I got Rach's jellyroll race quilt quilted yesterday and off the frame... Sent her these pics and asked about binding... Waiting for her reply... I thought it looked great! She did a wonderful job piecing it, and I love the colors ...
Front and back... Simple meander....love how it looks...

Its 8:32pm and 29 degrees. It never got even into the 40's today... Little Bit and Canela both helped me sewing tiny half square triangles for the Roll Roll Cotton Boll quilt. I got over 150 put together today.
They are 2" squares finishing at 1-1/2"! To me, that's very tiny! Just think, I only need a total of
600 of them! Yikes!
I got the last Sizzix die I ordered in the mail today... Now, I have the 2-1/2" half square triangle die, 2-1/2" square die, the 2-1/2" strip die, a box die, the flower die that came with the machine, and the mixed small circles die. A great start for Bonnie Hunter's new mystery coming up the day after Thanksgiving... Once she gives out the first clue, I'll know better what other dies I need to pick up next.

Our daughter, Rachel, and her two children, Ben and Cara, came to visit over the weekend, then we all drove on Monday to San Antonio and watched our son, Sam and his high school band march for state marching contest at the Alamo Dome... Needless to say, I'm pooped! But, while she was here, Rachel quilted one of the 3 quilt tops she had brought to be finished, and I got it bound before she had to leave for home on Monday. I think she said the pattern was called San Francisco Windows. I thought it turned out beautiful!
