Quilts go to the library!

Friday, June 11, 2021

Have you ever read a children's book and noticed a quilt in the illustrations? After having my first son a little more than eight years ago, we started reading bedtime stories - and I started spotting quilts in the books! It didn't take long before I wanted to recreate the quilts.

Fast forward to this month, and that long-time dream has become a reality!

Quilts from children's books

After months (okay, maybe years!) of preparation, I made ten quilts from the illustrations in children's books. All ten are currently on display at my local library for the month of June!

Olympic Rings - A FREE Quilt Block Pattern!

Tuesday, June 1, 2021

This month's Quilt Block Mania theme is "international." I admit, this one really had me stumped. International foods, international travel, the International Space Station...I just couldn't land on anything that excited me. So I asked my husband for help.

Me: "I need something that might represent the word "international." Any ideas?"
Him: The Olympics.

I should have asked him sooner! I love watching the Olympics, and the 2020 Summer Olympics are happening in just a couple months! (Yes, the 2020 Olympics are happening in Tokyo in 2021!) So my block is a fun abstract interpretation of the Olympic Rings!
