Production Line

I spent a very enjoyable day on Monday doing nothing but quilting.  Poor old Tillie has been sadly neglected lately but she performed perfectly for me and I got these three little strippy quilts done. 

Strippy Quilts 001

Strippy Quilts 004

Strippy Quilts 005 Molly had to check out the back to make sure my tension was perfect!

Strippy Quilts 007

I know a lot of people who are expecting this spring and although these quilts are so simple, they are what I call ‘happy quilts’ as they are bright and colourful and bring a smile to your face.  I used three different pantos on these – the first one was Sprung, the second Bubbles and the third Vibrance. 

Completely unrelated, I watched the movie “My Sister’s Keeper” last weekend and what a letdown.  I’m a big fan of Jodi Picoult’s books and this movie was based on one of them.  Talk about taking poetic license – they completely changed the ending of the book and for some reason it really infuriated me.  I’m so glad I had read the book before I saw the movie.

We have had absolutely gorgeous weather here all week – perfect weather for walking my baby – and we’re headed to the park right now.

So good to have a production inspector! I am dying to try a panto and may do it this weekend. I am going to load at least one quilt on the LA. This isn't one of those "I love it" quilts so practicing a panto might be a good idea!

What a great picture of your quilt inspector. Enjoy the warm weather! Nothing like a little sun to lift the spirits!

I have fabric here to make a strippie for Adam's baby (due in May) but first I need to get the wedding quilt bound and through the wedding next weekend.

Read the book, saw the movie and agree, glad I'd read the book first.

Sweet quilts!

My Sister's Keeper is the first one I read of Jodi Picoults. It made me cry which is why I never went to see the movie. Now I know I won't rent it either.
