My National Quilting Day Quilt To Myself!

I make so many custom orders and for sale projects that I get lonesome to make one for myself. Last week I vowed to make one for me on National Quilting Day and this is what I came up with! I used a charm pack from RJR fabrics called Sumptuous Living by Robyn Pandolph. I have had this pack for a few years. Yes I mean years so here it is, Pretty right? I quilted it in a pink cotton thread. I used my Accuquilt Go for the butterflies and then I embellished them with some little vintage buttons I had. The butterflies add to the charm of the fabrics. I call it "Butterflies In My Garden"

When my sisters and I were very young all three of us loved to make things. I think that was the way kids entertained themselves in those days. Our mother sat us down with old clothes and needles and thread and we made our dolls clothes.
My creativity grew from there and I found myself in high school making all of my own clothes. I did get a lot of attention with my matching outfits including hats. Since I was shy maybe that was my way of creating my own world and at the same time getting attention.
I finally did get tired of making clothes and went into quilting. The first year I quilted I made every family member quilts, quilts and more quilts.
You can only make so many quilts and so many bags before you have no space left. What is a very nutty creative person going to do about this?? Well you are going to open an ETSY shop and sell some of this stuff, right??
My neighbor asked me to make her a T-Shirt Quilt and I have been doing that for over a year now. I take special orders through my Etsy shop. I have become very busy with this business and will continue to create t-shirt quilts as long as their are customers that want them.
