3 Weeks Until Owen Arrives... Quilting Quickly!!!

I have 3 weeks and 3 days until Owen arrives. I figure after that, I'll have little time for quilting for a few years... So I'd better get very busy right now.

I've cranked out a good number of quilt tops. I am going today to get backings for the house quilt, a quilt for Parthena's baby in case it's a boy, a big batik charm square picnic blanket for me and the boys, and my moda half-square triangle quilt. I also need to get some backing for one more sham.

One of my two machines is on the fritz. Very frustrating. I'm also needing needles for my machines. The ones I'm using haven't been replaced in AGES.

My goal is to finish the following quilts very soon:
-Kristine's Batik and Kristine's Batik Baby Quilts (need border and backing- Am waiting to see if it's a boy or girl)
-Charity Quilt (from a kit I picked up)
-Wyatt's Black and White Yellow Brick Road needs borders
-Shams for the Bullseye quilt
-Will try to quilt Owen's Yellow Brick Road
-Will try to quilt my flower strip quilt
