Blame it on Jeanne



I finished sewing and quilting my bullseye quilt today. I am so happy with the out come I had to post a picture of it right off the longarm. As usual while working on the quilt I thought it was going to be a dud and I almost trashed the quilt. ( I would not have had any guilt as the fabric was given to me so no $ out of pocket.) I was not sure if I wanted to use my 50cent/yard fabric on the back and the batting that I just purchased. Was this going to be worth the small expense I would invest and the time to complete? I must say now that I am finished the answer is YES. I know this is not a prize winning quilt but it is so country and old looking that I just love it. Okay, enough now. Hope you all have a great Sunday. Oh yeah, the Oilers won. Yee Haw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it too! The small expense was definitely worth it - still makes me think of the 1950's :-)

Brilliant! - love those big blue polka dots they're sooo in your face - the whole thing just shouts FUN! well done for getting it doen so quickly - and I thought I was speedy. If you still can't live with it I'm sure any teenager who'd be in line for a comfort type charity quilt would love it
