Zip, Zip, Done!!

Well, I hadn't planned on it, but this weekend I dove into a partially completed quilt block project that a colleague at work sent my way when she was downsizing.  She was parting with all of her quilting patterns, scraps and partially completed quilts.  What a score!

I was in the mood to sew but wasn't necessarily wanting to work on my Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll so I thought I would get a start on cutting out a new baby quilt.  Then I remembered this partially completed quilt project.

I decided I could do the applique and that would satisfy the sewing urge for the evening.  Got that done and needed more.  I should say that I had the house basically to myself since my daughter and husband were away at a conference all weekend and my son was home but plugged into his own computer with his own projects.  Play time for Mom!

To make a long story short, I finished the quilt top that night, AND got it quilted and bound it the next night.  It was a great weekend.  I can face Mondays so much easier when I've accomplished something on the weekend - especially something fun and charitable.

And here is my latest baby quilt for one of the newest members of our congregation:

I have no idea yet who the recipient will be but I am fairly certain it will be a girl!  :o)

Thank you to my friend Lisa who had the vision to start this project, and for her generosity in finding it a home in my studio where it could be lovingly brought to life, thereby giving me such great joy.

Happy quilting!
