Simply Squares

Another baby quilt -- just for the fun of it. Made from a small stack of coordinating Robert Kaufman fat quarters.

Baby Quilt (#5)

And here's my napping quilt -- a larger, scrappier version. These fabrics were all from my scrap pile -- some of them must be more than 15 years old. It's a good feeling to put together a cozy quilt just from what you have at hand.

Napping Quilt

Quilting motivates me to get out of bed in the morning when the alarm goes off. I always have a project or two in the works and many more unfinished projects waiting for attention. And even if it's only for ten or fifteen minutes, on most days I spend a little time at my machine in the morning before I have to head out the door. It's a great way to start the day. Often my days end the same way.
This is the project that's currently in my machine. Some mornings I only stitch on one more strip, some mornings I finish two strips. I've machine quilted all of my recent quilts -- this one is tempting me to try hand quilting again.


  1. Keep documenting. This is fun. Even though I've seen them before, they always look new & inspiring.

  2. When you say hand-quilting on this one, I'm thinking...yeow..with all those seams??
