Some Quilt Progress

The night before last my husband spent the evening at the temple and I stayed home with the kids. (I got to go last week while he stayed home.) The temple is about an hour and a half away from us so he didn't get home until 11:00. While he was gone I sewed and sewed and sewed.

I finished up my last squares for my nine patch quilt. Now I can start putting it together. But I really have no idea when that will happen.


And I finished putting together a quilt top for Ellen who is turning 5 today. I wanted to have the whole quilt done by today, but I'm not a very fast sewer and finding time to sew is a little difficult too, so it's not done yet. But she really likes the quilt top. I do too. She asked for a pretty quilt for her bed. Right now she has a brown and green comforter that works just fine, it just is not very girly at all. So I had her choose some fabric from my stash and I picked out one more to go with it. I picked out the green gingham with the pink flowers. Everything else was her idea, and they look really nice together.
