Precious, Soft, Baby Quilts are SEW Irresistible

You take a quick trip to that favorite fabric store, pushing the shopping cart up and down the crowded aisles, and trying to choose just the right coordinating fabrics for your next quilt. The question in your mind right now or the problem you have to solve is how to choose the fabrics and what kind of quilt do you really want to make?

Where Do I Come Up With Ideas for My Baby Quilts?

It may be in the middle of the night or on the way to the grocery store, I can get an idea for my baby quilts sometimes in the most unusual places.
I live in South Florida with a lake in my back yard. It is not uncommon to have the most unusual wild life in and around the water. A beautiful stork flew into the pine tree last week and though he may have flown for miles, chose to stand, as the species always does, on one leg. He or she posed long enough for me to take this photo. How appropriate, a stork came by, as I am looking for ideas for baby quilts!

Good Friends: Like Handmade Baby Quilts

“Good friends are like baby quilts, they never lose their warmth.”

Despite the long day at the job that pays the bills, taking time out for my craft group each week is a must. This group of wonderful ladies has been meeting each week with our crafts. There are a variety of talents being showcased from hand quilting to rug making, from crocheting to knitting and even cross stitching to mending. But whatever each chooses to bring with them that evening to keep their hands occupied, the room is always filled with the spirit of friendship and the joy of being out of the house without the kids and husbands for the night!
