the quilts.


Did you know that I had a huge surge of energy and motivation last year?  I had this idea in mind for about a year and a half.  Knowing that I would be getting pregnant for the whole year, I wanted to get this goal done and out of the way.  So a year ago, I collected my fabric and got to work.  The cutting part wasn't difficult because I kept the design simple.  I then went to a quilt shop over in Ephrata, WA that allows you to rent out a free-arm quilting machine.  I spent the majority of my Saturday quilting these together.

Then they sat....for about 4 months.

I was SO CLOSE to being done.  And of course the binding is always the hardest part.  Plus, with morning sickness setting in and exhaustion, it went on the back burner.

I got a boost of energy back 2nd trimester with heading to UT and all.  I wanted to show my mom the finished product so I finally got them done.  In my dream home, the girl's room is pink, blue and red.  I can't do a thing, I feel, in this rental and brown walls.  But I've started a collection of decor for their room.  But even the matching beds is perfect right now.  I am in love with how they turned out.  I have to say I am proud of myself for making 2 twin-sized quilts!!
