I *love* quilting & sewing. However, this is the part of quilting I strongly dislike.

Basting. I think I might actually prefer doing laundry than this!

25 yards of fabric

Do you know how long it takes to iron 25 yards of fabric on a standard size ironing board?

TOO long is the answer. Actually about 2 hours. But to me that's 2 hours too long!

Amazingly..... No body parts were burned in the process....

Yesterday my good friend Jennifer had her 2nd little boy, Jameson. All her hard work deserves a good gift of course!
Happy BIRTH day baby Jameson!

Cute onesie for Jameson- appliqued on tie

Onesie, burpcloth & changing pad

Quilted playmat- J is appliqued on.

Quilted playmat - ended up being about 36" X 36"


I made this playmat back in May, but the pictures were being held hostage on my husband's computer. bad husband.
Size is about 40" X 40" and is a simple polka dot with primary colors- I appliqued "JAKE" on vertically for an extra accent. Fun tip- salad bowls make great large circle templates :) I'll soon do a tutorial on applique!
