    The crazy quilt is finally finished!

    It's in the washer right now. For me, no quilt is really finished until it comes out of the dryer in one piece. I'm hoping that it comes out real crinkly. I've posted pics in previous posts.

    It's a quilt of firsts; First use of poly thread, first time quilting with embroidery machine, first time incorporating embroidery in a block like this. The amount of knowledge I gained from this is amazing and I feel like I'm so much more fluent with the machine.

    The sad thing is that my family thinks it is so ugly..........all I see is brightness and fun and achievement. It's going in my room so it doesn't matter I guess.

    This is the third quilt I've finished this year so far. I hope I can keep the momentum going. Next up is a quilt that DD has asked me to make using the Old Mill Path pattern. That has curved seams, and that'll be a first for me too. DD was here for the holiday and we picked out thread colors and batting. She wants minimal shrinkage, so I'm going to use poly thread again and quilter's dream Orient batting. Fingers are crossed. I'll start it in the next couple of days.

      I know you're thrilled. I always love it when I finish a quilt for 'me'.

                It is bright and cheery. Are you sure you want it on your bed, it might keep you awake.
