I don't have anything new to share from the customer gallery so today I just have a brief update.
Yesterday was the follow up visit for my annual physical. I love having a doctor who will sit and talk with me for an hour. I got a good report so what did I do? Came home and ate a bunch of junk food to celebrate. I'll be back on track today, I promise.
Later in the day I finished quilting these 2 veterans quilts. I pieced the tops while I was on vacation in August They are the last 2 quilts from my marathon veterans quilt piecing this summer. The fabrics are all from the same line. After I got them quilted I had a couple of hours left before bed time so I went ahead and put on the binding. My friend, Becky, has volunteered to bind my other quilt so I'm officially done with my own veterans quilts for the year.
The backing is a pretty faded denim blue and I quilted it with one of my few go-to pantographs with stars and ribbons. I can quilt both quilts in about 2 - 3 hours.
Today my plan is to paint the base for the floor cloths and get 2 more veterans quilts loaded. I only have 6 left to quilt and I'll be totally caught up! After those I will quilt one of Mom's quilts and then load my oldest UFO to quilt. Paula Nadelstern's newest fabric line is also on the way for me to make a sample quilt and I'm close to figuring out a couple of designs for this year's Christmas postcards. It's going to be a busy weekend and a buys month!

Congrats on doing all of your veterans quilts for the year. (I am assuming you finished as planned.)

The quilts turned out wonderful! I can't imagine what junk food you ate since you are allergic to everything! My go to reward after I go to the doctor is sushi. Philadelphia rolls are my favorite.
