just a thought....

Creating quilts is a way of expressing my creativity. I love the process of dreaming what a new project might look like once it is done and watching my vision come to reality.

more about mom's quilt

The quilt pictured in yesterday's post was actually a quilt kit that I ordered online. It is called hydrangea radiance and it is by Wilmington prints. I was browsing Mark Lipinski's Fabric Trends for quilters online when I came across this free quilt pattern download. I loved the way the quilt looked in the picture of the pattern download so I decided to order the quilt kit instead of searching for each of the fabrics on my own. I found that the cuts of the fabrics were generous. I have lots of leftover scraps. This is the first time I have done a kit. I enjoyed making the quilt and the directions were easy to follow. After I pieced the quilt together I sent it off to Sharon of the "Creative Quilting Company" in Lake Country, B.C. She did a fabulous job of longarm quilting my quilt.
