Basting and a UFO

Lots of pinning yesterday afternoon = lots of quilting to happen over the next couple of weeks.

Little Patchwork Village
Vintage Valentine quilt top has been finished since 15 February 2009 - almost 2 years ago to the day.  Funny coincidence that I should decide now is the time to start the quilting.

Vintage Valentine
It's not often I have an uninterrupted afternoon/evening to spend however I want.  Once the pinning was finished I took out a UFO and started sewing blocks and sashings together.

Leanne Beasley's "365 Challenge"
Two rows are together, 3 to go.  The quilt will be fairly large (78" x 78") including outer sashing and posts, so I won't need to add outer borders.  I should change the name of this quilt because I didn't write an entry for every day and I made 12 blocks for the diary rather than individual blocks for the 365 days.  Also need to spend some time tidying up the sewing room - I am a very messy quilter.

WOW Lynda you have been one busy lady. I love both those quilts that are ready to be quilted. I guess with all the pins you are planning on hand quilting!!!!!
It is really great when you are on the homeward run to the finish. Wish I could say the same for me. LOL.

Good job on all of that basting. I have one here to baste... I'm putting it off. I should just get in and do it!

WOW!!
Look at you go!!! It looks like you were very productive this weekend.

I love your Vintage Valentine. I have one block left to do on mine and hope to get started on that soon. Yours has given me inspiration.

Hello Lynda,

Love your vintage valentines quilt. I started that 365 day challenge quilt, ending up using the material for something else. I still have the diaries I wrote though. I may just print those out and give to my family. It made for interesting reading though as our eldest daughter got married then and all the prep for that was mentioned.Will have to get onto it.
Happy quiltling Lynda.
