Friday night sewing with Heidi and Bobbi...(NOT!) ...Pansy Park

Here's a correction!  Last night was not Friday night sewing with Heidi and Bobbi.  I jumped the gun, Friday night sewing with Heidi and Bobbi is next Friday, February 18th! So, if you haven't signed up for it on the brown button on the side and go sign up now.  You have not missed it yet!  Sorry for the confusion, it was me that was confused, not you!  Have fun sewing, I'm back to it now!
Last night was the Friday night sew in...I got several things cut out but not sewn...I did get the final borders put on my Pansy Park quilt and it is now a flimsy!!!! Woo hoo, I'm dancing!  I've had this for about six years and I've worked on it off and on over those years.  I finished all the blocks last October at retreat and put it away one more time.  I am really trying hard to finish projects this year. By finish, I mean complete..quilted and all.  I am finishing up the tops first and I'll start quilting these soon.  I have a Little Gracie frame and a Brother Mid Arm machine and I've only quilted two small quilts with it.  I am not procrastinating using it, I just don't have the time to do everything.  These tops are on my mind and I want to get that done and I'll decide how they need to be finished later.  I have several friends that have Longarms and I can keep them in business this year too.  I do want to do alot of my tops myself and I have done several but I want to see these in my lifetime too.  I work full time and only have so much vacation time!  Gosh, I have a family too and other committments...I do manage my time wisely but there's just not enough of me to go around. Anyway, I'm through feeling guilty now that I've put it in writing, so I'll stop there.  Let's just say, I will be quilting these lovely tops soon and you'll see them again on my blog when they are quilts...So, here's my lovely Pansy Park quilt top.  It is a queen sized top and will fit lovely on my front bedroom guest bed.  Now, go sew and have a great Saturday!

Here's a close-up of the quilt...This was a Thimbleberrie's pattern and fabric...
