Wanted: Quilt Needs Quilter

This yellow and purple baby quilt is all ready to be quilted. All that is needed is someone to sit at the machine and go for it.

I got this far this past weekend, thought I might get in a few hours yesterday, but didn't. Maybe today?

Yesterday's hours flew (I mean FLEW) by. I spent a bit of time working with my web designer daughter putting the finishing touches (you know, those last minute 526 little tweaks) on my website that we hope to go live with this week. The site will offer my one-of-a-kind handmade baby quilts for sale. It's something I've wanted to do for a looonng time, and with the help of my daughter, it's very, very close to becoming a reality. (Feel jittery excitement here.)

Stay tuned for the announcement of details soon.

Hi, Beth - Thanks for the kind words! I didn't get to work on this quilt again today . . . more work on the website and a little necessary house cleaning. Tomorrow is another day!

I followed a link from ChickenMama's blog here - who knew I was only one click away from heaven all this time?? I too love quilting and never get tired of looking at lovely pictures of quilts. Looking forward to exploring here, and at your new website when it's ready :)

I really like that you can see the stitching so well in this shot. Very nice!

I wonder what the background of your blog would look like in a subtle fabric print? Wouldn't want to do too much and make it too busy, but it could be nice.

I'm also wondering if you might be able to include some pics of babies snuggling in your quilts....that would probably be a good marketing idea.

Love the new blog!

Hi, Jenyfer! Thanks for commenting. I, too, love to see what other people are creating.

Your Christmas table runner for the sale reminds me that they (runners) do make really nice gifts at holiday time. Unfortunately, my stash of Christmas fabrics is really down to the dregs right now. Shopping opportunity? ;o)

Hi, Claire - Chicken Mama and I have worked with a fabric/quilted piece background on my website but, for some reason, it doesn't show up on Internet Explorer so anyone not using Firefox wouldn't be able to see it. (Go figure.) We thought it was a great idea, too, . . . but.

We were just talking yesterday about getting pictures of the quilts with little munchkins "modeling" them! Something we will definitely follow up on.

What did you think of the website?

The purple is looking lovely!

Claire said...

I think it looks great! And, I did go through the purchase process and it was very easy.

Hi, Diane - Thank you very much!

Claire - Thanks for taking the time to do a "test run" for us. Great to hear it went well.
