My First Finished Quilt!!

The Forty Year Old Quilt

That's right, I made a quilt for my sister, who turned forty a few months ago.  It is a good thing that she turned forty, because I can almost guarantee the farsightedness set in hours after midnight of her birthday...and she couldn't see my tricky little mess ups.  Don't you go looking close either!!
Don't you love rick rack??? Do you love happy colors??
I think quilting is my thing.  Life was especially stressful leading up to finishing this quilt.  My husband was having surgery, along with my daughter.  Sewing doesn't come naturally to me, and requires quite a bit of brain power.  I think that is a good thing...I can't obsess too much about other things when I am trying to keep my stitches straight!


  1. The quilt turned out lovely!! The colors are wonderful....I am so glad that you are now blogger, it will be fun to keep up with you.

  2. Oh Diana! Your spirit comes through that quilt. I feel like I know you better by getting to see it.

    I LOVE my quilt...actually, it's not really mine now, my girls have taken it over as their picnic blanket (in the middle of the family room), baby blanket, their snuggle blanket as they're watching a movie, etc. You did an awesome job! I can't wait to see more of your crafty work!

  4. Thanks, Everyone!!!! Quilting, Blogging...this is so fun, now when do I get laundry done???
