I'm not sure how that happened, but the crates are gone!!!! Everyone was working on stuff right up until the final moment when the door was closed and locked shut! I have visions of it exploding somewhere along the way! The crates aren't that full - OK - all three are them are chock a block full.
I went to post my blog yesterday and where or where did those pictures go??? No idea. I swear that I posted them on the blog, but alas, no pictures when I went to write.
So you remember the pile of quilts that had to be trimmed? Well, those quilts got trimmed and now look - a huge mess of quilt cut off pieces.

I have started to sort this out and pitch the scraps, but it isn't a priority for the moment. Nope - once I got home last night, I had to get my block ready for the round robin at the Grand River Modern Quilt Guild. From the moment, I got the project, I knew what I was going to add. Let's just say there is a bit of improv, a bit of tradition and a bit of curved piecing! Thank goodness it was improv, because I messed up trimming the small paper pieced section!
Anyway - once those quilts were trimmed, they were rolled into three neat bundles and ready to load on the crate.

Now if you look closely, you'll see how I managed to get those "bindings" on so quick. Yes - ALL of them have a serged edge.
What a time saver that is!!!!! I might think of this for future quilts! Actually, these quilts are for a presentation only so I'm not worried about them not having binding. But they will get bound!
And here is the floor where those quilts were. YES - there are projects under there and those need to be addressed, but not until the weekend!

And the next project on the cutting table - trying to get rid of the scraps for the pet mats. I was trying to get one of the mats serged this morning and jammed up the serger and broke a needle!

And here is my off-cuts from the two collections and two different colorways. Which reminds me that I need a smidgen more of a couple of them to make my project this weekend!!!!
On that note, while things have calmed down, I'm still prepping stuff for market. Things that I will take with me or meetings to set up. And after a lengthy meeting this morning, time is running out.
Have a great day!!!!!
