Another Top Quilted

This picture was taken at 2:40 this morning.  Yes, I did it again.  I finished quilting this one at 4:30 a.m.  The good thing is, I can sleep in to make up for staying up all night!
I cut this quilt out at least three years ago and had sewn some of the blocks together.  I saw it on a blog, sorry no clue which one.  It is extremely simple as long as you keep your "peaks" going in the same direction.  The fact that I did not always do that means I have another one of these started.   There are some fun fabrics in this one that I think a boy might enjoy.  This one will be going to the Boys' Home, too.  That makes FOUR finished!  Yay!
In other news, I was awakened this morning by pounding on our roof.  When I got up to see what was happening, this is the sight that greeted me outside the front door.  Hail!  Lots of it and pounding down like crazy.   
There was a good bit of breakage of tender vegetation in the back yard, but nothing that won't grow back.  Except the plums which now litter the ground!  I am really thankful  It could have been so much worse.
Really weird!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.  We have more rain forecast, but we do still need it.  Hopefully it won't be too much.
Hugs and kisses,

Wow, that was some bad hail. Sorry about the plums. None of our fruit set this spring except the pomegranate tree. I would cry if the fruits were beaten up.

You have been buzzing right along with your quilting. Do you pantograph or free-motion? I have a bunch of pantos for short arm frame quilting, you may have if you could use. They are a set by Golden Thimbles. Let me know ;-)

Always love to see your yard. The hail is crazy. It is 92 here. Warm for May. I always love to see how you get quilts done. Inspires me.
