Busy, Busy, Busy

I have been hoping for more quilts and seems like everyone is coming out of the woodwork asking for quilting lately. I am so excited! I think I am gonna be pretty busy this month and likely next month as well. I am beginning to feel like people are finding me.

There are gonna be some decisions along the way as I have been getting requests for some (quilts from scratch) lately. One person only gave me colors and she wants something traditional.............nothing else. Now that is gonna be a challenge but then I love challenges. Figure I will get on my thinking cap and come up with a few options from simple to somewhat more complex in a variety of prices and see which one she likes.

My big challenge is going to be trying to get something ready for Machine Quilters Showcase. I downloaded the entry forms from the shows after seeing the links on Suzanne's site. Figure if I keep a schedule and get going now I will be ready. I do have a pile of my tops so just need to quilt that is easier said than done because my last quilt logged 40 hours of quilting time on the longarm. Thank goodness for zippered leaders so I was able to work between customer quilts. Now to decide on a top!

I'm very glad things are hopping for you! Sometimes I wish things wld slow down a bit, but dare say it out loud, cause I'm afraid it would dry up to nothing!

Good for you getting work ready for MQS! I need to get busy with that myself...just as soon as I get a minute..LOL!

Are you planning to go this year? Mary & I will be there...we'd love to get a chance to meet you in person.

It's funny how it all seems to hit at once isn't it.Mine has just kicked into gear too, and suddenly I am really busy.

I would love to get something ready for MQS but I am not sure I am going to have time :(
