last minute

What do you do when a friend calls to say
her little boy's second birthday is tomorrow.
Her little boy has Cerebral Palsy
and you KNOW you have some printed blocks
from a cloth book project that
would make a great quilt gift for him??!!!

Check.
Sew your brains out.

Quilt sparingly.

Make sure you have plenty of
orange backing in your stash.
Check.

That stash

does come in handy!!!!
