Would you believe I am still trying to figure out Blogger? Yes I Am! My main gripe tonight is that when I add my pictures, the text is supposed to wrap around the picture, but it’s not. Here, let me add this picture:
And Oh Wow, I learned something! See, I go and make a fool out of myself on my blog and all of the sudden it cooperates? Ok, forget all of that stuff I said up there. Let me talk about this quilt. This is my Easter quilt. I finished it I think around Christmas time. It is based on a pattern I found in the April 2010 American Patchwork & Quilting called Bunny Patch by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. I everything she designs. Here, let me try to get a closeup of that center… These pictures are TERRIBLE, I know. I need to get a new camera since the old one is, well, SHOT! I took these with my phone. Sorry….. Anyway, hopefully you can see them somewhat. So, I made this quilt and originally it was just the center part with the borders around that had the hearts in the corner. And that was it! I decided I wanted more quilt than that ….. so I started adding borders of my own. I added and I added and I added until I had a quilt that I could actually USE! I don’t hang quilts on walls. I put quilts on beds where they can keep you warm and make you feel like a princess all at the same time.
See, I even put some initials on the corners. Do you ever get creative with a pattern and kind of make it your own? If you do, please leave a comment and tell me about it.
Now, I’m going to change the topic. For today is my oldest son’s birthday and I want to take this opportunity to wish him a very very special and happy day. He is in the Air Force and stationed right now at Andrews Air Force Base in Washington, DC. I am very proud of him. Happy Birthday, Baby.
