The Rules Of Quilting:
1. Don't bleed on the quilt
2. 'Close enough' IS a term of measurement
3. It's not a mistake, it's a creative opportunity
4. A messy house is the sign of a happy Quilter
Well this happy little quilt is the 'Care Bear Quilt' (I am aware that the names of my quilts suck). Anyhow this silly quilt sent me for a little trip right at the beginning. I started to iron the care bear fabric and thought I saw something flash... Well I shrugged that off, thinking it must be my 'lovely' children playing yet another prank on mom. But as I continued along the task of ironing out a huge unmanageable amount of happy happy fabric I was even more convinced that I had unknowingly ingested narcotics. Alas it was not true, turns out if you iron glow-in-the-dark fabric it flashes the same kind of green that kryptonite does. Well kryptonite or not the quilt went together fairly easily after that. the pieced boarder was the first that I have ever one, but it was no big deal in the end.
So I quilted it with a swirly cloud kind of design and tada it's over... or is it. When I mentioned I had ironed a whole butt ton of this fabric I wasn't kidding, now I have to make another one. Oh well the kids like them, and everyone in Dawson Creek appears to be breeding right now anyhow.
Well that is all for now, since we moved on Easter Long it took a while to get the internet and telephone hooked up again (it was quite peaceful). But I'm back and will post again next week.
