Description

My best friend comes to me and tells me her 19 y/o son got his 17 y/o girlfriend pregnant, so I guess I have to get them a baby present. Drama and a whole bunch of months later oops I forgot to get something and the shower is next weekend. I am so glad JoAnn Fabrics is open late everything was 30% off and I don't have pink in my "Man stash" so needless to say now I do. started when i got home at 9 pm and finished assembling blocks at about 5 am now to finish the top and get to my mid arm to do some practicing of the pattern quilting. Well it is on the mid arm waiting for me to get up the nerve 6AM going to wait for tomorrow. Okay now it is all quilted and looks like a million bucks 7:30 pm, time to start getting all my Binding ready. okay after taking a few days off I got all of the binding done and put a decorative stitch along the binding to strengthen the edge. I think this is one of the most dainty projects I will ever do and it is going to a little girl that may some day appreciate the work I put in to it.

I love the soft sweet colors you are using. Just perfect.

Curt

Thank you all I guess sweet is an okay expression here just so I can maintain my manly stature. well time to get back to it.

True

There is nothing better than a man who knows how to do sweet when it is needed and this is definitely one of those times;-)

Don't keep us in suspense. Where's the picture of the quilting?!

Curt

Terryt1955 did you see the picture of the quilting?

Terryt1955

Ahh this time I did. Very sweet and in keeping with the quilt! Are you going bind it by machine or hand sew?

I say this all the time, but I LOVE simple patchwork squares. The quilting looks great! Nice job.

AllPatchedUp

LOL!! Tell him that again Kristananne !!

He looked at me like I was kinda crazy when I first suggested he do a simple patchwork quilt (ahem he likes things complicated) But....after he had it laid out he realized how amazing that 'simple' pattern is and was happy with it. So...tell him again! Patchwork is awesome!!! smirk

Curt

ty Kristananne I like the simple patchwork pattern it is a lot of fun to do and is very beautiful. AllPatchedUp was right again, mister man was trying to do something too difficult when it could be simple like this.

True

Love this and the quilting!! And love patchwork...

Mymble

Really great- Patchwork is my fave too- simple but not simplistic- and - the quilting is just fantastic. Oh... and make mine a Kir Royale please!

That is beautiful! I love in your profile that after you bought your sewing machine, you haven't stopped spending!

You must have really taken to it to invest in a quilting machine too.
