One Sunday not long ago, I was informed that we (the ladies of our church) would be giving an expectant mom in our congregation a baby shower.
In a week.
For a quilter, unless you just happen to have gift quilts in reserve, this is cause for panic. And panic is what I did. I don't exactly have the kind of schedule where I can drop everything and focus on a quilt. My children still need to be reared, discipled, homeschooled, etc. Folks around here still expect to eat from time to time. We still have weekly obligations.
But I was determined to give a gift of a quilt. So, on Friday, two days before it needed to be completed, I started cutting it out. I finished it Saturday. It obviously needed to be a simple design. But I got it done. And I think it's cute. :)
