And Another Thing...

While I was in Utah last weekend, I picked up the amazing quilt that Annzy helped with. You should see some of her other work. It's amazing. Like this, and this.

For me, she made the Drunk Love quilt again. I was going to make it, but I got stage fright and couldn't get it started. Annzy took it off my hands and put all the squares together for my Christmas present. Then she got the back for it and I paid to have it quilted at the Porn Wagon* where Annzy used to work.

Annzy didn't trust me to do the bias tape for the binding, so she pulled that together one evening and sewed on one side. Now all I have to do is finish the binding and it's all done. Isn't it amazing?


And I thought I'd leave you with a little more detail from the painting. This is the shiny white front door and the new switch plate cover on the light switch.
* NOTE: It's really called the Corn Wagon, but when Annzy first told me she got a job there, I thought she said Porn Wagon. I was very concerned about her new job. Then I found out there was nothing untoward involved and that she got discounts on cool quilting stuff. It's all good.

Yay Ann - it turned out beautifully. Noelle - it's de-lovely. I feel proud to have contributed the teensiest bit by squaring up some blocks at Christmastime.

I really like that light switch plate.

That quilt is making me cringe about over the clumsy baby quilt I just finished making. I really need friends who can sew for me. =)

Hurry up and finish the edges so I can snuzzle up with you up under our new "Drunken" quilt.

I am laughing out loud in my office at work, because I just did a double take with "Porn Wagon." I did not notice it the first time I looked at the quilt or this blog post, but noticed it this time.

I thought to myself.."NO WAY! A quilt store in Utah called Porn Wagon? That is an interesting take on an adult commentary!"

Funny! I shared the story with a coworker who use to live in Utah, and asked them if they had ever heard of "Porn Wagon" in Provo Utah. She said..."I Think So. I'm pretty sure it's a bar...right?" No I'm really chucking at work.

It looks great, I love it. Know I have to get up the nerve to make one. Oh, and I did end up buying the book!!!
