Rainbow Hand Quilting - 50%

There has finally been some quilting going on around these parts again.  It's been way too long!

I got to spend sit and sew for several hours yesterday.  Between the quilting, the sunshine, and a documentary, it was the best evening I could ask for!

Ten squares of the noisy critters panel are quilted and there are ten still to go.  At the rate I'm going, I might have it finished for the little one's first birthday.  (The baby is due any day now.)  Ha!

The back has been a little stretchier than I remember flannel being, but I'm liking this piece more and more as it works its way towards quiltdom.

The clock (in the lower right) looks like a little bit like a Mario Brothers bomb from the back.  It makes me laugh, and I think it might be one of my favorites!

A Plea for Help

I haven't had much time to quilt lately, but this morning I was excited to show off some blocks that I've managed to squeeze in.

Except it turns out that my iron is leaking...  And I had left my finished blocks sitting underneath my ironing board.

The two worst ones.  What a way to start a Monday...

So now I'm considering just throwing out the whole project.  I don't know what this means for my ability to wash the quilt if I make it, and I'd rather not put in all the effort if it's just going to ruin itself when it's done.

If anyone has any advice, I would appreciate it.
