Stack n Whack is Quilted

Well I did it - I finished my Stack n Whack top annnnnnnd even finished quilting it. I know I won't get the binding on for a little bit. This part always slows me down! But here it is - I made it out of animal prints - and quilted it with Quilters Dream Puff batting - it is so soft and comfy and warm!!

I took this as a class at the Quilt Shop in Windsor - and the group I took it with made a reunion date. I am so glad we did that - it put pressure on to finish it before the next year (or two or three for those who know me)

Today was a basketball day - we played in Johnstown, and battled just a little bit of snow, but man am I snow shy. The second that snow started coming down I drove the vehicles to the highway and parked there - no more snowed in junk for this girl! I will hike the 1/2 mile to guarantee we are not stuck!!!

I like this quilt. It's very bright and the kaleidoscope blocks show well against the background.

That animal print made a great SNW. Congratulations on the finish.

Alycia, I love the Stack n Whack. How do you find time?!! The colors are great. Hopefully the snow is letting up out your way and you/your animals are staying warm!

I read this post and thought "I'm sure I read that she is a longarm quilter - why is she excited to actually get it quilted?". But then I suppose it is like the plumber who doesn't get time to fix his leaking taps?

I made a stack and whack and had so much fun doing so! Stop by and grab yourself a: A WAS HIGHLIGHTED button as your post was the oldest archive in the animal theme category! :)
