Ready for Quilting

I made the last cut and got my blocks basted so they are now headed towards the pile of blocks that are ready to be quilted.

What other projects are in that pile? I was wondering that myself and after a quick search it looks as if there are only 2 other projects in that pile now:

the one I started last fall with hand dyed fabrics

and one I started many years ago as an experiment. I had some metallic fabric that I wanted to try out and figured it would be the perfect project to try metallic threads on too.

It's been a learning experience. Mostly I learned I will never use metallic threads for decorative stitching again.

I think I'm going to make a goal of finishing the metallic one in time to put it in this year's CASA auction in November.

P.S. The blue & yellow one I was wondering what I should do with is headed to my dad's cousin who was recently in a terrible car accident.

EXCELLENT! I love those hand-dyed blocks! As for metallic, I guess you don't want me to send you my spools huh? I can't wait to see how the blue and yellow turns out! Good job! How many UFOs are left?
btw, I hope to have my sewing machine humming by next week! Wish me luck!

I love your choice of colors for the fall quilt, but alas, like you, I have fits with metallic threads. I am sure the blue and yellow one will be welcomed with open arms!
