still plugging away

I am STILL working on that silly teacher quilt. Not sure why it is taking me so long, but might be that it is on point and I always mess up, so I am going back and forth to the design wall to make sure I've got it right. I still had to rip out 2 setting triangles. LOL

I think it is going to be pretty. I even found a backing fabric in my stash. That makes me happy. Hoping I can finish it up in the next day or two. The final 3 rows should go together quickly.
I might have enough fabric left to make a pillow case or maybe a tote bag. Since these are DD's teacher's favorite colors, a tote might be fun.
I also made 2 ocean waves while doing the leader/ender for each seam I sewed. Another one is cut out and ready to use.
I'm cutting off Mom's dress and slacks. She is so short that nothing is short enough on her. So, I will work on them tomorrow at her doctors appointment. I need to get something quilted tomorrow so I can have something to work on at DD's eye appointment.
