Bugs, Bugs, Bugs Everywhere!





I've mentioned before that I don't have a camera (yet....rumor has it that some of my kids are talking about getting me one for my birthday soon....oh happy day!). Anyway, I didn't have anymore pictures of quilts to add to my blog until this past weekend. Nicky and Patrick came for a visit and brought their camera and took lots more pictures so I'll have more to add to my blog.
We had a busy couple of days taking pictures, canning 3 batches of blackberry jam, 28 quarts of peaches and even cleaned out a storage room taking a trunk full of stuff to DI (Goodwill) and throwing a bunch of stuff in the garbage also. The storage looks so clean and neat and organized now. Thank you Nicky!
The quilt above is about the 4th Bug Jar Quilt that I've made so far. I love them. Every little boy should have a bug jar quilt. Each one gets bigger and better. The first one was baby quilt sized, no applicued extras and quilted by machine by me. This one is about 68 x 80 inches and quilted by a professional long-arm quilter. I don't know if you can see the great quilting....it is done in yellow thread and is lots of bugs and flowers. Ants are marching around the whole outside border too. It was quilted by a great quilter at the Corn Wagon Quilt Shop in Springville, Utah. There are appliqued bugs, lizards, snails, frogs, spiders and a mouse even. This one is for Nicky's future son. I have a daughter-in-law, Katy (Gary's wife) who has put in a request for one too. Guess I'd better start looking for a few more bug fabrics.
Happy quilting to you all. Lynda

Bug quilts are so cute, I need to make one for my grandson! I gave Suzanne and Dee your blog address, they were asking about you yesterday.

Hi Lynda! So nice of you to comment on my blog; thank you!
Your jar quilt is so much fun. Grandson and I have been looking at the pictures for a while and found lots of things he knew. I am sure he would love one too; I think I have to start collecting novelty fabrics.
The non allergenic cats are so cute!!
