Sewing Weekend

I feel like I had my own little sewing retreat! I got a lot accomplished. My hubby was busy with homework from on-line classes so I locked myself away in my room to get some projects from one step to another. (Notice I didn't say they are finished!) lol
I got borders on my Bread & Butter blocks. Yay!
Then I pieced the backing and got the batting cut. I even remembered to cut the binding!! That's a first!! Usually I have to scramble to match the binding because I don't remember to do it when piecing the border but I did this time!
Then I pieced the backing for this project. I just used Kona white because this is a table topper and I couldn't seem to find anything that I liked on the back. Cut the batting for this one too so it's ready to be quilted.
Then I pieced the back for this project. This is the 9 patch 30's top that I did when my sister was visiting in July. I had 10" 30's squares in my stash. They were for the back for another project but I ended up using something else instead and they were just sitting in the drawer. They were a perfect fit for this top. Got the batting cut and wahlah, #250 of tops to be quilted. Well, not really 250 but it sure the heck feels like it! Now all I need area a few hundred "quilting" weekends!
