Super Saturday

As promised, something to show today - this is the finished mini quilt for the Miniature Booty Swap (special holiday edition) - I finished quilting it today, attached the binding & sleeve and then even managed to get the binding sewn down while watching Olivia's class perform in a performing arts festival (or, more precisely, between watching all the different acts perform). I do need to attach a label and then round up one or two bits to put in with it before it goes overseas, but on the whole, it's done. Whoo hoo. And that's all the mini quilts I have at present to finish - though I should be receiving the Spring Fling Round Robin soon, and will then need to quilt that.


Also did a variety of other work - some paper piecing started, which I will show when I finish - some more Amish houses and a start on the November birthday block. I also did this week's journal quilt - week no 51, if you can believe it - next week is the last one. I think I am glad to see the end of this project... And I put together 36 of the cracker blocks I received from the block lotto into a little baby quilt (well, the top, anyway). There were some more blocks, but unfortunately, some of them were too small to be usable, so I have set them aside to pass to someone else to perhaps make a Project Linus blanket from.

You accomplish so much between all of your Mom duties. I get a lot done but I don't have anyone I have to take care of! My husband even does the cooking! Love the little blue and white quilt - very winter.

Your miniature quilt is beautiful - it reminds me of a block I made for Lilebeth's Garden.
