Sunny Saturday!

The sun is shining (rare for MI) and the birds are chirping, and 2 hours of torture exercise is done. I am all showered and ready to begin my day at noon o'clock! Oh what the heck, why not blog to begin the day off right? For your viewing pleasure I present my first totallly finished quilt of 2010?

My Dragon Lone Star for DD1 for Christmas (yes she had it, but it was not bound at that time)

Dragon LS 01
LTW did a great job on the quilting. There is another Chinese dragon inside each of the dragon diamonds but it is terribly difficult to see since the print is so busy.
Center of Dragon LS
I think I showed some of the quilting once before but I don't think I showed the quilting on the inside corner, so here ya go.

Somewhat less impressive is the pieced back. In hind sight I should have used all purple instead of the busy fabric so the quilting would have shown up better, but at the time my thought was to use up all that dragon fabric so I would not have to use it in anything else (plus I didn't have any more of the purple!)
Back of Dragon LS
I am pretty sure DH and I will go out shopping for goodies for the Superbowl tomorrow and I need food for the week too. I weighed in at the Weight Loss Challenge and was down, but the official weigh in is at WW on Monday. I was kind of excited when I weighed naked yesterday morning because I was so close to breaking a BIG number. Not so today, but I am holding out hope that Monday will be successful, LOL

You forgot to say anything about the breeze. It's a little nippy out because of it. Thank God for the sun. Anyway, the quilt is beautiful. No sewing going on here. And congrats on going to the gym today.

LOVE that quilt Pam, it's stunning! You did a magnificent job on this. And so did LTW!

Wasn't the sunshine nice today? John's crazy bread didn't turn out very well, but he's going to try again tomorrow for the super bowl. Be good tomorrow and I hope that big number shows up Monday!!!!!

It really looks great! I love your reasoning for using up all of the fabric on the back. Overall, I think it was a great choice ;)
