WIP Sunday: Hamster's Quilt!

I shared some embroidered blocks a while back that my Grandma made probably around the time I was born. Since then they sat in her drawer until she found out she was having a great grand baby! She turned the blocks over to me and I turned them into something Hamster can treasure forever!Hamster's Quilt Top
The top is all done and ready to go to the quilter! It turned out square, but fairly large so I think it will make a perfect snuggle blankie. I'm going to have her quilt it with her long arm hand machine so she can only quilt around the embroidery as opposed to her computerized machine that would quilt it all over. I will take it to her tomorrow to let her work her magic!

Today is going to be work on the Grinch quilt! It is close to being a completed top now! Only 7 more blocks to applique and then putting it all together and a boarder! I might try to get it ready to go to the quilter by tomorrow too. I'm also itching to make another baby dress, but the quilt must get done! Hope everyone has a productive and happy Sunday!

SO cute! It reminds me of one of my first blankets, stitched like that but with yellow around the edges.
