Heart Quilt√

It has been a very busy week up until Friday afternoon when I flaked out napping and reading! 

First, I got Jenny's quilt for Pulse quilted -- in one day.  I tend to take a couple of days for most quilts bigger than baby size.  But I was focused so I finished it up Tuesday night.  A lot of Jenny's quilting buddies sent her hearts to incorporate into the quilt.  Some hearts were on the front, others on the back.  I chose a very loose pattern called Mermaid Fingers to quilt.  This is my go to pattern for a fast, easy to do design.  I probably should have tightened it up a bit but it definitely did not distract from the great hearts. (Hum, I'm pretty sure the two I made her did not make it in the quilt. Sigh.  They probably were both grayed fabrics instead of bright.) 
You can see the quilting a bit in this closeup taken before I took it off the frame. 

We picked up the Grands on Wednesday evening.  Rush hour around the DC/Northern Virginia area is never fun.  We met for dinner and then took the girls home with us.  I won't go into details but the first 12 hours were not fun but after that we had a great time.  Our pool time Thursday was great fun except I forgot to put sun screen on me even though I did both girls.  Sigh.  I still have a slight burn.  Hopefully I won't have peeling skin later! 

I've filled the shelves with fabrics, UFOS, scraps.Next up -- Books!

I'm linking up with Can I have a Whoop, Whoop? That's it for me today.  

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
