long Arm

I finally had my Long Arm machine class! This is what I quilted..

Ava's quilt. It's from the book ...I'm drawing a blank and as usual, I'm going to be late getting the girls to the babysitter if I don't hurry this up. Corinnea, if you remember the name of the book, will you say so in the comments?
I know I look very round in this photo (like an apple). I'm totally aware of how unflattering it is but it's my 1st quilt on the long arm machine. It has to be documented!! I told Jon the photos of me were bad (not your fault Leah! Soooooo not your fault!) and he said, that's weird because I remember you looking good that day! How sweet is that? ahhhhhh:) Does he want something??

Choosing the thread.


Random photos of the girls. The snow has completely melted now.




just to show my quilt hanging in the store. I love it!


Thanks everyone for the nice comments about my blogiversary. I feel loved:)

Finally a new post, I was starting to have withdrawals. Corinnea – It’s been a while for you to.

I love the finished quilt. You did an awesome job, no surprise. I knew you would be a natural. Oh, and you don’t look like an apple! You look hot!

Love the pictures of the girls. I think you should end a post every time with a picture of the girls.

The quilt looks great! It's wonderful that you finally got to take the class, about time, really. What will you quilt next?

And I agree with Mary, I think you look great in that picture.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ava's quilt. It is so pretty. We have taken patching Sierra's fish blanket because she refuses to give it up AND it is getting wear hole in it (not to be confused with wereholes, which is a whole different type of hole :) They are scary and only come out at the full moon...Ok back on subject. You don't look bad in the picture. In fact you look very happy to be using the machine. The pictures of the girls are, as always, beautiful.

I love the quilt, the pattern you did with the long arm around Ava's name is so creative. And, of course, the girls are adorable. Love the 'top of the head ponytail'!!!!!

I know the answer to the question!!! It's Winsome Baby by Nancy Halvorsen.

Your quilt is so beautiful! I knew it would be.

I agree with Mary, I think you look hot! Hot and crafty....

The girls are so funny. I love moments like that.
