Quilters accountability 10/13/10

What a week!! 
Here is a picture of tonite's sunset from my deck. I think it might be the only night we have been home at this time - and that was by accident!

A few weeks ago - Nancy - at sent me a Quilt of Valor to quilt. This is it! All quilted! Isn't it a lovely pattern? I have a feeling this one took a long time to make!
Here is an up close shot... I had a great time quilting it.
So - what else have I been up to? I cut up 15 yards of fabric into strips for the Veterans Day Rail Fence Quilt. I have put together 2 kits for our QOV Sew day in November.

I busted 16 yards of fabrics into backings for QOV's and..... I have been sewing 15 minutes a day - at least. I am so excited!!! My goals last week were to:

*Keep sewing on the Betty Blocks - Yep- finished 3 more!!!  I think this means that I might *might* get this done before 2032 now....

*Sew all my sets together for my Fall Foliage quilt - Oops - I got a little sidetracked and only got half of them sewn....

Here is my problem - I always say I am going to only sew one project at a time, and then I see something or get an idea and *bam* it has to be done right now, and then I think since I am cutting up fabrics I should cut some extra for this and maybe some for that.... and the next thing I know I have 3 things going on.... Do you do this too? 

Goals for Next Week:
1. Betty Blocks - keep making progress
2. Keep working on Fall Foliage
3. Get my Veterans Rail Fence pattern all tested and ready to go - fabric requirements will go up on November 7th!!!  ANNDDD there are two ways to do this - with yardage or with scraps....

Wow, the sunset and the quilt are both gorgeous! The sunset makes me miss Colorado and Nancy's quilt is incredible.

Betty is moving right along! Can't wait to see her or the Veterans Rail Fence pattern. I already have some takers from my guild for the QOV sew date on November 11th. Thanks for suggesting it!

Uh . . . yeh . . . how boring would life be if you could only work on one quilt at a time? But I also know I'd put my sewing machine where I could look at that sunset every day -- how beautiful!
