Lists and Finishes!

 I am super happy to report that I finished tying and binding the second eye spy quilt that my daughter wanted (for friends who are having babies).  I usually do not do that kind of thing but she never asks for anything so I decided to do them.  She in return is buying me a open toed foot for my Bernina--was going to order some fabric on her nickel but I really do not NEED anymore at the moment so I decided to get something more practical.
Now where the lists come into this post.  I am loving those Projects at a Glance sheets I wrote about a post or two ago.  I had absolutely no idea how many projects I let accumulate.  I always say I am a finisher and I am!  I updated my Pinterest (in sidebar) for the WIPS/UFOs and seriously think I have accounted for them all by now.  Lord I hope so!  So here is what I have going on:
Handwork in Progress--3
Works in Progress still being stitched-20
Works in Progress to be quilted or tied by me-13
To be Longarmed-8
That is after I accounted for these two easy finishes.  I quilted and tied them so I could check them off--see the lists are working already!
 Not the best picture, but this is Strip Twist made in 2014.  I have had it pinned and ready to practice quilting on it since then.  Happy to have it done and it will soon be gifted as I know of four babies in utero right now!
We Wish You a Merry Christmas tiny tablerunner also is quilted and bound.  Not great, but done. 


In all my listmaking I was able to put my hands on the RSC BOM blocks for both January and February so I could get a picture of them together.  LOVE Quiltville's Straits of Mackinac!  Looking forward to the next month's color!
 Last Tuesday Kathy went to guild with me (she is a member this year due to Bonnie's workshop) and we played Quilt-O.  Super fun and she won twice and me once.  I am now doing the blog and facebook pages for our guild too.  So hopefully I will be better about doing my own blog again!

LOVE those RSC blocks!! Bet you did have fun playing Quilt-o. Our guild hasn't played that in quite a while. Time to talk to the Program Director!!

I've been wanting to make that Straits of Mackinac since I saw it. Love seeing it in another color and look forward to seeing that progress.
