Octopus Quilt

I got busy on the octopus quilt. The little boys showed up as I was cutting out the octopus. I won't even try to spell the way Greg pronounced octopus. lol Aiden stood in a chair so he could see what was going on. Greg asked me "what doin', GranGran?" I replied "making a mess". Greg threw his hands to his face and run off screaming "GranGran is making a mess." lol I bet that boy can't keep a secret. :)

Saturday morning all I had to do was sandwich, baste and quilt. I put everything away at 3:30 pm and the quilt went into the washer. I was so pleased to be finished.

Barb's pattern is easy follow and I love the way she did the designs. My quilt is not exactly like Barb's because I made a cutting error and then I had to correct it. This link will take you to Barb's patterns that are for sell. I hope Barb will design more.

I took lots of photos I wanted everyone to see the details.







I think Chelsi will like it.

Happy quilting!!

I remember that pattern...it's a cute one and Barb had asked me to proofread it for her before she printed it and make suggestions (which I did). Cute story about your little Greg's reaction to your "mess". :)
