I finished the quilt! I'm so happy. My daughter wants to give it as a gift to one of her co-workers who is expecting. Notice the yellow binding. I had cut yellow binding strips for the king-sized denim quilt that I made a few weeks ago. But I didn't use them on the quilt after all. I made a turn-over-from-the-back edge on it instead. However, I found a use for all of those strips in the next few quilts that I made. So they came in very handy after all.
I had no idea of the amount of different juvenile fabrics I had on hand. I had about 40 different prints. A couple of them are used up in this quilt, but I still have the majority of them for next time.
There's two important things to blog about today. Of course, we are all so sorry about the earthquake in Haiti. I not only sent in a donation, but I counted up the change that I had in my personal Charity Box, and I sent that amount in also. I sent it to a charity that I trust will use the money where it will do the most good. And then on Monday it's Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday. So a salute to his memory is in order. He was a great American.
I'm grinding my teeth because Google didn't manage to include a spell-check in this "improved" blog composition thingy!
