Welcome to my blog! I started sewing about a year and a half ago and have been learning ever since!
I have always been a creative girl, I love color and texture, but had never really sewn much of anything except a straight line until one day, when I was at my friend Ann-Marie's house. We have been scrapbooking buddies for years and she is also a quilter. I always loved everything she made but had never had a desire to do it myself. So anyways, I was admiring a few of her latest quilt projects when literally, all of the sudden I wanted to do this! I wanted to make quilts! It hit me like a bolt out of the blue and I have been hooked ever since! I started searching online for sewing blogs and tutorials and went to town!
For my entry, I chose this little quilt in blue and green. The pattern is called "Alice" by Red Pepper Quilts. This quilt is small, but it makes me happy every time I look at it. The colors are so me, and the
mix of log cabin and 4 square blocks with so many different fabrics just make me happy!
This year has been a tough one for our family. A lot of things going on that were out of my control and very stressful. And what I found was that when I immersed myself in the creation of quilt blocks and fabric selection and that, coupled with the rhythm of my sewing machine, gave me a sense of calmness and order in my hectic life - a way to escape if only for a few hours. I love my new found passion and look forward to seeing everyone's beautiful submissions this year! Thanks for visiting my little corner of the blogosphere! :)
