Hurry up and wait...

Over the weekend, I finished zig-zagging around all of the letters on the ME "Friends" quilt and got the backing pieced. Now it's set aside til I get the batting and can get it sandwiched and quilted.

So in the mean time.....I just can't sit still! I've got to start another project! Yeah that's me - the one with the most UFO's! Except this one I HAVE to get done asap because it's for a birthday present this Saturday. It's a baby quilt so it should go together quickly.

I've got all the squares done. I followed Allison's (cluck cluck sew) pattern (BTW love her!) where you lay two blocks of fabric on top of each other and then cut all pieces at once then change out the center block to make two blocks, somewhat mirror image of each other. I couldn't remember her dimensions so I just went with the flow and made up my own. I started with 8 inch blocks and cut off 2 inches on each vertical side. Then cut off 2 inches from the top and bottom. This left a 4 inch center block. Switched out the centers and sewed them all back together.

Here is what I ended up with! Pretty darn proud of myself. Tonight I get to lay them all out. I'm sure with the help of a certain someone too!! Might have to wait til that one is down for the night.

These are about the worst photos I've ever taken, but given the time of day (11:15pm) last night, they will have to do. You get the point - right? Tomorrow I will have better pics of them all laid out. I have 30. Main fabric is that cute little Snoopy fabric. This is going to be one luckly little dude! It's for a former co-worker's son's 1st birthday!

On to the layout of the blocks!
