Bitten by the Quilting Bug

I've been bitten by the quilting bug. Steven says I have it bad.

I think he's right.

I have a quilt top for my bed finished except for the border. I had fabric for the border but I didn't like it so I got some more. I need to finish this one.

I made a wall hanging quilt top for Jenny's stairwell. It needs to be taken to the shop and quilted.

Tonight I finished a Christmas quilt top. I love, love, love it! I've got to get the backing fabric bordered because I didn't buy enough. I'll probably get that done tomorrow. Tonight I'm too tired.

I have fabric for Rachael a quilt. Hopefully I'll start cutting it out this weekend.

I'm doing a Buck a Block quilt that will take a year to complete (one block a month for 12 months). I've made 12 samples of the outer square to try and decide which one I like best. I'm still not sure.

I've been perusing lots of quilting blogs.

I'm about to begin a Calendar Quilt. I need to get this caught up before any more of the year passes by.

I'm watching a book on ebay for selvage quilts because I can't figure out how to make them but I love them. If you sew and throw away your selvage ends, please save them for me!

This weekend is an online retreat for making an orange quilt. I don't have many orange fabrics but I'm wanting to do one.

The quilt shop here in town has some retro fabrics that will make great backs for my great-grandmother's quilt tops that I need to get from Mom.

There are many other quilts I want to start from my already large stash of quilt books and magazines.

I'm going to the Quilting Hens group on Tuesday evenings. I can't wait until summer when I can go all day long.

I'm going on a shop hop with the Quilting Hens at the end of March.

Yep, I think I have a bad case of quiltitis.
