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!

Pretty Pinwheels



 I've been working on these pretties lately! They're wonky pinwheels! I saw these on a quilt top and was so intrigued!

The main print is Make Life by Sweetwater for Moda, and the backround is Bella Solids in White. In the shop, the quilt top showed each 'blade' of the pinwheel the same color. But, I don't much like playing by the rules, so I made up my own! :). That's the beauty of quilting, you make your own rules!

The awesome, lovely, most generous shop owner taught me the trick of the 'wonky-ness', and it's easy-peasy!

I will be posting a tutorial for the wonky pinwheel soon, so stay tuned!
