The second quilt for the Newton Child Development Center, cotton, machine pieced and quilted. 36x54".
With this quilt, I didn't use quilt as you go, but made the top first and then quilted it, just like a regular quilt. I love how it just fits my table exactly. The colors might be a little girly, but the first quilt was a little more boyish, so it's only fair.
This kind of sewing is so much fun, satisfying and stress free.
I have a new regime in my kitchen. I insist on being the only cook, which has greatly helped keep the counters and floors clean. It has taken a few days of training, but Dave is getting the idea that I am in charge and he belongs on the other side of the counter, to be served. He gets much healthier meals this way and the kitchen doesn't get out of hand as quickly.
