Back to Quilting!

I am starting on a new adventure by getting back into quilting. I am really excited about it!! But, let me tell you how it began. About a month ago, I prayed for a friend that shared my sewing interest. Well, just a few weeks later I met this sweet lady who came to our house for a BBQ. After getting to know each other, she was curious about a quilt I made. So I pulled it out of a box for her to see it.

It is just a little sampler of SunBonnet Sue. I loved doing the applique but it was a challenge for me to pick out coordinating fabrics. My friends interest in the quilt was all the initiation I needed to start dreaming about quilts again. The best part is we are sharing this adventure together. We went to Rossville Quilts to pick out some fabric. This was our first time there and we fell in love with the store right off. The great part is we can order from them online. As is always the case with me it was easy to see what my next (second or third) project will be!!!

I went with this pretty pink "Lily and Will" collection by moda. The colors are more subdued than I usually go for but after opening it up I've found the colors really soothing and elegant. I spent a few hours sewing the strips together and it was helpful to unravel the tangled thoughts in my head. And not having to cut before sewing was such a luxury.

Isn't awesome that God can give us quilting friends when we ask Him? :) I am so thankful you have a new friend to make more pretty things with! Have a lovely day!
