Wow, it's been a while! Thanks for stopping by. I am going to share more of the stories behind the products I have in my shop. I love reading other creative's stories, and I hope that you enjoy what you find here.

I made a sixteen patch baby quilt for my golf-loving friend’s new baby with small pieces from my scrap bins. It was the first quilt I ever started with no plan, and no pattern. I kept browsing my quilt pattern library (yes, my collection has grown to what I can honestly call a library), but nothing felt quite right! Too many colors, or not enough colors. Too modern, or too traditional. So I went back to what I know best - patchwork. Scrappy patchwork quilts are such a favorite of mine. I find them to be the perfect mix of modern and vintage, and so easy to make whimsical or sophisticated.

I grabbed some blues, greens, and neutrals, cut them into 2.5 inch squares. Because I do find I need some sort of structure, I decided to sort them into pairs, and sew them into sixteen patch blocks. The first quilts I ever made were scrappy patchwork, and this seemed like a way to "level up" that concept. I grabbed pieces as I went, pairing colors together, and making blocks. It was such a freeing project and I felt like I was really getting to use my creativity each step of the way. Even though I watched it come together, the look of the final quilt ended up being a surprise.

The quilt was so well-received that I wanted to make a matching bundle for the shop. The bundle is nearly identical to the fabrics in the quilt I made, but I did have to swap out a few fabrics that I didn’t have in the shop.

Have you ever started a quilting project with no plan or pattern? Did you enjoy the process or make you feel a little bananas? How did it turn out?
