A few finishes



Before making my too long UFO list I actually finished a few quilts. The one above needed binding and it's twin


also needed some binding. I love the aqua and brown and those little elephants are adorable.


More binding finished off this little doll quilt.


Guess what? Yep, just needed binding.


Another finish that just needed binding. Notice a trend here? I seem to lose steam when it comes to the binding stage.


Added the binding...



...and some more binding lol.

That's it for now but I think crossing 7 quilts off the UFO list is a good start to the year.  It seems January is a good month for custom orders so I won't be able to get anymore projects crossed off the list for a bit. At least I will still be creating though. I enjoy working on custom orders so it's ok.

Sewing the binding is the least fun part of quilt making - although it means that you are nearly done. Lovely finishes - congrats.

I don't mind the binding as it is the finishing step - quilting is the hardest for me as I wrangle all that fabric under my machine, although basting is a pretty good workout too. Who knew that quilting would be so physical? lol.

Great to have 7 off your list!!

How good is that to be able to cross off 7 UFO's.
I always sew my bindings on by machine. that makes it faster.

Wow, Robin, that's a lot of finshes -- and probably a mile of binding! Love the first quilt with the elephants. Amy recently made a zig zag quilt using that fabric, it is so adorable! Thanks for linking up with us!
