I will be going up to the quilt shop tomorrow but not to work.  I will be participating in a Project Linus sew day.  Our local coordinator is going to be there so I have made arrangements with her to swap my 29 finished fleece blankets and some quilts for the bags of scraps she has for me and some more labels.  One of the regular teachers at the shop is leading the sew day.  She is going to show me how to do partial seams.  (I think that is what she called it anyhow) Last time we had a sew day, we all did jelly roll 1600 quilt tops out of a bunch of kid print strips that Sherrie cut for the event.

Yes, I actually did for most of my day on and off. I started by cutting fabric and then sewed a block together for my friendship quilt.

I'm so excited to say that yes, I did work on a quilt today! It's been very slow going in the last few years after my arm was broken in a car accident in 2010. I've had a LOT of trouble with it, so my quilting has slowed way down. But, I finally worked on a baby quilt I am making for my sister, who is due in October. Nothing major, but it's looking really pretty. I am piecing "subway" blocks (8"x3") as the top and I have hedgehog fabric for the backing (she has a hedgehog theme.) I got to sew for about 2 hours tonight and the top is 70% pieced and almost done. I can't wait to see it finished. I will post pics when I am done.

Today I finished the top of a baby quilt.  It is a Garden Lattice made from the Debbie Mumms monkey and cupcake fabric.  I am calling it "Monkeys on a fence".  Here is a pic.

Donna, the baby quilt is really cute!  I didn't get to work on a quilt today, unless you count finishing the binding on my  last entry for the fair - then went to the fair and took in all the entries - they will be judged tomorrow, then we have to display them for the week - next Sunday, we will take them down and turn them back to the owners.  Today was the first time in years, or maybe ever, that we had a cooler day for this - usually it's stinking hot - no A/C in the fair buildings - today was comfy, even cool after it rained some.  Always enjoy fair days so that makes it even better!  Hope to be able to send a few pictures of the Quilt display.

Thank you all for the accolades .  And I even have 3 months to quilt it.  I was putting it together tonight and it measures 44 by 44  and the material I am using for the backing is only 42 wide.  So my question is, should I cut two widths and have a seam down the middle for add a piece to one or both ends to make up the difference.  I am a little scared of adding a piece to the end because if I dont line it up exactly then the added piece will be wider on one end then the other.  So what do I do?  Help.

Donna there is not a thing worng with piecing your back . Many of us have to do this  As I can't afford the wide backing. by the time you get it quilted  you will hardly be able to tell.

Sheesh! Y'all were busy over the weekend!

Donna - That's an adorable baby quilt and you do whatever looks good to you for the back!

Jennifer - Good for you, girl!

Judy - I knew you were a softie! Great job and you're a terrific friend to make that quilt!

Oh my - too many to keep track of, I'm afraid! I spent the weekend getting some machine embroidery done and organizing stuff for the NE Ohio retreat this week! Organizing??? HAH! That's a joke! I'll end up throwing it all in a tub and scooting out the door, I'm sure!

Donna:
So what do I do? 

Donna, I would slit it in half and add some blocks or a strip of fabric down the center.  Leftover blocks from the front would be cute.  Or strips of fabric the same colors in your backing.
