I'm quilting, I'm quilting (say it like the Wicked Witch who is melting in the Wizard of Oz)...

For years, I have harbored a secret love.
Not many knew.
Finally, I succumbed...
Jo-Ann's had an awesome sale one day
on the fabric of my dreams
50% off plus a 10% off coupon!!!
Does it get any better????
Anyway, I decided to make a new bedspread for myself.
The first picture is the the top of my new bedspread
(and is made from "the fabric of my dreams").

The second picture is the back of my new bedspread.
I cut 7 or 8 different fabrics
into 2.5" by 10" strips and sewed them together.

TOP of my soon to be new bedspread
BACK of my soon to be new bedspread.
When it's all sewn together,
I'm going to take the top, the back, and the batting
to a woman who will machine quilt it.
Yay for long arm quilting!
Boo, for the expense!
Oh well, it will be worth it.

Then I get to bind it by hand!!

Don't worry,
I'll add more photos when it's done.
