What else could I do?

Very hot days + air conditioning = lots of time sewing, resulting in good progress on some projects and some finishes.
My Market Day Wallet is finished



I finished this quilt as well.

I started this quilt in a class, "Fun with Precuts" at Sew This and That in 2010.  I did quite a bit of the top in the class, then was a bit unsure how to finish it off.  I finished off the top mid last year.  I had a voucher to have it quilted professionally, but between the quilter's schedule and my being away it took until early December to have it in to be quilted.  It now has its binding on and is completely finished.

 This is a beautiful range of fabrics, "Bliss" by Bonnie and Camille (Moda).  I started with a layer cake, charm packs and some yardage - which I used for my sashings, and the border. From that I have 2 quilts (when the other is finished).  This quilt is 70 inches square.

I have also pinned 3 more quilts and a wall hanging.  I guess I will be spending a bit of time quilting this week.
