Well it’s not perfect, but… what a journey I’m on. If you’d have told me in January that I would make a quilt this year I probably would have laughed. Here it is though and I am so thrilled with it, wrinkles and puckers and all.
Erin from house on hill road contributed this picnic blanket with rock pockets tutorial to Sew, Mama, Sew!’s Summer Sewing tutorials in 2008. When I saw this post a couple month ago I knew I wanted this to be my first quilting project. I’ve always wanted a great blanket for picnics, the rock pockets are simply genius, and I knew it would be a push to my skills. Now I’m hooked! I can’t wait to try another quilt. Maybe something small for the Craft Hope project. Maybe something BIG for my 7th year wedding anniversary in September. Who knows! I’ll let you know when I’ve figured it out. What a journey. Thanks for sharing the sights.
