Good Help is Hard to Find

Now that school and baseball and football and cheerleading, etc. are back in full swing I have lost all of my quilt helper holding uppers, so I have to resort to making do for the camera.
This quilt is for my sister and I really want to get it off in the mail to her, so I am posting the best pictures I can get. This is made from some Robyn Pandolph fabric from about 6 or 7 years ago. This was a UFO for a very long time. I started it as all stars, but I quickly grew bored with that so kind of made it a hodge podge. I like how it turned out and think that my sister will too.
I am still trying to finish up some UFOs. I am waiting for some batting to be delivered and then I am finally going to quilt the two Orange Crush quilts I made. I decided not to do Bonnie's latest mystery called Old Tobacco Roads right now since I still have 2 OCs in progress. It looks like it might be fun to do later though.
I am still working on the Patches and Pinwheels and almost have it ready for borders. I am loving how this one is turning out.
It is time to start giving some thought to the Secret Santa exchange. I have some ideas, but need to do a detailed search of the recipients blog for some clues as to what is liked. It will be fun!
We had a busy weekend but did manage to barbeque with my aunt, uncle and cousin on Monday. My aunt made this yummy black forest cake. I forgot to take a picture before she cut it but the inside looks pretty too. It tastes just as good as it looks.
Happy quilting,

You should be proud of your photographic skills. Not bad even without the elves! ;)

Boy do I EVER LOVE THIS QUILT! Your sister is going to forever treasure being wrapped in the essence of you! Does she have others or is this the first you've made her?
