Henry was one month old on Valentine’s Day, so it gave me good reason to pull out my red and pink quilts and fabric! I wasn’t sure I was going to attempt these monthly photos, but I do know I’ll regret not having them, so attempt it I shall. As you can see, it’s taken me a couple weeks to actually get the photos off the camera and online…
And a group shot –

Unrelated, but do you all follow Deborah of Whipstitch? I’ve followed her for years and have always loved her writing style and her upbeat and fun personality which comes through in her writing. She’s so enthusiastic about sewing and teaching people to sew and is now offering another fun opportunity for new and seasoned quilters alike with her Murder Mystery Quilt (a monthly subscription club).
When she emailed me about it to see if I’d help spread the word, I was immediately intrigued – it sounds like such a fun and unique idea! You can read more about it here. Knowing Deborah as I feel I do, I knew this would be well thought out and presented beautifully, and I’m pleased to say I was right – I had a chance to peek at January and February’s chapters and quilt blocks and I was immediately sucked right into the story. It’s well written and I can tell already that it will be fun to read and to try to look for clues to figure out the mystery. Deborah also provides nice detail and instruction for the accompanying quilt block – giving enough instruction so that a new quilter could follow along but also keeping it interesting enough for someone who’s been quilting a long time.
Sign ups close at the end of February, so do be sure to head over and take a look if it’s something you’re interested in!
