Somehow We Quilters Find a Way

School & sports meetings, football practices, teen car problems (oy!), meals, laundry, family visiting from out of town....need I go on?  But somehow, peice by peice, we quilters find a way to get our projects done.   No, I haven't finished Cate's quilt yet, but I did manage to get the entire top together and wanted to drop in to post a pic. 

I love how the black border took the almost-complete random-ness of it and made it come together.  (I did make each row of blocks similar but I think I should've kept the pink squares to the center of every block instead of doing black in the middle row?)  Hot pink really isn't my "thing".  (I lived through the 80's and don't feel the need to do it again!)  But I am completely drawn to black and white patterns every time I see them so working with this wasn't too bad.  And, I have so many scraps that I'm making a stacked coins quilt from each of the girls' quilts.  But we'll save that for another day.  This evening, I'm off to "walk through" my high school daughter's schedule and meet her teachers....
