My Entry - Blogger's Quilt Festival

So I was trying to think of quilts that I haven't shared yet, and really the only ones that I don't think that I've shown are the ones that I've been making for The Gracie Jane Project. Although I haven't had as much time to devote to this project as I would like, once we move and I get an actual sewing room, I will be able to create more for the families that need them so much.


The only thing stopping me now is the fact that everything is stored in the closet and to get it out, get started and then put it all away really takes more time than William and little pup Clarabelle are willing to let me have to myself.

I really do believe in this project so much though, and I can't wait to have it really take off and give families the comfort that can only come from something handmade. The quilts themselves are about 20x20, and backed with flannel. I've been trying really to make look as much like a large quilt as possible, differe patterns, different quilting, I really would like them to have the feel that we all love in our much larger versions, but in a small little package.


Check out more entries at Park City Girl! Thanks Amy for giving all the online quilters a show we can be proud of.
