I Made It!

By "it," I mean my deadline, not just the quilt this time.  Josh's dad was in town last weekend, and in order to not have to pay shipping on the quilts I was making for some Oklahoma folk, I wanted to finish them in time to pack them in his car for the trip back.  And I did!  Three of them were posted in my last update, but the crown jewel (read: the most time consuming) has yet to be seen.  Well, voila!




This was my first time doing applique and my first time doing a pieced back - I will definitely do both again.  Also now that the weather is clearing up, I plan on snapping more of my pictures outside.  The colors look so much better in the first picture than the last picture.  I was kind of sad to say goodbye to this one, but I have more projects up my sleeve that will soon get my mind off of this one!

Love this! I have fabrics all ready to get cut out for my "Little Leaves" project. It's not so little though... 8 blocks by 6 blocks to make it a large twin sized blanket...! I think it'll take me years to complete it. My daughter is 3 now...maybe by the time she graduates highschool she can have it! lol!

This quilt could not be any more beautiful. Are there quilting contests? You should enter them and win tons of money. :)
