Dreamy Stars Sparkling Under My Needle
And here I’m shaking my head with that WHAT! look on my face…..”Who, me?” NEVER!
Yep…this was me
Quilts ‘N’ Things Addict
I admit it…I’m a quilting addict. But, if you’re here then it’s likely you are too! That also means we’re fabric addicts, and quilty tool addicts…this list goes on.
Please join me for the fun!
I’ve been showing on social media, photos and small video clips of this gorgeous Twinkling Stars quilt journey. Now, let’s line it up!
Stay Up on Things
Besides, our friend’s mother is 94, so when they returned from their latest visit, they asked me to make a quilt for her and one for her daughter who cares for her.
And who can really resist building a quilt for dear friends?
Is it going to be good enough? How can I take this to the next level to make this a more than wonderful quilt? Think about it, this mother is 94? How many gorgeous quilts has she seen in her lifetime?
Do you have those thoughts?
I shoved my fear to the back of my brain and asked some questions. What color does she like? What size do you think will work best? I didn’t have to go far with the questions before I was told to make the backing minky. So, these were the answers: Purple, twin and minky. (That’s another story to tell about the other half of the family and making a quilt for that side. Another time…). I believe most of my friends know I love to sew with Shannon Fabrics Minky.
I was all over the internet. Hitting up all my favorite spots such as: Missouri Star Quilt Co, Fabric.com, Connecting Threads, and Bluprint. I did a quick search on Bluprint for the color purple and Twinkling Stars was the result!
I promptly showed the kit to my friend and she loved it! She’s so adorable and probably would have said yes to anything I showed her!
What was I afraid of before?
I still have dancing feet…!
So I bought the kit and waited.
I’m so thankful Bluprint knows how to get the shipping done. I dug into that box like there was no tomorrow, as if my very life depended on it.
Moving on…I have been working away on this quilt. It’s even on my longarm getting quilted right now.
Why…why would I tell you the end before telling you the middle? We’ll get to the middle part later…
Please don’t forget to share!
Nearly all my quilts have a story in them. I plan to share as many as I remember with you. The ups the downs the…”whoops! What was I thinking”…moments. As I move along I hope to inspire and encourage your journey in quilts.
I love to hear stories.
Please send me your stories about your quilts or whatever your making. Where the idea started and how it moved from there. And if you want me to, I’ll show them off for you.
Most of all, let’s have fun!
