sew sweet

As the job hunt continues, I have decided to make the most of the time God has given me to work on relationships...and crafty projects...so I present to you:  The Quilt...my first one ever (if you don't count t-shirt quilts)

Two things that I love about this project:
1. I am creating something instead of buying it
2. I have lots of wonderful, skilled seamstresses to give me some tips and loan me their quilting gadgets...which is awesome!
 Sketch for the front...I am using white fabric for the majority of the quilt with navy blue with white prints for the star (inspired by The Lone Star Quilt by Bea Spoke Quilts)
The back of the quilt is navy blue chevrons on a white background with one gray or green chevron...not sure yet

There you have it...I'll keep you updated...also, I have made it 1 month without any clothing purchases :)

Much love,
Emily Elizabeth
