Half Year in Review

I began quilting in January of this year. I'm a little late in starting a quilting blog! However, I decided that this blog would be more than a quilting blog because I will share other things I enjoy like cooking and getting great deals with coupons.

In an effort to catch you all up on my quilting progress I will post pictures of all my completed quilts this week in different posts.

#1- Nine Patch:

#2 -Pink Ribbon Wishes:


#4-Simple Strips:

#5-Flight of the Birds:

Those are my first five quilts. More to come later. If you have any questions leave them in the comments and I will answer as soon as I can!

I must go start supper now...we are having breakfast! Turkey bacon, scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, and biscuits!


  1. Greetings from Maryland. (Near Washington DC)Just found your blog through Amy's quilt along! Your quilts are awesome!!!! And all since January! Wowwee! Glad I found your blog.

  2. Hi, Brittany, I know your mom, Vicky Carr Collins, from work. She has visited my office in St Paul, MN and I worked with her on the ITLA project. I find it so refreshing to find a young person such as yourself interested in quilting. I have been quilting for about 10 years. I have made many quilts, but have only kept one for myself. I enjoy making them and giving them as gifts. My favorite patterns/quilters are Lynette Jensen of Thimbleberries - MN based quilted, Eleanor Burns of Quilt in a Day, and Sharlene Jorgensen of Quilting in the Heartland - another MN based quilter. I would love to share thoughts and ideas with you - if you would like! Wendy Cartmell. wrheim@comcast.net

  3. Thanks so much both of you! Wendy, any helpful tips you offer will be much appreciated! I get most of my quilt patterns from different blogs and a few I make up on my own. I have two quilt patterns from Elanor Burns that I haven't made yet but hope to get to soon. I look foward to "meeting" all of you!

  4. all those quilts since Jan.......your terrific....great job!


I treasure your comments. I receive a blessing with each one. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.
