I'm back!

and ready to release some artistic frustration!  I gave my notice at work last week, so I will soon be "funemployed" for a while as I hunt for a job that better fits my career goals.  I'm hoping to get back into quilting during this time!  A cousin and a few close friends are pregnant, so I have a few baby quilts to whip up, and my sister is getting married next summer, so I want to get to work on a wedding quilt. I cracked open a box of fabric last night and started pressing.  I'm going to…

Quilting fever

Last summer I got quilting fever and was on a roll, knocking out a bunch of quilts through the spring.  I've kind of gotten over it now.  This always happens to me with crafts.  I turn into a maniac for a while and can't put the needles, the hook, or the sewing machine down, but then eventually I get worn out and leave unfinished projects in my wake.  I have a few UFOs that I would really love to get done, but I have absolutely no desire to sit at my machine right now.  I really need to…

Quilt Love

I just got back from a trip home to Boston.  While there I gave my best friend Addie a quilt for her 24th birthday.  She was ecstatic!  She kept going on about how it was the best present ever, and how no quilt could ever say "Addie" as much as the quilt I made her did.  I chose her favorite colors and lots of fabric with polka dots, which she loves.  Her boyfriend's mom is a quilter, and she has apparently been dropping hints that she wanted one of her own.  I had no idea!  I beat her to…

Baby Quilts

I went home to Boston last week and saw some of the baby quilts I have made for friends and family for the first time since I gifted them.  They looked so different from when I gave them to them, but I loved it!  It felt so good to see the colors a little faded from constant washing, use and love and the fabric all broken in and soft.  Made me want to make more baby quilts!  My sister has commissioned a few baby quilts for me to make for her friends with kids, and we took a trip to Joanne's…

Scrap Therapy

I just took a great book out of the library the other day.  It's a Scrap Therapy book by Joan Ford called Cut the Scraps! There are some great tips for organizing your stash and beautiful patterns for turning left over fabrics into new, warm, works of art! I personally can't wait to make "Something Fishy" and "Bloomin Steps".
