And what about that Mega Millions Lottery we did not win??? My son heard that we had a better chance of getting struck by lightning 500 times or being born a conjoined twin than we did winning that lottery. But a girl's got to try!
Speaking of being born....
|Jaxen Kenneth Cullum -March 23rd,2012|
This week I worked on a baby quilt. Brady(my cousin) and Amy Cullum had their first baby, a little boy, on March 23rd,2012. They named him Jaxen Kenneth. This was a very special day as it was my mom's birthday and Amy's birthday. She was hoping to have it on her birthday and she got her wish!
I had purchased this set of panels last year, on our 1st annual Montana Shophop in 2011. It's called Newton All Year for Clothworks. Aren't they cute?

I added some applique for his name down one side and stitched it with the blanket stitch.
For the label on the back I drew out one of the little birds from the panel and appliqued it and stitched the label. I definately need to work on my freehand writing with my machine!! That is some bad freestyle writing!
This quilt was small enough so I quilted it on my own machine. I stretched it and used 505 spray to hold it together. For small projects, I think it works great!

So with it quilted AND bound I will get it in the mail to the new baby this week!! Not bad timeline.... the baby will only be 2 weeks old! Not like I had 9 months to get to this or anything!
Doesn't it just make you want to go to the beach??
Not so WARM but very sunny skies,
