When something's gotta give

You know those weeks where life throws a few extra balls at you and you just can't juggle everything? That's been my week. Nothing terrible has happened, but between a 3 year old with croup (aka very little sleep for child and parents) and needing to get a quilt finished by this Saturday I haven't had time to even think about my Decipher Your Quilt post. So thanks to my very understanding partner in crime, we will be taking a break from DYQ again this week, and will be back next Thursday to talk about 16 patches. 

On a more positive note, I did finish the quilting on the wedding quilt today and have made the binding, so it's looking like there will be a present finished for Saturday. I couldn't be happier with it (the texture is amazing!), so I'll leave you with a sneak peek and a promise of a full reveal in the next day or two :o)
