Finished Blanket

I can't believe I never posted this...goes to show how much I really blog!  I'd love to much more often but truth is, I get so caught up in researching different topics that I forget! 

Well, here's my big girly's blanket that she'd asked for for almost 2 years..and I'm HAPPY with it!  Notice the free motion quilting (I taught myself with each stitch!  Thanks to the internet)  I drew the flowers and swirls with a fabric pen then just stitched through!  IT WAS SO MUCH FUN, I really felt like an artist but with a sewing machine! ha!!

My next sewing machine will have a LONGER ARM
(hoping that's sooner than later)

Sing for me little bird!
Free motion quilting!  Amazing FUN!
