Earthquakes, hurricanes, the start of school and a finished quilt top ...oh my!

It has been an interesting week here in Virginia. An earthquake, a hurricane and the start of school. With all the tizzy surrounding the first two the last one tugged at my heart strings an awful lot. My sweet baby girl started middle school. Big step for my little girl.

My heart goes out to all the people that had damage to their property from both of the natural disasters and for the loss of life in the hurricane. I hope my friends in the northeast will continue to take cover and stay safe!!!!!!!

Since I was housebound yesterday, I was able to get some work completed on the ball quilt for the 100 Quilts For Kids. If you have not checked it out please do, it is a great cause!!!!!



Yesterday I was able to complete my color blocks


Do the applique and placement


And finish the quilt top!!!!


 I think I will add sashing and start the quilting today :o)





I hope that everyone stays safe!!!!!

OH MY GOSH!!! That is WAY cuter than I imagined (not that I didn't imagine it would be cute, heh).

I thought it was going to be the same sized dots, but the different sizes in combination with the solids is AWESOME! I think it's cool that you alternated colors on the background as well.

Wow, I just love it...I'm sure it will be just a tiny bit hard to give it away :-)
