So Long, February


I will always look back on February 2012 as the month that blogging came alive for me thanks to Lynne of Lily's Quilts. Her Small Blog Meet is a brilliant idea, giving new bloggers like me the chance to branch out and get to know other people who are also stepping out into the amazing online quilting community. If you have the chance, click on the button to the right to see what's going on there today.

It's been a great month of sewing.  My new sewing room is finally in working order, making it easier for me to plan, store, and finish my projects. I also got the chance to try making several new items this month...pillows, a bag, a more complex wall hanging, even a little improvisational quilting. It's opened my eyes to the possibilities, and my want-to-do list is growing by the day.

Perhaps the best thing about this month was getting to know so many other quilters. I've enjoyed meeting new people and seeing what they're learning and accomplishing. It's been such an inspiration, and I'm so grateful for the encouragement to keep growing.

So long, February. You were amazing.

  12. Hi Heidi - stopping via Lily's small blog meet. You've had a great month for projects! I've been looking for black and white striped fabric similar to what you have on your scrappy mini-quilt - I don't suppose you know the name/manufacturer?
