Mail and a finish!

Look what the mailman brought! Six pieced backs for HeartStrings quilts....I can't begin to tell you how helpful it is when I receive backs already pieced and ready to load on the longarm -- it saves me a lot of time and I really appreciate Tish sending me these.

And I finally have a finish! I've had a stack of quilts waiting for bindings....kind of unusual for me because I usually keep up better with my binding. This little top was pieced by Cheryl and now it's all ready to wash and donate.

I also wanted to thank everyone who commented on my post the other day. I've written many of you back but in some cases didn't have email addresses to respond to others.

I'm quilting at a slower pace this summer than is usual for me and I found it interesting to read how strong the committment to quilting is for many us....surviving a lack of time or even periods where we don't quilt at all but always drawing us back in.

Oh I love this quilt. I think everyone is sooo busy this summer. I know that I am. I am actually looking forward to winter.

That was a great post, I've gone back to peruse it. Tons of comments. Amazing you for replying to all that you could!

What a bonus for you to have all those backs done up, too. I like that you received those.
