Bordered squares

I spent most of the weekend writing my sermon and then delivering it twice. Sunday afternoon the tenors of the Grand Rapids Womens' Chorus had a sectional practice and it was all I could do to stay awake until I could get home and take a NAP. So no sewing to remark on.

Today I needed to just GET SOMETHING DONE. So I grabbed some purple 2.5" strips and made these bordered squares. I was thinking it would be a quick Neo-natal quilt, but the result was a little too dark. Pawing through more purple fabric I found these leftover printed border flowers, already cut. Amazingly there was enough for FOUR borders.
So here it is, ready to layer and quilt. I need to stop with the Neo-natal quilt tops and start doing some quilting!

Charlie is away on a one night retreat, so I'm home alone. I seem to always stay up too late in this circumstance.


Exercise today: 50 minutes of Strength and Stretch

Quiet day
Good GRWC rehearsal
ice cream!
