Quilts for Helen

Helen B in Las Vegas sent in these quilts. Now I know Helen is an accomplished Long Arm quilter - but - oh my - seeing these up close.... I think I might have drooled!
I posted a couple of close ups just because I can. And the more I spend time writing on my blog, the less work I have to do.... right?
I have been ironing on labels onto the backs of quilts. I have one of those tiny ironing boards, so I set it up on the top of my cutting table and it works perfectly. I am starting to make a new home downstairs. If I didn't have to do laundry and eat, I could live down here. hmmm, maybe I'll just bring some chocolate and I'd be good... for hours....
Today is my sew day with my guild gals... you know the ones who love to bind ( hy heros!) So the truck is loaded with quilts to bind, fabric to make binding, quilts that still need borders, and my sewing machine. I am ready to go! Well - I do need to make a vege tray. I am such a good vege tray maker - its probably the best thing I can cook. Good thing its not a food competition right? I think I will pick up a bag of Dove Dark Chocolate - they I will be loved, yes?
Hope you enjoy the quilts - Have a great day!
