2010 Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be entering Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival for the first time! Amy's blog is only one of 2 I actually read every day! She is so creative & awesome! It's so great that she organizes this festival. Basically everyone shares a quilt & what it means to them & what they learned while doing it.

Mine has to be the quilt I made my mom from my grandma's clothes. :)


Mamaw passed away in January 2005. I held onto her dresses for a long time, unwilling to cut into them. Finally in 2009 I bit the bullet. I got a glass of wine & laid out all her dresses to get started.


I had some help along the way!


Obviously the quilt is very special because Mamaw was my mom's mom & played a huge part in all our lives. My sisters & I used to spend the night at their house on weekend & they let us make mud pies & drink lots of Yoohoos. I gave this to my mom at Christmas last year & she loved it.


That's my most special quilt! I have more fabric left from Mamaw's dresses & I plan to make a quilt for myself & my sister. I have no time frame though. I'm now a mom of 2 boys & own a wedding planning business so my time is limited!

Enjoy the rest of the quilts!

I entered a quilt giveaway!

We quilters hardly ever make quilts for ourselves. I haven't yet, that's for sure! So I entered a quilt giveaway on Craftopotamus! Check out her beautiful quilt. I WANT IT!

Hello out there! I need to get this going again!

Long time, no blog! I am getting back into my quilting hobby after having baby Jake! Here's the latest picture of him! He's almost 4 months old!

So....apparently anyone who's anyone in quilting has a blog, so I've got to get on this! I don't know anything about having a cool-looking blog, so bear with me!

I'm going to participate in Amy's Creative Side's One Thing One Week Challenge.

Here's my mom enjoying her quilt!

She loved it! She had it in her lap for only about 5 minutes before she took it to her bedroom so none of the grandkids got anything on them. :)
