Back of the quilt
I did some simple machine quilting - stitch in (or near) the ditch.

Green is Cherish's favorite color.
Green pinwheels and white-on-white background will be scrappier than shown.

Last night I finished the wedding wallhanging. I delivered it to co-worker and mother-of-the-bride Gayle S. this morning. She loved it. The bride will arrive from out of town next week. I hope she likes the quilt, too.

Coming up are three quilts in quick succession. The most urgent is for retiring co-worker Fred A., who is a San Francisco Giants fan. I ordered a Giants logo from Ebay a few days ago, but the package may not arrive until Monday. I was hoping to have the logo to match orange colors, but I may have to go ahead and buy fabric without the logo in hand. The oranges may not match, but Fred will love the quilt, anyway.

Also in line is a quilt for co-worker Cherish V. Her last day of work is tomorrow, which sneaked up on me. However, I told Cherish I was making her a quilt and we are Facebook friends so we'll be able to stay in touch. I will get her quilt finished quickly and deliver it within the next couple of weeks before she moves out of the area.

As if I didn't have enough to do, I'm planning a Fourth of July quilt, which I would love to complete before that holiday.

I'm going to be a busy little quilter!
