only 9 left

I spent  about 4 hours yesterday sewing. I did get distracted and had to do other things. I will have an appointment  to keep with my Mother this morning. Tomorrow is busy and Sunday is the baby shower. I guess when I get a few minutes I will have to sew a few seams here and there.  

Just outline stitching, but effective for a utility quilt. These are some HST's my Mother had started for another top and she didn't want to work on it. I finally added a lot more to make this top. Some are pretty ugly fabrics, but in the overall pictures and top it is attractive. Don't let the uglies get to you. 

As you can see the seams are all contained so it should hold up well in washing and using it hard in a family room. Can't wait to wash it and see how it shrinks to more of an aged look. Maybe in the next few days I can then get to the borders and it will be closer to a finish. Chris
