And after making the first quilt which was for my son.. he's only a year so he didn't require a whole lot of quilt... I got inspired logged on to Etsy and ordered up some fabrics for my monkey not being sure that I would ever make another quilt, I ordered every fabric I thought at the moment was cute and went with it..so this quilt is busy busy busy... and let me say through the process I almost didn't want to make another one or even finish that one..it was a fight with the machine.  Either way, I finished it, and I have plans to make more.. I think I am actually addicted to this, more so than my modge podge..

It was amazing before I started making my sons quilt I couldn't find a single thing that was clear to help me.. after I was finished.. there seem to be a million sites out there. I followed Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial on YouTube for this one.  Love them!!!

I did make a pillow for her too, but I didn't get a snapshot of it.

First quilt I made..

I had no instructions or any sort of real guide to follow..I had been wanting to make one for a LOONNGG time but thought it would require too much and be way to expensive to make, but one day as I was going through my blogs, I saw a post of The Inspired House Wife.. basically she was talking about making a quilt for the victims of the Tsunami, a childs quilt. She didn't give instructions just pretty much snapped shots as she went along, and I thought hey I can do that.. so I got out my materials..and somewhat followed along.

And this is what I came up with..

The pillow pattern is from Cluck Cluck Sew - Sprocket Pillow.
