While Shaun White was doing THIS....
The Birdies are done!!! I got the fabric for this quilt almost a year ago and FINALLY finished it. I have started and stopped and started and stopped, but finally I got the incentive to complete this project about a month ago. My Aunt Tami asked me to make and donate a quilt to A Pink Night To Remember--a dinner and auction to help raise money for Breast Cancer. I thought that if I was going to donate something it better be good, for one. AND it better be special. This quilt represented the best quilting I can do at this time. It was my FIRST attempt at machine applique. My FIRST attempt at small grid quilting on a large quilt. AND my first attempt at sewing my binding on using my machine (not by hand). SOOOO long story short I was thinking about how in the BIBLE, when people were to make a TRUE sacrifice, they gave up their best. WELL I don't have sheep, but this is the best I have to give:) I am sad to see it go, but hope it raises some money for Breast Cancer!!!
The backing is my most favorite part. It is FLANNEL--can it get any better than that????? FLANNEL BIRDIES:) YUM!!!
By the way Marcie--once you machine bind---YOU WILL NEVER GO BACK!!! Seriously changed my life tonight. I did a little zig zag just to spice things up a bit:)
Bye Bye Birdies♥ *sniff sniff*♥
