I never really thought I would make my own quilt. My mom is an amazing quilter and I’m hoping for one of hers ;). But I got the bug. There are so many neat, modern, beautiful patterns out that I wanted to try something. I have a couple patterns and I even started a quilt from a kit I bought at a local quilt store. But I hadn’t made much progress. Then I ordered a Tina Givens scrap bag from Fabritopia and my first quilt was born. All the scraps were relatively the same size and I just LOVED all the patterns, colors, etc. So, true to form, I decided to make up my own quilt design from the scrap bag – no kit, no pattern, and of course, no patience :)! In one afternoon with my sewing machine on the porch and the girls playing in the water table right below I put together four panels. I will now somehow cut the edges so all four will fit together nicely, add some edge fabric to even out the shape and then possibly hand it off to a very capable quilter! I will keep you all updated, who knows how long this project will actually take!
