Stash Busting - 2/22/2009

I was able to make a little more progress on the stash busting front. I cut, washed, and pressed the backing for the Irish Rails quilt that I've been working on for a while. Lately, I've gotten stuck on the quilting part of the whole process and its been tending to slow me down a bit. Plus, I've told myself that I'm not allowed to cut into my new fabric that I bought a few weeks ago until I get the 4 quilts currently in process finished. Two of them are almost done and only need binding added, but the other two still need to be quilted. Hopefully I'll be able to make some progress now that I'm no longer sick!

Here's some pictures of the quilts that have binding on them:
Binding on!

I like the border in the quilt at the top. I have no idea about the quilting part of the hobby, but I like to piece so I make tops..... I will learn the next step here soon, and I love reading about people who do quilt. And I am glad you are no longer sick. I had a month of that and it was not fun at all....... Stay healthy!!!!

I loved the framed blocks in the 54 40 or fight blocks, and the ribbon borders just finishes it perfectly.
