So - Easter Weekend was so much fun! Crazy at one point with 32 people (mostly kids) in my house. I probably said "Close the Door!" at least 100 times, but all in all it was the perfect weekend and I had a great time with my family.
Shan was here and I love it when she comes! She goes grocery shopping for me and catches me up on my food storage and she cooks every single meal! It's a nice trade off for room and board. Thanks Shan - you are the best!
One of the nights last week I showed Shan and her sisters my long arm machine - I grabbed some green fabric and threw it on the racks and let them try it out. Being the competitive person that Shan is - she wanted to make it a competition to see who could do the best quilting - then the guys would guess who quilted what.
Here's the whole piece. Shan had me re-create some of the quilting.
Not bad for the first time using a long arm! This one is Shan's.
This is Krista's.
And this cute ice cream cone is Diana's.
Mickey Mouse, hot dog, hamburger and a drink - all Shan's because she is the food guru that I can never be.
My re-creation of the hot dog and hamburger.
I think this is kind of fun - can't think of a quilt that would use hamburger quilting in it though. :)
Ice cream cone complete with cherry on top.
And my block - Clint didn't know I quilted a block and for a split second he looked at the block and was like "Wow - that's incredible!" Then he learned that it was my block real quick.
Fun little competition - it was great. I have a few other things I am working on that I can't show right now, but I will keep you posted! Also - I have a giveaway going on over at Jaybird's so head on over!
