MIL Visiting...

I finally got my house cleaned back up. The Christmas mess is gone. I even took my Christmas tree down yesterday.

Today, I made a "4-Patch Flip" I cut it out and got all of the blocks done and sewn together. I ended up with 56 blocks. Now all I have to do is add the borders. I have them cut and I even cut the binding to have ready for quilting.

My MIL and Richard's Grandmother are coming for a visit this evening. I'm not sure what time they will be here so I am trying to wait and add my borders after they leave. I tried to straighten up my sewing area so that it won't look so bad when they are here, but then again, they know that I love to sew so they should expect a mess!

My MIL didn't get to come in for Christmas, so that is what she is doing now. I gave his Grandmother, his Aunt Carol, and my sister thier quilts on Christmas, so Doris will get hers tonight. I also bought her a nice recipe book. She loves recipe books and so does my mom so I think I will go back down and get another one for my mom. Here is the quilt that I will be giving to my MIL tonight. It is called "Butterfly and Roses" the photo in not very plain, I had to scan it so it didn't turn out well.

Hopefully, I will get to post a photo of my new quilt top later tonight....

You get so much done in one day quilting it always amazes me. All I've done so far is think about the yellow brick road I want to make. Love the quilt for your MIL too.
