Project Quilting part 2 WIP: Song Title


Here's my Project Quilting second quilt.  The "theme" this time around is "Song Title".  When I saw this Sunday, I immediately thought of Jimmy Buffet's "Cheeseburger in Paradise".  My husband is a huge Jimmy Buffet fan (parrot-head).  We probably have every CD he's ever come out with, and they get played regularly, although there are a few that got somewhat "censored" when our kids came along.  It also occurred to me that while I have been making relatives birthday cards since this Spring, I never made my husband one for his December birthday.  So this one's for him!  It's only 7 1/2 by 10 inches, making it a very small quilt (and yes, it does have batting in it).  I figure he can hang it up at work, or anywhere else he wants. 

Right now, though I'm trying to decide if I should quilt on top of the burger and tree leaves.  My machine started acting up a bit, so I took a bit of a break today, but hope to get it done tonight or tomorrow.  I'd love to hear your thoughts.

I also got this beauty in the mail today!  It's a postcard from Cheryl from our "Year of the Dragon" postcard swap! I just love the colors she picked!  I can't decide what's more fun... making these postcards, or getting them...

That bun might like some sesame seeds. :)

Very cute idea!

Ahhhh.... cute.... I used to live in Paradise! A little burg in CA. Everytime I'd hear that song... I agree the bun could use some seeds, and the lettuce some texture. The dragon is cute!

Oh my gosh- that's hilariously cute! You could always stitch around the bun to outline it, but I have no idea what top stitching to actually do on it. Good luck!
