A quilt for Leah...

I am in the middle of a moment of madness.....a few months back I promised a quilt for a fund raising event...the smart thing would have been to start on it then hey??!! Did I??!! hhhmmmm NOPE! So of course the deadline is closing and now it MUST be done...I spent an interesting and exhusting 4 days at the Quilt & Craft fair so was in the perfect spot to find inspiration! I purchased a "Giddy" by Sandy Gervais for Moda Layer Cake, and have devised a simple but effective design. I got it cut this morning and have started piecing when I returned from my afternoon engagement. Here is how it is looking at the moment....and here is one block up close


I hope to get a good portion of it together this evening....but I MUST have an early night. SO it is an oven dinner tonight...ie turn the oven on, open a packet and heat it up...LOL Kids are fine with that and husband is out working so.....away we go......

Looks great, Is it going to have borders ? or just as is ? A friend made a quilt from a Jelly roll Of Giddy very pretty.

Mai the blocks will be 18" finished... I think I will need a border Pam just to grow it a bit....
