Quilting along

I was talking to my friend Charissa this week. Charissa and I talk a few times a week, about quilting, stitching, husbands, house cleaning… we are soul-sisters. I love her. Well, I was saying how I could not get myself motivated to quilt Jessie’s second quilt, that it seemed to exhausting. She told me to just start it, and go from there. Well, I started and 3 hours later (in between cleaning, dinner and laundry) it was done! Thanks Charissa, for giving me that push. I had to text her to tell her I actually did it, she gave me the return text that I am awesome. I love that! Good friends are amazing aren’t they? Now I want to get another quilt done. The pretty quilt made from my Shangri-La fabrics. This one remember? I had finished this top in October. I have the backing, which I need to piece. Wish me luck :D
Enjoy your Sunday, the weather here has been so nice, I'm going to go and enjoy it now :)

Three hours to quilt a whole quilt. That was fast going. Was it on a domestic machine?

Jessie's quilt turned out so beautifully! I'm so impressed with the quilting. (Do I use the word "impressed" in every comment I make on your blog? I really, really AM! You amaze me with all you accomplish. Ah, to have the energy of youth again...)

A great quilt. And so quickly done, amazing.
I love the pictures where your kids are standing upstairs and holding the quilt.

wow. it's completely gorgeous!

i just found your blog this morning while doing an image search and I just love all your quilting!

I'm wondering if you would mind if I share your husband's skateboard ramp on my blog sometime? (giverslog.com) you have such amazing things here!

It's good when friends can give us that push we need to get something finished :o) This turned out beautiful! You have done a fabulous job, and I'm amazed it only took you three hours to quilt it! Looking forward to seeing the Shangri-La quilt quilted!
