here's to a quilting saturday

Here are two of the projects I worked on this last Saturday. Amanda and I decided a bit at the last minute to have a quilting day on Saturday. Neither one of us was feeling 100% but when it comes to quilting we just couldn't give up the day. It was very nice. I got a baby quilt top finished. I also finished my curtains. I had one window done but what you didn't know is that I had another window to finish. I heard that's called a blog finish.:)
Then I started a stacked coins with the scraps from my candy bar road to put at the end of my bed!!! I love how once you cut these to the width you want you don't have to worry about much else. Wonky sizes are good! It goes together quite easily. Now that I'm feeling much better I should be able to kick it out this week. (if I have the time):)
I also want to thank everyone for such nice comment on my king size and the curtains. You guys are so encouraging and I really appreciate it!! Hope you guys have a FANTASTIC day and week!!
