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.
