Top done

I got another top pieced. Ah, the satisfaction of another quilt being completed. I still need to get the backing pieced though. That always feels like a chore. Tops are much more satisfying. I really don't think I should be called a quilter though. Maybe a piecer or a binder but I don't actually do much "quilting". I like hand quilting but it takes lots of time and I am impatient. I should do some hand quilting sometime soon.

My next project will be the pay it forward ones. I am not sure what I want to make. I could make table runners, wall hangings, or even cooking aprons. I am at a loss and waiting for inspiration to happen. Once I complete those I want to get crackin' on a long over due wedding quilt for one of my aunts. I am also hoping to get a lap size kid quilt done for a wonderful new blogger who participates in making blankets for Project Linus. How could you go wrong making quilts for sick kids in hospitals!?
