Deadlines, Deadlines!!!

There have been many, many, many and may I say many Graduation quilts, and quilts for school auction binding jobs keeping me plenty busy, but I am happy to report all deadlines have been met!!!!!036
One of the quilts up for auction at a school was entitled love letters.  Each student wrote a special note to their parents.....35 love letters in all.

All this means no sewing has happened here, but my goal for next week is to get my pumpkin quilt done023.  I figure 3 rows a night should do the trick!!!
Something in blogland has caught my eye though.  Carol and Kelly are hosting this wonderful Quilt AlongSmall Button
……….such a sweet quilt (just click their links above to have a peek) and look at this cute button!!  There are two sizes . Carol has made a large one using a layer cake, and the smaller version made by Kelly calls for charm squares.  Sew Cherry has been calling my name and that’s just what Kelly made her’s out of.  I still have some charm packs of Friends and Flowers that I have been hoarding, so I probably will be using that.

The weekend has been a good one.  The dots are sleeping over, tucked in bed right now after a fun day of playing and visiting their other grandma’s for a swim in the Jacuzzi.  Guess I better get myself settled in for the night to be ready to play first thing!!!  Happy Sunday everyone.

What a neat idea, having the kids write love letters - bet that one goes for a pretty penny! I saw the QA, I'm not joining in but I'm going to love watching everyone else!

Enjoy the Dots - yep, you'd best be up early!

What a cute pumpkin quilt. I'm going to do the quilt along too, I have some Sew Cherry fabric so I'm going to do mine just like Kelly's. I was lucky enough to get two charm packs of Sew Cherry before FQS sold out of them. Have fun visiting with the "dots".

Oh Wow! How could one resist buying a quilt that had a love letter from their kid? What a great idea!
