Off to be quilted!

Jess dorm quilt top is finished and dropped off at the quilter's.  (Some day I'll have a long arm but that's another story...) I asked her to have it done pretty quickly so that I could get it back and bound in time for parent's weekend at SFA! I may be doing some handwork in the car on the trip down, but she'll get it! Here's some pics of it laid out on the queen-sized bed in the guest room. It certainly came out bright! ;oD

When it is all finished I'll get someone or a couple someones to hold it and we'll do a nice photo or two. I also want to get some of it on her bed in her dorm room and with her too! The top was totally put together using 2 1/2 inch strips.  It's a cozy quilt shop pattern called butterfly blooms. They have the best patterns! I always like them.

I am busy finishing up some Happy Blocks for the September and October swaps so I will post some photos when they are finished. But now I have to get to bed as 5:30 am comes pretty early! I have to get Michelle to the pool by 6 am to swim tomorrow morning.

Night, night.
