The pictures aren't the best because I think we're getting ready to have a thunderstorm. I love when it rains in the summer! Have a great weekend!

Doll Quilt Finished
Oh, how I loved all your poop stories. I am happy to report no more pooping instances have propped up. Thank goodness. I finally finished my first doll quilt in my quest for a wall of quilts. It's really small, but I do love it. I'm glad that it is all mine and that I don't have to swap it!! I hand quilted it, which was an experience. The stitches are long and uneven, but I kind of like it like that. I don't know how the Amish do it so neat and perfectly. I suppose practice makes perfect. I also used Heather Bailey's tutorial for quilt binding and it is brilliant! It is written so clearly and couldn't be easier. I didn't take a picture of the back of the quilt, mostly because I forgot, and partially because it is not too pretty to look at. The backing is from the same fabric as the binding. Now that I have a lot of 5" squares I see many more doll quilts in my future!
