Stash Project and a New Baby

I did it! I started making my blocks the day Judy at Patchwork Times posted the instructions for this Stash Project. And I finished my top today! I'm not loving this picture but it's the best of what I took.
She posted the finishing instructions on Friday. Thursday, I had my blocks all set the way I wanted them and sewed them into rows. I didn't sew the rows together because I wanted to know how Judy did her setting triangles---just like I do--so I waited for her instructions. Friday morning I started working and wanted to get the top finished. But when Crystal called, I went in to town and babysat Elliot and Clella so she could have some alone time to run errands. I had the first 2 borders on and would finish it in the morning.

I knew I had all day Saturday to myself. Hubby had Gun Safety Class all day and then he was coming home to shower, change and head into town for the Friends of the NRA Banquet. Big day for the big guy!! I was going to sew all day long.
Then at 7:30 am, my phone rang. It was the baby's coming call. I headed into town to help out with the other kids and forgot all about sewing. I went to baseball practice and then brought Taylor and Ashton home with me while we waited and waited. By bedtime, the call hadn't come yet so they spent the night.
We now have a brand new family member.....Jaelynn Renee joined our family last night around 11:00. I haven't met her yet because I am waiting to have her without all the hospital visitors. I am a shameless baby hog. I want her all to myself! I took Taylor and Ashton into town this morning and came home to work on my top.
Now I am going to work on my bear paws blocks. I hope this isn't a long babble post......I think I need a nap!

Congratulations on being a Grandma again......someday a long time from now I'll be a Grandma too. Your quilt looks very nice. Good luck on having Judy pull your name from the hat.....I'm glad to see there are others in the US that are friends of the NRA....I hope we aren't a dying breed.

I like the bright colors in your quilt. Congrats on the new member of your family. I have another grandson coming in May. That will make 11 grandsons for us. I love them all and I try not to be a baby hog...but I do love to hold those newbies!
