I'm really more of a bag and quilt maker than a monster maker--but the cute little monster who kicked off this blog had just taken shape in my sewing room the day before, so I wanted to show him off! Today I want to talk about my quilts: I taught myself to quilt at age 14, and until about 7 years ago that was my predominant creative outlet. The pictures above are examples of my style. The top quilt is a wall-hanging, about 24" x 36". I made it about 10 years ago, when "country" colors were very popular (of course, they still are with a lot of people!). The "Welcome" quilt is a very small wall-hanging, about 12" x 14"; I've made and sold a lot of these, and I frequently finish it as a pillow. The lower picture is a baby quilt I made for my cousin's first baby who was born in 2009. I love hearts and incorporate them into most of the things I make, and the bright colors of this quilt really make me happy. I designed these quilts myself (I hate to have to follow a pattern!!).
Tomorrow I will show you pictures of my current obsession: bags!
