I'm In!

Updated 4:05

Kelly is having a party! Sounds like fun so I'm going to sign up. I need things like this to motivate me sometimes. And Tumbling Dino's is only half quilted.
Can I interest you in some cookies?
Are you sure?? They're chewy oatmeal. Nummy Yummy.

Ok I've had one or two and am ready. I've got my peppermint tea and this is on the machine.
Oops that would be the back. And you can tell it's my table because there's a cereal container in the background and placemats on the table lol.

Tumbling Dino is ready to be quilted. I only have until noon when Little Bit will be home and I have to get her ready for gymnastics.

The gloves are on or off if you want make a thing about it ;)

So ready, set...quilt!

Doesn't look much different does it? I'm hoping even though the back isn't cotton it will crinkle up some.

A close up.
Maybe the back will show you?
Much better lol. Which is funny because once it's washed a few times this will show way less because most of the little fuzzy fibers will work their way out from under the stitching.

 I have to decide on what to do with the borders now.

UPDATE 4:10pm
I've quilted around the center, under the rick rac, and have these to show for today's work.
Today I've been interrupted several times and it doesn't look like it's getting any better lol. I think this may be as far as I get today. Not too bad, about 4 hours at the machine.

Thanks for the cookie. It was quite tasty - at least virtually it was.

Those gloves look very interesting!
