The world of quilting

I have been quilting since 2001. Mostly self taught and inspired by countless friends. I want to share what I do in between mothering and serving and keeping things running at home. I find myself moving from very traditional quilts to a more minimal modern look. I have some lofty goals for this year. I don't forsee this blog as an everyday thing for me. I am hoping for a once a week update and to use it as a journal of the past projects.

Baby Quilts: 6

First is to finish the baby quilt for baby no. 4. He is already 4 months old! Next is a baby quilt for a dear friend at purple petunia. She is one of my crafting buddies and inspirations. I have at least 2-3 more baby quilts to make in addition to these two.

Twin quilts: 3

My brother asked me to make bed quilts for their two girls. One likes pink and purple and the other is blue and a little bit of green. I want to to finish the one I started for my second son 2 years ago. I ran into a snag and neatly tucked it away. I think I am ready to tackle it again.

Quilts for my parents: 2-3

I have been putting off this project for a while. My mom has a queen sized quilt I made for her a few years ago. I want to make my parents throw quilts. Something to be warm and cozy under. A hug from me. Maybe a wallhanging too for my dad. He winters in Mexico and that might be the inspriration for that quilt.

My final goal for the year:
A king size quilt for US. I make lots of quilts. Very few stay in our house. I saw this quilt and thought this is it! I have drawn many drafts and started on thinking that was the one. But a project this big can lose it's appeal before it's done. I asked my husband what his two favorite colors and black! How very interesting. I just bought 10 yards of black. Now to piece and accent with some great greens.
