DSQ9

I finished my Doll Quilt Swap top this morning:


It's made up of linen and various shot cottons, and I love it-- so much that I don't want to give it away now. Cooper helped by busying himself with my scrap basket and then taking a good nap. I also love good naps!


I really wanted to get this done so that I can make the quilt sandwich tonight, then be ready for some on-the-road hand quilting. We're making our annual trek to Seattle to watch a bit of baseball. It used to be a solo trip for me. But then Rob joined me last year, and this time we're bringing the kids! I'm so excited.


You can bet I'll be eating a lot of this:


And I won't be cheering for the home team. Sorry, Mariners. My allegiance lies elsewhere.


Have a good rest of the week! I should have more quilty goodness to show when we get home. Go Red Sox!

What is it in that first food photo? I'm from Australia, and terribly curios. Popped over from the DQS on flickr. Suz

Susan, it's called a "Grand Slam." It's pulled chicken barbecue on top of a hot link. SO GOOD.

this quilt is so pretty. i can understand why you would not want to give it up. he is so sweet sitting there with your scraps. my son used to love playing in mine. i have pictures of him throwing them all over my living room with total abandon.

Cute quilt top! I do the same thing to occupy my littlest while I sew.

Enjoy your trip!

Great job on the doll quilt! It's for me, right?!?! ;-) I'm having the hardest time starting mine - I just can't decide!

The quilt is wonderful! The colors play against eachother so well. The layout is striking. I know it isn't for me but I would be happy if it came here!
So you are a Red Sox fan? That's my team (if I cared an ounce about baseball that is LOL).
