Me & Bernina...

Long ago in the times of warm weather, I decided that I wanted to get into qUilTiNg. I know right now you are thinking...does this girl have hObBy A.D.D. or what. To that I say-YES!!! I guess I just want to try a lot of new things & I go a little crazy sometimes. Anyway, my friend was having a baby so I told her to pick a main fabric & I would do the rest. Since I don't actually own a sewing machine, I called my 14 year old niece & borrowed her BeRniNa. I had a blast~cutting & sewing & piecing, & loving every minute of it! Well, like I said it was warm when I started, Okay- actually hot then, I know it was a while ago! But, finally the project is finished & I couldn't be happier with it!!! I will definitely quilt again!

Too cute Brit! I got a sewing machine for Christmas, and it's still in the box! Can't wait to come out to Utah and have you teach me a thing or two!

I'd SERIOUSLY consider untieing (or is it untying?) my tubes and having another baby to get a blanket like this out of you...

What? You quilt too! Please slow down so the rest of us can pretend to be as talented and crafty! I tried quilting and gave up after a day of frustration!

It's sooo stinkin' cute!
