I just found out about something called a Blogger Blog Hop for newbie bloggers like me so I have signed up! I have no idea what it's all about, but if it means learning how to be a better blogger, I'm in. I'm still tinkering around with what I can do with the blog tools and haven't figured it all out yet.
The colorful background you see on my page is a picture of some fabric that I bought years ago and it is a perfect representation of my favorite color. ALL OF THEM!! :)
I have never been able to bring myself to cut it up so I have three yards of this gorgeous fabric that has been sitting around waiting for me to figure out what I'm going to do with it. (since this post was written I changed the background to white and just used the fabric for the lettering so it wasn't quite so distracting)
I am working on another quilt project (baby quilt) for my niece Katie, but since I don't know whether or not she will be reading this, I can't show you that until after the baby shower. I hope she loves it! I can show you the quilt that inspired it. It is one I found in the 2013 May/June issue of Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting. I can show you my inspiration without giving away what it is. So that finish will be for a future post.
Speaking of baby blankets, take a look at this . . .
What you are seeing is a new project in the making. The pink blanket is fuzzy and soft and perfect for a baby blanket except for that pink ribbon on the corner. I want to applique a monogrammed initial over it. Anybody got any good ideas on how to do this and make both sides look good? I want to use the letter "m". I'm picturing either a pink gingham or some kind of floral with lots of pink flowers. I'm really liking this idea because it will be a pretty swift finish. Love that instant gratification! I am not just asking to fill space, I would be delighted to hear from anyone with some ideas on this.
I've got so many other ideas I want to share so I have to be careful and not write about too much in each post!
