I love it when I get something done!!

     I love to quilt!! But, sometimes it takes a really long time to finish things. Especially the really big quilts.  Which is why I like to do small things and mixed media stuff. These things get done so much faster.  But, I do hang in there and get the BIG ones done eventually. :):) Here is one now!!

                                        This quilt is 90x90. I made it from scraps off my floor. (in a bin) When I work on projects all the little stuff gets put into this bin. I feel like I got a free quilt. :):)

                And here is the back. I used up fat quarters I didn't think I would use anymore. You know how we always change our minds in fabric choices. One minute I liked the fabric , the next ... not so much. But they make great backing fabrics. :):)   I also quilted it myself. I have been trying different QAYG methods. The method on this quilt is one I didn't like. But , in my blog surfing I found a very talented lady named Marianne, she teaches a fabulous QAYG method that I'm working on in a new quilt.  Well, I'm off to quilt some more. Ya'll have a super day!!

DON"T FORGET TO WORK ON YOUR QUILTIES!!!  I'm so excited!! So far we have 14 Ladies signed up!! They hail from..Nebraska, Washington, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland, California, New York, New England, Arizona, and Australia!! I can't wait to see every ones little treasures. Don't Forget Mail out date is OCT 15th.
