Sketchy Quilts

Quilts are gorgeous, but before they become these masterpieces of fabric they're a little sketchy... Sketched on napkins, stray papers pulled off the refridgerator, or from the bottom of the diaper bag, at least this is how it goes for me! And right now I've got sketchy quilts all over the place getting ready for my first set of patterns. Yeah!

Everywhere I go lately I end up coloring on someone's scratch paper. It's a little
embarrassing actually. I'm also finding out how difficult it is to write up a pattern! Sheesh! How hard can it be really, right :) I think the only real problem with it is minor insecurities and we'll just steam roll past that and soon I'm looking forward to having some fabulous patterns ready to sell! I thought I'd put up a pic of my first attempt at the pattern "You Are What You Eat"
I'll put up a full pic when the pattern is ready, (Honestly, I'm not sure when it could be a week it could be a month! I'm hoping sooner rather than later :) )fFor now here's a hint...

What do you think?

My next project is a table topper called "Why Choose!" It's all pinks and greens. So fun and springy!


  1. Hi Hillary,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog..
    I'm really glad you like my potholder... Gotta love scrappy!! :D
    Your pink and green sounds lovely.

    So funny, what you're saying about sketching everywhere... I keep a piece of printer paper near my laptop (my mouse sits on it) and I scribble ideas and such all over it...
    It looks terrible but it's right here when I want it... My family think I'm mad because I sit talking to myself about measurements etc as I write them down...
    I do have a sketch book... *giggle*

    How long have you been in blogland... looks like about a month... Welcome!!!

    Robyn xx

  2. Hey Girl, I love the site and I love that you have most of my favorite blogs on your site so I can see when they blogged! You have made my life so much easier and I am anxious to see the patterns. You know I love you are what you eat!


Leave me some happy thoughts~
