My First Quilt…


It’s taken over my life.

In a good way.

I have almost completed my first quilt.

But in the meantime, I’ve made three purses, some throw pillows, an apron and a fabric bag for my son’s Nintendo DS.

I have all these ideas for Scrapbooking layouts…still my sewing machine calls to me.

My mother thinks it’s because it’s something new.

I think she’s right.

When I created this layout, I wanted to fuse my two hobbies together.

There is machine stitching and hand stitching on this layout.

I even popped in a few French Knots.

Hand stitching on a layout is not a new technique for me but machine sewing is.

I’ve been having a blast doing it!

Have a happy Monday!

xoxo, Christie
