I think I can still pull this off. I have until June 1st (ideally) to get this pieced and quilted. My goal is to be done with the top and send it off to ‘someone’ by Saturday, May 25th. I have seen several quilters advertising really fast turnaround times, and I don’t need custom quilting – so here’s hoping!
I have completed two more blocks and these bright, cheery colors are just enormous! These blocks are soooo big! Love it!
Really love this red check design in the pattern!
Ok , so I said “finished”, but this one is still in three separate rows. Pratically done – right?
Here is the new combination, selected by my lovely assistant Nora:
And a final, last picture of the two blocks together:
Four blocks done, only five more to go!
Good news for me… we decided to postpone the Mother-in-Law visit from Memorial Day weekend. Now I will have all three days at home to play! I know, it sounds like I don’t want to drive 3 hours with two small kids, sleep on an airbed and constantly worry that the dog will pee on our stuff. But – when we do visit, it will be warm enough to swim as a family and there are a lot of nice kids parks.
Hope you have great expectations for a weekend and time to do what you love!
