Welcome

This blog is devoted to all things quilted and handmade. I have a new found love affair with quilts. I LOVE the colors, fabrics, designs and love that is sewn into quilts. Along with this new addiction comes a world of wonderfully kind and creative women (with a couple men thrown in for variety...LOL!). Please enjoy your stay here. I hope it will fuel your own creativity...

My sunshine quilt


Last winter was dragging on and seemed like it would never end. Each trip to the fabric store I was drawn to the warm yellows that reminded me of the sun and summer. I just had to do something with them. I found this pattern called Romantic Patches in the Leisure Arts book 'Quaint Quilts to Love'. It just makes me feel warm and comforted to look at it. It is my instant sunshine for the long winter months ahead.
