I’m so easily distracted

I went searching for a panel quilt to try a cute thing from the Pajama Quilter DVD, Dawn attaches small beanie babies or stuffed animals onto the quilt top with the longarm (she even sent me some to try).

Instead of a panel I found this old UFO, a strippie top that Mom had pieced but didn’t really like so she gave it to me to finish – a long time ago. I decided it would be perfect for this dragonfly. So I loaded the top and quilted it and after watching the section on the DVD on attaching them, I’m going to give it a shot.

And isn’t this little lizard just perfect for the fabric I already had pulled for another one of my quick donation quilts.

    Welcome home! You jumped right in on your return and this is adorable.

  • Norma:

    I don’t believe it–stuffed animals quilted to the surface of quilts! What a clever idea!

  • Deb:

    Can’t wait to see how this goes! If it’s not too hard to do, I may have to try this one.

  • Laurie:

    Mary – are the animals removable, or are they permanently attached to the quilt? The dragonfly quilt is darling. I like the fabric you have selected for the lizard. I also like the Spiderweb quilt. It is really pschycodelic (I wonder if I spelled that correctly. It has been a long time since I have seen it in print). Glad you are back.

    Welcome Home Mary – I’m sure you had a wonderful time with Deb, but it’s always good to be home.
    I’m thinking I haven’t watched all the DVD, cause I don’t remember that part either. DH set it up for me and said, It’s ready to watch!
