I got 2 piano key borders on during the Superbowl and then I set it aside and worked on other things.
I mentioned it yesterday to a friend and she wondered when I was going to finish so after dinner last night I pulled it out, got one of the piano key borders on and then today the other.
It really did finish up nice didn't it?
It measures 64 x 77 and will be perfect for over the back of hubby's leather couch....which he told me this morning!

I really love the fabrics I used and am excited to do more today. I have 14 made and since I want to do a 5 x 6 layout, I need quite a few more!
Here are the blocks I have so far up on my design wall.
I'm going to do my layout 5 across with 6 down so the 14 blocks I have right now is a good start but I'm going to need
quite a few more....
We're having a rainy/snowy mix today here in New Jersey so it's a perfect day to sew.
I also have to admit to having a weak moment last week and did some quilting retail therapy for myself...I was feeling sorry for myself because I am down to just 1 BOM and I'm missing packages in the mailbox so I ordered a few things to add to future projects........

How do you keep yourself focused and on course with your quilting projects? I do a Big 3 each month with 2 of my quilting friends and since it's February (already) I realized I better pull my list together and post it to the girls. I've had a bag of blocks in my cabinet since November 2008! The blocks are from a swap with some internet girls from all over the US and even 2 girls from Europe.... They are all stars with a cream background and the only 2 colors allowed were turquoise and brown. Again....I have no clue who will get this quilt but it will be a finished top before the end of the month and once it's quilted I'll worry about who to give it to!
My other 2 projects are to trim and bind my daughter's wedding quilt amd also fuse and assemble my snowman blocks into a quilt top. I know it's a lot but I think I'm up for the challenge! If nothing else, the quilt for my daughter WILL get done. Her shower is March 24th, and yes, I know have lots of time but I'm not a HUGE fan of the binding process so I tend to put it off till the last minute...I'm going to be prepared though this time :) We still have to settle on a cake topper for the wedding and a few other things but we're almost there!!!
