    My DH the Best!!!

    My DH has gotten me three more fat quarter bundles from Nancy's Notions! He never said a word, just went outside to work and sent me the order confirmation. LOL! He knows what I like and he's been doing really well! He got me 100 batiks all colors of the rainbow a while back and three other packs another time... Isn't he just the greatest?!

    I was trying to find a backing for a quilt I made in a class & really don't like. My granddaughter likes it, so I'm finishing it for her birthday. A friend & I went to the local fabric stores and looked around, but didn't see anything that caught our eye. I got a few fat quarters cheap & a bargain remnant for a quilt I'm trying to gather fabrics together for & my friend didn't find anything either. Plus the prices are going up again & a lot of fabric is now up around $12.00 a yard!! I found a suitable backing for the quilt this morning & it cost us almost $75.00 for 5 yards of fabric! I am hoping there's enough on there or I may have to border it with something else!

    Very nice - aren't those guys the best! I was having issues because my machine was getting serviced and I couldn't sew. I'd been thinking of getting a small Bernina to take to sewing classes/retreats, etc. I had to go to town and told my husband I was going to bring home a machine even if I had to buy a new one - all he said was "take your checkbook". I did bring home a Bernina 350. I'm so pleased to have it as a second machine!

    Congratulations on your new machine! I was working on a 12 lb., Brother HS-2000 which I love, but I needed a bigger throat area for doing my FMQ and DH helped me get my dream machine. A Laura Ashley, Innovis, NX-2000. I love everything about it!! It's a lot heavier machine but was worth all I went through to get it! I hope you love your Bernina as much as I do my Brothers. Happy quilting!

    Becky, you are very wrong twice! #1 I HAVE THE BEST HUSBAND EVER; #2 The brightness of your photoed quilt top adds a lot of really tenderness and beauty! I can see why your GD likes the quilt!!!! You do awsome work!

    My DH has been very supportive from day one...we'll married 48 years this year. I could just go on and on, but I love to hear about other DHs.....they are a pretty special group! Yes, Becky, your DH is a real keeper, and I also like the quilt, especially the way you used the colors and how those pieces stand out.

    I love the sampler pattern but don't think I am experienced enough to make one. Very nice.

    You know, I think we are all pretty lucky when it comes to our hubby's ... at least I see a lot more praising being done than I do complaining so that says a lot. On another note, my hubby is the best

    Love, love, love your quilt! The colors are just beautiful. My husband is also very supportive of my quilting. He likes to buy me gift cards to my LQS for my birthday and Christmas. He's definitely a keeper, too!

    This is my third try to tell you:

    Ooooooooooh, the shapes!!!!!!!!!! And the colors!!!!!! Ahhhhhhhh!

    Mommeee, I want one. Mommeeee, please? I promise I will eat my chocolate. Yes, I will!!!

    Nothing I could do would even come close to the artistry of yours, ma'am; but, if could try, I would be ecstatic. I am sure there are lots of other QBers who agree with me. Looking forward to hearing from you. Puleeeeze, with sugar on it?

    All the best from

    It is a Craftsy 2012 BOM quilt. Great instructions and you will learn so very much. Give it a try. I am making one for granddaughter. You can do it.

    Ok, are you willing to clone that dear husband or does he have a brother? Congratulations on choosing such a kind and generous man to spend you life with. You are a blessed woman.

    I really like the quilt and to me almost any color would work for the backing. but sometimes when we go shopping nothing hits us.
