    I was going to show you...

    I was going to show you some pictures of the Underground Railroad Sampler bed runner now that it has been quilted, bound, and washed. My son jumped in the way though...



    I did manage to get a couple other pictures without him though...

    Here is a pic showing the bed runner on top of the quilted comforter that Mrs. HandsomeRyan bought after I refused to make a king sized quilt. I did make the curtains though using this fabric. I know quilting fabric isn't the same as curtain fabric but we loved the print and I can always re-do them if they deteriorate from the sunlight.

    Oh, and you can sort of see a little stuffed camel poking out between the pillows on the bed. That is Lawrence. I got him for my wife when her belly started to pop to congratulate her on her hump when little man started pushing her belly out. More about that here.

    The room is simply too small to get a good "overall" picture but here is my best attempt.


    And this would be incomplete without the embroidery help of Ginny [GinnyKNC]

    (this picture was taken pre-quilting and pre-binding)

          This is really pretty! Your first picture gave me a laugh! I LOVE your bed quilt! The quilting is gorgeous and I love how it is a whole-cloth quilt!

            The doctors say Feb. 27 but every time they measure his size, estimate his weight, or measure mom's belly we are 2 weeks ahead of where the doctors say we are. We think Valentines Day baby.

              Very very nice and kudos to our Ginny for being so swell! I agree with Lorie - Sawyer is quite a looker. And so is Tabitha. She carries herself very well. And while we are in a complimentary mood, you ain't half bad yourself.

                Very stylish! The sampler bedrunner too.

                I've been thinking about making curtains of quilting fabric but haven't found the Perfect Fabric yet. I got excellent advise here on how to line them! Might help with the sun issue.

                  February 27 is an excellent day! It is the birthdate of my youngest grand boy, Ashtyn, who turns eight next month!

                          The runner is beautiful! Your son has such a cute rounded head (or is that the butt?). Either way, it's a beautiful family. Very happy for the three of you.

                            The bump and table runner are both beautiful, Ryan. I distinctly remember standing at my cutting table and trying to see what I was doing without the bump getting in the way. Was nearly 10 years ago now, but I can still remember it well.
                            So glad things are going well for all 3 of you!!

                              So nice, Ryan! Love the bedrunner. You guys are good!!! Tabatha looks adorable, too. Can't wait to meet the Little Man, Sawyer. He is going to have the best of both of you!!
