Last week I posted on the predicament I found myself in relating to getting 3 quilts finished in a very short time. Thank you all so much for your lovely comments and words of encouragement - they really helped.
A week on I am very happy to tell you that I DID IT!!!!! And just in the nick of time. I literally had finished sewing the last stitch on the hanging sleeve of my last quilt, pinned the Show organiser's label to it and got the bags ready for the quilts to be packed in when my husband returned to deliver them for me. He had kindly offered when he saw just how tired I was that morning! Oh the relief!!!
In hindsight I think I was crazy for putting myself under that kind of pressure but on the other hand I have three brand new finished quilts. I may have done things differently on them if I had not had such a tight deadline but then again they may have been sitting as tops for another few months ........ or years!
I posted about Say "Cheese!" over here if you want to read about it.
Second to be finished was my oldest WIP - oh the memories this stirred up ..... It was actually a really emotional journey quilting this one! Luckily I still love the fabrics and love the finished quilt. I didn't have time to take lots of photos of ANZAC Hearts so the ta-da post will be next week when it is back from Show.
The last quilt to be quilted and finished was Should I Stay of Should I Go? On this one I was really under serious time pressure. There are lots of things I would have done differently but in the end I just had to do it. Yes, there is some stitching I would have taken out and redone if there had been time and yes, the quilting design may have been different but ........ it's done!! Again there will be a full post about this quilt next week.
Suffice it to say I am exhausted but extremely happy and really rather proud. I haven't finished three quilts in a year before let alone a week!
So today I am going to be very social and link up over with Lorna and actually head around and see some of the other lovely bloggers!
