Now for the binding........

I finally sent and got this quilt top back. Here it is:
I sent it to Shirley and I do think she did a MARVELOUS job. I think their prices are Great too.
Maybe some day I will brave free motion quilting but for now when I want a meandering done on a quilt I will definately be sending it to Shirley at Cross Country Quilting.

So, now all I have to do is add the binding and wash it and it will be ready to go!!!

I am also preparing my mom's Candy Bar Road Quilt to be sent to Cross Country Quilting. I was going to stitch in the ditch or even do a diaganol quilting but I just really think it would look much better with meandering.

Madagascar Quilt

My daughter is the BIGGEST Madagascar fan. She hasn't ever gotten really "in to" anything until she saw this movie. I bet you she has watched it at least 2 times a day since she discovered this movie. So, me being the wonderful Mommy that I am (lol) I decided to make her a Madagascar Quilt. So I layed it out and measured lines with tape over and over and over.....

I also sewed each line after it was measured. Over and over and over.........

And the finished quilt is..........................Crooked.........lmao What the hell??Well, the good part is that my daughter is only 3.5 years old so she doesn't know the difference between straight and crooked right now..... She LOVES it and that is the part that matters :-)

Baby Doll Quilt

I made this baby doll quilt to match my daughter's quilt I made her. I just used the left over blocks from her quilt. She LOVES it! The thing is, she won't let her babies use it. She covers her pillow with it at night night

Wanted: One Yard Measurements of Fabric

I am in need of one yard measurements of fabric. I need 100% cotton, flannelette, or cotton knits. I am in the process of making things for charities. I thought perhaps if you have any of these fabrics laying around unwanted I will be very very happy to take them.

I also will take any unused receiving blankets.I am willing to pay the shipping.

Please pass it along!!!

Mom's Candy Bar Road Quilt Top

I am making this quilt for my mom. It is The Candy Bar Road Pattern. I used fabric from Moda's Miss Jump's Scrap Bag. These colors are so her. I know this because they are so me as well......
My mom and I are sometimes almost ridiculously a lot alike :-)
