Back to normal...whatever that is!

Sew Happy!!!!!
We have the electric power back so all is well in my world.
Mind you, I didn't mind being without power but with the wedding a few days away and the family all coming in to town starting tomorrow...it is best to have electricity!

I did sew this little quilt on Saturday night.  It is from a challenge on the small quilt forum I belong to.  Pulled a few of my Civil War reproduction fabrics from the stash for this.
I started cutting the fabrics around 9pm Saturday and it was pieced, quilted and had the binding sewn to the front by 11:30pm.  It sure went together fast.
After we lost power on Sunday I sat by the front door and hand stitched the binding to the back.
It is really cute and only 10"x11"!
Anyway, I sewed the bindings on a few smaller pieces the past few days and now...
THE POWER IS BACK ON!
Yippee!!! I am so relieved!!!

Happy Sewing all!
Colleen

Your little quilt turned out wonderful!
Great news that your power is back on - that Irene was just awful!

Glad to hear that you're all okay. We were watching Irene on the news and praying for all of those in her path. Your little quilt is cute!
