I finished binding my first machine quilt and have posted the pictures for those who wanted to see the finished project!  I was very pleased with the way Mom's walker organizer turned out!  The inspiration fabric and cooridnated made all the difference in the world in it's finished look.  Mom at 90 is still quite the coffee drinker, so the print was perfect!  It was so fun making it for her!  It even has a pocket for a traveling coffee mug so she can have her coffee whenever she wants it!  

The other projects I posted were handquilted pieces I have done, but never did finished. As I was laying out fabric choices for my next quilt,  my husband asked me why I just don't finish some of the projects I already have going. Now that's a novel thought!  I have expanded my goals to include:  for every new project I want to do---I have to finish one that is already started, and mend one in the mend pile (ick!!!)  I am proud to say the pillows represent two projects that I don't even want to admit how long they have been hanging around, but are now finished.  I mended a quilt and it is back in service!

Thank heaven for husbands!

never miss an opportunity to start something you want.   the ufo's will always be there for times there's nothing else to do.  life is too short to stress about ufo's I think.

lol.. yes what would we do without them... I made a goal to finish three UFO's before starting anything new. then I got mail from my mom about needing a couple hundred quilts for a charity drive and then I saw a great tutorial for a cathedral window and I thought..hmm, I"ve been wanting to make one of those, I bet it would look great in blue and white for my niece..no doubt I'll be too impatient to wait to start it, but I'm trying!
