    I know that I am nuts but I have to get 2 baby quilts done by Saturday noon. I have most of the fabric for one of them and all the fabric for the other. I am working on both one is mostly done piercing the other I have yet to get close to 1/2. The piercing done. Here is the first top that I have. The other is just a few squares that are sewn together and not in complete blocks yet. Heres the funny thing. I ran out of one of the green fabrics just 10 2x3.5" rectangles short. So ran and got some. Yeah! Good thing they still had them.

    what do ya think?

    Amazing ! I find it truly amazing that folks can do a quilt in a matter of days.....I'm just slow ! Congrats on being able to find more fabric, with my luck it would be something that had been discontinued the moment I bought it !

    The OTHER amazing is that I know where Blue Springs MO is and have actually been through there ! While recovering from heart attack and stroke with a daughter in MO, she would take me on "day" trips along with trips into Chesterfield to the cardiologist !

    That's very nice. It is amazing how much you can get done when you have a challenge.

    Sleep - who needs sleep? I had a deadline of Saturday by the time the post office closed, so I stayed up until 2 am Friday night, then got up a few hours later to finish. Not my favored method of getting things done, but it worked!

    How beautiful...I understand why you need a little break, and some motivation too! Just think of how happy and excited the recipients will be...you're doing an amazing job and you are going to make some babies very happy and cozy with those gorgeous quilts! ;)
