Projects Galore...................

The fabric for the quilt with an urgent deadline finally arrived this week so I've been able to start working on it.   Not looking forward to the rush that I've now got to get it finished up and back to where it needs to be very quickly.   Did get one block finished up, and am planning on working on it again this evening after I get home from Thanksgiving Dinner w/friends and family.   Hopefully will make a lot of progress on it this weekend - well when I'm not working at the store or working on grading papers and tests.

In other quilty endeavors I've got the design drawn up for a wedding present that needs to be made by next summer.   Made a test block, and have decided on background color.   The quilt will be scrappy and will finish out at 72" by 84" before borders.   The plan is to have it finish at a queen-sized quilt.   If I'm counting right there are about 180 6" blocks in the design...........good thing I love the kiddo who this is for.   ........lol....

Gratitudes:
1. Spending time with friends at Thanksgiving.
2. Being able to spend time quilting and designing.
