Pinewood Derby Quilt

OMG, our kitchen is a mess! As previously mentioned, we are redoing the kitchen, keeping the flooring and the cabinets and changing everything else. Today the old counter tops came off, and stuff is stashed everywhere. There is no sink or stove, so we got to eat out tonight! My husband has been working SOOOOOOOO hard.

Tomorrow is a big day, because the new counters will be installed. After that, DH will set the back splash tile and grout it, and we will be almost finished. We can't come to an agreement about window treatments.

I do have one Project Linus quilt finished, Pinewood Derby--designed, of course, by Sindy Rodenmayer at www.fatcatpatterns.com

My son loved making these little cars with his dad when he was in Cub Scouts and racing them on that big Saturday in January!

I tried something different with the quilting instead of plain old quilting in the ditch. I set my machine on a decorative stitch and loaded it with bright orange thread and then quilted along all the edges of the sashing. I really like the way it looks, although it took a long time!
