This is to document my love of and obsession with fabric and quilts! The true, guilty story of buying "just a little bit more", of shopping at thrift stores for the extra large mens shirts to use in your next quilt..and yes..even eyeing up your best friends blouse wondering if she'd notice if you "borrowed" it and just how many 2 inch strips you could get out of it!

Finally a Finish!!

I usually have to deal with one of the cats checking out my new quilts, but this time TWO of them claimed it..and I mean claimed it! They just would not leave this one alone. Finally, I was able to get them to move long enough for me to finish the quilt up and here it is:
And because my girls get jealous when we use their coop for pics and don't include them IN the pics, here we go:
And the prima donna who didn't want to just be one of the crowd:
Tonight I will handstitch the binding down and I can finally give this to my son, Tom....who has waited since Nov 2010 for this quilt!!
