Sewing front

On the sewing front, I got the 2nd Jelly Roll Race quilt top ready, sewn the 1st top sandwich, cut out the binding for it and am ready to sew it on. I do have the backing and batting ready for the 2nd top, just need to put it together.

I am almost done cutting all the pieces for Jamie's quilt. I still need alittle bit more interfacing for the T-Shirts and I think I need one more BDU square...have to lay out the pieces and see which it was I needed. Then once I finish the quilts for Ashlee's teachers, I can finally start the BIG quilt for Jamie. Thankfully he has decided he doesn't want binding so I won't have to worry about that, phew! But we have to figure out what type of backing he wants. I think he is wanting flannel or fleece, but he hasn't decided yet.

Other news: I got a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet! Love it! We also got a Wi-Fi thingy from AT&T so I can use it while we travel. We are planning on driving out to Reno next month. I am not making a 100% decision until my 6 week check up Tuesday. I am feeling great, with very little soreness, just get swollen after a long day. So I think I will be fine to make the long trip. I hope to do some fabric shopping while he is in the conference. ;) After the conference, we are going to take our time coming back so I can see the country, never been past Missouri. :( Ashlee will be in West TN the first week we are gone since it is her spring break and Mom will bring her back and stay with her the next week; we should be home by that Wednesday. I am excited and nervous...Excited since I know it will be fun to spend time with Jamie and see the sights but nervous to leave Ashlee for that long. Will she remember me? Will she miss me? Yes I have those doubts. Anywho....

Break time is over and I need to get to ironing so I can sew the binding on, hopefully today.
UPDATE: Finished the first quilt.
Front: Ashlee hit it about the time I took the picture so sorry...
