  1. Dumb founded

    by , 04-26-2012 at 03:43 AM
    Went to a small quilt shop by me looking for 108" wide backing. I have a pre-printed queen size quilt top and I was dumb founded to hear the woman helping me ask me ( how long will it take you to run that up on a machine?).
    Maybe I'm old fashioned, but to me you should do these by hand.

    The background of the butterfly is quilted with green thread to make the butterfly show up better.

    It took a long time because I was "helped" by 4 male black lab puppies I offered to foster for the local shelter. I got them when they were 3 1/2 weeks and they are now 12 weeks old.
