New Monitor #2

What a pain. We got the other monitor and then when it was all up and going there was a spot on it about dime size. So we had to take it down and get a different one.

So here is the quilt I have been working of the past couple of months. Finally done. I read somewhere that there is nothing better than folding a finished quilt, I did feel relief if nothing else. It turned out pretty good, it was the first one I have quilted on my machine. I just love all the colors.





Now I just have to finish a baby quilt for my new niece Emma. She was born a couple of weeks ago, so I have plenty of time to finish it.

First of all, I guess we didn't tell eachother we had blogs! So, here I am thanks to Kimi! Haha! I LOVE that quilt! I have been wanting to make one like that, but I don't have the patience to get all the material! It was great seeing you a couple of weeks ago!

I love it Mandy! How big is the quilt? I've only tried quilting on my machine once and it was a miserable failure. I always figured I just needed a bigger machine, but if you did that...

I really love the color wheel. It's awesome, Mandy.

I found the quilt in a craft book and it is about 56x56. Not quite as big as I would like it to be, but I will just have to be careful from now on. It certainly is not perfect, but it was just a straight stitch, which I am sure is easier than a turny one.
