I did it!

Three weeks from purchasing the fabric to washing the final quilt.

It is in the dryer as I type. And a week early I might add (the shower is next Sunday).

I always wash and dry a quilt before I give it away. I also let the recipient know how to care for it and since this is a baby quilt I hope it will be used and washed often.

I think I might even ask for this one back in March to enter it in our quilt show.

Lots of drama in our area over the weekend. A severe storm hit late Friday night and caused a whole bunch of wind damage and power outages. I have to admit that my husband and I slept through the whole thing. We are usually the first to lose power but this time blessedly we didn't. I ran out Saturday to get my hair cut then quickly back home and otherwise I stayed inside the whole weekend. I was worried about the traffic lights being out when I came to work this morning but they were fine on my route. My heart goes out to those without power. The power companies are saying that they might not get everyone back on until Friday.

Happy sewing,
