A baby quilt....

I didn't mean to go silent....but it's been hectic here (and truthfully, I don't think it will slow down anytime soon - maybe when the kids are grown and gone?)

My cousin is having a baby....we lost touch with that side of the family until last summer...and the shower was last Sunday.  I wanted to make her a quilt, but first, I had to FIND my sewing machine (and a place to sit and sew).

This is a small portion of my sewing/computer room - looks frightening, doesn't it?

Of course, me being the procrastinator thinker that I am...I started organizing it the Wednesday before the baby shower.  I have 1/2 of the room cleaned out to where i can sew and function, sort of.  I got up at 5 a.m. on Saturday to finish moving some furniture around (I've set myself a $100 budget to buy whatever I need to make this work for me).

So that I could be cutting and sewing by 8:30 a.m. on Saturday.  Jessie had a basketball game at 3 p.m., and we had a birthday party to go to in the evening, but I did manage to get the quilt cut, pieced, quilted and bound by 11 p.m. on Saturday.

I got up early on Sunday morning and washed and dried it.  Sorry I don't have a good picture of the whole quilt, but the light wasn't quite right when I had free moments on Saturday to take pictures, and Jessie and I had to get on the road by 11:15 on Sunday to pick up my mom and sister and drive to Westlake.

Hopefully after this weekend, I'll be back with pictures of my clean, organized sewing/computer room!!!  Because I have 2 Christmas quilts to finish and a fundraiser auction quilt to get done by March 10th! (and I am determined to not wait until March 8th to start a bed size quilt for the fundraiser!!!!)
