Quilting? What's that?

Finally! I sat down and actually did some sewing on a quilt tonight. Okay, a tablerunner, but it will be quilted. This is a quilt-as-you-sew project.
I have needed to work on it for several weeks now but so many things have gotten in the way. Actually, I needed to figure out how to make this runner longer as per my client's request and so I've been putting it off. After working with it tonight, it turns out that all I have to do is add more squares and sewn rectangles. The squares along the sides will be cut in half, making triangles and then I'll bind it in black. I call it a tablerunner but my client will use it to cover her piano bench. Thus, the musical note fabric.

I have it all laid out on the backing and backing and hope to get it sewn down by the weekend. I also have several fleece blankets that need embroidered names added. But, I'm off to bed. I had a wonderful day with my granddaughters and my dad. He's doing well and even came home without any bandages on his legs! Yaayyy!! I don't even remember how long he's had ulcers on his legs. This is the first time in almost 5 years, I think, that he is bandage-free! Please pray that he stays this way.
