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...
