Ohmigosh. I started this blog one year ago today. Amazing! Wanna see what I’ve been working on lately?
Oh. Here – let me clean up a bit first…. *Itsy takes a deep breath and blows the dust off her blog page*
Cough, cough. Where was I? Oh yeah! It’s been awhile since my last post. *blush* I have ever so many
excuses reasons for that…my sociology and astronomy classes, World of Warcraft, my addiction to e-books, chatting with friends, my addiction to e-books (did I already say that??)….
My youngest had a birthday in October. A few weeks before his birthday, he informed me that his toes stuck out the bottom of all his quilts! Not good! A new quilt was definitely needed! He loves Marvel’s Super Hero Squad, so that was an obvious choice for theme. We shopped around and ended up with 8 or 9 different fabrics. Click any of the photos for a bigger version.
I chose to keep it simple – 88 squares of fabric. It ended up being a decent size – it will be awhile before he grows out of it. 😉
It won’t win any quilting awards, but his reaction was all the reward I need.
The backing is flannel, so it will keep his toes (and the rest of him) nice and cozy all night long. 🙂
Now that the quilt is done, I have to concentrate on school for a while. Research papers, exams, presentations…all my favorite kinds of things to do (not)!! But, they must be done. Gotta keep my grades up, ya know. Four weeks left, then I can play. Yippee!!!!!!
