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!

Uh oh, has Google been messing around with blogspot again? I wish folks would just leave well enough alone sometimes.

Boy, you knocked out this quilt in a hurry! I may have to have a go at this formula. Heaven knows I have enough novelty prints! I could probably do at least one featuring only dogs and another featuring cats. I could probably do at least two out of my Halloween prints!

Yeah google bloggers have been having lots of trouble.
I can't get the comments to go to my inbox at all since November.
I like to see them come in email form.
Haiti...so sad. I was thinking of making some strippie quilts for when the relief plan for rebuilding is in effect. New houses, new blankets...
