is done. This one is 60 x 85. I think I will do more binding cut at 2 inches--I really like the look.
I have the top done from Pat's class, but can't find the thread I want to use--maybe I just dreamed I had it!! (I do dream of pretty cones of thread as well as pretty bolts of fabric!)
Am working this weekend, so will Try to limit my fabric acquisition to only NEEDED fabric--which gives me free rein! Oh, well.
I have parked my hiney boggs on the couch for a marathon of binding---I cut it at 2 inches instead of 2 1/4, so the stitches will have to be smaller so there will be no gaping!! Therefore, it will take longer--good thing I love that part of quilting!
Kelli at thatlookslikeitneedsstitches.blogspot.com has a great giveaway going on---fat quarters! Check it out.
The four children I just made quilts for love them.. Their mom sent me a video she took of them pulling the quilts out of the bag and each child grabbed the one made for them. Score!! And they snuggled in on the couch all afternoon. And that's why I make and give quilts away. (No snickering or "told you so"s, Becca!!!)
She says she's craft impaired, but I checked out the back of this embroidered dish towel and she is good!
And she knows I love pink flamingos and the beach---the kind that has hot sand, not the beaches around here with cold rocks and ice chunks!!
Oops! Deleted the photo of the blocks I had on the wall ( Making Out with Bob challenge on a quilt list) and they are now down, pinned in order, ready to be sashed. My bad.
Tonight I will be in a quilt class taught by my wonderful boss lady, so a PIG (Project In Grocery bag) will be slaughtered and added to the WIP (Works In Progress) group.
The sun is shining and it was 0 degrees this morning....Oh, Joy!! I love global warming!
is at the shop. It uses charm squares from the Etching line by Moda.
I will have DH assist in the pictures of the others. (That way they will be straighter than I can take when they are laying on the floor!!)
to having my computer life in order! I am posting this on my new laptop, which has the bare minimum installed so far....DH only got home last night and so far has spent all morning plowing and shoveling!! Did I mention we got over a foot of snow since Sunday??? And more is expected...I love spring--she said with a great deal of sarcasm!!!
I am married to a wonderful man and have two adult children-both males. The eldest made me a mother-in-law to a very sweet lady. The youngest is far away and single. I work part time at a quilt shop, which feeds my fabric addiction.
