Working on my next quilt. It's in the design wall stages...but I like it! This material is called "Arcadia" by Sanae for Moda. So fun...

In July, my friend Tami and I went on a trip to the beach. I love the beach. We spent much time taking photos and more time making bags. It was so much fun and nice to get away. And I must say I enjoy working on projects with friends...gives me inspiration and makes it more fun!
Here's the result...

And so it is done...my first quilt.
After several sewing classes and even a few on quilting, I finally took a beginner class to learn correct techniques! The pattern was for a quilt called "A Trip Around the World". I used mostly all Amy Butler fabrics (which are some of my favorite!!) and decided I'd make Angela's soon-to-be baby, Willow, a quilt.
I have heard it is tradition to give away the first quilt you make. And so...this one goes to Willow. I wrote out a few thoughts about my quilt that parallel a new baby. When thinking of the two, there are many similarities...I'm sure you could think of many!!
I love this quilt. It's a pattern I hope to use again and again...
