It's done, finished, completed, get the picture. I finally finished the "commission" quilt from *&^$#! And, I will never, never, never, do another quilt for someone who says, "Would you make my mom a quilt with cardinals and birdhouses on it?" Like it's an easy thing to do -- NOT!

I also managed to sammich and pin baste the next quilt to be quilted -- that's about it for quilty things today! Still haven't gotten back to the Labor Day Madness or any or scrappy stuff -- but definitely on my agenda after this next quilt is finished.

It was unbelieveably cold this morning! No frost, but cold enough to have a fire in the fireplace in the kitchen -- first one of the season and from here on out, the fireplace probably won't have a chance to cool down til next spring! I even sat in the kitchen to finish stitching the binding on the quilt this morning! It was heaven! It is supposed to warm up to the 60's this weekend, but there's also a chance of frost tonight! Welcome to the midwest!

Thanks, Dawn! And I am very happy it is done and no longer on my mind! Just need to get it to DD in the next month or so!

It's a beautiful quilt and she will love it. I have heard other people say that they don't like to make commission quilts. Jen
