Now, I have been sewing for about 20 years but, I have never formally quilted. (I have made some terrible blankets that I lied and said were quilts but any real quilter
I figured out that I wanted to make a baby quilt for First Mate's Shore House Crib. No lie, it took me two classes to pick out the quilt block pattern I wanted to attempt. And, then, once I decided on a quilt block - I found something totally different. Here is what I chose (from Piper's Girls Etsy Shop):
Since it is going to be for the Shore House, I decided not to go the red, blue and yellow route (that's a bit boyish anyway) and chose more beach-y colors:
Now, I wish I could tell you that I hand picked this fabric, but, I did not. They were pre-packaged from my local quilting store, so, someone with a much better design eye than myself can take the credit. Pretty, no?
So, now, every Tuesday (I hope) I will bore you to tears with the development of my quilt. I figure that if I am sharing the process with the world, I am more accountable (ha!).
Here's to nothing!
