You are making good use of  your bottomless well of novelties these days. Retirement is certainly a productive time for you!

I just finished my latest little project a 13" block I found in my UFO bin. Added a border in solids and quilted to death and now bound.  Just need a label and hanging sleeve. 

Yesterday I finished binding the bargello I made at the retreat. 

Now I am gonna quilt Dee's next and then 1 for Yetta. 

I need to rumage thru the UFO bin and see what to figure out next. I am determined to make 1 UFO into a top per month.

it does seem to be a bottomless well.  Semi-retirement - yes I am being productive.  But I need to spend some time painting cabinets soon - and then there is the tax returns to finish - yuck.  Sewing is much more fun. blush

Wow!  120x120 batting is huge!  That package will free up some space!

Yeah, it's a lot of real estate.  My frame is 10', so I have 120" max to play with.  However,  the entire 120" isn't usable.... the platform that carries the machine head hits the frame and about 4" on each end of the frame can't be reached by the needle. 

My backing is 110" wide and *just* fits.  I had to trim down the batting along one side 

That's about the widest top that I can accommodate.... anything wider and I'll be quilting by check, so that's a very good incentive to watch the size of the tops!
