This was a collaboration. My cousin made the top of this quilt for her son, and she asked me to quilt it for her, so I can only take part of the credit. This took me forever, and I am not really sure why, but it was still fun. Enjoy!

I made this baby blanket for my sister's baby, born in April 2007. The pattern called for some strange fabrics, so I changed it a little to make it unique, and I have since made one almost identical to this one. I thought it was pretty special, especially since this was the first one I did on my own, without any help at all. And besides that, it is just so darn cute!
So, this is the first quilt I have ever made. While my husband (then my boyfriend) was away at college and I was still at home, his mother taught me how to make quilts. In fact, that was my birthday present from her. I had a lot of help on this blanket. I actually used it all freshman year in college, though, on the bed in my dorm room, which was pretty cool. So anyway, there you go.

Hello everyone! I have just decided to put my quilts up online so I can kinda show them off. I will do more than that on here, though. I really want a place where I can write about some things that seem to happen in my life. If you don't care about those things I will make the titles of my blog very obvious, so you know whether it is a quilt I am posting or if it is a personal rant. Let me know what you think of my quilts as they go up and how I can improve them, since I am still new at this I would like some advice! Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy this, I will try to keep it interesting.
