Why is it?
Do you ever put off that last detail, the one thing that would give you a finish? For me, sometimes it's turning the binding, or adding the last border, or piecing a back together, or making the binding. I've tried to figure out why I procrastinate when a finish (in my book that's having a flimsy, back, and binding ready for TBQ) would feel so good. The only reason I can come up with is that when it's done I have to say goodbye to something that has consumed a lot of my thought, creativity, and time. Like saying goodbye to a good friend.
I spent most of yesterday cleaning up loose ends. Meaning, I was trying to find my work table ... again. It turned out to be a very productive day; I said goodbye to a bunch of friends by making backs and bindings for these little gems.

|Waffle Town - 40 x 54|
|That Purple Project - 60 x 60|
None of these were monster projects; one even used a single width of fabric. But they had accumulated in a pile on my table and it was time to move them to the next stage: To Be Quilted (TBQ). It takes a lot less space to store flimsies than finished quilts ... just sayin'.
I also prepped this little mini to be quilted by me!
