My family and I have been snowed in for a few days and there is more snow to come. I get bored really easy and need to be entertained – so to entertain myself this weekend I made a strip quilt. The quilt guild in North Dakota that I am a member of (when I can remember to pay my dues) gives away quilts to children and others if they are needed. I needed to make a boy quilt. Being the mama of two boys I have found there is not alot of “boy fabric” around. I found some really cute pieces and made a quilt – I love it! It was so fun and a much needed diversion. I do not mind being in the house for days on end, I just get bored with the everyday laundry, cooking and cleaning. I wanted to make something that was not expected of me. I have brought several projects from Quilter’s Eden that need to me sewn into store samples. I think I did two last week and I have started another really cute sample for the store. I even started a girl strip quilt and have a couple more ideas to sew up more strips. Time to get to the sewing machine.
