It's been a while

My daughter, Mari, and two grands, Heather and Jessica, came for a two week visit in July. Mari was supposed to be deployed in Sept but she just found out that she isn't going. I'm glad about that. We went to Imperial Beach for the sand castle competition. That was the first time in a very long time that I had all 3 of my kids and the grands together in one place. That felt good!
Then we took a trip to Knotts Berry Farm for the day. I discovered that I am way too old for all that walking around and sitting while the kids enjoyed themselves.

Last night John and I went over to help Joe and Lisa move into a rental house. I'm so glad they are out of that apartment and the kids have some place they can go out and play for a change. And it also means I don't have laundry to do anymore. Since they moved into the apartment 2 years ago and couldn't use their washer and dryer, I've been doing their laundry for the last 2 years. A lot can pile up in the course of a week with 5 people.

I need some help on this quilt. It's been on the frame for 4 days now. The customer said she wanted circles so in the 15" blocks, I've quilted circles with triangles going out to somewhat replicate one of the patterns in the print but I am totally stumped on the squares and hst that are 7" but there is a 1" flange all the way around.

I hope everyone has a great week.
