This is not a good picture but I am finally finished with the t-shirt quilt I have been making for a customer. I have been working on it off and on of since Feb., I think. I finally got it all together last week, put it on the machine on Sunday and just finished quilting it tonight. What a nightmare!! Even though I used interfacing on every shirt there was a lot of shifting. Seems I had to tweak every row. I think I should have used a large meander instead of trying to use a pattern and quilting it from the back of the machine. It is really big. 99x96. Now to get the binding done. I will never do this again!!!

Home Again

I'm back from CA. I had a wonderful time meeting my new grand daughter and catching up with Dylan.

Neal, Monika and the kids just moved into their first house. They have remodeled the kitchen - it's almost done - very pretty. I think the yard will be there next project. Dylan is loving his yard. They had lived in an apartment so Dylan hadn't had a yard before now.

Did a lot of shopping, got to visit with Sylvia and visited a nature park with Monika and Dylan.

Of course I have tons of stuff to catch up on here. Customer quilts are waiting and then there is always the yard. My flowers on my front porch got toasted while I was away so they have to be re planted.

I will post pictures of my grand kids as well as the finished baby quilt later.
