Caitlin's Quilt and Hanah's Skirt

I was hoping show you a completely finished project quilting and all... but my sister, a long arm quilter, was going to sneak it in for me, unfortunately she had appendicitis and had surgery on Tuesday. She is home and doing well hoping to get up to her machine sometime today but I don't think Caitlin's quilt will be quilted by the July's deadline. So here is the finished top minus the mitered border. I didn't have enough material and had to add corner squares. I'm pleased with the result. yes it is a bit big for a baby quilt but it will grow with her.

I haven't given up on mitered borders and will try it on a future quilt.

I made my great- niece, Hannah, a little skirt for her birthday. She is really loves horses and has been taking horse back riding lessons. On Saturday we took a ride to Greenfield to the Textile Company and picked up dome Horse fabric. I made her a skirt using Indyo Junction's Little Charmers pattern.

Today I'm going to make the bag from the Tiny seamstress Throwdown Bag 2009. It needs to be finished by August third. I still need to start the Good Ol' Summer Time Swap. I have a few ideas dancing around in my head. There's a lot to do before my class starts next week.Yikes! I know I won't have much time for any thing else because its a full graduate course jammed into two weeks.
What was I thinking?

Your quilt is LOVELY! I really like the border squares -- and the fabric is gorgeous! Okay, and that skirt is just TOO CUTE! Way to get those projects finished. Keep up the good work!

Thanks Kelly! This challge has provided me with impetus I need to get things done. There's something about verbalizing a goal and putting it in writing for all the world to see that gets one to actually do what you say your going do.
