Quiltathon Day 2-Morning Break

The best thing about dedicated Quiltathon days is that I can plan my projects and focus on what I plan. I didn't go back into the sewing room last night but I got a super early start this morning and finished the Scrappy Bento Box top. It is now on the to be quilted pile with the scrappy binding. WooHoo for a finish!!!

Next on my project list is the Pat Sloan Meadow Breeze BOM. I'm still working on part 4, with part 6 being published. I'm hoping to be caught up before she posts part 7.

I just noticed that my stripes on the green fabric aren't going in the same direction. I plan to make up the rest of the blocks-you know on my quest to be an overachiever-so I can get them in the right place. I hope I can just move this set to a different spot without it looking funny. I'll have to wait and see.

I think I may have over estimated what I can get done in 2 days. I don't think I'll be working on any paper pieced stars today. With not too much planned for the weekend, I may just keep on Quiltathoning.

Time to get back to it.

you sound like me Judy, I think I over planned! Your Bento quilt is fantastic--woohoo on a finish.
Don't think I'd have noticed the stripes if you hadn't pointed it out
ok lunch and back to sew!
Will check back later!

How much fun. I'm so glad you are getting some uninterrupted time to sew and sew and sew. You have accomplished so much already, I'm sure the stars will wait patiently until you are ready for them.
