This is a lap-size quilt (64x64) for my aunt. It is made with quilting cotton scraps on top, the batting is fleece, and the back is muslin. It was quilted with simple straight lines on my DSM.
Washed a dark piece of material on low load, then tossed another load in. Mid cycle totally quit. Was hoping to get another month or 2 out of my washer. It is about 14 years but just wanted to finish this one. Will just have to hand rinse then toss into dryer. Guess I should be grateful DH says we will get new tomorrow. He hates Laundromats worse than I do. If anyone were to ask me which appliance I would do without, the answer would not be my washer and dryer. I can cook anything on the BBQ pit

My granddaughter has asked me to make her a Lion King quilt for her birthday (like the one I made for her cousin 10 years ago, LOL!). I found a panel on ebay but I can't seem to find anything else to go with it. Anyone have any LK fabric or panels in their stash that they would like to sell?
I am wanting to make the Dear Jane quilt several of us are going to work on it together for the next year and I am wondering if anyone have the book and the CD that they would like to sell at a reasonable price.

Decorate clothing, household goods, totes and bags? DH keeps telling me I need an embroidery machine, but I'm really not sure it would get that much use. Pics of all your handiwork are greatly appreciated! :-)

Wow, you did a great job! How long did it take you? Your niece will LOVE it forever.

Fold the top square from the top right to the bottom left just to the stitching line. I actually did these on the ironing board so I could press them as I folded each one.
After getting back from a great trip to Phoenix(loved the 35th Ave Sewing/Vacumn store--the one on 35th Av! Tons of fabrics and the folks at 3 Dudes were so nice and friendly) realized I have so much to get done before mid-May. So really hustled and had the customer graduation T-shirt quilt put together--just need to finish backing and put on the frame. I also got the 2 grandboys play mates quilted and now need to get the bias binding (they are circular) done for Easter. Have 29"corn heat/cold"packs
