Sadly, I missed blogging about my 1 year anniversary of quilting.
I made my very first quilt just over a year ago.
I never followed quilting blogs and I didn't know anyone who quilted.
On a whim in JoAnn fabric, I saw the beautiful batiks and picked out a quilting book.
I had always wanted to learn how to quilt. Always. Just one of those things.
I thought to myself, "By Golly, I'm going to learn. I'm just going to do it."
I was sixteen weeks pregnant and at the time did not know the gender of our baby. I picked out girl colors. It took me twenty hours.
And much to my surprise: $80.
I was so happy with it and I learned so much.
I'm still happy quilting.
I'm still learning.
I'm continuing to grow.
And I still LOVE those batiks.
And I love the little girl who gets wrapped up and snuggled in it every day.
