Trip Around the World

Well, I have some good news! I FINISHED the Trip Around the World quilt tonight :D

I got it back from getting it quilted last week. I went ahead and finished the binding today and it is ready to mail to my cousin now. I am so excited! It turned out beautifully. I had the quilter do a "puzzle" pattern on it in green thread.


Also this weekend I worked on my Shepherd's Bush ornament, I finished Wisemen Came. I now have 4 done, only 2 more to go.


I helped Katrina finish a few of her exchanges last week, she was so sweet and sent me this chart and kitted it up for me, to say thank you. Well, thank you Katrina, you are wonderful! :D



Today was a quiet day, church was really nice, and we had a good dinner. We took some silly pictures for fun too!

I don't know much of anything about quilting, so I hope this doesn't sounded totally stupid, but what did you mean by "got it back from getting it quilted"? Weren't you quilting it?

Anyway, I love it. If I look at the whole picture very long it sort of does that Magic Eye thing. :)

Heather, that quilt is SOOOO beautiful. I love how your family was holding it over the railing for the picture. Can I bring my quilts over and photograph them that way? I LOVED the pictures of your kids and family. How cute! Jesse was so sweet to share with Kayla today at church.

I love that quilt and it's in my favorite colors...so you have my address right? :)

You have the sweetest pictures posted, here...first I love all the heads peeping over the quilt and then the one with all of you on the floor...how sweet!!! You all have the blue-est eyes too! My family and I all have blonde and light colored eyes but while mine are a darker blue, my husbands are green and my kids are like grey-blue...weird! :)
You have a beautiful family Heather, I'm sure you're proud :)
