Often people look at me sideways when they find out I blog about quilting. (Ever experienced this?) However, I must say that my decision to start blogging has been the most rewarding experience. Why? The quilty friends, of course.
Yesterday I came home exhausted and over Wednesday only to find a package waiting for me from Renee at Sparrow Lane Quilts. (Seriously, if you’ve never visited her, go check out her finished quilts!) She sent me a wall hanging that she made for a tutorial on her blog (go check out the huge Lonestar she made – I’m obsessed!)
Having her think of me and take the time to send me a note and an inspirational gift truly made my day, (ok, my week!) Renee, thanks for being such a great friend! I will love having this in my quilting room! This is going to inspire me to try FMQ over and over again to be more like you 🙂
I also finished my 2nd baby quilt this week! Oh, hey, check me out! My husband is mailing this off today to baby Bear. His mother was my saving grace when we both taught in DC. I’m so excited that she is the recipient of one of my first quilts – she and I spent so much time together making centers for our kids, finding deals, writing grants, eating Chipotle, and swapping stories to keep us sane!
Finished Quilt Stats:
- 32 inches x 40 inches
- Bella by Lotta Jansdotter
- Quilted by ME on my Bernina 215
In other friendly news, this summer I’m participating in Plum and June’s New Blogger Blog Hop! Make sure you check out the bloggers that are up this week – they’ve all prepared enjoyable reads for you! I was up last week, and I have had the most fun meeting new bloggers and getting funny emails.
