    The quilts are gorgeous especially the one I have! Very encouraging to see how you use your talent to be a blessing to others.

    They are all so beautiful and was that Rose’s quilt?
    So my question is – how long does it take you to make one?

    • It depends on the pattern of the quilt and how I decide to tie it all together – hand quilt, ties or sew on buttons. Hugo’s quilt took hundred of hours, but the quilt for Rose (and yes, that was for Rose) was probably done in a day.

  3. WOW! I am very impressed. I’ve never quilted, but it’s something I’d like to learn someday. That idea for the bridal shower was awesome!

    • I was pretty happy with that bridal shower idea too because I came up with it all on my own. 🙂 I just could not face one more cheesy game. We had a lot of fun talking, eating and working together and the bride got a nice memory for her new home.
      Quilting is very easy, and I find it relaxing too. I love the whole process from picking the fabrics to sewing on the binding.

      • I’ve actually been saving our worn-out jeans for a few years, with the idea of making a big patchwork picnic blanket one day. For now, I crochet endless baby blankets for relatives and friends instead 🙂

        Yes, bridal shower games (and baby shower games) are kind of an onerous duty to perform, aren’t they? Much cooler to make something useful and awesome like that!

        • I’m thinking about getting back into crocheting this winter. It’s a nice thing to do while watching movies (or Combat with the girls 🙂 ).
          If I had thought about it I would have bought a fabric marker and had everyone write a message for the bride on the fabic I used for the back. Or for a baby shower everyone could write a wish they had for the baby.
