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!

Tip of the day!

I was just reminded of this in a comment in a previous blog post. 

 Vintage bed sheets make the BEST quilts! And they are SO cheap :).

You can find them at garage/yard sales and online at Etsy and Ebay, consignment stores, thrift stores, and Goodwill. I once found a bed sheet at a thrift store for $3!!!! And, it was a FULL size sheet! I thought I had died and gone to heaven :).

Lord knows, I LOVE a bargin, and there is no better bargain than something with history, originality, and quality.

Happy Quilting!
