Remember this quilt top?
Mom-to-be was due Feb. 13th. Yesterday she had a little boy.
It still looks like this...
And do any of you remember this top?
Late last week, the hubby was asked if I'd donate a quilt to help raise funds for the Relay for Life team at his work. I said sure, thinking this quilt would be perfect.
Today I got an e-mail. They want to give it away Feb. 9th.
This one also still looks like the photo too...
It needed a back. Shopping!
I'm not sure I like it, but it will do. It was in with the Easter fabrics, though, so shhhh!
And last night I realized that I'd agreed to make a wedding quilt for one of the hubby's good friends who is getting married this summer. I like this one.
It's called "Serendipity" and was in the August 2002 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.
It's too small, though, so some figuring will have to be done while waiting (hoping) for a good sale on fabric.
(Holy cow look at all those pieces. Why do I do this to myself?)
The hubby also has a good friend at work who's wife is pregnant and due this summer. When they find out the sex, add another to the pile.
(I met this guy a few weekends ago and he asked me, 30 minutes later, if I'd make him a quilt! He doesn't know his baby will get one and I'm not making any promises to make HIM one just yet!)
And there is still a quilt I'd like to quilt for on my couch to replace the Christmassy one. And three other quilts floating in my head I'd like to make for Christmas gifts for this year.
So maybe I should stop working on the UFO challenges ahead?
(I didn't do it on purpose!)
But I think for the next 30 minutes until bedtime, I'm going to put my feet up and read a little.
PS Yes, I DO sleep. 8 hours a night if possible because noone likes the person I turn into when I don't get them.
