A night for BOOOS


I finished my Boo-quet. I am really happy with the outcome. I can not say I am happy with my photography skills. I took about 5 pictures and this is the best one. As you can see I didn't get the edges in the photo. It finished at 32.5 by 38. I trupunto'ed (I don't know if this is a word or if I spelled it right but quilters you know what I mean) the flowers, rat, and cat, left everything else as is. I think this is one of the projects I have made that I have had the most fun with. My motorcycle quilt (march 10th entry) and the Sex and the City quilt would probably be next in line. I am going to make another one like this. I already have a couple ideas floating around in my head, but like usual I have other things I need to get done first. Maybe that will be the push to complete those others obligations so I can get on with more of the fun stuff.
My other boo for the night, USC lost. What a shame. Not that they deserved to win, they did not play well at all, but it is just disappointing when the team you want to win looses. Oh well, it doesn't really affect my life at all, things will still go on, and it gives hubby and me something to talk about for the week.
Well, I am going to start working on the backing for my broken wings quilt. Now that I know I can get a quilt loaded on the longarm, I have decided that will be the next quilt to be done. Have a good evening. Dot.

We had a tragedy here tonight too...the Cubs lost and are out of the playoffs. Hubby is heartbroken!
Your quilt is very creative! I have not seen the 2 you mentioned. I will need to look in the archives for them.

It's great~ wonderful, whimsical and FUN! Is it hard to quilt long, straight crosshatching like that on your LA machine? Just wondering... You're off and running again! Life IS Good!

Sorry your team lost. I have a friend who is a huge Nebraska fan. He tapes the games and watches them over and over all week. If they lose, he's depressed all week. He's very strange - but then, he's a Nebraska fan. :-)

Love the quilt.

Way too cute! I enlarged it...and thought "oh that's my favorite on the piece." Then...it was "oh no, that would be my fave." And so...this has been going on now for a few minutes.... ;-)
