The hum you hear in the background is my sewing machine working overtime. I thought when I stopped working that I was done with deadlines, but oh no.

One of the women that takes care of my mother is gone and another caregiver is with her. This caregiver's daughter has just had a little girl and I wanted to make the baby a quilt. I want to finish it before she leaves and we go to the beach for the big family beach week. Next week is the big week at the beach with lots of cousins and fun. I had a hard time deciding what to do.

This is a pattern that a friend of my aunt uses with light and dark batiks. It is sixteen patches and half square triangles. I don't know how crazy I am about the blue. It is a little overwhelming but I don't have time to find anything else. The pinks are some Jan Mullen prints that I bought off ebay last year.

I am going to use this print for the back and probably just quilt along the seam lines. I might do a yellow binding. I can't decide yet.

Oh well back to work, only a couple of days left.

The baby quilt looks great! I like the blue - it looks tropical to me! And what a sweet thing for you to do!
