Happy April, everyone!
I am hoping the projected LOVELY forcast that we have here in North Carolina is NOT some kind of April Fools prank. It’s supposed to be gorgeous…ALL WEEK!
You can see here that I did finally get the Wonky Wishes quilt loaded in the machine.
I had been toying with the idea of piecing a batting for it out of leftover hunks and chunks, but decided that I can do that easier on baby quilts than I can on a full size quilt like this one – this measures 80” X 95” so it’s pretty big.
Besides, I wanted to get to the fun part – the quilting!
Just on my first row here – loving it so far!
Can you see the quilting? Lots of swirls and curls!
I’m using a light gold colored thread, it is blending through everything just right.
I love WEIRD fabric combos!
Here we have some civil war and traditional florals next to aqua “cow spots” and one of Tonya’s zombies. LOL!!
Loads of “Memory” fabrics in here too!
The center of this star was acquired when Jason was about a year old. I was working at the art and craft supply store in Ontario Oregon while the DH was back in school. I made shop displays, and this was a scrap from a baby quilt I made as a shop display. My son is now 30!
I’ll resume the quilting tonight after today’s mail order load is done – books are still shipping, and book orders are still coming in! Another 10 cases of books (there are 30 books in a case) are due to arrive on my door step today. If you missed what all THAT excitement is about – click HERE!
And Now for some FUN! This is hot off the presses from Alex Anderson--
Her hubby John sent me a heads up message a couple of days ago, just to be SURE you got a chance to see this wonderful informative video on The Quilt Show’s Blog – The Daily Blog.
