It's Thursday already?!

I can't believe how fast this week has gone. I have been very busy at work and the evenings go by in a flash. I am working on prepping projects for this weekend. I don't plan on going any where except a quick trip to the grocery Saturday morning. After I spent 20 minutes looking for this quilt top, I managed to get it ready for pin basting this morning. I was up at 5 am - not on purpose - I just could not go back to sleep. This quilt is for a woman I work with that is due in November, but I want to get it to her before the shower.

I finished pin basting the second pink whirly gig quilt and I pinned it up on the design wall with the other three quilts that are also pin basted. You can see that I put a row of fabric down the back with scraps of the pink just to add a little somethin' somethin'.

I have this pile of fabric waiting to be ironed which I plan on doing tonight along with winding bobbins, pin basting the quilt on the table, and cutting out binding for all five of these quilts. This weekend will be nothing but machine quilting.

I love the African fabrics quilt. It makes me want to pull mine back out again.
