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!

New Beginnings!

I went to the fabric store today. I love the smell of the cotton on the bolt racks :). 

I bought the fabrics for a quilt I am starting for my aunt. I am so honored that she asked me :). I am by no means a professional, but she trusts my skills enough to have me make a bed quilt for her! How awesome is that?! 


After about two hours at the store, deliberating, and much advisement from the owners, I decided on these colors. Oh, good gracious, I reeeallyyy like them! 


The white is a lot less crisp, and more of an off-white. I think it brings a lot of softness to the whole scheme. And the floral print gives it an unexpected punch! I am so excited to get started! 

I am doing the same rail fence pattern that I did for Follow the Yellow Brick Road, but I'm thinking a little more 'grown-up' looking. It's for a full-size bed, so I think the rail fence will be an awesome pattern!

I would love to hear about your new projects, future projects, and what you have in the works!

Happy quilting!
