I'm making a quilt

I had a great time at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show this past Saturday. There were so many beautiful quilts. I've put together a collage with some of my favorites.

The town has a quilt store called the Stitchin' Post that has beautiful fabric. They sell modern fabric that many chain stores don't carry. You can order fabric right from their website, which I may be doing. However, thanks to my mother-in-law, I didn't go away empty handed. This is what I came home with....

Yep, I am going to attempt to make my first piece quilt! The kit above came with all the fabric I will need inside. Isn't the box it came in super cute? The suggested pattern is below, but I am not sure if that is the pattern I will do yet. I am contemplating doing a quilt made of all stripes. Anyhow, I fell in love with the fabric and had to have it. I am excited to get going!

So have any of you ever made a piece quilt? Anyone want to join me in my endeavor?


  1. so cute!! You can get some super cute and modern fabric at beverlys on madison, around the corner from deseret book and distribution.
    i've been wanting to make one for awhile now..probably won't try for awhile though..have a lot of other unfinished things going on right now....Good luck!

  2. Oh gosh...I am so jealous! I have quilted before, but with a LOT of help. Good luck and I would love to see your progress!

  5. I started my first quilt (a patriotic theme) when I was pregnant with William. I got it all pieced, but that's it. 8 years and 5 children later, I still have it folded up with my sewing stuff waiting to be quilted and bound.
