Quilt Update

In the world of blogging, I'm small peanuts. After all, this is not my job, just a hobby and I do it because I like doing it.  "It" meaning both sewing (a little crafting) and blogging.  I enjoy reading other sewing blogs and getting ideas from them, so I thought maybe somebody might like to get some ideas from me... the point of blogging, right? I don't know why it still surprises me when I find that people are using my blog to make their own creations. But it does!

Reading the comments on Pinterest about things I've sewn could eat up several hours for me. Seriously addicting.  My husband says, isn't it weird that you and our kids are all over the internet for people to comment on? Maybe. But so far it's been a positive and encouraging experience. Could my kid's image be on a billboard in some foreign country selling something sleazy? Maybe. However, 99.9% of the feedback I've seen has been positive and seemingly helpful to fellow at-home sewers. Which brings me to the point of this post...

Remember the quilt I made for my nephew Levi?
Apparently it was pretty popular in blog-land and inspired a few to try it. Awesomeness!

I found Kelly on QuiltingBoard.com.  Check out her blocks!  Love these fabrics and everything looks so crisp. Last I asked, she was 22 blocks in. Can't wait to see the final product.

And then Michele emailed me her finished quilt.  She made this for her aunt's 80th birthday and hand quilted the whole thing! Love green and pink together and the green binding. Perfect meaningful gift for a person who has everything.

Thanks ladies for showing me your stuff and great job!  You actually inspired me to get going on my Summer Beach Quilt.  Yep, that one.  It's still in the works (and taking up a good chunk of my dining room table). Maybe it will inspire a few more.


  1. I love seeing my stuff on Pinterest! I'm always amazed that complete strangers find my stuff online and like it enough to share with others.

    1. I know, right?! There are comments on pinterest like "she made this in an afternoon". And I'm like... that's me! I'm the "she" they are talking about! haha Love Pinterest!

  2. You can add me to the list of people you've inspired :). Although I'm a whole lot slower than you....I'm on towel 2 still!

  3. you are too cute! I stumbled her from seeing your quilt for Levi on craftgawker (this and that one are both first time visits for me). But I love how simple your site is and how real you seem (at least in the 2 posts I read lol). Keep blogging, I think the world needs more real, simple bloggers - no 40 ads, no giveaways, being perfect and having tons of menus and lists - although we need some of those people otherwise people like me still wouldn't know anything lol.
