I've Been Bitten...Again!

Well, it happened again! I stayed at Mom & Dad's for a week and got bitten by the quilt bug! I was first infected over 10 years ago, when I lived at home for the 2nd time. Mom & took a class together. We made a baby quilt. It was a 9 patch/single patch combo or something like that. We both still have those first quilts.

I've made a few more quilts over the years. I made a "Crazy Eights" baby quilt for my godson for his baptism two years ago. Before that, I made a "Rusty's block" a few years ago when my long haired Calico kitty, Jazzy died. It was my therapy. Other than that, I haven't done too much quilting. I've started a few, though!

Well, after perusing my mom's quilting magazines, I really got hungry to get back into it. The fact that my friend, Kimie is having a baby in October is the PERFECT excuse!

I was really wanting to make another Crazy Eights, Rusty's block, or try a Yellow Brick Road. The problem is, I can't seem to find any of the patterns! We moved into this place almost a year and a half ago and I really haven't done any quilting to speak of since then, so I have no idea where all of my quilting stuff is! Grrrrrr.

So tonight I set out looking for free patterns online. There are lots of great ones, but I have a certain "look" in my head. Maybe I'll find one of the ones I mentioned tomorrow.

Stay tuned for more quilt adventures! I'll try to post often. Since quilters also cook, I'll post the occasional recipe here and there too! Oh, and my little girl is my most favorite topic, too, so no doubt you'll be hearing about her milestones along the way too!
