The last Rail Fence quilt pieced by San and her NC group is quilted. Once it’s bound, it will go in the next batch of quilts to Alycia for Quilts of Valor but I’ve got another one to quilt that’s heading that way so it will be a while before these are done.
While I was downstairs, I did a little laundry and straightened up the quilts and backs on the shelf….
….which is a good thing because I have some tops and backs that just arrived from Tish to add to the group. I’m convinced that if it wasn’t for Tish, Pat, and Sheree who have all sent numerous backings for HeartStrings quilts, that I would never have been able to continue to quilt these donated tops for this long. Besides the obvious volume of fabric that goes into them, the time to piece them all would not only have slowed me down but frankly, piecing backs is NOT one of my favorite things to do and ultimately would have effected how many donated tops I agreed to quilt. So a lot of the credit for the amount of quilting I do goes to those who have sent me pieced backs!
And speaking of piecing, I really DO need to set aside a day and piece those batting leftovers on the top shelf into usable battings!
