I am expecting my daughter Kelli to come home today….she is supposed to come to quilt this.
I was going to surprise her and have it all in the machine for her. I got up at 5am hurrying have it loaded in the machine and to get a few things done before she got here. I got it loaded. Then I thought I would surprise her by filling the bobbins too….then I thought, I’ll start quilting it for her….then I thought wouldn’t she be surprised if I quilted the whole thing? This was going great…I was getting out of my housework. I’d just have her help me with that being she would have a finished quilt. All was going great until I ran out of thread….UGH! I’m only about 1/4 of the way finished.
Kelli is making this quilt for a wedding present. It’s a disappearing nine patch design using Sandy Gervais fabric lines, Candy Kisses mixed with Flutter. I am just free motion quilting hearts and loops….it’s one of the quickest, easiest designs and perfect for a wedding present.
Now I have to call Kelli and tell her to purchase thread before she comes home….so much for my big surprise….little surprises are nice though…and now I am back to housework…UGH! It was fun while it lasted….

Isn’t that always the way it goes? The quilt looks great – sorry you had to go back to housework – quilting is so much more fun! My mom is coming to visit next week from Florida and will be staying in my sewing room – so the quilting will stop at my house for a week. Oh well, time to pull out the knitting . . .
But sweet intentions!
I still love you mom! And it was a great surprise that you did it all for me!!!!
