Today I went to a party at a trampoline warehouse and jumped myself to near a near heart attack, so my monday update is that I'm going to be really, really sore tomorrow. No quilting, though.
Cheesy

OMG That sounds like sooooo much fun!

Same old same old here... nothing new to report...  I'm steering clear of everyone's fabrics due to my family and I coming down with "The Ick."  =)

Monday Update ~ I'm seeing all these people that only have a few blocks left and I'm beginning to feel a little behind...  I added two more blocks to my gallery.  I spent the weekend finishing up my quilts from rounds 2 and 3.  I'm almost done, just my daughters to finish...  then back to blocks!  =)

I've finished my group two quilt!!!!   And even though it's nowhere near perfect... I am just sooo wicked pleased!


The front.


The back.

This is the first quilt I have actually quilted and finished myself.  I've tied quilts and I've had others bind them for me.  In hind sight I think I should have done a stitch in the ditch quilting rather than the diagonals... and I was lazy and used my machine to do the binding rather than blind stitch it by hand(my hand sewing sucks big time!). 

A big thank you to athenamat, audrey1999, flashleyashley, 1boy1girl1kitty2, MissDisney, j_q_adams, ritapizza, klum78, SewHelpMe, and Jenicat for making my son's quilt so awesome!

I've finished it!!!!!!  It's so not perfect but I love it just the same.  It'll be a gift for my mom... 



I prefer a fatter, puffier quilt so I'll just add ties later.  I used two layers of batting for extra puff.  My mom's always cold so this should keep her a bit warmer. 



I figure tying in the middle of each block should do nicely.  My great grandmother was a quilter and always tied her quilts with yarn.  After a few washings the ties were just small balls of puff that were always a comfort to fiddle with while snuggled up. 

Thank you to athenamat, 1boy1girl1kitty2, ChristianTrekki, Tsuki_Tsubasa, MissDisney, lourapalmr, mimiw, Stafishtaylz, thanate, FlashleyAshley, and klum78 for making this quilt so wicked cool!
Round Three's quilts are next!  And yes, that is my son's purple hair in the bottom right corner of the first picture...  Grin

And I loved the first one so much that I decided to make another!  My sister loved to too so this one is for her daughter...  Here's a progress pic:



Here's the finished back piece.  I'm using Vanna's Choice again, this time in Dusty Purple and the letter (also a J) will be white.  I'll post more progress pictures as I go... I'm half way done with the front.

If everyone thinks they're annoying then why do we keep using them?? 

Because, even thought we hate to admit it... it's kinda fun to be a little annoying...  =)

Monday Check In! 

FYI - If I'm fairly quiet or forget to check in and you need to hear from me just pm me...  My 8 yo son has been having blood sugar issues(he's hypoglycemic... but something's up... lost weight...  new symptoms...  hoping to have it sorted out soon) and I haven't been online much. 

Thanks!
