Finally Finished!

I finally finished the Owl Quilt.  I was joking that I would finish the quilt before her daughter turned 18.  Thankfully she just turned 3 months so I finished in good time!

Sorry the picture is a little wonky.  Overall it was an easy quilt.  If I did it over again I would do the applique's with freezer paper instead of fusible webbing. I think I must be kinda old school because I prefer the look of the freezer paper applique as well as hand quilting.  It took me about 3 months to hand quilt this, but I think it turned out great!

Is Quality Customer Service Dead?

Apparently if you're Ashley Furniture it is.  Take my advice DO NOT BUY FURNITURE FROM THEM!!! Let me tell you what you're in for if you do!

Our kids went to Phoenix to spend a few weeks with my parents for the summer. While they were gone we wanted to redo their rooms.  Our daughter really wanted a daybed, specifically a daybed from Ashley Furniture.  We've always thought that the Ashley Furniture salespeople were really pushy and have never really found anything that we like.  We came kinda close to buying a living room set a few months ago and I'm SO GLAD that we found a better set somewhere else!

Daybed as it looked in the store
Back in early June we went into the Ashley Furniture in Layton, UT and purchased the daybed and a matching media stand / dresser.  My husband paid for it and I don't think he noticed the NO REFUNDS - NO EXCHANGES - NO RETURNS down towards the bottom of the purchase slip he signed.  I certainly didn't notice, and if I had we would not purchased anything from them!!
