It was a bit hard seeing that 1/4" seam with just one good eyeball! But she did finish this top:
I stuck to one big scrap quilt. Although I kept giving myself deadlines as to how long I was going to work on it. I was encouraged to keep at it until it was a completed top. When I started Thursday night I only had the center 16 patches and pinwheels together. Most of the other units were made or at least cut out but it still took until Saturday afternoon to have the whole quilt top done. And, WOW, it really looks good. I must admit that I didn't work really hard (or actually at all) on getting the triangle border to match right. I can just hear future quilt historians say, "Isn't it charming. The quilt maker must have just given up and chopped up those triangles so they fit whichever way they would." Hopefully they will be that nice.
Next up was making a few blocks for various activities. Here are two blocks for baby quilts for the guild. We got enough blocks to make 3 baby quilts. Look for pictures of some of the quilt tops we did we these blocks.
I made a block for Faithful Circle's opportunity block for October. I will be visiting there tomorrow night as I'm up helping Jenny and Brian with Sophia and Natalie.
