thanks so much for the kind words on my boys' quilts. i have to laugh at all of you who think that their bedroom is always that clean. that is CERTAINLY not the case. i had to do a bit (ha!) of cleaning before snapping the photos. ahem.
i finished my wee play quilt top last night and i made the backing. you know how "they" recommend cutting your backing and your batting at least 4" larger than your quilt top? my thoughts are: why waste that much batting/backing? well, it certainly works better than my method of (inadvertently) making the backing smaller that the quilt top. um, yeah, don't do that. that's what happened on this quilt. i still don't know how it happened, but i basted it anyway and i'm going to try to squeak by. i'll let you know how it goes. i have my seam ripper standing by.
one more thing...i haven't bought ANY fabric for 58 days. i don't know how much longer i can make it. (i mean, have you seen this fabric? it comes in brown, too! and these dots in any color are so very fantastic!)
