Spumoni Finished!

Hey Guys!

For the record, I actually finished this quilt last Wednesday with my Janome.  Quilting it on the Janome, which would only fill half a spool at a time was like forcing a 10 year old to eat liver and lima beans, but I did it!  This was the first quilt I made for a person that I wanted to keep for myself… it is sooo pretty!  Here are the pictures:

I had to take frequent breaks because of Hello Kitty.

Washed and folded.  I love how the quilt looks after it is washed.

So guys, what you think?  I think this is my prettiest quilt yet!  With that said I am already working on another one.  I still have pictures to show you of two I am in the process of making and my shame for still not completing my friends baby quilt.   I have to finish that quilt! I will post more tonight maybe?  I am linking up to Plum and June for Let’s Get Acquainted Monday and Quilt Story.   If you are visiting from there please comment!  I love comments and finding new blog to read and be inspired by!

Until next time, Sew Pretty!

If you want to see more of the project quilting submission you can go here.  There will be a drawing tonight…hopefully I will win something if not….maybe next time!

On to other business!

I have a confession… I am behind on my sewing.  I wonder how many of you are saying….I knew THAT would happen!  What can I say, if anything I dream BIG.  Tomorrow, I will be planning out what I WILL get done before the end of the month.  I also have updated my year of finishes and I am up to SIX!  How cool is that!

I will be linking up this post to Plum and June for Let’s Get Acquainted Monday, Quilt Story for Fabric Tuesday and Better Off Thread for Sew Cute Tuesday.  If you are visiting from there please comment!  I love comments! ;0) That is all for now… until next time, Sew Pretty!
