Cre8tive Quilter: Rosemont Wrap up

Haha! Check this out!

Cre8tive Quilter: Rosemont Wrap up

Jen put me in her blog and linked to mine!!! I feel famous! Thanks Jen! (you're now my roommate for life! For better or for worse, til death do us part!) :)

More college era quilts

When I was in college the closest place for me to get fabric was Walmart. Not only did they have fabric, but it was $2.00 a yard. That was probably the biggest draw for me. I know there's a HUGE difference in feel between most Walmart fabric and all quilt shop fabric....but if I spent my senior year college tuition on quilt fabric, I have a feeling I'd come to regret that soon after! :) Needless to say for $2.00 a yard you can still make some pretty things! Here's a couple....

This one is for my nephew, Brayden. Although I didn't know if I would have a niece of nephew when I made it....so there's not much blue or pink! ;)

Then there was a blue dotted fabric that I love. There's also a coordinating stripe and then some marbled basic colors. I made a few log cabin blocks and arranged them in different ways and I have NO IDEA which one to make! I think I like arrangement #2 the best. What do you think?




That's just a project that I pulled out when I had nothing else to work on.... Now that I'm a "genuine" quilter, I have more projects than I could shake a stick at! For every project I finish I think I acquire 15 others. For all of you non-quilters you may think I'm exaggerating.....but for all you quilters, 15 is probably an understatement! :)
