Another Quilting Day

I am making some progress. I completed the comfort quilt, Under the Sea.

I sewed the binding on to the back and brought it around to the front and machine sewed it with a decorative stitch. I decided that since this quilt is going to a child the binding should be on good and sturdy. And, I think the stitching is decorative, how about you?
I have gotten 21 of 28 appliqu├ęd blocks done for a give-away quilt and today I need to work on the block swap blocks I did the embroidery for (no pictures yet). I also am going to be white board drawing for some quilting to be done on another old (2005) BOM I have the top done on but nothing else.

Do you ever have those mornings when you wake up thinking quilting? I did this morning. I used 7 BOM blocks to make a valance for my bedroom. I love the valance but still have 5 left-over blocks that I had planned to use in a throw for the bed. This morning, as I found myself focusing on the valance, I began mentally planning how to put the leftovers together. DH came into the room and asked why I was staring at the wall: I think he was worried about me. LOL
Of course this came after I completely forgot to go to the guild’s workshop night last night. I had said I would come with my machine to work on three quilts the guild is going to be giving away. I even told someone at WW Monday night I would be there. The meeting started at 6 and I remembered at 7:30. Maybe there is something wrong with me.

Anyway, it seems like I have a full day planned for me so I better get to it.

One of the great things about retirement is you CAN wake up in the morning and think about quilting instead of the day's work. That quilt turned out beautifully.

Oh, I have forgotten meetings and such more times than I like to admit -- sometimes it just happens! I like the decorative stitch on the binding.
