Early To Bed, Early To Rise...

...Without fuzzies in my eyes!!! I know I am a morning person, I don't normally go back to bed because when I wake up, I have days like yesterday. Staying up is my normal and I think I need to stick to my normal.

After doing a couple morning chores, I turned today into a sewing/quilting day. This is newest block from Moose on the Porch Quilt Along. Today is the 3rd time I've made this one block. Block 1, I had the steps going the wrong way, took it apart and resewed it. Block 2 didn't measure 12 1/2 x 12 1/2 because someone cut the light blocks the wrong size. I wonder why someone didn't notice this after block 1! This morning someone took out the too small pieces and replaced them with the correct size and now we have block #4. Someone is now happy.

Next on the list was to put the final borders on Grandson Elliot's train quilt. Now that the top is finished, I am going to fold the last load of clothes then make the backing, cut the batting and get to quilting. My goal is to have this quilt finished today!

3rd times the charm....I say that a lot about my sewing. I haven't even thought to measure my completed jellyroll blocks. I just assume they'll be in the general vicinity of 12.5...
Is that real bad?
Elliott's quilt is darling.
