My Blog List
After the top was completed, it didn't take very much time to spray baste, and machine quilt it with really the only thing in my MQ aresenal, besides straight lines--wavy lines.
These Lucy's Crab Shack cruisers are my FAVORITE!! That's the part that the hub won't see 'til Christmas. I think he'll be happily surprised. Not only is he into biking and that's why I picked it, but I realized the other day after the quilt was done, my beach cruiser is orange, and he's the one who bought it for me. :)
After the quilting came the binding. Decided to go with some green dots that I happened to have just the right amount of. They fit in with the scrappy theme.
I did it all by machine so it would be sturdier.
And then it was done! I'm so happy to have these triangles done and not hanging over my head anymore!
When my hub saw this quilt in this book, he asked for one just like it:
For being all scraps, I think it turned out pretty close. Close enough anyway. Just don't look too close at the triangles. LOL Really.. I'm not at all anal about perfection, but some of them are sooo far off, it's slightly embarrassing. ;)
No one tall enough to hold it up for me to take a pic.. only person tall enough is forbidden to see the back. :)
Gonna wrap it up and hide it away until Christmas.
Now I've got to get to work on my trial block for the Jack Attack quilt-along. Along with that, this quilt, and the cushion with the pleats from you know where..
and worrying about whether my son is going to cry at drop-off..(oh yah, did I mention he decided to wait until two weeks into school to start crying at drop-off?), that's about it for what I've been thinking about.
Going to link up with Rebecca Lynne for Thursday Think Tank.

Your hubby won't care about the chopped off points. All he will see is the love that went into it. It is a fabulous, bright and happy quilt, made with love to give warmth and comfort to someone you love. The points are totally inconsequential. Give yourself a big pat on the back, and be happy for your accomplishment.
I think your quilt is beautiful! Certainly looks like the one in the book to me - and I'm sure it will to your hubby. And for triangle points - we don't need no stinkin' points! (That's from some old war movie - only I think he said bullets or tanks or something) Anyways. Congrats on a wonderful quilt! Oh, I almost forgot; I LOVE the binding fabric! I also like doing my binding by machine. So much quicker.
It looks fantastic! Thank you for the visit and the sweet comment at The Dedicated House. It means the world! Would love it if you would share this at my Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2012/09/make-it-pretty-monday-week-14.html Hope to see you at the bash!
