What a difference ....

A year makes. Last year around this time I was just finishing up my first guild quilt show. The guild had asked everyone to make something that could be sold in the boutique. I started making a baby change pad based on a pattern by Eleanor Burns. Well, I was so worried about it being perfect, that it became less perfect. It was my first year with the guild and I did not know how well my quilting would look against anyone else's. I ended up not finishing the project. Fast forward to this year. Tonight is my guild's dinner and they have asked us to go green. We are to bring our own place mat as well as dishes. Well I took out the old change pad and pared it down to a place mat size. I was up at 6:00 this morning quilting it. I am not going to get a chance to bind it before the meeting, but I don't care. I am taking it anyhow.

PS. There is a fabulous giveaway over at The Fabric Shopper. You really need to check it out. There is also a great giveaway at at LanieJane.
