I'm going to stay home!

Finally, I've got a stretch of days where I don't have to leave the house. I can go somewhere if I decide I want to, but there's no place I have to be. After weeks of running here there and everywhere, staying home sounds like the best idea ever.

So I'm planning another baby quilt binge - ten quilts in ten days. The last time I tried, my sewing machine died around day five or six. But I still wound up with six completed quilts and four new tops. This time, I don't have a head start, just the mouse quilt top and the blocks for Blue Sheet Quilt #1.

Saturday was day one. I got the blocks for Blue Sheet Quilt #1 assembled and cut the blue pieces I'll need for Blue Sheet Quilt #3. It looks like there's enough left for that fourth quilt I was hoping for.

And here's Blue Sheet Quilt #2 (Also known as Baby Quilt Binge #1) --

I made the blocks and assembled them Saturday afternoon, then got it quilted and bound before bed.

The applique mouse is quilted and waiting to be bound. I love the way the quilting makes the mouse and cheese stand out.
