Baby Quilt Marathon – are you ready?

The Marathon starts tomorrow!

Here is an Excel Sheet for you to track your hours: Hmm, I can’t seem to embed the excel sheet … If you want one that will add your hours up, email me & I’ll email the sheet to you

Here are the quilts I plan to finish: 2 strippy quilts (only 1 picture) and 3 star quilts.

  • Both strippy quilts need borders, sandwiching, quilting and binding
  • The first star quilt needs to be webbed, borders, sandwiching, quilting and binding
  • The 2nd star quilt needs the backing enlarged, sandwiching, quilting and binding
  • The 3rd quilt is webbed and needs to be sewn together, borders, sandwiching, quilting and binding

There is a link-up at the end of this post.

Design Wall:  


I have started piecing my August Island Batik project … and of course, I can’t show you until the actual blog hop. Sorry … I know you hate secrets!


A few weeks ago, I showed you the border of a commissioned quilt. I’m now quilting the said border. And then it needs a label and binding and then it will be finished.

    • Hi!
      Goals really help me to focus … otherwise it’s a little of this and a little of that …
      Good luck working on your 2 baby quilts (or is that just 2 quilts?)
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  1. I posted the marathon on my blog this morning and didn’t realize that tomorrow is actually the 1st!!! I am glad I already have some projects ready to go! Mine are not UFOs so I will be starting from scratch but I have everything I need to get going. It will be interesting to see what 26 hours can produce.

    • Hi Pamela,
      Whoo Hoo!!!
      It’s good to be ready! I have no idea what I can get done in 26 hours … I guess we’ll all find out by tracking out time!
      And thank you for mentioning the marathon on your blog!
      Happy Marathoning / Quilting! 🙂


    • Hi Donna,
      Thank you! It will certainly help a little with stash usage (not all fabric is from my stash)! And, I will (hopefully) accomplish 3 UFO finishes and finish 2 new stars. Whoo Hoo … if I get them done.
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
