Here I go again ...

Guess what I'm doing next

And as a last ditch thought I'm not sure what I wanted to quilt here 
I always amazed at the simplest of quilting sometimes is the best I wasn't sure but I like the swirls 

Alright you guessed a new metro hoops my husband liked the baby size so much I decided to do .yes..a huge one for our bed
The fabric is jellyroll pedal pusher and just basic moda white scarlet for the corner squares
I was afraid I might not like the dark corner squares but I think I do !and I'm sitting here thinking of next years raffle quilt prolly something brighter than this years but a traditional pattern

That's all tonight my post got all mixed up but you get it

No quilting this week

Iberostar grand
                                                  Mexico second time around

Although I have to admit by day 3 
I start getting a little antsy I really have a hard time just laying around
And start missing this face
This is all basted and ready if I only knew how to quilt it
I have my stained glass quilt all unpicked and ready to start quilting again
I hated the quilting I had done and threw it in a pile in the closet��
I am going to just straight line quilt it with some variegated thread
