4 1/2 spools of thread9 bobbins3 quilting needles6 hours of quilting time (roughly)

It’s done!! I am so excited, and proud to have this accomplishment under my belt. I will probably never do it again – but I am happy to have quilted this “monster quilt” myself :) I’ll show you more of the quilting once the binding is on and it has been washed – I can’t wait!!

Blessings~Amy

The other resident :) She’s Joe’s dog (I’m allergic) but I love having her around when the house is quiet. Aurora’s a great guard dog – even though all she really wants is attention!—————————————-

After basting my quilt on the floor – we got all the blankets from the other room to build a fort! Kept them busy for a little while :)

Love the look on Owen’s face – it says it all!

It is basted together! I’m still undecided on how to quilt. . . it’s so linear I’m thinking curves . . . any suggestions?

And there’s a new quilt-along in the flickr group – come join us!

Emmalie’s response — “I guess we’re having lettuce for dinner!” She’s right, sadly this is one that the kids don’t eat yet, but they do eat raw spinach. Still can’t figure that one out!

6 : : To Do

Last week the girls and I sat down and made a list for them to do each day before they can play outside. It works! Having them help decide the chores and then able to check them off themselves, makes them want to do it :) And helps me out too!—————————————-
