Friday, June 5


Right before we left for Japan, I decided to take a quilting class. I was able to get everything finished before I left, so my quilt could be sent off to the long-arm quilter to be "quilted". Collette from Quiltology said she would ship it to me when it was finished - and this week it arrived!

I love it! I put it in our living room and I can't stop looking at it. The fabrics are so beautiful and the stitching from the quilting is so beautiful, too. I think I'm addicted to quilting and fabrics now, I just can't stop looking at them online to see which ones I'll get for my next quilt! I want to make quilts for everyone I know. (Don't worry Mrs. Mecher - I'll be knitting still, too!)

Look at the beautiful stitching!

So beautiful! Is there anything you do junky, Abbie? May family may want to kick me out and insert you in my place since you fit in with their giftedness better!

Ok, from a guy's perspective, I love quilts. I think they are so cool and they totally remind me of my grandmother who makes some of the nicest quilts. They are super comfortable too.

I'm not worried Abbie. I took a 20 year break from knitting. Boy, am I old! The quilt is amazing! It really is a work of art. Love the colors.

WOW! I tried quilting when I lived up at camp, I liked it, but the fabrics you chose are way more exciting. I love the Amy Butler fabrics. Great Job!
