Quilt for Kids

I didn't realize it had been so many days since I last posted, but what the heck...
I've been really pushing to get all the blocks done for my Dear Jane quilt.  I have 28 left to do, and I'm almost ready to set a deadline to have them done.  Of course, that just means that I'll have to start on the triangles.  I finally got my ruler for them. Now I just have to screw up my courage to attempt one.

This was the view out over our back yard this afternoon.  I know you can't tell it, but the flakes were big and fluffy, and though I'm sick to death of winter, it really was beautiful.  When is this just going to go away and let us get on to spring?

I finally got the batting and finished putting my 'Quilt for Kids' put together and quilted today.  I'm finishing the binding tonight while we watch still more Olympics, and will get it washed and ready to mail tomorrow.  I've checked my stash, and I don't have anything that would make a colorful kid quilt, so I'm going to buy some to make a girlie quilt to send them.  If you haven't seen this project yet, go here to check it out.  Sorry the picture is fuzzy and the colors so washed out.  It is such a colorful little quilt!
