Bright baby quilt


We have had such a busy summer! Seems like it has just flown by and now it is September…

Thought I would post a couple of things I worked on earlier this year. For me, sharing some of my projects is one of the biggest motivations in starting a blog.

This is a little quilt I made for my two year old grand daughter. She loves purple and pink and I had acute little set of fat quarters that I wanted to coordinate with these bright solids. The solids were a nice “hand dyed” line and it turned out so cute. I used my embroidery machine to personalize the quilt with the date and a gift tag. It was machine quilted with a a low loft batting and I used every inch of my scraps in the binding. Simple, bright and perfect for a drag around quilt.

Now I need to make another for grand daughter number two!

About JoAnne Freeman

My name is JoAnne Freeman. I am married to my best friend, almost 35 years already! We have three wonderful children and two beautiful grand daughters. I am been sewing since I was five years old, in fact my earliest memory is sitting in my Mom's lap with her hands carefully placed over mine as we sewed a scrap quilt. Sometimes when I am sewing I am struck by how much my hands look like hers. Deja Vu moments. I have been scrapbooking and card making for about 12 years, seriously addicted for about 5 years. I discovered Copic markers about a year ago and have to add this to my other addictions (fabric, digital stamps, ribbon, card stock and scrapbook paper, machine embroidery designs to list a few). I have completed my Copic certification and hope to complete the Intermediate certification in 2012. My excitement with this new blog stems from my delight and enjoyment that I have in following so many of the talented artists that blog out there! I learn everyday, shamelessly watch tutorials and LOVE the outlet that these crafts provide for showcasing the talent out there.
