Quick N Dirty Baby!!!(well kinda...)Yay.
D found an update for the printer software so now I'm compatable enough to be able to download NEW PICS and be Bloggin for ya!!(who loves ya?)
So......remember the plaids in the washing machine pic??
Well they have been put together into what I would call a "Utility Quilt" top and are now as I type, being quilted.( Well I'll get back to quilting it in a minute!! First I must update!)
When I say "Utility Quilt" I'm thinking of "usedbythefamilyanddog havingpizzainthebasementwiththeneighborhoodkidswashedweekly" kind of quilt.
And this one would stand up to it...these are more of a canvas type weight fabrics..pretty darn sturdy. When it gets quilted up with the batting and backing on it they are also heavier than the usual.
The blocks in the pic are soooooo big ( I'll tell ya how big!) that I have to advance the rollers on my machine back and forth to get to each end(on the diagonal)
in one contiuous line.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about just trust me on this one.
LARGE 22inches square LARGE.
Anyhoo....this should go fairly quickly...... hopefully cause I've got lots to do
today!!(UPDATE Got 'Er DONE!!! see above pic.......)
But before I go........I must mention a couple of things!!
