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.

The quilt projects are amazing. When did you discover you had that talent?

Please give a big hug to my sweet Ellen girl. Sure do love her!
