One giant leap
I am not sure why I ever thought proper quilting was too scary, or too hard. Maybe it was because the new machine made what would have been a 12 hour job into a 3 hour job (and 2 hours of that was hand sewing the binding). Either way, the first of many little doll sized quilts is finished! I plan on making six of them to hang on the ladder in the living room. (The one on the now infamous squirrel chimney.)
The photo above is prior to washing, but is more true in color.
The second photo is after washing, with more of that wrinkly, well loved look. The color here is totally off, but it is very windy and rainy here this week.
In other news, Jack is really getting funny these days. We were coloring yesterday, and when I finished my dump truck picture he started clapping. Then he says "good job mama! You did it! It looks great." LOL He also has started asking questions, but with mixed up grammar. The latest is "what that was?" And when he heard thunder this morning he asked "noisy plane?" (I hadn't realized we haven't had thunder since his vocabularly really exploded.)
Toddlerhood = good times around here!
