Welcome to Bountiful Heirlooms:
I have always been a hobby person. I thought that I would document my hobbies -- quilting, decorative painting, cross stitching -- through a blog. I am also a teacher by nature, so I'll be sharing tips, tricks, tutorials and more.
One of my nephews and his wife are expecting their first baby in March, so I've got to get busy on a baby quilt. I ran across a cute pattern in the Connecting Threads catalog and have decided to modify it slightly for my soon-to-be-born great niece. (Not sure why is she a "great niece" rather than a "grand niece" -- since her grandmother is my sister, "great niece" never sounds right to me.)
I found out that they are decorating the baby's room in pinks and browns -- so I'll do the quilt in those colors (which is easy since I have lots of fabulous pink and brown fabrics).
Here's the inspiration quilt:
And here is my variation:
I'm primarily using Lucien Antique Rose fabrics in pink and brown which I bought a month or two ago, but will add some other fabrics from my stash. You can see them at Shabby Fabrics.
