Taking it easy

I have to admit, I'm taking a breather.  I did do a larger sized speed strip quilt, but decided to cut it down and border it.  so, I'm getting 4 little quilts out of the one.  All the prints were novelty prints, so it only makes sense for them to be baby quilts.

I have a fun quilt to quilt for a neighbor.  Hopefully will get it loaded tonight and quilted tomorrow.

DH goes to the airport today and then it will be lonely and we will need something to do.
