But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep...

These are a few of the recent quilts I made when I was not able to work. I had my sewing machines and my fabric stash and my threads all moved downstairs where I could easily sew all I wanted to...as a result (that and boredom) I made lots and lots of quilt tops and my Aunt Marge machine qilted them for me. She does an awesome job and is very reasonable. These are actually the finished products, I just need to stitch the bindings on by hand. That is my least favorite job...takes forever when you have a big quilt, but well worth the wait.

This quilt is one I made for my niece Ruth, who is kind of a cowgirl and by the way, she is looking for a nice cowboy if anyone knows one....She looked all over and was very picky about the pink bandana fabric....it had to be just right. As a result I have three very nice pinkish bandana prints that were not just right....I am thinking I might have to make a quilt out of those!
Anyway, the finished product shows that she made the right decision!
I am sure I can have these finished in no time!

Well, maybe I can find her one with a single Dad too! I could handle that!

I love the cow quilt! The fabrics are perfect.

I agree about the binding being the least favorite job on a quilt, but it means that the work is almost done. Yee-haw!

I know someone else who could use a cowboy, too, if there is a spare one after Ruth finds hers......a brother of his perhaps.....:c)
