I'm almost done with my quilt top!  I have 4 strips of 3 blocks each - ready to sew together to make the quilt top.  ?Here are two of the strips....

And a close-up of a couple of the blocks

My goal is to have it ready to quilt by next weekend....we'll see.  The quilt kit came with a suggested quilting pattern, so I will give it a try.  Nothing too fancy for me yet, but a bit different than my normal "stitch in the ditch" style.  (Which doesn't work too well if all the corners don't match up.)  This quilt is so busy with the fabric patterns that no one will see the few corners that don't match up, I'm sure.  I also know that Steve and Randy will appreciate a handmade gift, even if it isn't perfect.
