It's going to be hard to come off the ripple high, for you AND for me. But hey, guess what? I finished the Pinky quilt top!

Since you last saw it, I finished the sashing and inner border of the white (sprinkled with tiny pink flowers), and added an outer border of the same pink squares that made up the inner blocks.


Do you know what I mean now, Jan? :)


And it's only 6:30, there's still plenty of time tonight for me to at least get the backing set up and maybe even start basting. Wow, talk about Friday night productivity!! (I gotta get it in now, I'll be at work all day Sunday.)

Focus = NOT. Moving in the fan wind = Yes.

And I still have to finish the binding on Mariko's quilt so I've got lots of things to choose from.


We won't talk about how I screwed up a little on the final two borders and may wind up with slightly ruffly corners thanks to my TYPICALLY "aw fuck it!" attitude when I am doing any kind of sewing. I sincerely doubt little baby Lindsey is going to notice that!!

Allrighty, I've got things to do here, peeps, I'm Audi-5000 (Reality Bites, anyone?). Maybe at least one finished quilt by Monday night? Fingers crossed!!!

That is so adorable. I kind of wish I was a baby right now.

And I am totally adopting "jackhat" as my own, btw. Love.

Wow, that is gorgeous! I admit that I have the same attitude when it comes to finishing and I always regret it if I blow a perfectly good project. I hope you can finish it this weekend!

Go! Go! Go! (Those are my words of encouragement. I know that you will be so inspired by them.)

Lovely! Can't wait to see the finished product.

It's the tiny things that the maker sees as an error that show it was made by a person, not a machine or a robot or a political dissident in China now forced into slave labor... And no one is going to kill us for a mis-stitched corner, either. I LOVE the quilt and hope someone I know has a baby girl soon so I can copy.
