A crazy morning and a quilt top...

Sunday is almost over and I am glad.  I usually post on Sunday mornings but things didn't go so well this morning.  Around 4:30am I was startled by a loud boom.  Jumped out of bed, heard people screaming to call the fire dept, and police.
It seems a very large tree fell two doors down from my house and crushed 2 parked cars and hit a house and yes there was fire but thankfully no one was hurt.  Of course it took down the power lines with it!  So, no electric, no blogging, and worse of all no sewing and it was HOT...HOT...HOT!
I was up until 1:00am sewing a cute little backpack for my great nephew's first birthday which was today.  My intention was to get up early (but not at 4:30am) and make a matching crayon roll...never happened.  I also forgot to take a photo of the backpack.
Electricity came back around 7pm and all is well!

My friend Sheryl posted a photo of her glorious Shadow Box Quilt and so I thought I had better post mine.  The class was great and all the ladies had such wonderful fabrics.
This is going to be a gift for a special person!
The border is a very dark green/black print.  I had a lot of fun making this and Alice is a great teacher.
You can see Sheryl's quilt on her blog; http://downtoearthliving.blogspot.com//

Happy Stitching!

I love your quilt and am glad everyone is alright even if you didn't get much sleep.
