A new quilt project

This is what I paused to work on while waiting to get more is going to be a baby quilt for Roger's cousin's daughter.  I am having to order fabric for the backing...but soon as it comes in, I am going to get it together and get it quilted.   There things that I wish were different about it...but too late now.  This is only the second time I have used pre-cuts.  I used a charm pack called Bandana by Me and My Sister for Moda.  (For those of you who don't know...Moda is a fabric company and Me & My Sister are actually sisters that design some of the fabric lines.)

When the baby quilt is done, I want to get started back on my daughter's Lotus quilt.  She ordered batiks and had them sent to me, and she mailed some she had picked up, plus I bought some more.  I should have plenty to finish her quilt now.  I am wanting to get it back to it.
I am not sure how hot it got here today...I hung out a load of clothes at about 3:30 p.m. and there was no doubt in my mind that it would get dry.  They have been in for an hour or so.  I know I told one blog friend that our temps had been up to one temp...I think 84 or 85ºF yesterday.  I was getting that temp from on line...but when our local weather came on, he said it had been up to 89º.  Right now it is 91º...I just simply cannot take the real hot temps any more...I hoed the tomato plants and came in so red in the face!
I/we are going to be busy for the next couple of days.  I should get in some visiting but not sure how much.
