I really wanted to complete something---right away! Not sure why---just sometimes you want some completion in your life. I should have loaded one of Diane's quilts, but I wanted IMMEDIATE gratification. As I mentioned, I am making baby quilts to include in gift baskets for sick babies as the charity for the Guild. I have completed 9 quilt tops and cut out 3 more yesterday. In an effort to meet my sudden need for completion, I quilted 3 of the tops yesterday. Two of them are backed in a really nice flannel and one in a pretty green minky. The pattern is an old one that has been around since 2006 (Super Nine Patch). I got it out of an old magazine and remember watching the episode on Simply Quilts. You buy 1 yard each of 3 coordinating fabrics and get 3 quilts. A really simple and cost effective way to come up with a really cute quilt. This is my "go to" pattern for baby gifts! The cutting is a little tricky---you have to pay attention, but if you do it correctly the pieces fit together perfectly! The brightly colored quilt is actually made with a directional fabric, which isn't a good idea!, but I am making it anyway and it isn't too bad actually. I think the baby won't mind (at least I hope not). So, success---I feel like I have accomplished something, and for a good cause. I don't remember when these quilts are due, I need to check with the lead person, but I also have 2 friends that are pregnant, so I am also taking care of gifts as well. I feel like I have made good use of my 2 day Fall Break.
It is back to work tomorrow, so I have to get back to enjoying the remainder of my day. Thanks for dropping by! Have a great one!!!!
Well, I have to really do some work now.
