Quilt a day #27 and a mess!

Some unexpected things happened today but at least I looked at the linen closet I need to reorganize. I also got out my box of strips and I'm contemplating making string quilts for charity.

I did finish a baby quilt this morning and pieced two more baby quilts so I have made some quilting progress. I sent for a kit from the Downy company and it was all precut and and very easy to sew. They send the backing also. This is the finished baby quilt. It's got square corners really!Here is a picture of my overflowing strips box. I think I can make a couple quilts out of it! This is a VERY embarrassing picture! This is my walk-in linen closet in it's current state. It started at Christmas (those quilts are on the bottom of the heap) and for some odd reason it's just exploded. I will take an after picture when I get it done this week.

Wow - amazing picture - somehow I never picture you that way. LOL I am impressed when people show befores - looking forward to the after.

Lots of friends are doing the Downy quilts - what a great project.

Thanks for being brave and showing us your before pic --- something we can all relate to. And then your after pic will be inspiration!

I like your wavy quilting on the Downy quilt -- did you stitch in the ditch, too? I have one of their kits to finish up this weekend. I can't wait to see the "after" photo of your closet... maybe it will encourage me to make some progress with mine!
