Weddings and Etsy

What happenings around here! We have a wedding coming up and I couldn't be more excited! My oldest son, Sean is getting married! Next May! Wow!
His fiance, Rea, is the loveliest girl- we just adore her!

My daughter Alyssa and I are thinking we better get started on a wedding quilt! We don't have much time. We have been talking about maybe doing one of Judy Niemeyer's patterns- one of the Wedding Ring patterns. Of course, that is ambitious.
or I could design something. So many choices.

Any suggestions?

And Alyssa and I just started an Etsy shop. Right now there is just one quilt that is posted.

Isn't it pretty? This quilt was made from our pattern, Mosaic Medley.
I just love the colors.

I hope to post more items soon. There will be items from my personal stash and maybe some items from Seams Like a Dream. Over the years we have created a few extra quilts, bags and stuff as we test patterns.

This quilt, Newpaper, we just donated to Quilts to Basics. We saw a post about it on Pat Sloan's blog. It seemed like such a worthy cause and we thought Newspaper deserved a good home.

It has been so much fun creating quilts to donate- I love using up my stash; I love designing and creating quilts and I love to know that someone else can also enjoy them!

Thursday I am off to Annapolis to visit Elizabeth and do a local shop hop called Quilter's Quest with her and her friend Sharon. I should say, our friend Sharon! We will get to visit 10 shops including Jinny Beyer Studio which we have been talking about going to for a while. Should be fun!

When I get back, I think it will be time for a pre-holiday giveaway. I am debating what it will be so you will have to check back to see what happens!

in the meantime...

Happy quilting!
