Fun Bright Quilt
I have to admit, I love this quilt! It's so bright and fun. The applique is just perfect. I was nervous at first because I wasn't crazy about my thread color choice, but as soon as I pulled the quilt off the frames I felt better.
Am I the only quilter that gets nervous about a quilt? I had a friend (Emily) tell me "Your job is so fun for us who wait with baited breath for your results." I liked what she said and I am going to try and look at each quilt with a new perspective because I am usually just so nervous about it that I forget to totally enjoy quilting and realize that my customers are excited to get their artwork back.
I tried this new filler, it's just an oval within an oval, I love it!
So, do you have those days where you just have to get out of the house and do what you want and spend a little money on things that you don't need? I had one of those days and my little guy tagged along with me. It's amazing how quiet (not screaming because he is being teased) he is when his older sister isn't around and how it's fun to see his personality shine because we had one-on-one time. We went to Walmart and looked around, we got him a new car and went to subway. I had a chicken bacon ranch sub that wasn't all that good, but he had a tuna sandwich and ate the whole thing, it was even okay that he spilled his chocolate milk everywhere. Just me and him, it was so fun. This picture of him is my most recent one, I couldn't help but take this picture because he was wearing his shake all over his face. Oh, and do you see his bracelet? His Grandma made that for him and he loves it! So cute, he wears it everyday. He doesn't like it when I take it away from him during nap time.
