Since I have all boys, it has been hard for me to give myself permission to have anything too girly around the house. It always made me a little sad when I saw these cute, feminine fabric lines come out and I felt that since my house was so full of boys, I needed to stay away. Finally last year, I told myself to stop being ridiculous and just make a few quilts for me. This was the first one I pieced - just simple squares. There are a few mistakes (I am still learning) but I love the fabrics and I love how fresh and happy it looks. The quilt top has been pieced for a long time, but I finally got around to quilting and binding it. This was my first experience with straight line quilting and I LOVE how it turned out.
I included this picture because you can see the quilting quite a bit better. I am so happy with how this quilt turned out and now it is sitting in my family room. It makes me smile every time I look at it, and I wonder why I didn't let myself do something like this sooner.
