Charlie's quilt


I finished Charlie's quilt tonight. I machine quilted this one, but I'm not sure I'm going to try that again until I get some better skills. The front looks pretty good, but the back has a lot of tucks and puckers.


I fell for this fabric because of the dots and stripes at first. But then I saw the fishes' names were Malcolm, Swimmy, Bjorn, Andrew, Robert, and Goldie. The fabric is also really soft. I'm glad to have this one off my list, I've been working on it for about 2 years! (On and off, of course.)

Hey Leigh,

I was wondering if you'd get offended if I changed your name on our blog to 'She who must not be named' not that your the dark lord or anything, if not, how about just 'Leigh' or better yet 'Anonymous Family Member #1'!
Wish you guys lived closer too.

I love the fishes nams and it turned out cute! Do you have a walking foot on your machine? That makes the machine quilting way easier? I am impressed at how diligent you have ben at finishing your projects I think Ijust gave allmine away (the blessings of a missin call!) I still have two quilts Ibrought with me that I have barely touched what was I thinking!!!
