I finished an I Spy quilt for great grandson, Ryan. Now I don't feel that he is neglected by my sending girly stuff all the time, lol. I made it as a ticker tape quilt. The backing and middle were both flannel, and the front cotton. I hung the backing on the wall, used spray baste and placed the middle, more spray baste and put on the front. Then as I cut out the pieces, I spray basted them onto the front. I didn't want to wrangle the quilt on my Bernina as I was afraid all the pieces might come off, so I put the quilt on my frame. I just connected the top and let the rest hang over the bar and did a free motion circle twice around each piece. It went pretty fast and I'm pleased with how it came out.
I washed it and all the pieces stayed intact and just a little fraying. I think he will like it!! I was surprised at how heavy it is from using all the flannel.
Now, a little brag about my son. He is all grown, but he is still my little boy, lol. Anyway, he got a grant for research and received this letter from his congressman in California. COOL!!
He is a fine man.
Not much else going on. It's starting to get hot here, which will be nice for the holiday weekend. Just wish we had more family nearby so we could have a cookout. Sigh. Maybe someday....
