About Me

My photo
I'm just a new wife who has an obsession with my sewing machine! In Oct. 2010, my mother and I created my first sewing project - Euro pillow shams. I was hooked! I read everything I could get my hands on that had to do with sewing! Books, magazines, online tutorials. I experimented and found that I get so much enjoyment from making quilts, and that it's where I found my niche. I'm still a beginner, but I've learned so much in just 5 short months, that I want to share it with someone!

Finding things online

I found this site today. You can select from bazillions (okay, maybe not that much, but a lot!) of quilt blocks, design colors, and even get tutorials on how to piece the blocks. You can then order the entire 'order' where they show you how much fabric you'll need, how big you need to cut each piece, etc. It's an awesome find.

I designed a pattern from this site today. I am beginning to look at fabrics for a quilt like Follow the Yellow Brick Road, but big enough for a full-size bed, with shams. It gave me a much better visual of how much fabric I will need and how big I will have to cut the fabric. This is a great tool!

I would also like to direct your attention over to Crafty Gemini. She is the lady who is responsible for getting me going on my sewing obsession! I used her tutorial to learn how to make my first sewing project, my euro shams. She is SO talented, she has dozens of tutorials on awesome projects, and she does it all at no cost to you. 

To end the day on a cute note, here is a picture of my dog, Sam. Since my husband and I don't have children, Sam is my furry baby. He is totally cool.
