Welcome to my new quilt blog! My maternity leave is almost over and I am not under the delusion that I will be able to blog (or probably even quilt) for the next couple of months until school is out. I am sure that my 4 kids (one of which is a newborn) and a full time job are going to be just about as much as I can handle. But this summer I do plan to blog regularly and hopefully get back into my sewing room more often! Until then, I will leave you with an oldie but a goodie. This is one of the few quilts that I designed myself for Mallory when she moved into her big girl bed a couple of years ago. She loves birdies. It was also my first attempt at applique. I have learned and improved a lot since this quilt was made, but it is still one that I am probably the most proud of!
