One of the teachers at school just had a baby boy. I was trying to get this quilt finished for her in time for her shower a few weeks ago, but I ended up being home several days the week of the party. So I decided to give myself until this past Friday, her last day before maternity leave, to finish it and give it to her. Then she went into labor and had the baby on Monday night. So now, I’m just trying to finish it and mail it to her.

And this quilt has been a surprising challenge. I had a small charm pack of David Walker’s Boys Will Be Boys fabric all ready for this project. But it wasn’t enough for the quilt, so I mixed in some of my Pure by Sweetwater for Moda. This is where I am so far:

But it’s taking a long time to make all the blocks, so I still have 10 blocks to make to get to the size I want for this top. I’m out of Boys Will Be Boys, so it’s Pure and some other fun things from stash. Hopefully I’ll finish the top this week.
