Quilt Show countdown...

The guild I belong to has a quilt show every two years.  You would think I would be better prepared!
(A miniature quilt that I just need to quilt and bind...)

But most of the quilts I make/finish go almost immediately out the door!  So I looked around this week and realized if I'm going to have anything hanging in the show I'd better focus on it NOW!
(My "Almost Modern" top just needs to be quilted on my domestic machine)

I'm quite sure I'll be sewing binding or sleeves or labels the week before the show but if I start now I stand a good chance of having a quilt to sew them onto

The background is finished but my heart quilt needs a lot of embroidered hearts...I'll really have to focus...

And finally my "First a Path" quilt...this quilt used a lot of my stash which is a good thing.  When I was first diagnosed with MS a specialist on setting up your house and workspace visited.  He had lots of good suggestions (think of toddler-proofing your home.)  However when he entered by sewing room he was quiet for a moment then said, "first your need a path."

And if I can I'd like to finish up my two political donkey and one elephant (fair and balanced quilting!)
Now...I've got to get back to work!

Great little mini quilt.
I'm looking forward to seeing all of the background hearts appliqued down. It will be a beautiful quilt.
Loved the story about the sewing room needing a path! : )
How very politically correct of you to do a donkey and an elephant.
