I finished the feathers quilt top!!!! Not only is it all sewn together, it is basted too!! It feels so good to have gotten this far and actually reached the timeline goal I set for myself. I am so glad it is basted before we go so that I just have quilting/binding to do when we return. It was so hard to get a picture of such a large quilt top (90" x 108"), but I tried. I had to clear out pretty much my entire living room to have space to baste it and I was still up against furniture that I couldn't move. Definitely my largest quilt.

I still have a ways to go to get this beast quilted and bound, but I have the binding fabric and even some quilting ideas. So hopefully I will get that done fairly soon after thanksgiving. It looks like I may even get all the gifts done *crosses fingers* but more on that Wednesday when I actually write it down and see how bad it is.

Now I am off to go to story time at the library for the last time here, and then drive to visit family for the week. I can't believe that when we get back, we will pretty much have 3 weeks until we have to be packed and out of here and begin the transition to down south!! It is coming too fast, but at the same time I am ready for it to be over! I'll be back Wednesday with my list of insanity :)
