Hello and welcome to my blog, if you are visiting for the first time. When Beth, from Plum and June, asked me to participate in her Let's Get Aquainted! weekly link party, I immediately said yes! I've known Beth for awhile now, and I have always enjoyed her sewing aesthetic - improv, wonky, and lots of stitching!
I began sewing when my son, Owen, was born. I taught myself how to use my mom's sewing machine, and I have not looked back since. You can read more about me and my blog here. I did not start quilting regularly until October of 2012. My first quilt was for my son, which I made last year in April. My second quilt was made 6 months later and then the quilting started like wildfire. I just completed my ninth quilt recently, which I get to share later this week. But here's a sneak peek.
I am currently quilting this commissioned piece for an old high school friend. When I think of our high school days together, making a quilt for her baby would have been the last thing I would have ever thought I'd do for her. Let's just say home economics was not my thing.
I wish I had more sewing things to share today, but my time has been focused on Creating with the Stars, an online DIY contest I am in. I swear. Sometimes, I feel like I should be Martha Stewart's daughter.
Instead, I am going to share with you some quilting cottons I am looking forward to adding to my stash.
First on my list is Sarah Watson's Indian Summer, which comes in two colorways. I found out about Sarah Watson awhile back when I bought her adorable hanging plants embroidery pattern. Still need to embroider that . . .

Anna Marie Horner's Field Study in LINEN. Still not a fan of the leopard prints though.

And lastly, Neon by Michael Miller.
