Finished a Quilt


I finished this quilt last weekend - and even got the binding on so I thought I would post a picture.

This was a mystery quilt and some of the ladies in my guild did it with me - somewhere in my camera are pictures of theres so I will dig in to find them too. The little guy on the left is my youngest son, and the just a tad older guy on the right is my Husband. They make great quilt holders.

And Yes this is a Quilt of Valor. I will get the other ladies quilts finished and we will send them in a groups to the hospital of Catherines choice. If you want to learn more about Quilts of Valor you can at http://www.qovf.org

Today it is very windy outside and many highways have been closed - so I have stayed in a sewed. I am almost finished with another top so will get it finished today I hope.

I was tagged by Carol to write 5 wierd things about me - but I don't think I am wierd - so asked my boys and hubby - heres what they came up with:

1. I have a bite mark on my back from where my brother bit me when we were about 4 and 6 - it made a deep scar and grew with me.

2. I don't particulary like being touched by a lot of people - it seems it is the "in thing" now to hug all the time and I usually find a way to hide.

3. I am still scared of the dark - and avoid it at all costs. I have 2 flashlights in my truck just in case. And I always do chores before it gets dark.

4. I have amazing hearing - I can hear the boys when they least expect it. Sometimes I can hear the wind you make as you are walking - freaky.

5. I am allergic to pain - and its even written down and highlighted on my dentists chart. Although I did manage to make it thru childbirth 3 times with no drugs - but never again! LOL

okay - that ought to tell you more about me than you ever wanted to know!!

Beautiful quilt - I know it is going to be greatly appreciated and cherished!

That is a beautiful quilt. How kind of you to quilt for this organization. As for your weird stuff, I too do not consider myself "weird". While you're afraid of the dark, I'm afraid of my imagination looking at the dark sky ;o). I'm not into group hugs either. I promise if we meet not to hug you! lol Keep well.

PS: I wanted to e-mail you regarding long arm quilting but noticed you have no contact info on your blog. Is there any way I can reach you? thanks

Great quilt and very handsome quilt holders.

I'm curious - how can you be allergic to pain?

I'm not keen on being touched by other people either unless they are family members or people I know extremely well.

Great quilt, Alycia! I am not a hugger either (unless it is my family), disliking all those touchy situations. Hope you are all dug out from all the snow - once it melts it should help with the drought, however.

Love your quilt! Got a big giggle when I clicked on the pick to see your ds standing on the couch.

I admit I am a big time hugger. But usually have to know you a little bit and also have a sense of those that don't like to be hugged and totally respect that!
