I am very excited because my Amish House blocks are all finished - all 12 of them! Hubbie left at 10:15 this morning for a golf tournament and I headed right to my sewing room. My goal was to stay put until my houses were done. Easy-peasy!!!
The flying geese block was much easier than the last one because the geese were larger. But that blue/green pinwheel was a tough one!
My next steps will be to find border/binding/backing material for this quilt. The pattern shows multiple narrow borders, then sashing, followed by narrow borders and then a wide one. We'll see if that ends up being MY PLAN. . .

This blue and white quilt was actually for sale. Each year there is one section with quilts that are available for sale. Since we didn't get there until about 12:30 I'm sure we had already missed the best bargains.
Shoes, shoes, shoes! Isn't this one fun? Appliqued high heels. And each shoe was unique. The great border and backing fabric added to the whole impact.

I picked up 2 quilts and a table runner that I had Carly quilt for me. As always, they turned out beautiful. Here is a closeup of the quilting from the back of my Stepping Stones quilt. As soon as the binding is on I'll show the whole thing.
I worked on binding on Sunday afternoon until I was sick of it. I cut, connected, folded, and ironed about 75 feet of binding. So now the binding is ready to put onto 3 quilts and some other smaller projects that are laying around.
