A Bit of Backstory...

Hi Everyone (which is actually no one... yet)!

I'm Rebecca, and this is my brand new, shiny blog. I am very awkward doing new things at first (probably why I haven't done all that many "new" things in my nearly 30 years), so if there are ever any readers of this blog - you will have to bear with me and my "newness" at this!

I'm keeping this blog to chronicle my sewing endeavors, which is also a new activity of mine. My husband bought me a sewing machine in August 2010 (wonderful man that he is)

... and I had never sewn a stitch in my life before then. I originally wanted the machine to make a quilt for my oldest daughter for her 5th birthday. It was my first quilt and I completed it just in time for her to wake up with it on her special day.

Here is the beautiful fabric we selected together (Bliss by Bonnie and Camille for Moda) bought from The Sproutz Store (WONDERFUL shop)

Here's the finished product

After this first quilt, I was officially addicted! I loved the entire process. Needless to say, my little Brother cs600i has been virtually smokin' since then with tons of projects (small and not-so-small). I've sewn up bags, wall hangings, simple blankets, and quilts for my mom (the Oz quilt from my first post), my twin daughters (for their 3rd birthday last month), and my mother-in-law (for her 60th back in January)! But those will be for another time, another post :)


  1. AHA! Your "No-one" is officially a someone! First Follower! I am looking forward to following your craft adventures. It's never too late to try something new.

  2. Heh, nice start for quilting. You did an awesome job. Check my blog out for Blended Fabric Quilts, go to and follow me for tips and tutorials on a long list of "Quilter Help Notes" I'm just putting it all on the computer as I get ready to launch my new line of fresh, modern quilt patterns in Aug. 2011
