Caleb's b-day Quilt

Caleb's birthday card arrived while I was in the middle of my Roman Stripe piecing.

For a micro second It occurred to me I should make a quilt to celebrate his growing up !!
But,... what pattern?

Once I had time to think, it occurred to me I actually had a lot of bugs in a jar! ( fron an old swap) and if I hurry, and with the help D/H with meals and stuff I could in the little time I have, complete the quilt in a week!!

I do better under pressure. lol

Cinco De Mayo was not a celebration priority this year, so I spend the afternoon piecing it. I quilted in my old MONTGOMERY WARD machine, this was given to me on my first anniversary many years ago, we just celebrated or 30+ this week .

This morning I made the label and I will make to the party on time.
