Finish it up! Friday check in...on Monday again :)

So, it's time to see how that list is looking... And I have to confess, I've not made anywhere near as much progress as I would like - I am always hopeful of time to stitch but I just don't seem to find the time that I dream of.

Anway, the list - here are the items I've progressed:
** Officer Plod's birthday quilt (for the significant birthday he had in February 2010! oops) - only one border to put on then off to the longarm quilter - delivered to quilter. Will need binding on return.
** Australasian Bee - bee blocks - finished one month, two months to complete:
** 1st Wednesday Block Swap - bee blocks - finished one month, two months to complete

** 3x6 Bee - bee blocks for 2nd and 3rd quarter - sent 2nd qtr blocks, 3rd qtr not proceeding - complete
** Binding on quilt for small (given to her unbound for Christmas) - stitched and on her bed again, this time with border - complete
** Red 1930's quilt (for me!!!) - quilt myself then bind - will deliver this to the quilter this week (shocking picture - this is before it was put together with the border)
** Bathmat - cut out, needs to be pieced and quilted - pieced and quilted, binding stitched to front, needs to be stitched to back
** Pillows for two friends birthdays (can't say who, they may be looking) - completed one pillow and found a different gift for the other friend.
** Heather Ross Munki Munki log cabin - finish blocks, piece, to quilter - more blocks assembled, many to go... 
** Baby quilt - to quilter and bind and then actually give to baby - at quilter, to be picked up.

Items still on the waiting list with no progress:
** Civil War repro quilt for my gran (nine-patch) - blocks are made, need to piece together and get to the longarm quilter
** Celebration of significant life event quilt for my Mum (large strip hexies) - cut out, need to piece and then off to quilter
** Birds quilt - piece my blocks received in the 1st Wednesday Block Swap
** Buildings quilt - piece my blocks received in the Australasian Bee
** Scrappy string quilt - finish blocks, piece, to quilter
** Lyrebird embroidery (design by Kate Ward)
** Vintage sheet star quilt (for my bed!!) - piece blocks, to quilter

You have made fabulous progress and I'm so glad to see that I'm not the only one who has unfinished Australasian Quilt Bee blocks to do!!

Ha, ha - I've just realised that it's your block that I still have to do!! I have finally found some inspiration and hope to get onto it tonight!!
