Yeah, it's basted. I did end up running to walmart. I had to stop by and get batteries anyway. The smoke detector started chirping this week and I had no 9-volt in the house (the one in the sewing room, not a sleeping bedroom, plus there are 3 others on the same floor, so I didn't run out and do it Tuesday at midnight when I got home nor last night after my class).
Now for the photos:
first up - the whole quilt. It is made up of the Critters charm pack my mom gave me for Christmas (plus 4 more squares to have enough)
Up close of the borders. The yellow for the inner border is also the backing. I got a ton of it on clearance awhile back.
The next two are close ups of several of the fabrics in the charm pack. The charm pack had 2 each of 17 different prints, but I didn't like 1 of the prints. That left me with 32 and for the 6x6 I needed 36, so I added 2 additional prints. Can you tell which ones? You'll have to look at the whole quilt to do so :-D
This quilt is being made in honor of Dillon, the little boy I've mentioned before. He's the one who went to China last year for stem cell treatment. A local (to them) organization has chosen him as the recipient this year of the proceeds from their annual car show. They hold a corvettes only car show and also have an auction. This year's event is August 8 from 11 AM to 4 PM. It is in Barto, PA near Bally. If you're in the area, they would love to have you come to the car show. If you can't make it, but would like to do so, the website has directions for you to send in a donation for Dillon.
I'm going to quilt and bind it this weekend so I can get it in the mail on Monday. I'll post a picture after I'm done with it.
