I sew



While my kids are at horse camp, I sew. 

I've even started another one.

Awwwww .... That's my first quilt :)

I'd love to make another one too but it will never be as special as my original.

Beautiful!! I remember how proud I was to be able to give my daughter "the first quilt" I shamelessly copied yours, using that beautiful Ginger Blossom fabric. It is still one of our favorite quilts! Thanks so much!

So crisp and summery, perfect for the upcoming weekend =-) I always got a lot of sewing done while the kids were at camp or overnights, too. Just what I always needed to re-charge.

This July I will finally finish hand quilting and then binding this quilt that I started 2 years ago with you. (It's spent a lot of time just sitting.) What's most interesting to me is how much I have learned about fabrics from stalking quilting blogs since then. I love the blues. It makes me want to make a new one!

Dana: I admire your task completion! I keep starting projects only to be distracted a short time later. Enjoy your sewing time! Tricia

Brenis said...

Woohoo!!! Feels good to be sewing, doesn't it?! :) Good for you girl! And thanks to you I am still quilting! :D Yay!!!

Deb said...

It's such a great design that one. I have another one on the go for a neighbour's birthday in October. Yours looks stunning in the sunshine!!

Monica said...

That's the first quilt I ever made along with your tutorial also! I love it!

Cille said...

That's the best way to spend time :) Like your colors a lot.

You know, this is the only pattern that I've actually repeated and want to do again (and I owe it all to youuuuu....). Your blue rails are gorgeous.

i feel you! when my kids are older, and go to horse camp or motor bike camp, or candy camp. i will sew. but for now, i will just play with them and sew when i can! ;)

I made one on the first rounder and it's a favorite -- I'll be making another one before too long - as soon as I decide what fabrics to use.

I LOVE those colors!! Great quilt! I'm sure the owner will love it. I wish I would do quilting more often but I'm too lazy for that, it takes too much time and space (on my scrapbooking I should say to be totally honest LOL ).
Have a great day!

All four of mine were at Grandma's last week and I got an entire quilt top done, a embroidered present, and a pair of PJ's for my daughter done. To say the least I got a little bored without my four little crazies! The quilt is very pretty!

Leslie said...

Luurrrve it! Looks like a 4th of July party to me :)

Mama Said Sew said...

So cute! I'm hoping to finally finish my quilt from that quilt along. It's only been two years. :)

Colleen said...

Love it!! That was the first quilt along I did! I copied the one you made at the time too --sincerest form of flattery right?? Not at all creepy??

Sandra said...

That red fabric really makes the pattern pop! Very nice!

Jenn said...

I really like that bit of red check print in there!

Corinnea said...

Pretty! I love that you kept the pops of red on the sparse side.
