Is there room in the blog world for another quilting mom? I've been pouring over quilt blogs recently, gathering ideas and inspiration, so I decided to start my own. Besides I figured this would be a good place to record the quilts I've made and plan to make.
I've been sewing since I was a kid, and always kept my scraps thinking I could use them for something one day. I finally started quilting about a year ago when I traded some baby clothes for a quilt book on a forum I frequent. My first project was not a quilt, but a patchwork toddler-size pillow cover.
I love the scraps from different projects and how each one tells a story. The pink stars and yellow fairies came from a great little fabric shop in Hawaii, and were a favorite skirt for a while. The yellow gingham was intended for a crib bumper that never came to be. The fabulous Amy Butler Duck Egg French Wallpaper was leftover from making a baby carrier. This has gotten more crinkly and lovely with every washing.
