I have created quilted life

and I love every wonky inch. I have to thank Melissa at 100 Billion Stars for inspiring me to make something. Of the hundreds of quilts and toys and sweaters and socks and bibs and hats I have bookmarked, few have been started and none have been finished. Until today. This Mug Rug tutorial made me go to my stash and put a little something together.

I collected some scraps and started to slice, practising my rotary skills.

I was so pleased with that one that I made a second one. It’s no fun to drink tea alone.

This was my first real attempt at quilting and I’m pretty pleased with myself. There’s three new projects cut and waiting for me, so off I go!
