Since Olympic Soccer has started, I thought this little quilt would be an appropriate warm up for the binding marathon. I made this little 9x18 quilt last night for a friend who competes in the Highland games with my husband. This quilt is going to be used for a padding on his shoulder during the caber events.
There is a Highland game in our town Saturday. It will be nice that we don't have to travel far for this one!
A give away will be held by the end of the Olympics. I will get a picture of the prize soon. On Design Wall Monday there will be a sign up for the give away.

Simple living is a day where I post about how to keep things simple. Today I am posting about not overly complicating my long arm quilting. I have discovered a simple truth-less is more. I have applied this to my quilting style and piecing style and found that it really works.

a free quilt along. See button on side bar. Mario is next in this Super Mario Bros quilt. I love it. I made it without any foundation fabric or stabilizer. It turned out pretty good. My son will be thrilled.
I have just finished one week of staycation, see previous posts to check out what we did around the good state of Michigan and my home.
I am hosting a Binding Marathon that is taking place during the Olympics. I have four quilts ready with binding attached. I am long arming one right now and will have it ready for a total of 5. I will hand stitch the binding during the games and hope to get all five done! Want to join up? There will be linky parties and give aways!

I joined the Quilt along, see side bar for more info. I am not using any foundation fabrics. I am thrilled with how it turned out. Mario is next since I made a trip to the store to buy the right shade of red. I am making this quilt from scraps on hand, for the most part. Guess who is getting this quilt when it is done? ;)
