How many quilts on the bed are too many???

Bonnie Hunter just posted and asked "What's on your bed?". (thank you for the picture Miss Bonnie).  Well right now it is a jumbled blanket mess. I must admit I don't make the bed every morning. I get up and for the most part 'go' to get to school early and gather my thoughts (though that excuse does not apply today). I can't even think about packing lunch at 6 am... my brain doesn't think that way.

I love quilts, and right now there are three, yes I said three, on the bed. I like to build my nest, my cocoon so to speak, and if I need to kick them off I can.. or drag them back up over me.

So how many on the bed is too many? My kids say you can never have too many blankies... works for me.

Finally a finish...

My friend, Donna, has quite a few of my quilts in her posession to quilt for me and every once in a while surprises me with a phone call.

This trip around the world is probably three years in the making. I just finished binding it this morning and it will belong to Abby.

Now to enjoy this lovely spring day.

I get by with a little help from my friends .......

 I decided to spend a cloudy Sunday morning working on putting binding on a quilt I just got back from Donna. Right now she is in posession of about half a dozen finished tops and backs and every once in a while gets one on the frame for me.

Anyway, I like to trim my excess backing/batting down to about an inch from the edge of the top, then put the binding on by machine. Beth was helping me man-handle the quilt on the table. Smokey was supervising all of this so Beth decided to make her look the part.

Can you hear the cat say "Oh geeze......."

Have a good day!
