My Quilting Blog

This blog is strictly an ode to my love of quilting! The plan is to post pictures of my quilts and other things quilty that I find worthy of sharing. (Plus I need a non-private blog so I can participate in the Bloggers Quilt Festival! ;) Since I'm an on and off blogger...we'll see how this goes.

And so...here are a few pictures of my latest quilt...



This is actually one of two almost identical quilts I made so I could re-decorate my kiddos room--one for my 2 year old and one for new baby girl--due in 3 weeks. I may post a picture of the other one later--it is still on the quilting machine awaiting the 20 minutes it will probably take to finish. The inspiration for this quilt came from Ashley at filminthefridge.com...that chick is amazing! I love her stripey quilts, and when I saw the one she made with the California Dreamin' fabrics I knew I had to make one! Plus, I had been collecting pink and orange and brown fabric for about 4 months, but no quilts were getting done because I couldn't decide on a pattern! This was seriously the easiest quilt I have ever made. It took me less than a day to plot and piece each one. It's amazing how fast I can finish a quilt if I can just pick a pattern and get going on it!





And of course...the quilting was the funnest part :)
