Blocks assembled

The Christmas tree is back on the deck and I want to thank Darcie for sending the snow my way!

I don't particularly care for assembling blocks into a top but I like reaching the finished top stage. Tonight I worked on a binding while we watched a movie and then went ahead and assembled these blocks.

Now, it's on to quilting. I'm setting a goal of quilting 10 tops by January 31st. With the organizing I did yesterday pairing tops with backings, I should be able to make good progress this week.

I'm with you on assembling blocks. I just assembled a queen sized quilt and it was exhausting! I don't much like getting the backing ready either but I have extra wide fabric for this one so it's only trimming and squaring off, but such a huge piece of fabric is so unwieldy. Thank goodness for my frame even if it's only a shortarm one.

I've been reading your blog for several months now, and I have to say You Are Amazing!! The amount of work you finish is astounding.

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to comment more on the blogs I read. It's hard to jump in and talk to someone you don't know...but you are a source of constant inspiration to me.

Thanks for keeping me jazzed up!

lol My pleasure, Mary! Just as long as you don't make me shovel it!!! Guess it burns lots of I shouldn't complain.

I know I'd have a tough time choosing...but which did you prefer? The straight blocks or the wonky blocks? Both quilts are adorable!

Assembling blocks is not my favorite either - although I dislike putting borders on even more! I pretty much like everything else though. The quilt looks great!

Love the quilt. That's a lot of quilting . . 10 by the end of the month, but if anyone can do it, you can!
