Welcome to Angelfishy's blog!

there are quite a few blogs out there worthier than mine, simply because they are a bit more consistent in their posting frequency. but you'll see that I have a few things to be proud of, dabbling in quilting, and other needle arts.

"Did you make that for me?"

Here is one of my quiltmaking cheerleaders. He is always checking out what I am working on, then breaks my heart a tiny bit when he asks, "Did you make that quilt for me? Is that for me?"
I do plan to make a transportation theme quilt for his birthday in a couple of months, as he's already outgrown the crib size train quilt I made for him, which was just a panel that I practiced my machine quilting skills on. I already have some fabrics in mind--the Paisley Party from Red Rooster. Minus the paisley. Paisley patterns are some of my favorite to work with, but it's the complementing fabrics in that line that I'll use--they are not full of flowers, and full of color. Just for him.
I just hope someone doesn't beat me to the ebay store that has the fabric for about 1/2 price compared to the quilt shop.

December 2012:  the transportation quilt is yet unfinished.  However, he was glad to get the Star Wars quilt from his older brother recently.
