Okay....the weather is horrible here. It is so hot the boys and I actually fried an egg on the sidewalk! With it being so hot and humid around here that means my TN pain has been off the charts. I am doing well enough avoiding any nasty pain meds but that means I spend a lot of time in a dark, quiet room, laying down. Not fun at all.
Anyway, my kids will often come in and sit with me. This gives me such comfort I don't even have words for how much I get from them just being with me. I started thinking that I wanted to do something to give them comfort, too.
I have wanted to learn how to quilt for sometime now, so I decided that is what I would do. I got books from the library, read everything I could find on the internet, and then took the plunge , so to speak.
I started out VERY basic as you can see. I made some mistakes... but my son loves it!! I purchased the cat themed fabric, he is a cat lover, and then used old, out-grown clothing of his that I had been saving for no real reason...or maybe I was, who knows, to make the other squares.
I found it very theraputic to sew, yes I did everthing by hand! I am already starting a second quilt for my middle son. His will be sports themed. I will again purchase some fabric, but I also have a ton of old sports related shirts I can use as well. I will post when that one is done.
Any quilters out there? Would love some ideas on different styles and patterns.
