I decided it was time to do some serious machine quilting of the many many quilt tops that have patiently waiting to be finished. I had a stack that I had pulled out, many of which are slated to be finished for charity purposes, a few I will keep, and perhaps a few I will sell. So they’ve all ended up in this crate so they are visible when I’m in the sewing room to nag at me to finish them.
I issued a challenge to myself to complete them all by my birthday next year, July 28, 2012. Course when I first posted about the challenge to myself there was also a guessing game involved where comments were left trying to guess how many would end up in the crate — I stuffed a few more in there after this photo was taken. I have no idea how many are in there, and the person who guess correctly (or closest to the correct number without going over) will have to patiently wait, now that the guessing is over, until they are finished to win their prize for the guessing correctly.
So as I finish quilting the tops in this crate, I’ll be posting photos here of the completed quilts. Time will tell just how many I managed to stack in that crate!
Denise – who still has two storage tubs of other tops to be quilted in addition to these! YIKES!
