KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, BUT IT DOESN'T MAKE MY BLOW DRYER RUN!

I am sure everyone is so tired of hearing about how hot it is by now. I stayed in the house all day Thursday and Friday finishing up this quilt. It is for my son Colin's 30th birthday (Jenny make sure he does not read this!). His birth was the most memorable of all my kids because I had him 30 minutes after I got to the hospital. I think he will like this and it looks rather masculine.
I spent about 8 hours quilting it and I am happy with the way it turned out. The lines are very ORGANIC which stands for I can't quilt a straight line!!!
Here is a shot of the back, I forgot to take a picture of the pieced back. I really like the texture and have a tip for you if you are doing straight lines. You have to rotate it for each line of quilting. In other words, quilt top to bottom and them bottom to top, then top to bottom and so on. If you don't it will get all weird on you.
This is what our poor little Snoboy had to deal with yesterday. My husband worked out in it until 4:30 so I can't really complain. One of the best things about this weather is this....
Our first tomato of the year....don't you love the smell of the tomato leaves on your hands when you are picking them? I love it.
