only nine quilts



The stupid pulled muscle won, and I only finished nine quilts. But seven of those quilts didn't exist at all a week ago, and the other two would've sat until who knows when. And isn't that the point of a challenge -- trying to do something you know won't be easy?

The two other times I've tried this ten-baby-quilts-in-ten-days madness, I've had a stack of partially started projects to start with. This time, I had one top and nine blocks and no real plans.

So I'm calling it a success. I'll try it again, but it's not going to be soon!

OMG! If I knew how to represent a standing ovation in computer typed symbols I'd be doing it here. Well done. Not only nine - but nine really pretty ones. Congratulations on a successful achievement of your goals.

Wow! I'm so impressed! Not just with the number of quilts you finished, but with their beauty, as well. ;)

I would love to have you join me for my linky party...Time Travel Thursday. The link goes up on Wednesday nights around 9PM EST. Hope to see you there.

Blessings,
