I purchased this fabulous Heather Bailey Pop Garden fabric last Spring from http://www.fabric.com/ knowing it was destined to become my first quilt. The gorgeous (and my favorite) aqua and red paisley fabric will be the backing, and the brown semi-floral fabric will be the border.
I'm not exactly sure what pattern I will use, but I do want to keep it simple. I think 10x10 in. squares will show off the large print fabrics nicely. I like this pattern by Thimble Blossoms called A Piece of Cake.
I've also considered this ragged squares quilt by Crazy Mom Quilts. She's got tons of great tutorials out there just begging to be tried.
I'm so glad you stopped by! I'm fairly new to the homesteading scene, so I have a lot to learn. We moved into our dream home on 10 acres in the fall of 2009, and we are blessed with 2 children, 9 chickens, 2 dogs, 1 stray cat, lots of geese and ducks, and a gorgeous pond.
I'll be writing about my adventures in organic gardening, cooking traditional foods, chicken raising, sewing, soap making, sustainable living, and much more. I'd be honored if you'd join me here as I embark on this adventure. If I know my family, it won't be dull around here!
