Binding, No Blogging, Travel

I know I didn't post a stash busting report on Sunday, but that's mainly because I was trying to do all the normal chores and pack for traveling this week. For work, I'm spending 4 days in Bangor, Maine. There was a small group of us that drove up on Monday (left Albany, NY around 7am) and arrived in Bangor around 3pm. We're spending a few days up here visiting our manufacturing shop to visit with the engineers up here and also to run some workouts with the manufacturing team. Hopefully it will be a good trip overall.

So back to quilting.....

I was able to finish the binding on the baby quilt on Saturday. Yay! I also found out that the baby was actually born on Saturday afternoon, so I finished it up JUST in time. :-) I also got a bunch more of the binding sewn on the Irish Rails quilt. At this point I have less than one side left to do, so I'm pretty close to being done. I thought about bringing the quilt with me and sewing binding in the vehicle and here in the hotel, but decided that I didn't want to pack the quilt and I didn't think I would actually have time to sew. At least progress was being made and I'm hoping that I might actually finish it up this weekend.

So here's the list of things to do over the next few weeks:
  • Finish sewing binding on Irish Rails
  • Finish sewing binding on Garden Pleasures
  • Thread baste and quilt the Rainbow Patch quilt
  • Start sewing binding on 54-40 or Fight

Its a little ambitious considering that the weather is getting nicer and I will be doing gardening soon and work is busy, but we'll see how far I get.

Hope you had a good time in Bangor. Been cool and rainy up here in Maine.
