kitten blankets and Girls State quilt

Ok, finally some pictures to share. I'm still not feeling perfect, but maybe 10% better so it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself and get busy. I stayed home from work today and slept most of the morning away. When I woke up, I could breathe again and that meant I could quilt again!

Here are the three kitten blankets I got done over the weekend, two quilts and one crochet blanket.

And this is the quilt for the Girls State Auction this Saturday. I still need to get the binding on, but I have that cut and ready so sew, at least. I should be able to finish this one by Saturday. If you click on the picture and make it bigger, you can see that I wrote things in the white parts, America the Beautiful and such. I didn't realize how hard it was to write with stitching on a quilt. Some of the cursive letters are a little strange, because when you write, you pick up your pencil, but you can't just pick up the sewing machine and put it down again, so I had to emprovise a little. I hope you can read all of the words.
