    I got word of a baby shower for a co-worker the day before the event as i had been out on vacation for the two weeks previous when hey announced the shower date. I got off work at 4:30 from the job and went to part time job from 5-9pm getting home about 9:30 pm. I took two pieces of material---one was red,white and blue in nautical print--other was a plain blue, layered them with batting--quickly tie knotted it and did a back to front binding. The recipient thought I had slaved away for ages instead of probably two hours at most.

    I'll tell you what I do under similar circumstances. If I don't have time to finish a quilt before a shower, I give the recepient a greeting card in which I promise them a quilt. That has worked I don't feel under as much pressure. If the shower is before the baby is born then I can wait til after he or she comes & include the birth date in the label that I always want to sew onto the back of the quilt. Just a suggestion.
