Almost Friday!

I need to spend some time tonight and finish the baby quilt I am working on so I have something for Crazy Mom Quilts Friday Finish.  I only have one more row to add then the borders, then the top will be done. 
Another baby quilt I am working on needs to moved to the top of my list.  I started this when my friend Heidi found out she was having a boy.  The due date is in April, but when I spoke to her last she is more then likely having him in a couple weeks.

I would like to make 3 more Swoon blocks.  Red, orange and green solids with the robot print.  I think 1 block with a border would be just too small. 

Last year I started on a quilt for my sister who had gastric-bypass and lost a ton of weight.  With all her insulation now gone she is cold a lot of the time so I wanted to make her a quilt to have around to just throw on when she is doing homework or watching her favorite show NCIS.

I used FQ's and White and Apricot for the solids from Connecting Threads.  I am echoing quilting with Apricot thread also from Connecting Threads.  Sad to say Apricot is no longer available. 

The quilting is half done then I just need to make the binding from the scraps.  Brenda's b-day is in May, so maybe it will be early this year.

My Curves Class went really well.  Once I knew how to get the curve without puckering, my blocks came together really fast.  I lost my zeal to finish when I realized that Batiks were not my thing.  The BOM I am doing with my LQS is in Batiks, but they are coming together okay.  Maybe the really bright colors from my curves class were the problem.

I hope to post and link up my finish in the morning.
