Is this not the yummiest quilt you ever did see? Well, sadly I did not win it from among the 20,000 some entries, but it got my mind spinning. I have not been able to stop thinking about it since laying eyes on it. I don't quilt, and really never planned to due to my impatience and supreme lack of perfectionism, but I am feeling that changing. All I have to say that if I ever do make this quilt, you had better bet that I will not be giving it away! Honestly, the creator of it is my new favorite person. On a whim, I emailed her asking what pattern she used to make it. I really didn't expect an answer. Within hours she emailed me back and although she didn't use a pattern, she wrote out simple, clear, step by step instructions. Who does that? I have trouble even responding to emails from my friends and family. I am inspired both to take this new project on as well as be a better email returner. I hope I can conquer at least one of those goals in the next month or so. I really want to make two, one for each of my girls in their new bedroom and then paint and decorate around it. Am I crazy?
