Here's where I am this weekend...

I got most of the quilt pinned last night but dinner was getting late and my back was feeling the strain of all the standing. I took this picture before I finished pinning. Now, Buckeye Queen is all pinned and in a few minutes I'm going to start quilting. Hopefully it will only take a few hours to do a nice overall meandering.

My husband got up this morning and was at the Red Cross at 6:30 am for his platelet donation. Normally they give out t-shirts but this morning he got the neatest kitchen apron. I thought it was so clever that you would appreciate seeing a picture.

Can you read what it says?

I love the use of the Pi symbol! I don't love pumpkin pie -- but I can imagine doing one of these to show a type of pie you do love!

This is Wendy from the American Red Cross. Please thank your husband for donating!

Glad you like the apron.

Also, great quilting. I have always wanted to try but it seems like too big a hill to climb without a sewing machine.

Very nice quilt - now it's making me think of what other 4 patch style blocks would look interesting added in a snowball fashion to the corner of a large square. :)
