Woohoo!!

O.K. Here is the 3 hour wonder boy quilt done. I quilted it. I know....I can't believe it either! I put a wavy line down the seams as suggested by a quilting blog friend and then tried to meander the border. Not bad...not great either....but finished. After I looked at it I thought I should have been more adventurous and quilted something in the white squares. Maybe next time. Can't tell if you can see that the back got a little ruffled in a couple of areas but I sure wasn't going to pick all those stitches out. I used flannel on the back so it would be nice and cuddly. Now to attempt the pink wonder girl quilt.


In my last post I showed a kit that I had purchased on Thursday. Here it is all put together. I love love love the fabrics. They are Moda Glace (I think). Sure is nice to use a line of fabrics so I know that they all go together. Also sure is nice that someone else cut out all those pieces and labeled them for me so all I had to do was sit down and sew. I really love the border fabric. This is the first of 2010 Christmas projects. Hope I keep up this momentum!
Boy I sure love quilting, documenting my addiction in this blog, and reading blogs from all of you and your experiences with quilting. Thanks for stopping by. Lynda
