    I started at 9:00 yesterday morning with just washed fabric. I worked my behind off! I was a sewing MACHINE! Uh, well... you get the picture.

    I got two tops done for my grandsons. Johnny just turned 1 and Gabe is 2 1/2. The crib sized quilt is totally finished!! Gabe's top is done and the flannel back is in the dryer trying to get a few wrinkles out. I have 4 more hours until I have to leave for 2 combined b-day parties. Can I get the quilt done???

    Going to jump in the shower now to save time later. Keeping my fingers crossed that the long arm doesn't throw fits like last night.

    Pam,
    You will have so much fun giving these darling quilts to your grands. Have fun and relax. It sounds like you are sewing yourself silly!

    Looking good! You are a machine! Maybe you and Eddie should have a contest to see who can complete the most quilts in an alloted time! LOL :)

    It's all done! Two quilts in two days, I can't believe it. I am exhausetd and my house looks like a tornado went through and blew scraps of fabric all over.

    The quilt inspector was taking a nap and wouldn't move for me to take a pic. I flapped the quilt at her and she just opened one eye and looked at me... right, like that's going to make me move.

    I'll be a little late to the party but, it's more of a BBQ and adult thing too so it's going to be going all day and into the night.

    I took the quilt off the frame and went to trim and square it. I am amazed that it actually came off the frame as square as it went on.

    It looks to me like it's being pulled out of square when it's on the frame but I guess it goes back to what it wants to be. Maybe why it's so hard to get something square when it doesn't start out that way. A lot of wetting and setting and making it stay.
