No seriously....a quilt a day.

No, i didn't quit my job and start a quilting career. Just have needed some "cool down" time. So quilting and my lovely piano are now those outlets. Yay for my pretty piano. I will have to name it and photograph it, and stick it up here. But for now, you get quilt #2. this is for sweet Nali-bugs. That is why it says bugs. One thing to remember....If you have a fuzzy back (this one is chinelle), make sure that you do more than a 2'' binding so that you can have a bigger seam allowance to be POSITIVE that you catch all the fuzzy etc. Lesson Learned. :) Next quilt.....Marley's. She chose multiple shades of pink, and wanted it to have a puppy on it. Hmmmmm Not quite sure how that is going to work, but we'll figure it out.

Quilt a day & randall & poo. yeah, that's right poo

So here is the most random post, but it pretty much sums up our last couple weeks. First of all we bought our camera. His name is Randall. he is beautiful, and he is 21 mega pixels of deliciousness. Some of the first shot taken by him

OK, second shot, This is what happens when you allow grammie to feed your mutts table food all of sunday afternoon...... just take my word for it, don't invite grammie next time. :)

Ok, so my photos aren't loading in the correct format, but I'm not blog-ged enough to know how to change it....oh well. So photo #s the rest are of my quilt a day program. This quilt was done with NO hand sewing. Yeah, you heard me right....NO hand sewing!!!! Machine quilted and bound. I still have feeling in the tips of my fingers, and I just finished it like 10 minutes ago. I think that i have found my new favorite binding. Watch out though, you can fry the batting as you are pressing. Who knew. :)
