.birdhouses in december.

This is one of the quilt reveals I’m most proud of.
It’s been just 2 years since I got my sewing machine for Christmas…so just beginning my third year of sewing. After going to the Buggy Barn Quilt Show in August 2010, I fell in love with this quilt. I ordered the kit…waited 4 months…then cut into it. I pieced most of it together at the Crafters Getaway last February.

Fast forward to December…I picked it up from the quilter and quickly put the binding on. I’m in love.


My friends Amy and Candace suggested a lady that does long arm quilting in Richland and this was the first thing I took to her. I am so pleased with the way it turned out.


She quilted each flower differently and this is the one I love the most - pebbles. I really want to learn to quilt like this!


This quilt was not easy to piece and I’m so proud of myself that I completed it – and that it actually looks decent! I’m snuggling under it right now!

SOOOO cute. I am super jealous. I have not quilted ANYTHING in so long. I am pretty sure Ethan's quilt was the last thing I touched. I guess i will have to wait and live it up at the retreat!! LOVE THE BIRDHOUSES!!!
