I guess I have a confession to make...
Even though I sell quilting fabrics, and work with them almost daily... I have never personally made a quilt. There it is... it is out in the open for the whole world to know.
My aunt is an absolutely fantastic quilter and would love nothing more than to pass on her passion for the "much patience required" past time. I have long since admired her work, as well as other talented quilters, and am almost blown away and sometime left breathless... especially when I look at some of the incredible art quilts out there because I can at least recognize and appreciate the time that it took to make them. But I have to admit that I am a "let's get it done", "don't bore me with the little details" kind of a girl, which could explain having never picked up the art before.
I know since our announcement of the "pitter-patter" of little feet on the way, you must have expected to see some upcoming baby projects... me too! It is like I have itching fingers to get started, but without the "green light" to get going.. because during the last ultrasound some little one did not want to cooperate with us. (must be a trait from "daddy"... hee, hee) I am finding it quite difficult to sew gender neutral things because if it is boy, I want to go all out with tractors and trucks. Of course, if it is a girl I want to create with pretty and feminine fabrics... what is a girl to do?!?
But I have decided that I would like to prepare something special for baby while I have the time... I envision wrapping the little one in this small quilt for the ride home. Baby's First Blanket... soft and warm, and made with love. Keep your fingers crossed for me that it actually comes to pass.
