A Beautiful Quilt

I bet with all of these QOV's you probably didn't know that I quilt for Customers too... its actually our bread and butter - literally... you try feeding these boys!! Anyways I asked my customer Dianne if I could share her quilt on my blog. I truly think I want to be her when I grow up! The quilts that she has sent me are the most fabulous colors and designs.
This one came and all my boys thought she had made it for me - as it was defineatly my colors and styles. But alas - she thought her niece needed it - go figure!! It is a wonderful quilt and stitched so well! It was a dream to quilt.
Today was a field trip to the Denver Aquarium for the 3rd graders - so I was a chaperone. I had my son and 3 other children. It was a blast. I told them they had to learn at least 3 interesting facts during our tour - and they did well. Madison told me that Jelly Fish have been around for at least 600 million years. Alex told me that tiger sharks can grow to 11 feet long and weigh 350 pounds... which is at least twice my size ( what a charmer huh LOL) he meant Height ( I am 5'10"), Brooke saw that Colorado Cutthroat trout were the only native trout to Colorado, and Kordell told me that there are only 400 tigers like they have there in the whole world.... I can't remember the type of tiger! I made them remember all this stuff and here I failed....
Oh and I touched a Sting Ray - that had his stinger removed. They are slimy!!
Have a quilty day! Enjoy!!

Thanks for the kind words!

What Alycia modestly doesn't say is that she suggested the perfect pantograph and picked beautiful threads to improve the quilt immeasurably. I was thrilled when I got it back!
