Down to the wire?

Here's Marbella, month 6. We are doing a mystery quilt at Stewart's Sewing too, and I still need to get this month's work done. Too busy doing a few projects for Christmas presents that I am not revealing at this point...

I did get the final block of Merry and Bright finished too. When will I put the whole thing together???

I've been trying to get done quilting this thing so we could use it before Christmas is over--it's the Binding Tool Star from MSQC. I am finished quilting--yay--and was working on the binding in this picture. I actually did finish it last night and will post a finished pic soon.

Today's sewing will be those Christmas projects and then it will be time to clean up the sewing room so some of my kids can stay in there when they come next week. Now, that clean up will be a major project in itself!

Blocks are almost all done--now to put it together

The Merry and Bright blocks are almost all finished! Yea! I only have block 17 left to sew (it's cut out) and then I need to put the whole thing together. The 18 setting blocks are finished too. Easy-peasy, right? Ha, ha, ha... finding the time between other projects is the key.
(I should have cropped this one before putting it on here, but...)

These blocks are month 5 of the Marbella BOM through my LQS, Stewart's Sewing in Mt. Zion, IL. I'm all caught up with them and ready for month 6 (maybe tomorrow). Love these colors!

I really like doing these BOWs and BOMs but they take time away from other stuff I want/need to do. Dilemma....
