to do for Jack's Basket by next Sunday. Two are quilted, two are on the longarm. The Diagonal Variation quilt sat on the longarm for over a month and finally was done. All have striped bindings, done. The OBW octagons finally got a border, but needs quilting. My floral colorwash is still being tweaked on the design wall. I am not a good multi-tasker, so it goes slowly.

The sewing machine is a phony- it is a planter. I finally brought it back outside after winter.
It has a succulent planted in the tray.

With border fabric, black on black octagons, couldn't resist

Wonderful finishes! Finding time to sew is difficult at times - but even slow progress is progress - and better than no progress at all - LOL - ;))

Your OBW turned out great! Multi tasking seems harder than it used to -- so I'm trying not to do so much of it these days. Focus feels better.

That is a lot to handle all at one time. I think you are making great progress on your projects.

With all you have going on, celebrate any progress and let the rest wait in line. The baby quilts are adorable.

Cool planter. Lots of nice quilts. Those deadlines sometimes get to be too much.

I had to zoom in to see all your quilting on the EC quilt. I love it! And your border is really spot on. Neat to see the blocks float with it.
