Road to completion...

Regarding last night's post, and some questions I received on the quilts-in-waiting...I figured it was time to make myself a list, and figure out what all needed to be done to finish the quilts.  Here goes:

  1. Soda Shoppe - have all supplies to finish and I know how I want to quilt it
  2. Terrain Swoon - need backing and binding fabric, need to figure out how I'm going to quilt it
  3. Coming Home Ruby - need to decide what to use for backing (started making backing ages ago, not sure if I still like it) and binding
  4. HST QAL - need to add final border, need backing and binding fabric and to figure out how to quilt
  5. Christmas quilt - have backing and binding fabric, need to figure out how I'm going to quilt it
  6. Scrappy Trip - need backing and binding fabric, and to figure out how to quilt
Not too shabby I guess.  Soda Shoppe will be completed first, as it is for Girl.  The others have no hard deadline as 5 of the 6 (if not all 6) will be staying with me.  HST QAL is mine...all mine.  Scrappy Trip will become a beach/picnic blanket. Terrain Swoon will probably be the last completed, because just the idea of quilting it scares the dickens out of me!  But I will get it done one day!  Ruby was originally a gift for someone, so I may still gift it to a person, but not the original recipient (took care of that already).  And Christmas Quilt is just to have a splash of something around Christmas time on the couch.

So there we go...we'll see how having this list as a ready reference works at clearing out the line!


  1. If you ask me, it's always good to have a list.

  2. A list is always a good place to start, then you can make a plan.
