Hehehehehe!!!!!

hehehehehe!!! What is this big yellow thing you ask!!!! My Christmas present from my mom!!! Yep! The UPS messed up and delivered it to my house instead of mom's! It is a 30yard roll of quilt batting!!!! I am soooooooooo excited, 90 feet of quilt batting!!!!!!!! Does she love me or what?????? Just think of all of the quilt tops I can quilt now!!!!!! I can see my pile of 70 quilt tops going down!!!!


Here is another applique block that I did for the Summer Pond quilt. I am really liking this quilt. I have most of the other blocks done with the applique on them. It seems to be going fairly quick. I am out of Wonder Under and I have a few more blocks to cut out so I will try to pick that up in a few days.


Also, my friend, Lisa and I are going to do a two-colored quilt! I made block for mine the other day. I decided to do red and white. I have several red and white quilts and when we get moved in the house, I would love to display them together. This pattern is called "Gibblets", it is a version of the Chicken and Gizzards pattern. I really like this one and it goes together very quick.


I have been working on my applique blocks today and I hope to have all of the ones that I have ready appliqued by the time I get to pick up more Wonder Under, that way, I will just have a few more to complete. I had a dentist appointment today so that sort of messed my day up but tomorrow, I will be home all day. Hopefully, I can get some sewing in.

You sure will need that roll of batting with all those quilts and many more. Good present. I've never gotten into applique. Took couple of classes but didn't take right off with it. I like the twocolored idea.
