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.

Home sewn receiving baby blankets

One of my favorite things to sew are receiving blankets. I use one meter of fabric for each blanket. I round the corners off. Then I use my serger to go all the way around. I made these three blankets tonight for a baby gift for my friend. I' m so excited for her!
Here she is all wrapped up in one of the blankets. So sweet don't you think?

I have just completed a little project called "Spring petals quilt along". It is pictured below on my coffee table.
I have enjoyed experimenting with applique. I free motion quilted it on my sewing machine.

May update

It's been quite some time since I have posted anything.

I completed the "Community Quilt" that I wrote about. I have donated it to the Crescent Quilters group who will donate it to a local care home. Here is a picture of the nearly completed quilt. I finished off the binding at the quilting meeting.
Here is a picture of the back.
I quilted it on my sewing machine.

It felt good to finish up the project. I still have many other unfinished projects I am working on. I will post pictures of them soon!
