    Thursday morning I began a quilt for my first great granchild's baby shower on Saturday, that's right it's tomorrow. Pattern I chose was a simple one but everything was going wrong, many seams weren't meeting and when they did meet some of the corners were too small. To top it off every time I put my hand, elbow or arm down a piece of fabric stuck to them, even with the AC on it was sticky in the house. Finally gave up and made a simple squares design and finished the quilt this morning. Used blue, yellow and white fabrics as we won't know the sex of the baby until it's born, thought the color combo was unisex.

    Finally finished the queen size quilt I was making. Boy was it heavy when I gave the top and backing their final pressing. Glad to say it is at the quilters now and it's a big load off my mind. I was so tired of handling the quilt that I didn't take a photo before I left it with the quilter, will take one when I get it back. May

    Isn't always the way though? When time is short things start ganging up against you. The end result looks great. Well done. The little quilt has a history to tell now!

    amazing! and that always seems to happen! when there's not a date it has to be finished by, everything (usually) goes smoothly, but when there is a date it needs to be finished by, everything goes wrong! it turned out wonderful though and congratulations!

    Beautiful baby quilt. I'm sure the family will love it. Today is a great weather day here in NJ. Maybe some sewing after the shower? I'm struggling with a recipe for a picnic today. Hope that it turns out well.

    Thanks Cheryl, Great weather yesterday at the shower which was very good as it was held outdoors. Glad the good weather continuing today as we're having all the family over for a belated Father's Day BBQ. Good Luck with finding a new recipe for your picnic. Tired of the same old stuff but it's difficult to find recipes that everyone will like. May
