Ain't no sandwich better than a quilty sandwich!

Beautiful day here in Pennsylvania!!  With all this rain recently, a rainless day is well appreciated!  I just finished pinning Crumb Patch and what a pain that was!  I just kept getting wrinkle after wrinkle on the back.  Grrrrr.  I unpinned, fixed it, and repinned.  It will be ready to go after Thursday.  I can't miss the finale of American Idol.  I really need to learn not to watch the preseason stuff.  I just keep watching then.  If I dont watch an episode I could care less what happens!  Oh well.

Anyway, here is some eye candy!  I finished pinning Crumb Patch and may have it done around Memorial Day some time, and I have 5 out of 7 rows completed of the string quilt.  For Crumb Patch, I used Warm and White batting.  I really am starting to like that for machine quilting.  The other batting I like to use is wool batting.  It really has a nice loft and is breathable too.  The Pineapple Blossom quilt shown earlier was quilted with wool batting.


  1. Not much longer and you will have a completed beauty!

  2. You are soo good at getting things finished!
    American idol we have given up - sorry but once Casey & Pia went we wondered WHO is voting (teeny bops?)James not getting into top 3 - oh come on!
    It seems if you belong to a big church or community you will win - more a popularity contest. Judges say same thing - miss Simon.

  3. Oh, cheery pictures! Way to go getting the Crumb Patch pinned - sorry you had to struggle, but now it is done and ready to be quilted :o) This beauty will be finished soon :o)
