our guest room

All I can say is that it’s a good thing we don’t have guests too often. The guest room, and especially the guest bed, has become the storage spot for all the unfinished quilts. Some of these unfinished quilts are old… in fact, one is the very first quilt top I made (and then never finished!). For one reason or another they remain in various stages of completion spread out over the guest room bed.

This is the first one – a block quilt I made using some of the first fabrics I ever bought. I really like the quilt, and in fact, it’s all sandwiched and ready to be quilted, but I haven’t gotten around to it. Mostly because it’s kind of large. But even though it’s large, it’s going to end up a strange size – long enough for a queen sized bed, but once it shrinks, it will not be wide enough. Since I know this is the case, I keep thinking that I should take the time to fix it rather than just quilt it and accept the strange size.


And then there’s the second quilt I started, again, another big one, but not quite big enough. It’s a modified coin quilt, and it probably just needs another row or two to make it large enough… I really should get on that.


This next one is also ready to be quilted – sandwiched and everything! – but I can’t decide how I want to quilt it. I had a lot of great suggestions when I asked about it way back here. I’m thinking I’ll probably go with a spiral square…


The bird quilt is also ready to be quilted – you’ve already seen this one this week, so here’s a little glimpse of the back. I’m hoping to have time to get this one done this weekend.


And you know what? Instead of working on this pile, I started a new quilt. There’s no hope for me!
