My mom called this afternoon, not just to say "hi" or even to say she missed me. No - she called to ask if I have any more girlie quilts sitting around that she could buy off of me. You all remember when she did this to me right before Christmas. She needs another baby quilt at the last minute - I tried to tell her she was setting a dangerous precedent. Everyone will be expecting a baby quilt from her - even the strangers she sees at Walmart! I, of course, do happen to have a girlie quilt sitting at my house, already quilted. I tried to tell her she was ruining my chances of winning that new sewing machine but she said if I did this good deed for her maybe the sewing machine gods would be on my side when the drawing happens in a few weeks. She then asks if the quilt is already bound! The nerve of some people!!!! So I, being the wonderfully giving daughter that I am, trim the quilt, make her some binding, and get it in the mail to her this afternoon. On a Sunday. Really, I should win the daughter of the year award. Really!
I also sent her a square of muslin and one of my pigma pens so she can make a label. Am I thoughtful or what?
The back is pieced out of the leftovers from the front and from the other pink quilt. There was enough of the blue leftover after I trimmed the quilt to make the binding. I used up every last little bit of those two blue fabrics.
This weekend I also quilted the other nine patch quilt and got the rail fence one loaded onto the machine. I am hoping to quilt it tomorrow. This may be the last of the Project Linus quilts since the contest ends on February 18th. I don't know if I will have time to get any more done. I also need to get the pink baby quilt bound before the shower next Saturday.
Hope everyone had a great weekend! DD was amused when we told her that the team in blue in the the Superbowl was from Seattle. She was born in Seattle - during our 20 months of living there. DS then asked where the other team was from, hoping that maybe they would be from Indiana, where he was born! But alas, no such luck!
