So sooner or later Marco and I are planning on starting a family. That means a lot of things- figuring out what I want to be when I grow up, getting into the best shape we can be, buying a ton of cloth diapers and of course tackling a whole laundry list of to do things from our Home To Do List.
The list is long and fairly boring. We are mostly just waiting on cooler weather to motivate us into gear, but while it is still hot as blazes outside, I thought I would started working on cleaning out my fabric stash- especially my bags and bags of odds and ends.
And after a couple of hours "Crumb Quilting" from a great tutorial I found HERE, I found I actually had enough bits and pieces to create three decent sized quilts.
I am going to call this first one "The Quilt I Made While I Thought About You." It turned out to be the perfect crib quilt size.
This second quilt I haven't named yet. It has actually grown from this picture into a twin sized quilt. I decided to raid my larger white/cream colored stash and even added a great cream colored eyelet ruffle around the edges.
And finally, I am still working on this piece. I think I have decided to go back and add frames around each of the separate blocks to also make it stretch closer to a twin sized quilt. I am still playing with the layout as well. Of course I will post pictures when it has all come together.
Who knew I had three great quilts lurking in my dresser drawer all this time. Anyone else getting motivated for big plans? Maybe my quilting is actually a sign that I'm ready for cooler nights already. Can I get an amen?
