Let the quilting begin!

I woke up yesterday morning ready to get started quilting the Zoo Animal quilt. Laid the backing down, then the batting and finally the top. Oops something didn’t look right. 😦 Because the top grew I was short ALOT on the backing. Thank goodness I hadn’t cut the batting to short. So I did what any quilter would do, I started quilting Bunny Dreams.  I’m very pleased with how much I got quilted on the bunny quilt. I outlined around the bunnies and the carrots and kinda sorta stitched in the ditch. I’m sure I will finish it today hopefully (crosses fingers) will at least get started on the binding. I’m using a different type of Warm & Natural, I think it was called Warm & Natural Lite White. It is very thin and it quilts so nicely. I really like it for the baby quilts because it is so light weight. Some of the quilts I made for Nikolas are very heavy and a baby don’t need that. Then when I needed a break I went back to Hobby Lobby for more backing. They didn’t have any more so I got moon and stars that matched. DD liked it so I do too.

Last night while watching TV I worked on the shawl. I’m so loving making this shawl, I’m already dreaming of the next one I will make. 😀  I want to take a photo of the yarn in natural light today hopefully the grey will turn to the right shade of green.

Happy quilting!
