my blue table runner is done and McCalls quilt top is done too

I finished the binding the blue table runner today, so it's all done, except a label, I want to wait to see if I'll keep it or give it away
and I finished sewing the top for McCall's quilt #1.
It's been a hoot to make!

this is the only preview I will show :-)

Now I need to think about how to quilt it
just wait and see.... it should be in the McCall's quick quilts at the end of the year.

Maybe I'll start the Dr Seuss quilt tomorrow, we'll see....

AND tomorrow I have a Dr's appt to find out if we're having a boy or a girl..... any guesses? 

I DID receive another house block back from the wonky block swap, I will show pics later.

Lovely work, the blue is beautiful. I am guessing for a boy, are you going to tell me if I am right ;)

Your table runner is just beautiful. Super cute sneak peek. Can't wait to see more of that one.

I think you're having a girl. Seems everyone I've heard so far this year are all having girls or have had.
