Mama Pea Quilts Website Is Finally Here!

One of the reasons I started this quilting blog was to connect with other online quilters to get a broader view of what was happening out there in the quilting world, and another was as an adjunct to the website I hoped to get up and running in order to sell my one-of-a-kind handmade baby quilts on the Internet.

Well, it took a long time, but with my computer savvy/website designer daughter coaxing, educating, pushing and pulling me the whole way, the Mama Pea Quilts website is officially up and running!

I am super-excited, a little shakey, and very happy. If a person is able to make a little money doing what they love to do, what can be better? To spend time each day in my quilt studio creating a quilt that will keep a little one warm or become a well-loved "security blankie" . . . that brings me a lot of enjoyment.

I've said before that quilting energizes me. Seeing the quilt take form from a concept of vague shapes, colors, pieces of fabric to a finished product that you can be proud to have for your own little baby or to give as a gift . . . I can't think of anything else I'd rather be doing. (Well, perhaps purchasing more fabric comes in a close second.)

Where will this little, fledgling Internet business take me? I don't know. But I'm anxious for the ride, and because of the pure pleasure I get from making baby quilts and the satisfaction of making them available to you, the struggle that it's taken to get this far will be worth it.

Beth, THANK YOU for the wonderful comments! You saying that the website is "easy to navigate for someone like me who's not too tech savvy" is PRECISELY what we were hoping to produce!

And, lest you think this was entirely a labor of love, Mom DID pay me! :)
