This is my latest project. And what a booger it is!! I had to change my quilting design in the white squares...after I had quilted 6 of them! I started with circle feathers. Small one in the center and a larger one with only the feather leaves on the inside. I learned that if you can't make a precise circle and you only have the leaves on the inside your eye is drawn to the lopsided circle. I ended up filling the square with more feather leaves. It seems to take away from the once dominant uneven circle. I used a template to draw it perfectly, I just can't run the machine over the line perfectly!! I have so much to learn!

Today was one of those great, busy, busy Fridays. I bought the fabric for a baby quilt. It was supposed to match some Nauticakids accessories. I did my best. Anyway, got the fabric, sewed it up, quilted and bound it! All that is left is to put the label on. What do you think Tina? Also, I dyed some shoes today to match my dress for the upcoming wedding. They did great! I just have to spray them with something before I wear them so I don't have blue feet. And, I sent the email out for the shower plans, sent the last two pics to my brother for the wedding DVD, and cooked a good dinner for Jim and I. Roast with carrots, potatoes, onions, celery, green beans, and pineapple angel food cake for dessert. I love to cook almost as much as I love to quilt.
