    My nephew's wife called me last Thursday and needed a lap quilt by this Thursday so found this top I had put together over the summer, so I sandwiched, quilted and bound it ....finished it Saturday and delivered it yesterday.

    Thanks all! Well, I had to hurry with this so I could get back to my holiday projects! LOL But I just couldn't turn her down....it is for a woman who just lost her baby so that pulled on my heart strings...such a sad thing!

    I'm STILL working on my DGD's quilt! putting the final borders on it today! Should be up in the frames by tomorrow! I'm SO excited...it is turning out just like I hoped it would!!! I think I can, I think I can!

    Very pretty, and another example of how projects sometimes wait til the time is right.

    I've heard the pattern called both "Buzzsaw" and "Aunt Betty's Attic".....

    As you can see the Buzzsaw uses 3 strips and the ABA uses 5 (which is what I did)
