A Little "Lovie"

One of my passions is to sew, and especially to quilt! When Anne was a young girl, I tried to encourage her to share my passion of stitching, but she chose other outlets for expressing her creativity. So, this post is to celebrate Anne's request to take needle in hand and create a "lovie" for a little sweetheart about to be born! Anne came here on a Saturday with a sewing project in mind...a sweet, little place-on-the-floor quilt for a baby girl to lay on comfortably. It must be fluffy, soft and small. (She found her idea from the cool book, Last-Minute Fabric Gifts by Cynthia Treen.) Anne carefully "auditioned" fabrics for just the right combination for the Nordlund baby. Then, she measured, rotary cut, ironed, sewed, and hand stitched away! Knowing Anne, this is a true labor of love!
Voila...the finished project! I'm so proud of you, Anne! And congratulations to Barbara and Nathan on the birth of little Sanne Grace this past Friday. We hear she is a beautiful baby and all are well!

I do look like quite the quilter, and I enjoyed making it with you. You are a great instructor and I would love to be crafty with you again some time!

Barbara and Nathan really liked this quilt, and I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you so much for your help!

GREAT JOB ANNE!

Mrs. Lindahl...maybe I can come and have some quilting lessons from you. I really would LOVe to learn how to do this.

Please...come!

I would be happy to give you some basic quilting lessons. Do you already know how to sew? Would you like to learn how to do it by machine or by hand? After having done both, I would recommend the machine method for projects that you just gotta finish, and the hand method if you want a special heirloom.

Quilting is so much fun, but, beware: IT CAN BE ADDICTIVE!
