What I've Been Doing

Ok, well I had signed up to do the IHSW or International Hermitr & Stitch Weekend this past weekend. I didn't cross stitch but I did stitch together a quilt top for my nephew. Does that count? I don't know.

Anyway, this is the quilt I'm making. I bought the kit because these fabrics are just so cute! Here's the link to a free download of Beetle Boy.


So here's mine. I still have to stitch the beetle's legs. Then I have to layer, quilt, and bind it. I decided I wanted to do a red binding since I have to go buy fabric for the backing anyway. The kit has you use the same fabric as the outer border and I tend to like the binding to stand out a little.

I love the quilt!!!! My grandmother made me a quilt when I was a little girl and I treasure it. I never learned how to quilt myself.
