I just went back through my blog and discovered that I pieced this the summer of 2011. I posted about it here and here. As I re-read the old blogs, the irony is that I think I was about to go out to dinner with our friends Kas & Dave the day I was "killing time". They are now pregnant. With twins. About a week ago I found out that they were having girls. The next day we received the invite to the baby shower. That's really not fair. The babies won't be ready for another 7 weeks. I spent most of Saturday quilting like a fiend, but still didn't finish. I took the partially finished quilt and the flimsy, but took them back to finish.
Other baby will get this quilt. Which has an even more interesting connection. It was also made from Shop Hop Charm Squares. From the same shop in Halfway, but 2 years later. Oh, and the reason that I had enough door prizes to make a quilt is because it was from the trip when I took my biker buddies with me. And the babies daddy is a biker. Well, at least he was before twins.
And I might have finished at least one of them if I hadn't stopped to crochet a couple boobie beanies. After all Daddy needs something to look at while the babies are eating.
