Free motion victory!

After more than a few arguments with my machine (Bessie doesn't like the heat, it turns out), this beauty is finally complete! I've never been brave enough to free motion quilt fleece, but I think this turned out pretty well! The pattern differences correspond to the fabrics...I circled around the animals and the "I love Mommy I love Daddy" phrases, but the rest was just stippling.
Poor lighting, but you get the idea.
See, pattern differences.
Ahh, natural light.
And, of course, the artsy shot. Ish. Whatever, it's got sunlight on it, that makes it artsy.

I just need a name for this one other than "Jen's quilt" which is what I've been calling it. Thoughts?

Still alive

New glasses! And part of an apron I'm working on for a wedding gift. 3 quilts in various stages of "the works" and a couple small projects here and there fit in between work, classes, and observation hours. Busy busy life I love. :)
