I pinned Gram's quilt and I'm ready to quilt it. I hope it goes either quickly or unexpectedly enjoyably. I think the quilting is the boring part. Not boring enough to pay someone else to do it though. random close up
This is the freaking expensive batting I got. I got freaking expensive batting because I wanted it to look antique right away and this is so dense and thin I thought it would help me with that. I also accidentally went to the shop without my measurements. So I got three yards of this. It's like 80 inches wide. I have TONS left, I used about half of what I bought. Sigh. Upcoming baby quilt with freaking expensive batting.
To cheer myself up (after buying freaking expensive batting) I made my friend's son this change purse. He needs it for his milk money as he's a big Kindergardner now.
I got this fabric at the thrift store to back Ethan's quilt in. I love it in person with the fabrics of the quilt. It looks a little too dull here. I also got Volume 11 of Just Cards! magazine in the mail today, I have some cards in it! So that's fun. I'm such a dork, my neighbor was outside in his yard when I got the mail and I handed it to Ethan and said, "Look baby, Mommy is published in this magazine." Like either Ethan OR my neighbor cares! haha. But yall care right? :) TONS of my friends are in this one too. It's so fun. Sherri, Terri, Awana, Ethel, Vicki, Keri, Kim Hughes (who I don't know personally but I stalk her enough to "know" her), Charity, Karen, probably more, tell me if you are in it and I'll add you! I gotta go quilt.
