Don't let the bedbugs bite!

This past weekend was really icky out--grey, rainy (more like monsoon-y) and really windy--perfect for doing some sewing!

As some background, my dear friend Deb's sister-in-law, Stacey, is expecting in August and she asked me to make her a baby quilt. The fabric she picked out for the baby's room is the bug fabric and I added the rest.
I had some company while I was working.
This little mourning dove kept sitting on the ledge outside my window, cooing up a storm, all afternoon. I think love is in the air given the rather...umm...excited....cooing coming from the bushes the other weekend.

Anyhoo, here's the front. There will be a red binding as the border and bug fabric as the back when I put it all together.
Abi's impressed.

Do we have our first post from someone anonymous?

Love the quilt. Who knew bedbugs could be so cute. The linen is perfect and the stamping is the finishing touch!

On my way to do some stash augmentation.

love the bugs.
what kind of ink do you use to stamp on fabric? i'm sure you've said before but i forget. is it staz-on??

It's fabric paint that I put on a damp sponge to use as an ink pad. I make sure to use ones that say they're soft, so that the letters don't feel hard.

I tried posting a comment that was going to include our web address the other day, but my computer wouldn't let me. It may be some sort of block on my work computer.

but yes, I think we should!
