Challenge Day 13

It's day 13 of my 31 Day Challenge and the day flew by!  I don't know about you, but Monday's always seem like the busiest day of the week....weekend laundry....bills....groceries.  Not that I did all that, but I did go back and forth from quilting to laundry today.  My washer and dryer are like 3 feet away from my longarm, so it's very convenient but at the same time inconvenient!

 This is a very fun and soft flannel quilt.  I did a meander on it and sometimes I just love the simplicity and look of a meander.  I then prepared and added the binding.

 I finally took out the last quilt from it's bag!  I think I've mentioned before how nice Karen is, she puts little notes on all the quilts and at the end of the note she always leaves a nice compliment and it always puts a big smile on my face!

....and here they are, 11 out of the 12 quilted and ready for the bindings to be sewn down.  I'm thinking I should have finished the quilts completely as I went, because I have a feeling It's going to be a long day, after sewing all these bindings down.

The last quilt is a small one and should go fast for me in the morning and then on to the bindings.....and once again I'm pushing Karen's quilts out 1 more day.  I'm crossing my fingers I can finish them all tomorrow!

Wow!!! You're doing great, I'm tired just reading the post. I got my ruler today and fabrics picked out. I'm going to try your urban nine patch, can't wait. I'm already planning the quilting and I have even made the first block :)

You'll just get "in the zone' when binding tomorrow and they'll all be done before you know it! Then we can see the number of quilt's finished sky rocket on your next post! :)

12 quilts to bind...(I think I should put that to some kind of tune or something) Wow, that is really going to jump your total up an amazing amount! You so have this challenge!

Just think when you get all the bindings on your total finished quilts will have tripled!

Just think that when you've got all these done (and you've done very well with so many complete ready to bind) that you are half way through your challenge and just have larger quilts to do.
The way you've attacked this challenge so far, I've no concerns that you won't be able to complete each of the remaining quilts in say 1 to 2 days each.. and anyway who cares it the last 1 or 2 go over the scheduled target as long as they are ALL done, and on their way back to their owners / creators, that's what it's all about in the first instance, and in the second, it gives you the chance to play with your ruler, fabrics and all those ideas bouncing around in your head.

my the top of that mountain is so close! I've been intrigued as to how you've sewn the bindings on the frame, perhaps when you have completed your challeng you can tell us all :) Almost there!

Go, Jenny, go! You're really doing an awesome job.

They are so pretty all in a row.

It is a good thing you are machine stitching those bindings down or you would have some very sore fingers from all that sewing! As always, they look stunning :)
