Needle and Thread Thursday and a Sneak Peek!

Well friends, I have officially been sewing like a crazy woman this week.  On Monday, I took Neapolitan Sundae to school to show, and my principal loved it.  As it happens, she has a nephew that will be born in the next week or so and she really wanted a baby boy quilt.  Sure, I said.  No problem at all!  I usually finish a quilt every week(ish) so I figured it would be no big deal.  Except for one little problem-  I forgot that next week is Fall Break (thank the sweet Lord above).  So, that turned a Monday quilt delivery (which would have allowed me the weekend to finish up), to a Friday deadline.  Four nights-  yikes!

I managed to pull it off y'all- and a day early to boot!  Here's a little sneaky peek!

We have a really pretty wooded area right next to our school, so I'm planning on a quick photo shoot during my lunch break tomorrow, and then I'll get to deliver it.  So, keep an eye out for the reveal post with all of the good daylight pics!

Last week, NTT had some amazing projects linked up.  I just love looking at all of the links and getting oodles of inspiration!  Here were a few that really caught my eye-
