I feel SO accomplished! 22 hours from making the first fabric cut, the baby quilt is done! Which gives me time to wash it and go to the store tomorrow to grab a few more little gifts to go with it before the baby shower Friday morning. Whew!

I quilted it in a medium meander, all over. Thankfully, it went pretty fast. The back is scrappy too, so I'm happy to say that the entire thing came from my stash! (Including the pieced together batting!)

And for some reason this always happens in my house... What good is a quilt on the floor without a few animals on the quilt, right?

Finally! I got my booty in the sewing room and accomplished things.

I have 2 of 10 swap blocks done- those need to be done and mailed by the 15th or so.

And, I made a quilt top today. I found out around 9 30 last night that there is a baby shower at hubby's office on Friday.... umm OK! So I got to work today, and the top is now complete. The plan is to quilt and bind and wash it tomorrow, and be good to go come Friday morning!

Here is the top- the colors aren't showing up as bright as they are in real life, but I still think it's cute for a little boy!
