Challenge Day 7

It's day 7 of my 31 Day Challenge and I picked up this YUMMY book at work today and it's EXPLODING with inspiration!!  The color schemes used through out is so fresh and fantastic, you could design a quilt around each page of this book!


This has nothing to do with my challenge, just a treat to my self for all my hard work ;o) !!

Today was a weird.... jumbled up day.

Karen is absolutely one of the sweetest ladies I have met, she'll even bring over cookies for the family when she picks her quilts up!  Karen does everything in big chunks!

I currently have about 12 tops of Karen's, all small quilts and about 1/2 of the backs need to be prepared and all the bindings need to be done.


I've dedicated today, tomorrow and Thursday to finish up all her quilts.  I did manage to get one quilted up...but then spent a big part of the day, going through them to check on the backs the bindings and just trying to de-jumble them all to start the assembly line for quilting them all up.

Here is 5 of the 12 pre-bindings I need to prepare.


And my good friend Sharon gave me the idea to sew some of the backs together before loading on the machine.  Great idea!!

11 more quilts in two days!  That does sound far fetched, but I have been known to pull this off....and I just might!

....okay, wish me luck!

I might just take an extra nap for you...I feel exhausted just reading about all you are going to accomplish.

Just imagine how you will feel if you pull this off - you'll have got over a third of the way through and in only a week - that's just amazing, really amazing.

It will get you closer to being able to play with the inspiration from your new magazine, then there will be no stopping you.

Good Luck! you can do it and the assembly line idea for small quilts is a time saver-great tip!!

vivian said...

Wow! Doing backs and bindings too! I'm exhausted just thinking about it!

Jenny, I was going to suggest you put a "ticker" on your blog to show how many quilts you've quilted -- but I see you put it at the end of the post. You go girl, we're all gunning for you! [Now I have to confess that I finished quilting one quilt from loading the machine to completed on Sunday and was sick all day Monday. Guess I shouldn't stand in front of the machine for four hours nonstop?]

I think you should be kind to yourself. Your work is brilliant and worth waiting for so I hope you have scheduled a day off in this challenge..it may be too much even for superwoman.

you are amazing me here!

Karin said...

wow! that is quite a challenge! good luck! can't wait to see what you create!

Lisa D. said...

I also worry that you're going to burn out by taking on so many quilts without stopping. And I agree that your work is awesome and worth the wait. I hope you will still feel like quilting after this challenge. I'm curious - if you have 12 quilts for one customer, does that count as 1 job or 12? You are Super Quilting Woman!

Megan said...

Good for you, for taking some time to get organized. Good luck

Mama Pea said...

If you pull it off, just think, you'll be more than half way there! I know you can. I think the idea of sewing the backs together is a real time safer!

I'm so jealous of all the work! Cheering you on!
