AJ's MRI and Quilting

Got the results of AJ's MRI today -- normal. I am now convinced both he and Will had a case of West Nile Virus. According to the website -- his symptoms match those of the West Nile Virus in children (it is much tougher on those over 50). They both had mosquito bites and both exhibited a rash on their chests and backs that Steph thought was due to some new soap she had tried -- never connecting it to the headache and vomiting of AJ, or Will's fussiness (because he is also teething). Anyway -- both boys are doing fine now and Steph has a call in to her pediatrician to discuss this possibility.

I managed to pin this quilt on the machine and quilt it last weekend and today I sat down and stitched the binding on. This was from the first Nickel Quilts book by Pat Speth -- we made this quilt in a workshop conducted by Pat a few years ago (I can not remember exactly when!). Anyway -- it is finished. I used the Al Fresco pantograph on it from Willow Leaf Studios.

And this afternoon I went to a "Quilter's Garage Sale"! And yes, of course I bought some books I don't need and some blocks I can add to my pile of blocks (I really liked them and I hope to make them into a quilt, someday!). I'll take some pictures for future posts!

AJ has been feeling fine since last Tuesday (except for being drunk on anesthesia yesterday!)
I haven't heard from Anne's kids today, so no news is good news on her.
Making quilting plans for next week.

I'm glad the MRI was negative.

The star quilt looks great! I have one of the Nickel Quilt books but not sure if it's the one with this quilt.
