Having an attack of nervous pre op energy I decided to take it out on these two care quilts I started when the surgeon strike were active, and I did not know if I were coming or going. Today I have machine quilted them and sewn bindings on, all by machine. It was good to finish these quilts so I can start fresh when I come home from hospital. The strip quilt was very fun to do and I have more planned in my head. They are great for using strips fast.
