Hi ... my name is Colleen and I am a wife and mother living under the sun in San Diego, California. I have one son and one daughter and three dogs ... My furry children. I created this blog so I can ... well, what else? Talk about quilting ... and the other things most important in my life ... family and friends!

Quilting and quilting ...
Hello, hello. Been a busy week, so I have been fighting for my quiling time. I'm working on my stash sample for April's class's, so trying to fit it all in. Just finished this beauty ...
Such a pretty quilt ... This was our stash class pattern from a couple months ago. Love it!
Just did a close loopy loop .. Simple and will look pretty when it's washed and all puckery!
Do you see there is no room at the end of this? Whew! I would like to say I did a great job and look how it worked out perfectly ... Except I would be lying to you!! I was about 2 " short on the backing. I must have mismeasured ... Not sure how it happened, but I pulled it off the frame, cut some extra fabric from the sides, seamed it together and sewed it on the bottom. I just had enough! This is a friend of mine's quilt, and the backing was pieced already, so I don't think she will mind. That very rarely happens, but it is the pits when it does! ... oops, I forgot to take a pic of the entire quilt. I will add that tomorrow.
