WIP Wednesday: A Whole Bunch of Stuff

I've been all over the place the past few weeks in terms of quilting. I've been working on a little of this and a little of that.

Remember this pile of fabrics?

Well I'm in the middle of turning it into a quilt. I just finished making all of the cross blocks and am testing out a bunch of different layouts.

I've been very busy making binding. On the right is the binding I picked for my 8-year-old quilt that I'm determined to finish. On the left is a whole lot of binding for some Quilts for Boston quilts. To give you an idea of how much binding that is, the binding on the right is 250" long and is for a quilt that finishes at 52" square. Hopefully this binding will help finish several Quilts for Boston quilts.

Up next, I have several more quilts to quilt for Quilts for Boston. I think this one will be going on my longarm next.  (Someone else pieced the top, I'm just going to quilt it.)
