September 7, 2011

OH Good Grief!  Has it been that long?  I'm the world's worst blogger....It seems that I write it all done for one group....abbreviate the same for the other group - ... less for the 3rd one...and by the time I need to post here I'm bored listening to stuff about ME...

So I have a friend from a group who asked me to do a couple of quilts for her.  I got one...then she asked me to hold off and do her Granddaughter's first...Thanks to the USPS they sent the quilt to Florida from Alabama THEN who knows where cause the tracking # information said it was not available.  FINALLY it got here yesterday.  I loaded it up - sent pictures of thread - we finally got another snafoo worked out by posting pictures on Facebook...plus the added benefit was - we got opinions from other quilters on which thread to use.  rofl...  This morning - bobbins wound...Squiggy loaded and ready to ROCK & ROLL... we quilted flowers, butterflies (traced from the fabric for the backing) and swirls for little Maddie Grace's gramma quilt.

Butterfly/flowers/& swirl quilting



I sure hope Maddie Grace likes to snuggle up with her quilt.

It will head home this afternoon...............THANKS AGGIE!
