At the end of the year I always make a big push to get as many of my tops quilted and bound so I go into the new year with as few UFOs as possible. In January, I try to finish up any tops here that aren’t mine – like this HeartStrings top sent to me by Sue to quilt and donate. It’s the last of the group tops here and now I just have 3 of Mom’s tops to quilt and I’ll feel all caught – not to say I don’t have other tops of mine waiting for quilting but I will have accomplished my goal of “catching up”. Pantograph is Steam.


  1. I am always impressed by your string quilts. I love the beautiful results that come from such a simple pattern. Congrats on being “caught up!”

  2. There is a sense of relief when the tops start to become quilts. Last year you inspired me to finish quilts and I got many quilted, but not bound. I still have probably 8 more to long arm when I return home from our winter trip. I practiced my binding by machine and am much better at it now. I have a large stack of quilts to give away when I’m finished and plenty of people who will take them. I do love this strip quilt with navy.

  3. With the size of the hat you must have full of projects any projects gone must be some relief. You do so much and bless the world with the good that you do.
