WiP/FMC - Transitions

What a week - there was packing {cramming everything I could in the car}, driving {reassuring the cats over and over that this would not be the worst thing EVER}, unpacking {reassuring the cats that acclimating to my parents' three cats would, in fact, be the worst thing EVER}, and now, repacking to visit my husband in training.

Speaking of repacking...
This is the result of my 15-minutes-a-day hotel kit cutting. Eight kits, ready to go! Awesome use of 15 minutes. Today I'm hunting for a bag big enough to carry my sewing machine on the plane.

Oh, and random aside - my friend had her baby last weekend and I'll be shipping the UBG quilt to her! And another friend found out she's having a boy, so I'm ahead on the baby quilts now.

Fat Quarter Stars - 6/12 blocks - none
LQS Saturday Sampler 2012 - 12/36 - I picked up June & July before I left, so I won't get too far behind this summer
 LQS Saturday Sampler 2011 - on summer hiatus
My Precious Quilt Along {Shoe Boxes} - the only thing I've been working on this week. My sister {the gimp} matched the remaining blocks and did the layout.

Oh, and speaking of extra cats...
 Someone else wants to be featured as "the cat on the quilt."
