Pillow Fight

Today I finished quilting the first of two quilts for my nephew's mother-in-law. In reality, the quilts will both be going to my nephew for his first born baby due later this year. It was the first ever polyester batting quilt that I've longarmed. Not my first choice for batting as I am a cotton kind of girl, but this is what I was given and it turned out nicely.

In addition, I took out all of the hand basting on the second quilt so that I could load it onto the longarm. Doggie and I curled up on the couch and made this our afternoon project. Tomorrow I will start the quilting process. I'm hoping that both quilts will be done by next weekend so that they can make the trip back to Kansas with my family.

Yes, another family running event will take place on July 4. The same crew that ran OKC will be running a 5k with me on July 4. Yesterday I signed up my 11 year old niece so I will be running with her. I'll be signing up for the inaugural Dynamo run a couple of weeks later so I can record my July time. Who knows, though, maybe A. is going to kick me some butt in the upcoming run!

My second project of the day was to finish the three UT pillowcases for a fellow co-worker. Her son (who's 10) is a Longhorn fan through and through. I hope these cheer up his newly redecorated room.
