Urban Blooms

It’s been far too long since I sat behind my sewing machine and created., far too long since I’ve started a quilt, and far too long since I’ve finished a quilt.

Sewing and quilting is cathartic and peaceful.  I love the creative process and the accomplishment.

And so we start a new year and 2012 promises to be filled with lots of quilts! Yipee!

2012 musts:

  • Make quilt for a bff who moved recently
  • Finish quilt for a cousin’s wedding (ahem…she got married a long time ago…gack!)
  • Make quilt for another cousin’s upcoming wedding present
  • Make baby quilt for a cousin’s first baby
  • Finish Ellie’s quilt
  • Make a quilt for myself

First up is called Urban Blooms (unless I come up with a more creative title ;) ).  I’m loosely using the Lemon Squares pattern by Fresh Lemons.  More than a year ago I bought a quilt kit that was on sale.  It didn’t have the pattern with it, but that was fine, because I bought the kit for the fabric anyway.  I loved the colors and I loved how the colors were out of my normal repertoire/comfort zone.  I’ve been waiting for the perfect occasion and perfect recipient, and I found it.  This one’s for you B:
