Child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, quilter, basket lover, amateur photographer, flower and vegetable gardener …….. some a little of who I am, some a lot of who I am, and all a part of me. When I started quilting several years ago, it sparked a passion in my creative side that I never knew existed. I fell in love with it from the very start. I love everything about it, from choosing the fabrics and designing the quilt until the time I finish the last stitch of the binding and everything in between.

Mini Churn Dash

I finally did a little quilting for me this weekend, a mini quilt that I have had in mind for some time.  We painted the downstairs bathroom in November and I have wanted something quilted in there since.  I went through my stash (yes, 2013 is the year for stash busting) and found some Moda --- one called Warm Memories and the other two pieces Vine Creek, both by Kansas Troubles.  I have a couple of blogging friends who are the masters of mini-quilts (hello Janet and Doniene)!  If you love quilting and have not checked out their blogs, hop right on over to both because you will be delighted.  Anyway, their quilting and their faith have inspired me many times.  My new mini-quilt isn't quite as "mini" as some they have done, but at 15 x 15 inches, it is still mini to me.

I have a couple of baskets in my bathroom and I made garters for both.  I am still not quite sure about the bows.  It seemed like a good idea, but once I got them on they look a little too "cutesy" for my taste.  I can always remove that part later if I decide I would rather not have them.

I have been doing some quilting for others, so it was nice to spend just a little time yesterday making something for myself.  I hope you all are having a day full of blessings!
