storm damage and good news

Hi friends!!!  I have been messing around instead of making blocks.  I made this granny square when i was making my daughter's quilt but it's a whole lot bigger than the others and i never could figure out a way to put it in the middle of her quilt.
Now i am making  a table topper out of it, i have it quilted but i don't have any thing in my stach that i like for the binding.
We had a wind storm yesterday, 60 miles an hour winds so hubby was making repairs on the barn early this morning and we had a lot of dead branches on the ground. It nearly tore the roof off of our shed on the side of the barn.!!!  that's where hubby stores all his" toys." What was so strange was they said rain and it showed up on rader but instead of rain it was dust and all kind of debree in that wind.  We only got a few drops of rain and hubby watered the garden again. Red haired girl and her husband was at cade's cove  in the smokeys when the wind hit , they are fine, i talked to them last night, but some were killed up there.
Now our good news. We found out last week that katie jo is getting a new sister or a brother. that will be 8 greatgrands.  I will have to make a quilt , a blanket and booties for this one.  "if you make for one your have to make for all 24."
 Well good sewing friends      Quilt Happy
