It’s finally starting to feel like Spring here! Starting with this happy baby quilt.
It’s done!! I just love it! The quilt is for a baby girl, so I thought some pretty swirly daises were in order. Again it’s all freehand. I took about a 100 photos of this quilt. It was hard for me to choose which one to post because it’s just so cute!!
I love all the texture on the back. I received a lovely email yesterday from the customer, Kim regarding the quilting. She loved it, so far!! I feel super honored that Kim trusted me to quilt this.
I have a little story with this quilt…there was some frogging done on it. LOL!! I’m learning every day more and more I’m a tiny BIG perfectionist. I started quilting this and realized I wasn’t completely happy with the thread color I chose. I should have stuck with my gut feeling and went with the pale yellow to begin with! I called Scott for a second opinion. He, of course thought it was lovely and to NOT remove the stitches. I didn’t listen and out they went. Scott took pity on me and helped me!! What a guy!! Thank goodness because it was more of job then I thought was going to be! He sat on one side of the machine on my stool and I sat right on top of my table!!
Have I mentioned the A-1 is built like a rock?? I am so glad I changed the thread because I love how the quilt turned out!
I’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to see these…daffodils will be blooming soon!!
I’m off to pick my NCAA Tourney Brackets. Our family does this every year. There are eleven of us total that play. The winner gets $110!! And guess who’s won the last TWO YEARS??? ME!!!! Oh yes, I have a big target on my back. I”ll tell you my strategy…I pick with my heart. I always have Michigan State in the final!!! The last two years Michigan State has made a surprising run for the championship. No one else picked them to make it that far, but me. This season has been a rough one for MSU. MSU Ladies Basketball, however has had a phenomenal season! Way to go! Now, back to my brackets… should I follow my heart (wishful thinking) or common sense??? It IS St. Patrick’s day, so maybe I should go for the GREEN!!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
