I'm hoping this will motivate me

I saw this on Tangles of the Yarn Princess and I thought it looked like fun, so I'm going to give it a shot. I should be working on quilt #3, but I'll do it afterwards. Hopefully I'll get most of the quilt top done today or tomorrow and then I'll take a photo and put it up.

Here goes!

Yeah, it feels good.

Yes, it was on the way to Disney World once.
Had a pillow fight -
Definitely. It's a good stress reliever.
