first lets talk quilts. i love them! they have become my obsession. they are personal and made with love. they keep the ones i love warm. they give security and comfort. they will last forever creating so many memories. they bring me a different feeling of accomplishment than a skirt or tote bag. when i pull it out of the dryer and see the final outcome there is nothing like it. so puckered, soft and just lovely. i made these quilts for my girls for Christmas....
this one is made from a kelly mccaleb quilt kit. i love the colors and the vintage fabrics in this one.
another chinese coin quilt.
now dont judge me, i know this one is not perfect. it has an uneven
side and the binding is far from perfect, the mitered corners are even farther. but i do love it. i think flaws in quilts give them uniqueness and character. you can tell it was handmade, it isnt perfect and manufactured.
such a loverly site.
now that i am done with those, i think i am ready to start another!
i have been putting up scraps on my inspiration board for awhile. one here, one there. i am still trying to decide if i like the navy blue and deep yellow. i am thinking it could be a picnic quilt(since our picnic and park season is coming closer) or just a light throw. cant wait to get started on another one!
so lets end this with a giveaway!!!
