Finishing Touches

I have finally  been really working and finishing up some things.  I put borders on my Pumpkin Hill quilt - it is now ready for quilting:

I got bindings on my two plaid quilts.  Here's quilt one, I called it Mad for Plaid.  It's a double friendship star quilt with piano key borders.

I got these plaids in an exchange and used up every single bit of them in the blocks, border and back:
And finally, my Plaid Madness quilt.  These blocks were from a block exchange held during one my guild retreats.  I added the large bear plus a few other blocks to fill out the space.
Finishing things makes me feel good, like I'm finally accomplishing something.  Things have been really depressing lately, so this was a bit of what I needed.  Why am I depressed? - the sun has been shining, we are all healthy here, little things are going well, the big things seem to be taking care of themselves... no reason for it.  Time to shed it all and get out of my funk.  Finishing those bindings was a first step in the right direction...
