The girls celebrated my birthday by making me a homemade birthday cake complete with a fondant quilt. Notice the spool of thread on top and row of buttons around the bottom edge? They did that all by themselves. The kitchen may never recover, but they had a great time doing it.
My gift was a day in the sewing room which I used to make the rest of the Goose blocks for my next quilt. Sashings are next. The pattern, from Bonnie Hunter's Scraps and Shirttails II calls for 3.5 inch sets of the same units used to make the nine patches along with pinwheels as cornerstones. I'm not sure about the cornerstones, but I'll get started on the sashings tomorrow after work. We are required to go in for one day of post planing. Even though I have finished everything on my list, I'll go do some tidying and such to avoid having to use a day of sick leave.
