Back from the missing

What a week. I can't even blame hubby he didn't come home last weekend. I've been FINALLY getting the love quilts for my friend, Robin's family pieced and quilted.
Of course last week the back hall way looked like this:

Scarey huh? And that's not including the one I was still piecing at the time.
I found fabric in my closet- I never put fabric in my closet of the girl's favorite colors yellow,pink and purple....here it is with the alternating blocks I'm using for the quilt along project with Amanda Jean last year.



To me, the fabric looks like Peeps Colors:


I had the yellow ones for breakfast while on the phone with Mel.

Anyhow I got 2 of the 3 quilts quilted and Mr Juki decided to act up- here's the sick Juki waiting to go to the Spa for a tuneup:
.
Lucky for me Katie has a new Juki and let me break hers in for her :)
I got the binding on one of the quilts- this is the youngest ones. Her favorite color is pink:)
.
So my goal for tomorrow is to get a second quilt trimmed and binding attached and then at night I can sew them down. Hopefully I can pick up the juki Wednesday and quilt the father's quilt and get that one bound also and maybe - just maybe deliver all 4 this weekend. Then is the push to finish the hand quilting on Buffalo Troubles for hubby......

Wow - you sure have been busy!! I wondered where you were.
Lovely quilts!

Peeps? I don't think I've ever seen them here.

Is a Juki just a good brand name or does it do a special kind of sewing/quilting? The quilts are lovely.

I'm loving plain colors like this quilt. Modern but classic. I have the same peeps on my blog today, too!
