    Quilt Sharing Day 5 or 6?

    Oops. Forgot to post yesterday! As always I get lost. My husband says I get stuck in rabbit holes. My children say I get buried in my quilts and WIPs (of which there are many) and UFOs.
    Yesterday I finished the binding on my quilt. This one is for me. It’s London Blues quilt kit.
    At the start of COVID my husband was temporarily assigned to work in Washington DC 9051 miles away. So in April I decided to drive up and visit. Anticipating spending quality time with him, (everything was closed) I packed my sewing machine and the London Blues kit and several spools of blue thread and two bobbins. (No cats so I figured I would be safe with only two)
    For two weeks we enjoyed each other’s company. (If you ask him, he’ll say he heard the sewing machine in his sleep for a few weeks after)
    When I left I had a completed top!
    My local quilt shop has suspended longarm rentals in keeping with COVID safety precautions. And Because of those closures I had time on my hands—I have A LOT— of UFOs. recently I have sent them two at a time to get quilted by the skilled ladies at Quilting by the Bay. I even sent one for my son to Missouri Quilt Co. All done beautifully. Now I am sewing bindings on. The bright blues and purples is for my youngest son. It was a kit (I love kits—takes all the guess work out of picking colors and I learn new blocks and patterns and ways of making blocks differently.)
    The Irish chain I sent to my nephew in New Jersey.

    I have some of that London Blues fabric for a project that hasn't been started yet. I love the bright rich colors it has. Your quilt is superb! Your other ones are equally stunning. Thanks for sharing!

                No way to pick a favorite, all are stunning. If it wasn't for the little clock/calendar at bottom of computer screen I wouldn' t know what date it is most of the time. Often have to use that date to figure out which day of the week it is even.

                  Ooh that London Blues quilt is SO gorgeous! Who wouldn't want that on their bed. You did a fabulous job on that, and all your others are wonderful too.

                              Your quilts are beautiful and exquisite. I am grateful for quilting, which has kept me busy during all the lock-downs as well.

                              Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

                              Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
