I was fortunate to find a backing fabric with plus signs on it - and it's grey and blue just like the quilt front!
I'm still working on adding borders to my 3 versions of the New Year's day mystery quilts, but I'm hoping that you'll see them finished soon.
Of course, almost every quilter knows a version of the quilter's "Squirrel" - being committed to finishing a project before starting anything new, and all of a sudden, there's a new project that I JUST HAVE TO DO!!! This past week has been a great example of that! I spotted a blog post on Sunday about a one-woman charity that creates dolls for kids that are born "different" - they may be missing a limb, or have facial abnormalities or big birthmarks - and Amy Jandrisevits creates "A Doll Like Me" for these kids. Of course these dolls need quilts, right? There's a doll quilt drive on 'til the end of the month, and I've managed to make 6 "tops". I should be able to get them quilted on Monday and into the mail on Tuesday. This is one of the tops:
Oh, there's also been some knitting going on too - I'm knitting a sweater for my nephew's 2 year-old son, and another one for the baby that's due next month - word has it that it's a girl! I'm using the Crazyheart pattern designed by Tanis Lavallee for the "Heart on My Sleeve" project. I'm skipping the stripes in the body and sleeves, but the bright triangles will be there!
