The race is on

I thought I would be able to finish the little quilt I made for my daughter before she steps off the plane this evening. But it doesn't look like I'm going to make it.

I've been working on it pretty steady, and even quilted very late into the night. But the binding is still to be finished, and sewn down. So I may just have to give it to her and finish up the hand sewing tomorrow.

No real pattern. I combined two patterns and guessed at all the measurements.

This one is my favorite block -

My daughter is such a beautiful sweet snowflake :-)

I hope she likes it.

And be sure to visit Madame Samm and Amy's Creative Side as they kick off the Beam N Read Blog Hop.
You can sign up with each of the 10 bloggers this week for an opportunity to win one of these amazing lights. And come back tomorrow. Micki of Irish Muses and I will be doing our review.

Have a great day. And Happy Quilting!
