Nearly done, Charley

Added the top third to Charley Harper.  All I'm going to do now is one little border, I think, then he's ready to quilt.  




Unfortunately he will have to wait a bit, since there's something else (unblogged) on the go and that's at least a month off done.  Actually, since I always under-estimate these things it's probably two months off done, or three!

This is the first time ever I've had a backlog, albeit a tiny one.  Usually there's one top I'm piecing, one I'm quilting.  Oh, and I cut strips for scrappies all the time, but they just sit in a bag so they don't count.  Some people, I know, like to have multiple projects on the go but I suspect I'm too easily confused for that, and in any case I'm too slow.

Linking up today with Let's Bee Social and Needle and Thread Thursday, and, for the first time, with Off the Wall Friday.

  1. Love that fabric line! What size is it going to end up, cot quilt?

    1. Cot quilt, give or take. I just keep going until I like something, then stop, so my sizings are always approximate.

  2. I have lots of WIPs but I prefer concentrating on one at a time. Even just thinking about how many WIPs I have feels overwhelming and if I worked on too many at once I don't think I'd get anything finished!!

    Love the interesting layout around the Charley Harper prints!

    1. If I try to do too many at one time I just lose my place on everything :-) Thanks for visiting.

  3. I feel the same about WIP's I cant have too many or I feel like nothing is getting done. Now I have one to quilt and one to piece along with Sewing Bee's. The blues are beautiful

  4. Lovely quilt top, Kaja! Looking forward to seeing what you decide for the border! I am not one to have more than one or two projects on the go at once either. My memory is too full of holes. I always have to go back over what I have done to get my brain back on track!
