Dillon's Critters is Bound

I am calling this quilt Dillon's Critters because it is in honor of 4 yr. old Dillon and is made using the Critters charm pack my mom gave me for Christmas. Dillon is the little guy in my sidebar. He suffered an injury at birth that resulted in several disabilities. A local (to them) organization has an annual corvette-only car show, which includes an auction. Every year they choose a child to benefit from the event. This year it is Dillon.

This picture shows the front of the quilt. The inner border, binding, and backing are the same yellow print. The quilt is about 40" x 40". The charm squares finished are 4 1/2". I quilted it using a yellow that matched the backing. I did diagonal lines (X's) on the charm squares, stitched in the ditch around both edges of the inner border, and then 3 parallel lines in the outer border.

Back of the quilt shows the quilting really well.

While I was taking photos I found my summertime friends.

The back of my townhouse is a wasp magnet. This is my third summer here and probably my tenth wasp nest I've destroyed. Yep, I destroyed my friends' home :-).

Today I'm running to JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby to get printer fabric so I can make a label for Dillon's Critters. Other than that I'm going to work on organizing my sewing room and either start a new project or work on a UFO.

Love the quilt!

Just curious - when you destroy a nest do you knock it down? I've read (and experienced) that when the wasps see a net in a spot, they think it is occupied and won't build there - so I try to knock them out when they are small but usually leave the nest up. They are running out of spots to build! (most are in corners so you don't notice them much)
