Slow Down On Sunday

I have plenty of batting.  Still, I can't resist the urge to use up the bits and pieces.  So yesterday started with piecing leftover batting together for the Cherry Blossom Quilt.  
 I used a freehand Baptist Fan pattern in gold thread.  That went pretty quickly, especially compared to the pebbles of Bulk mail.
Purple Binding finished it off and Cherry Blossoms is ready for a little bit of slow stitching on Sunday.  
 I have just a few more orange peel blocks to finish off as well.  I'd like to have all the blocks done for this by the end of the year.  Those basket blocks are ready to put together as well.
 The next two quilts on my list are giant.  It gets pretty cramped in my sewing room when the quilting table is extended all the way out, so I decided to pull it out into the formal living room on a temporary basis.  Kurt is mocking me for taking over the entire house.  What good is having a house is you don't use all of it though?  It doesn't have to stay here forever, just until those next few big quilts get done.
First though, I worked hard yesterday, I think I might settle down to do a little slow stitching.  Head over to Kathy's Quilts to see the other handwork people are enjoying on this day of rest.

Binding is my favorite part because I know the quilt is soon to be finished. How many baskets have you made? Love all your projects.

My husband used to say the same thing but now I have a new sewing room and things are fairly contained... Your cherry blossom quilt looks wonderful! Have fun binding today!

I think it looks great in there. So smart to use the whole house for quilting (hehehe). Love the quilt rack in the photo. Those baskets.... darn it I think I forgot to add those to the list. Not sure if they'll make it or not but some day!

Your quilting looks wonderful on your beautiful Cherry Blossoms. I still need lots of practice for free hand :). I love your colourful design wall!

I have threatened my husband that I am going to put my long arm in the living room too but that is never well received. He keeps telling me that the basement will be finished in February (hopefully 2016!!!!!) and then my longarm will be moved and I should have a lot more space.
