quilts......

When I started quilting I bought this pattern....Sugar and Spice Paper Dolls by Amy Bradley. I absolutely loved it! but whoo was it hard to do when you are first starting out with the whole quilting thing. I started it. Threw it out in frustration. I started it again. Threw it out again. Then a couple of months ago I got serious. I decided to tackle it and not stop til it was done. Last night?? FINISHED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today it goes on the frame to be quilted. :)




Look how cute some of these blocks are!! Love them! And yes my little girl is brown. We are the United Nations over here and my youngest was concerned that her Zulu (She swears she is descended from a long line of proud Zulu warriors...why she thinks this we do not know but hey?? REALLY REALLY FUNNY!!!) would not be represented. Never fear, mom is here. :)

Oh, and the machine is working like a dream. It is so much fun to put a quilt on there and get it done. I've quilted my swap gift for the Chookyblue swap...... it turned out perfectly!!! Can't show pics as it is a surprise to my swap partner. Let me just say that having this frame in the house makes me oh so happy people! hahha







Here is the Be-Attitudes quilt fresh off the frame. It just needs the binding done. Next week is binding week. Yep, I do now how to bring the wild and crazy.

Okay, I gotta throw some laundry in the washer and vacuum so that I can peruse the JoAnns sale today!! Happy quilting!

Oh happy day, Dawn! First of all, congrats on getting all the kinks worked out. You are a quilting dynamo now! The paper dolls are adorable! The Zulu princess will be quite pleased, I'm sure. I just love the Be-Attitudes pattern - and you did a super job. Find anything good at Jo-Ann's? I got a mess of coupons in the circular today...it's on tomorrow's to-do list. Keep up the good work, girl! Piece....

You have really made some gorgeous quilts Dawn....Isn't this fun, being able to write comments on your blog now? Yes, I do wake up with a very calm attitude because of the sea.
Hugs,

Glad the tension issues are resolved -- now there's no stopping you. Of course, the binding will start piling up now that you can quilt them so quickly (ask me how I know?).

Wow, 20 and joining the Air Force, those are two big events for a mom to deal with.
