What to do....

Only 45 days until the guild quilt show and I still have 4 quilts to bind and sew sleeves onto. Yikes! So what am I doing? Dreaming about the first project I will start after the sleeves are finished....
I've had this vintage quilt for years. I bought it at a street sale in Gettysburg, PA. There was some serious cedar hazing/stain on the entire quilt. Most of it has come out but it still has a sort of badly done tea stain look to it. (It looks much brighter in person than in the photos...)I think I liked how simple it is. At the time I was working hard on my first Baltimore Album quilt so this was about as far to the other side as I could get! So I may make a repro of it using a few more blues (of course) but try to keep it fairly understated.

There are two more project jumping around the design wall...first is a wonky word quilt. V at Bumblebeans sent me this block...it will be a bakery-centric quilt!

The next quilt will be appliqued but I haven't decided on which of the project to go with yet...there are 4 on the shelf and I like them all...oh well, back to binding. Not like that applique decision needs to be done in the next 45 days!

I thought I was reading my own blog when you said you had four quilts to finish for the guild show. I think my lucky stars mine are done and wish you a speedy finish on yours.

I love the blue pinwheels quilt! Yes, I think it's the simplicity of it that is so appealing.

I only have two quilts to bind and get sleeves on in the next month, but I feel your pain! Good luck with yours.

cedar hazing? that doesn't sound good. something you get from storing a quilt in a cedar chest I'm guessing. darn, I keep forgetting to make you a tart. so to speak.
