Works For Me Wednesday - Working Under Pressure

Working under pressure works for me.

I am the ultimate procrastinator. I put everything off as long as I possibly can.

I started working on a baby quilt for my niece about a month and a half ago - and then I didn't work on it anymore. Well the baby shower is this coming Sunday - I have to finish the quilt.

The top was finished but it wasn't until today that I finally sandwiched and pinned the quilt and began machine quilting it. I am about 90% complete the quilting and then I have to cut the binding strips and then bind it and it will be done.

Baby quilt - quilted in the ditch (cus my machine is crappy!)

Binding fabric - yet to be cut
I planned to make a couple burp cloths and bibs as well. I have two finished burp cloths but no bibs yet.

Two burp cloths.
Leaving things til the last possible moment may not be great for everyone, but it gets me seriously motivated and I get things done.

I will post pictures of the finished goods sometime soon - probably at the last minute :)

To see what works for others, go to Rocks in my Dryer.

I'm so jealous. I've always wanted to quilt... frankly, I can't even figure out how to thread a sewing machine.

i'm always impressed with anyone who can quilt. i had to do a 9X9 square for my "Appalachian Crafts" class in college and it was no cake walk. :) keep up the good work.
