Quilters Accontability

Well, last week's goal was to get the borders on the Bella Rosa quilt & quilt two tops.  End result... finished the baby quilt on the longarm, only lacks binding, but can't add the binding till I finish Bella Rosa.  Status?  Last border is cut and one side attached.  There are 4 borders and only the last one remains.  This is one of my least favorite tasks, especially for a quilt this large, so setting the goals and not allowing myself to proceed with anything else till it's done is what it takes to finish..... Okay, so it is Monday.  The backing for Homestead Hydrangeas (my oldest UFO) is loaded on Maxine... well, nearly, anyway - closest it's ever been to actually being completed. LOL!  

So, for this week: 

 << Bella Rosa one side with 4th border

1.  Finish Bella Rosa AND piece the backing so that it is ready for the longarm.... it can't be quilted right now as Maxine's new home is on hold for a couple of months. 

2.  Quilt Homestead Hydrangeas

3.  Bind Kaleido-Zip baby quilt and gift.  I just love the way it came out... so cute.... here's a close up of the quilitng:

4.  A little play time.... time to make a couple more blocks in my scrappy Pinapple Blossoms quilt (

. . . and then to create a table topper from my stash.... :) Whoo hoo!  Play time - so close!

Okay, this means I'll have to really stay focused.  I am determined that those borders will be done tonight!  Maybe, just maybe, I'll get the Girl Scout Troop's QOV loaded before the week is done?
