Mustache Quilt Finished

I just finished this one up.
As you can see I wasn't able to edit these photo's.
When I clicked to edit in Picasa
a window told me I have to download google
chrome to edit
I don't like google chrome but I went ahead and
 downloaded it
Then It took me forever to get to my old photo albums
and then the option for text wasn't there - just a bunch of
crap I didn't want to do.
I noticed flicker has changed too.
I'm going to go play around with both and see what I can do.
I even tried to upload straight from blogger but on my second photo it just stopped.
This might be my last blog post!!!!

Toy Story Quilt

                                              I had to make a quilt for Big Brother too!!
He loves Toy Story and Buzz is his favorite
I used blue fleece on the back and quilted it
with a panto - Fern Gully -
I thought it would look like some flames, or movement in space.
I'm not sure that I will use this panto again
It looks okay on the front but I don't like the way
it looks on the back. Maybe I will save it
for busy fabric. I really need to order some pantos to use on boy quilts
I mostly have flowers, feathers, hearts and such.
I also made a few bibs and burp pads for Mallory
and some car trash bags - here is what is left -
I've already gifted several of them
Now I'm on my way out to the cottage to load Kenzie's Mustach Quilt.
Thanks for looking!!
until later - Carol

Baby Quilt Finished

                                                          Happy Tuesday Morning!
I have a confession --
I have my sewing studio and I also have a spare room inside my house
where I keep my batting, present wrapping stuff, and odds and ends.
This room is also where I take my pictures of the finished quilts.
The room is such a mess I can't get in there to take a picture.
Shame! Shame! Shame!
I thought about straighten it up, but then I don't think I would get the four
quilts finished that I need to before I go back to the beach so I chose to
 take pictures in my studio.
Sorry about the photo's
a close up
I used all stash fabric for this quilt - Yeah ! ! !
I quilted a heart panto but
at the top of the quilt where the name is I did swirls (first time
and I needed more practice) and
outlined the name
I used fleece for the backing -
it is so soft.
Thanks for looking!!!
until later - Carol
