I managed to finish the quilting and binding on the 2 smallest quilts of the four that I had pin-basted.  I quilted in the morning and packed in the afternoons!  Pictures of the quilts, Noah's Ark and Paddington Bear are found by clicking the "Quilts 2013" link that is under the banner on my blog!

I also did basic stitch-in-the-ditch quilting on the next largest quilt, and added the binding, and quilted the borders on my version of Dawn & Dusk, and added the binding to it as well.  Quilts are much easier to pack when they have finished edges!

I still have one more bin to load, then decide how I'm going to pack the finished quilts.  We also have to pack clothing and our stuff for the trip north.  Our "motel" bag, my computer, my activity bag (books, sewing projects etc.,) and the cooler will be packed in the morning before we do our final walk through of the house.  DH made a "closing the house" checklist for friends and family who had used the place for vacations in years past, and it works well for us as well.  This prevents thoughts of items forgotten when we are several hours away!

Check out all the reports at Judy's blog, Patchwork Times.     


  1. Great stash numbers! Have a safe trip north.

  2. Have a safe trip home....I am also in FL and getting ready to head north in a couple of weeks and we use a list. Much safer and we don't forget anything.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
