New Beginnings...........An Ending........

I have decided to start a new project. It will be a trip around the world, the pattern is at Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Custom Quilting. I can not link to this today as blogger will not let me just link with one word. Once I link everything after that is linked also. Sorry about that. I saw on her site where one women had super sized the quilt to queen so that is what I am going to do. I have come to the conclusion my husband like scrappy quilts so I plan to use this one on the bed therefor it will be scrappy. I went through my fabric and cut one 2.5 inch strip from 108 different fabrics. I sewed the length of the width of the fabric, so that means I will have two matching 36 patch blocks. That will be okay. It will work out fine. I could make my pattern different by starting my first strip with a different fabric square, which I might do, even though I did not do that on my first two blocks. I hope you undertstood all that rambling. All will turn out great.
This is the final picture of the quilt I made over the fouth of July week-end. I had posted a pictue of just the completed top. This is a picture of the completed quilt. I used muslin on the back and quilted it with some sort of mock feather/flower pattern. I can't remember the pattern name off the top of my head and am to lazy to go get the info to post.

I will be to busy this week-end to post, we have alot of family activity going on. I hope all have a great week-end and I look forward to seeing what everyone is up to. Good Day.

I can see where you headed

and on the link thing? you probably forget to put in the anchor tag backward carat, back slash, a and then forward carat would be guess. The thing did not know where to stop---try it again sometime and see?

Bonnie's trip around the world quilt is really pretty. I was thinking about making one of those too. I wound up doing a normal one this time though.
