Just 5? LOL!!! I have >1 bin!

I quilted and bound a dozen 6 months ago, so this is just what I have done in the last 6 months

Wow!  That turned out absolutely stunning!  I love it!  What is the name of the pattern again?  I'm too lazy to go back and look.

I decided to put myself on a piecing diet.  I haven't counted, but there( were way too many tops stacking up so I went on a quilting marathon.  I got 12 done ( baby/kid/nap) size.  They are trimmed and the binding is made.  Now to go on a binding marathon.  No plans for them - just for donation, but it is nice to see a "done" pile.

You created those while I am still plodding along with the red and neutral strips project (plus the sixteen-patch leader and ender project) which both seem like Eternity* projects.

(*That's a category beyond Pirate's Forever projects that I just invented. stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes)

Rick Rack.  Here is how I pieced mine to minimize seams.  In their video MSQC has you cut strips.   The trickiest part is keeping the triangles going the correct direction.  I ended up piecing one, then laying out the pieces on top of that one to help me orient them correctly, sewing the top section, then the bottom, then the narrow strip of white/hst/dark in between them.

I spent several hours last night watching embroidery videos at  Very relaxing.  And now I'm excited to start adding embellishment to my Christmas applique.

But you don't know how many months these have been "aging" before I got to them.  I like that phrase--Eternity projects.  I have a few of those.
