In the summer of 2007 my Grandma taught me how to sew. We had just moved back to the states after living in Germany for 4 years.  My husband went straight to military training for 5 months and I, with our 2 little ones, lived with my parents.  Every day during nap time I would walk down the street to my Grandma's house and she would teach me how to quilt.  I would spend hours there and often my mom would have to call and tell me that it was time for dinner and the kids were awake.  It was a great bonding time with my Grandma and time for me away from my little ones.  I have been hooked ever since. Here are some of my quilts I have made.

    This is the first quilt I ever made. 
This is the second quilt.  I made this one for my son Brian who was 3 at the time. 
This one I made for my baby girl who was almost 1.

My first queen quilt.  I made this one for our bed.  It was so much fun to make.  I love scrappy quilts.

I love to make baby quilts.  I love the bright colors and the size!

This is made from a scrap bag of fabric my Grandma gave me.  It is fabric from the 1920s.  We like to have picnics on this one.

A baby gift for a friend.

Having fun with the color purple!

My Grandma taught me not to waste fabric.  So all 2 inch scraps.  This size is perfect for the pack in play.  It is the exact size to just lay in there.  I love it!

Another gift!

For a friend who loves turtles.  Those are turtles in the squares.

For a friend who was having her first baby.

I started making this one because I had nothing else to do.  It grew into this quilt and then I found out we were pregnant with another girl!  So I put a border of hearts around it.  It actually took me 9 months to make so it was done just in time for her.

A new quilt for my son.  He needed a big boy quilt!

We all fight over lap quilts on the couch so I made this one for my son, Brian.  So now each one of us has our own lap quilt to snuggle in and watch tv.

I made this one for a friend who was going to get her little boy they adopted from Vietnam.

A Christmas quilt...still is not finished! :}

I made another one of these quilts for a friend.

I made a quilt out of my husband's boxers.  He would not throw them away so I took care of them! :)  He loves His PERSONAL lap quilt.
The boxer quilt finished!

Another quilt for a friend.

A quilt for a friend's second baby.

I made this quilt for fun and started my Etsy store at this time.

Another quilt I made for my Etsy store.

I made this quilt, queen size, for our bed.  I love it!  I had it professionally quilted too. 

I made this for our 4th baby, Jacob.  He is our little monkey.  I did the applique by hand for him.  He is that special!  I do not enjoy appliqueing!

I also made Jacob this peek a boo quilt to play with on the floor.  It has 4 crinkle flaps and 4 pockets.  He enjoyed it until he started crawling!  He started to crawl at 6 1/2 months so it didn't last as long as I would have liked!

Each one of my quilts I make is so personal to me.  I think it is because I spend a lot of time with the fabric while making them.  When I am making them for myself, friend, or family I try to pray continually for that person it is going to.  There is something so comforting about home made quilts!
