Brother's Done quilt

Well it is finally done!! I told each of the kids that they could pick out all the fabric for a quilt for thier very own so here is my oldest sons quilt. I finished the binding today and surprised him when he was done with school. It hasn't left his side since. I hope you love it, brother!!!


I am amazed at the technology out there and what we use! I mean I have three computers at my house. I do facebook. I have a blog (duh) well really I have two! I just started a twitter account. I am getting a computerized sewing machine in a couple of days. I mean it is truely amazing. I am thankful for technology and how it helps me daily. Whether it is for the microwave lunches or the embroidary machine working it's magic. The other thing I am thankful for is that it keeps food on our table and a roof over our heads. Yes, my husband is a geek. I love him for that. It means I don't have to learn to much of computer stuff.

so today I am thankful for technology in my daily life, even though sometimes it can drive me crazy!

Creative laziness

Okay I have a lot going on at my craft space right now!! I am making two quilts, one for my grandma (super excited about that) and one for my second son, the first already has his. Then I am making a friend who just had her second girl matching dresses. Well this is where the laziness came it. I found a cute pattern and so I started on the big dress. It was all going well until I got to the sleaves. The way that the pattern makers had you do it was totally stupid. So then I decided that this dress will be sleeveless. It was for summer anyway, right. It looks cute. I will post some pictures tomorrow when I finish the hem.

So am I the only one that hate it when the pattern is either VERY hard to understand or set up totally dumb!?!?!?

And the answer to fridays fact or fiction is fiction. In the movie Back to the future II they don't make any prediction about the 1997 world series. So there ya go!!

Have fun!!

Quilter's blog festival

Thank you to Amy at Amy's creative side for hosting a quilter's blog festival. So, here is my entry!

Okay so I am new to the quilting thing. I did my first one about a year ago with a tutorial online. I love blogs and the lovely people who put the time into them!

This is the fourth quilt that I made and it was for our bed. I wanted something bright and colorful that matched what I wanted and couldn't find anything like that (I have been looking for 5 years). So, when I began to quilt why not, I will make one for my bed!

I was a queen sized quilt and was a little bit abmitious for a newbie, but I did and I am proud of it!
This is the few from the front. I love the way that it turned out!
This is the backing. I love using sheets for the backing. I just stitched in the ditch for this one! It was the first one I did that for the rest I free motion quilted which I like a little bit more. I wanted to keep the crispness of the front of the quilt.
That is where all the quilt link are for all of blog land. Go have fun and get quilting!!

It is the craziest quilt I have ever seen, but he is LOVING it!!!
