Come join us in a Paper Piecing Challenge

Photobucket

If you are new to quilting, paper piecing is a great way to start, it is easy to follow and there are tons of patterns and “how to” videos and tutorials available online. Try http://www.sewhooked.org it is where I started, but beware, its addicting!

I will be participating in this and already have some great ideas!

First Two Completed Quilts Ever!

I gave my first two completed quilts ever yesterday to two soon to be parents of twins (a boy and a girl). The soon to be new father has been friends with my boyfriend for over 20 years.

They twins nursery has had a monkey mural painted in it, so what better than monkey quilts.

I just can’t believe I actually got them done on time. They are totally machine sewn and while I would have liked to have at least done some hand quilting, I just didn’t have the time. I had a couple of really really late nights making sure these were done in time for the shower.
