What started on Memorial Day weekend as a "gee I think I would like to try quilting again" turned into a full blown love affair with quilting over the summer. First up was the red and aqua table runner that confirmed that "yes indeed, I think I like quilting".
Becky then asked if I would make her a quilt, which led to the purchase of the adorable Daydream fabric and the San Francisco Windows quilt top. Progress on this quilt was interrupted by the quilt along at P.S. I Quilt and three weeks later the completion of the Americana Cottage quilt. And winning a fabric gift card for participating! Quilting is becoming a part of my daily routine.
I added a blog list devoted to my favorite quilting blogs. And I finished Becky's super cute quilt ♥
Which led to the destruction of not one, but two sewing machines. So I tried hand quilting. I fell in love with Perle cotton and making hexagons.
Finally, I pulled out squares that were abandoned during my fall fling with knitting. I started cutting hundreds more 4" squares out of fabric in my stash. I added a dose of clean crisp white fabric and started stitching together Happy Little Quilt. It is true love.
Three quilts, one table runner and one pillow later, summer is now almost over and I cannot wait to cozy up with my colorful, happy projects!
