In spite of the excitement, I did get going on a couple of WiPs that I want to complete in the next couple of weeks. My string blocks are sewn together and I have some fabric chosen for the border that I want to put around them.
I also decided to finish a much older WiP , my braided quilt, so that I can give it to a friend who is a new grandma and needs a "grandma" quilt! I first blogged about this quilt back in November of 2013! It is made from yardage of Hello Sunshine that I bought from Connecting Threads in the fall of 2013, and a few additional fat quarters from my stash. I think it will be a great quilt for a little boy!
Friday, I had the chance to piece a backing for this quilt and baste the layers together. Hopefully, I will have a chance to start quilting it this week.. But first, I am off to the hospital to see how my hubby is feeling today. Hopefully, life can get back to normal pretty soon!
