Saturday Oh Glorious Saturday

I had a wonderful day today. It was one of those quiet, no one needs me for anything kind of a day. The sun was shining and the birds were chirping. I got to sleep in and I don't have to weigh in until Monday! (The final weigh in) I went to Zumba, baked some muffins, cooked some squash to make into soup tomorrow, did some cleaning and filed some quilt paperwork. DH cleaned the family room and did a spot on job of it. Then we went to Dixboro to the General Store there and met up with our DD2. I got a new candle and some handmade candy canes. Then we drove to dinner with our DD2. It was a nice night. Now we are home and getting ready to watch the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I love that movie!

I wanted to share a quilt with you though before I go to watch the movie. Do you remember when I went to Grand Rapids and got to meet Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts fame? Well I finished a top and now the entire quilt is done. I really love how LTW quilted it so I thought I would share it before I send it on to Margaret's Hope Chest.

I had this fabric from some fabric sample cards and I thought it would be perfect for a boy's charity quilt. Actually another woman made one too but she used brown for the sashing where I used light gray. I really love this quilt. I had enough of the fabric squares such that I kept enough to make another top from it and left the rest with Carin to make another top. I'd say I got my use out of those samples, wouldn't you? Four quilts all together. I also have this same set of fabric in the red and blue colorway (also samples). I plan to make some more of these tops to donate too.

Ok so that catches you up with what's going on over here. I am going to throw some laundry in, pull some more things to file while watching the movie and just enjoy my time alone with my DH.

That quilt is so cute and love the quilting!! Hey do you watch "Glee"? If so, did you see their "Rocky Horror"? It was EXCELLENT and I think would've been a GREAT remake of the movie (if they'd only done the full version)! LOL

Sounds like you had a wonderful Saturday! Your charity quilt will make a young boy very happy.

I love the quilting on this! I'm finally getting around to quilting the version I made too so that I can get it in by that Dec 5 deadline. My homemade stippling isn't going to be quite as nice this quilting, though.
