I've shown this as a top before and now it's a quilt. I managed to slip this on my longarm in between a couple of customer quilts. I did a huge Civil War Sampler BOM for my friend and I loved the thread color and quilting design, so I put my CW swap top on right after hers and copied the process.
I made a scrappy binding, and bundled this up for my camping trip to Mt. Baker. I hoped to get 2 sides of the binding done and by Sat afternoon, I was finished! Sitting around the campfire in the early hours, my quilt wrapped around my lap to take off the morning chill, stitching down the binding, What a great way to start a day! Now I need to label it and attach a sleeve. I'm going to put this in the NW WA fair as a group project.
This one is still a WIP. My 9 patch swap that I'm using for the center of my Sisters Choice block. The star points are perfect for leaders and enders, I got a bunch done when I made a Lib Log piece a few weeks ago.
I've also prepped a few blocks for Beyond the Cherry Tree BOM. I'm working on the Grape Vine block and I love how its turning out. It helps that I did the prep work months ago. I can't imagine having to sit and do 120+ circles to start this block. Making the circles is TV work.
Fabrics Etc in Bellingham. This will speed up that one step and I already envision myself sitting on the sofa in the winter, basting and gathering circles and building up a good supply for a future project. I've already got a bag full for the border of my BTCT, even though I'm only on block 11 out of 25.
I've also started this little hand project. This is my first go at a Hawaiian applique.

What tricks do you have to keep on task with projects?
