In order to avoid this time crunch situation, that means keeping things up to date and NOT agreeing to things if there is no time. Some of these projects got delayed because of meeting another deadline and since I'm not flitting from project to project, a couple of things are DUE in the next couple of days. I want to get to the position where there is a smidgen more room between finishing and the due date or not have so many things due on the same day!
Yesterday was a day for focusing. So much so that as I was working, I was listening to the radio. It's 2:00 PM. Oh really??? And next thing I knew, it was time for the 3:00 PM news update. Then 4 and 5. I mean that is real focus and has NEVER really happened to me.
Here goes with a few things that are happening in the studio.
I made this quilt last Saturday. It's a modern quilt with loads of negative space. The design wall was busy so I couldn't hand it up for a photo.

|The backing and the binding are also made!!!!
This was one of those scenarios where I needed to check with my schedule and reality and well, there just wasn't time to do justice to this quilt.
Originally I wasn't involved in the raffle quilts at all. I've done many of them over the years. However at one of our retreats, I was asked to help with these blocks that had been made by the guild members. Hexagons with Dresden plate style piecing.
Same person offered to take this quilt. DONE!!!! I really didn't have time to get it quilted in the time frame it was needed. But I did manage to get the binding and the backing done.

This is another quilt that I'm putting in the finished book. Although technically, it's been done for a while. But it's for M and she happens to be visiting at the moment so I can finally give it to her. Yes - it has a label, no sleeve as it's a snuggly quilt. It's got minky on the back.

And what am I working on this weekend??? I've got blog posts for Quilt Social that MUST be done by tomorrow. I'm working on my 150 Canadian Women blocks. I think I'm on number 22? of 27 so that's not bad and parts of the remaining blocks are cut out - the red bits.

I hope the final assembly isn't going to be too challenging. Because of the colors, everything needs to be in a specific location. I think assembly is going to happen tomorrow. I also have two quilts to quilt today. Ah - going to be a tad busy, but I'm happy with the progress. I will be happy for a weekend with NO deadlines though!!! This quilt is NOT my pattern, but I'll tell you the pattern source, when I'm done.
On that note, I'm out of here!
Have a super day!!!!
And on that note, I think Lexi (and Murphy) have something to say this moring.
