One Short Week

Folks, may I have your attention for a moment? One week from today, all the stress will be over. All the preparation will be done. But getting to that point? Holy moley, it's going to be nuts! I have a lot to still finish. Am I alone in this? I doubt it. So instead of doing a post on all the things I have yet to do, I thought I would post about the things I finished last week.

First up is this adorable baby quilt, made from Ruby. It's also a Thimble Blossoms pattern called Wild Thing. It was my last customer order of the season.

 For the back I used some Nicey Jane. I love this stuff.
 Then, my friend Lauren and I decided to make a quilt for our blogless friend. It was made from leftover blocks from a quilt found here.
We delivered it this week, so she would have a chance to enjoy it. I think she liked it.
 Lauren is a genius, and turned the two leftover blocks into pillows. Look how happy Colleen looks:
Proving yet again that handmade is well worth the stress.
