A Quilt and a Card




Wow! Who knew it would take me 3 months to actually post to this blog. I am really in the mood to sew and get my hands on some yummy fabric. I decided to share a quilt I made back in 2003 before my daughter was born. It now hangs on my son's bedroom wall. It has some *personality* if you will. LOL! I see lots of things I would have done differently, but I can't change it now. I *think* the fabric is from Moda, but I can't remember exactly. I am sorry for not having a source. I also added a card that I made today using the new Hen image from The Saltbox Studio. I absolutely love it. I designed this card from a quilt I saw on a Windham Fabrics magazine ad. I loved it. I pulled out some of my Old School pattern paper from 1999 etc. It just goes to show that you never know when you are going to need some of that older stuff! LOL!

I love your flannel quilt, it is so beautiful! I am going to try and make one - I can sew a straight line (sometimes), but I will try even if I have to make it by hand!! I just joined this Blog and am really enjoying it. Thanks for sharing.
