SWEET GRANDDAUGHTER AND A DONATION QUILT FINISHED

My DIL sent a couple pictures of Abigail that I couldn't resist showing you all.  


What a beautiful day at the beach!  And it's within a 10 minute drive for them.

I finished this donation quilt and took it to my guild meeting last night to be delivered to Children's Hospital.

By the time I finished it, the backing fabric had kind of grown on me.  I still have about 2 yards of it left.

I have been working on putting the blocks together for a king size quilt and the top is almost done!  I just have to sew a few more rows together and then do the border and I will be ready to sandwich it and quilt  it on my new sewing machine.  I hope it will fit.  If it doesn't, I will call my friend to see if I can quilt the middle part on her HQ machine and then I will finish it at home.

We had more rain on Sunday and I think we're supposed to get more during this week.  It's good to have a rainy spring again.

Abigail is such a cutie. And what is this king-size quilt? Have we seen photos or is it top secret?

She is so sweet! I like the little surprise boxes in the quilt, too!

What a precious little girl! Just want to give her a squeeze!
The donation quilt turned out great! (I still haven't quilted anything that large on my new machine.) I will be interested to hear how things go with the quilting of the king-size quilt. And I echo Katie--have we seen this one?
