And now, a word from my non-sponsor...
Ever since I started making quilts, I have used the blue painter's tape for basting. You know, taping the back onto the floor then poking a gazillion pins in the top to keep all the layers together.
Well I have recently been quite um...unhappy... with the results. It *may* have had something to do with the fact that I paid like 4 cents for a roll of the blue stuff. But NOW! Now GREEN is the new blue. I found some Frog Tape (quite spendy) but it worked like a charm.
Especially if you're using it on chenille, flannel, or right infront of the AC vent where the air just keeps blowing the tape to smitherines. I heart Frog Tape. Now if I could just get paid for that little bit...
So I started the usage train with my own baby perched atop.
I just love this color combination. So unexpected (for me!). Very bright and happy.
I feel like these are the kinds of quilts that make sewing and quilting cool. Because, you know, some people think it's not.
Some might think I take too many pictures of my baby on quilts.
Including the baby.
But isn't that what babies are for?
Taking close-ups of adorable wrist-rolls and tiny toes?
