First, the sailboats. I didn't have enough fabric to cut both the top/bottom and both sides borders. Darn that directional fabric. I had to come up with a work around. So each border will have some pinwheels in them. I waited until Sharon came to double check my math. Yesterday I got all the borders cut and the side borders are ready to sew on. That will happen this week sometime. Rats, I just noticed I didn't align the pinwheels. I think it looks better with the red blade going top to bottom so I guess I'll do a little ripping out and change the pinwheel on the left. Sigh.
My goals all got met this week. Of course, there weren't many on the list as Sharon and her hubby were down this weekend and I spent time trying to finish a quilt on Ruthie and get ready for the guild meeting on Saturday.

I'll leave you with a picture of Natalie wearing the shirt I made her for Easter. The kids and grands stopped at our house on the way to North Carolina for the weekend. Jenny made the shorts which fit really well. Unlike the shorts I made that didn't fit well at all! Oh well. It helps to have the person close by to fit the clothing to! That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!
